I am Arielle a college student who's having fun with the trial and errors of life.

Supplies & Ingredients

  • Virgin olive oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Mayonnaise
  • 1 egg
  • 2 bowls
  • Fork & spoon

This is what the mixture should look like with all ingredients combined. I know it looks gross but trust me it's well worth it.

Home Remedy Hair Mask

In a small bowl take about 1 tablespoon of olive oil and microwave it for 30 seconds, or until the oil is warm. You then dip your finger tips in the olive oil and message your scalp.

In a separate bowl add one tablespoon of coconut oil and microwave until it is completely melted. This should take about 30 seconds. In the same bowl crack an egg and whisk the ingredients together. The last ingredient to add is 2-3 tablespoons of mayonnaise. Give all the ingredients a good mix. Your mixture should turn out creamy with an unappetizing look. When you think the ingredient are mixed well place it in the microwave for 30 seconds or until it is warm.

Now you’re ready to apply the mask to your hair. Section your hair and apply the mask to your hair. Then place a shower cap over your hair, to hold in the moisture, for about 20 to 30 minutes. The time is determined how damaged your hair is. After 20 or 30 minutes it’s time to rinse your hair. With warm water rinse the mask out of your hair. After the masked is rinse out, shampoo and condition your hair. Make sure your shampoo and conditioner does not contain sulfate, because it is harsh on your hair and will strip the oils out. The shampoo and conditioner I used was Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger. After shampooing and conditioning your should already feel the results.

After Rinsing the Mask

I stuck to my normal routine of washing my hair. After shampooing and conditioning I toweled dried my hair and added Garnier leave in conditioner, a small amount of olive oil to my scalp and hair and heat protector. When blow drying my hair I kept it on medium so I wouldn’t completely fry my hair. I styled my hair with a Royale flat iron.

This home remedy mask really works! The mask repaired my hair, added shine, and made it softer. I recommend doing this once a week. Now it’s your turn, try out this home remedy hair mask and write a comment how it worked out for you.

Benefits of Ingredients

Olive oil is rich in vitamins A, E, and antioxidants. By massaging your scalp with olive oil this promotes blood circulation to stimulate follicles and strengthens the strands of your hair. Because it is a natural moisturizer, olive oil helps moisture your scalp and reduces dandruff. Coconut oil helps retain hairs natural moisture and makes hair fibers stronger. Coconut oil also acts as a sealant, meaning it coats the outer layer hair fibers and protects and conditions. The protein in coconut oil makes the hair thicker, stronger, and obtain more lust. Mayonnaise also helps protect strains of your hair from environmental damage and from styling products. Adding this ingredient helps condition the hair and reduces splint ends. As everyone knows eggs are rich in protein. This makes the hair stronger and less easily to break. The egg also makes the hair manageable and smoother. This ingredient also helps add shine.
