Are you experiencing very dry hair? Or very dry ends? This DIY hot oil treatment mask is for you. It only uses two ingredients so perfect for the wallet and super easy to create.

  • 1/3 cup shea butter

Always having hair fly aways and frizz? Try this mask:

Frizz can be caused by damage, the environment or both — and some types of hair are inherently more prone to it.

This oil acts as a protectant and can help fortify strands, and make your hair look incredibly healthy.

DIY hair mask ingredients:

  • Dab of castor oil

The steps:

  1. Rub a dab of castor oil between your hands.
  2. Glide a very thin layer over your hair. Make sure you don’t use too much, as this can make your hair appear oily.
  3. Use a wide tooth comb to work the oil around your hair. This mini mask works well if the oil is evenly distributed.

Experiencing an irritated scalp is never comfortable, especially if it is accompanied with flakes. We love green tea for many health reason, but also to calm an irritated scalp. This is an anti-inflammatory mask which helps to hydrate and soothe the scalp.

  • 1 cup of green tea
  • 2 drops of peppermint oil
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar

The steps:

  1. Mix mask in a small bowl
  2. Massage the mask in your scalp and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Use your normal shampoo and conditioner to remove the mask. We recommend rinsing with lukewarm water.
  4. Use a wide tooth comb to remove any knots, when applying the conditioner. Work your way from the bottom of the strand to your roots, to avoid any excessive pressure on your scalp.
