The best part about homemade hair masks is that they can be made with natural ingredients that are easily found in your fridge or pantry cupboard, and there are different recipes for every hair type and concern.
Curly Hair: Avocado is the top ingredient to use as their texture and fat content make them a great deep conditioner that soften, moisturize and impart shine to hair.

Frizzy Hair: To add a natural glow to dull frizzes combine two ingredients, banana and almond oil that will soften dry frizzes and moisturize them. Banana is made up of 75 percent water which makes it a great natural moisturizer and almond oil will serves as an excellent conditioner that will provide natural shine, strength and hair growth.
DIY Mask: 2 ripe bananas and 1-2 teaspoons of almond oil.
Dry & Damaged Hair: The key to healthier hair is brown sugar which, is a great exfoliant for the hair that helps get rid of those dead skin cells from your scalp and any leftover residue build-up. By also adding olive oil it will produce soft and shiny hair by locking in the moisture and preventing dryness of the scalp, hair breakages and split ends.
DIY Mask: 2 tablespoon of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of olive oil
Coloured Hair: To keep your colour-treated hair happy, use honey, pumpkin and yogurt. Honey will provide moisture which is what chemically treated hair cries out for. Pumpkin is for a healthier scalp and helps strengthen the hair from the inside, and yogurt will help to replenish the protein lost during the process of hair dying.
DIY Mask: 1-2 tablespoon of honey, 1 cup of pumpkin puree and half cup of yogurt
