Work it in your hair and leave it for half an hour. Then rinse and wash with your regular shampoo. You won’t stop touching your hair.

3. Oatmeal and milk mask for soft hair

If you dream of having soft and silky hair, then try this hair mask. All you need is a tablespoon full of oats, 1 tablespoon fresh milk and almond oil. Leave the mask on for 20 minutes and then wash with a gentle shampoo. It will not only soften your hair but also reduce scalp irritation.

4. Avocado and mayonnaise mask for damaged hair

Avocado is loaded with Vitamin A and antioxidants. Believe it or not, pollution and direct sunlight cause enough damage to our hair as it does to skin. A mix of avocado, mayo and olive oil is all that’s needed to prevent your hair from sun damage. Moreover, mayo moisturizes hair. Shampoo your hair after 20 minutes.

5. Banana mask for strong hair

Banana is a combination of Vitamin A, carbohydrates, iron and potassium. Hence, grind a ripe banana with a tablespoon of honey into paste. Honey acts as a moisturizer. When this mask is applied on hair, it results in stronger hair growth and stops split ends. This mask also works wonders on damaged hair.

6. Beer mask for that extra volume

You may be drinking beer often, but have you ever tried it on your hair? It’s no joke. Take half cup flat beer (no fizz), add 1 tablespoon sunflower oil and 1 egg.
