A good general hair conditioning masque is honey and avocado. You’ll need a very ripe avocado and some organic honey. The avocado will provide your hair with nutrients, especially vitamin E. The honey is an antibacterial agent. Mash the avocado and honey together to form a paste. Apply it to your hair, wrap in plastic wrap and rest for twenty minutes. Wash your hair gently. Once dry it will be remarkably healthy looking and soft.

Conditioning For Dry Hair

If your hair is dry, it is in need of some natural protein and some natural moisturizer. What could be better than egg and olive oil? You’ll just need a couple of eggs and three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) to give your hair a deep conditioning treatment. If the eggs are refrigerated, let the sit at room temperature for a while. Break them into a bowl and add the olive oil. Stir the mixture together gently. Apply it to your hair and wrap your head in plastic wrap to keep the mixture moist and hold in heat to accelerate your treatment. Rest and relax for twenty minutes then wash your hair as usual. Allow your hair to dry naturally for a healthy, beautiful shine and bounce.

Conditioning For Very Dry Hair And Scalp

Give your flaky, dry scalp an intensive moisturizing treatment with a mixture of almond oil, organic honey and banana. Mix two tablespoons of honey, half a ripe banana and half a dozen to a dozen drops of almond oil. You be the judge of the amount of oil your hair needs. Apply to your hair and cover with plastic wrap. Rest for twenty minutes and then wash out gently. Your frizzy hair will be smoothed and your itchy scalp calmed.

Treatment For Oily Hair And Scalp

If your hair is oily, try a lemon juice and apple cider vinegar (ACV) rinse. Use a quarter of a cup of ACV and a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice for a powerful astringent masque that will remove excess oil and built up conditioners and styling products. Additionally, it will strengthen your hair shaft, balance the pH level of your hair and scalp, cure dandruff and kill bacteria. This mixture can be applied to dry hair; however, it’s best to apply it as a final rinse after washing your hair. You will still need to let is set for about 15 minutes, so you may want to do this while taking a bath. Follow up your bath with a quick, cool shower. The cool water will close and seal the hair cuticle helping further to strengthen your hair.
