1. At-Home Hair Mask To Moisturize And Strengthen Your Hair

If you feel like your hair could be a lot more hydrated, then you can try this mask to give it a boost.

If you mix strawberries, egg yolk and olive oil, you will get a wonderful combination.

For this mask you will need:

2. At-Home Hair Mask To Remove Excess Oils

If you feel like your hair is producing excess oils, then this mask may be the right one for you.

All you need for this one are yogurt, apple cider vinegar and lemon. As the yogurt and apple cider vinegar will get rid of any oils, the lemon will act as an astringent that will refresh your scalp.

For this recipe you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon

You will want to mix these ingredients together and apply them on your hair for about 10 minutes.

You should keep in mind that lemon acts as a natural highlighter, and if you don’t want that, you should also add 2 teaspoons of water to the mixture.

3. At-Home Hair Mask For Damaged Hair

It can be hard to find a good hair mask for damaged hair, but this one has everything it needs to help!

It contains honey that helps with the split ends, as well as avocado, bananas, brown sugar, yogurt and apple cider vinegar.

For this hair mask, you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon of banana puree
  • 1 tablespoon of avocado puree
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar

Simply mix everything together in a bowl and apply it on your hair for about 20 minutes. When the time is up, simply rinse the mask off and wash your hair as usual.

4. At-Home Mask For Longer Hair

If you are looking for an option to make your hair grow longer, then you should try this hair mask. The aloe vera will deeply moisturize your hair, while the cinnamon will stimulate your scalp for hair growth.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 tablespoons of aloe vera gel
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Simply mix the ingredients together and then apply it on your hair for about 15 minutes before rinsing the mask and washing your hair. If you have oily skin, you can replace the cinnamon with a few drops of lemon juice and fix that problem first.

5. Vegan Coconut Oil Hair Mask- Just ONE Ingredient

While some of the masks above are totally vegan-friendly, I wanted to add one more option for you.

This one uses no animal by-products- not even honey.

What you’ll need:

  • Coconut oil, in solid form

Scoop out some solid coconut oil (if it’s super hot out, put it in the fridge for a bit), and slather it all over your hair. Really work it into the strands.

Let it sit for about twenty minutes, rinse thoroughly, then shampoo as usual.

Word of warning, it is challenging to rinse all of the coconut oil out of your hair, but it’s SO worth it!
