I have been making this natural home hair mask for over 3 years now. (Thanks to my mother-in-law who first shared this recipe with me.) Over the years, I have been changing it up by adding more ingredients that can continue to improve the health of my hair. Here is my updated home made hair mask recipe for you to try. I usually apply this in my hair every 2 weeks.
*Makes enough for about 10-12 uses; may vary depending on individual hair.
(All the ingredients & products listed below can be directly found on my Super-Mama Beauty store front on Amazon. You can also probably find these at your local beauty supply store.)
-4 Cups Queen Helene Cholesterol Cream
-1 tbs of each of the following essential oils:
-"Espiritu de Canela"/Cinnamon Spirit
-Jamaican Black Castor Oil
-100% Pure Ginger Extract
-Tea Tree Oil
-Vitamin E Oil
-2 egg yolks
-1 red onion
Mix all of these ingredients together in a blender and pour into a jar. It's best if stored in a refrigerator.
When applying to your hair, make sure to do this when your hair is unwashed. I usually part my hair in 2 sections and start applying it at the scalp with a brush. Making sure to part my hair as I go, I apply allover each area of the scalp. Lastly, I apply it allover the rest of my hair and work my way down to the ends. Put on a plastic cap or you can use saran food wrap to cover your hair and then put a shower cap over it. You can leave the treatment on for 20-30min. (*If you have a hair dryer, put a plastic cap on and sit in the dyer while the treatment is in your hair.) However, I like to put it on early on in the day so it stays in my hair for a couple hours of the day, while I get cleaning done around the house. Before washing out the treatment be sure to massage your scalp thoroughly for about 5 minutes.
My favorite shampoo to use once I rinse out the mask is, the LuxeOrganics Biotin Shampoo & Conditioner. It is a hair thickening shampoo with tea tree oil, mint, and rosemary oil which feels amazing in the scalp after a deep conditioning mask. It also removes any of the smell from the onion and ginger in the mask and leaves your hair smelling minty fresh!
