Dry and damaged hair is a common problem among many people, especially for women.  This is generally caused by the over-use of harmful hair care products and treatments, heat styling equipment, and everyday environmental factors such as extreme temperatures, wind and sun.

The secret to getting hair back to a healthy and manageable state is to replenish and maintain moisture in the hair and scalp.  There are a wide number of natural ingredients that have amazing beneficial qualities that can help re-invent your hair and restore its natural shine and vibrancy.  The best ingredients are those containing high levels of essential fatty acids as well as vitamins and minerals important for our hair.  These secret ingredients are typically cream-based indicating their intense moisturizing abilities such as avocado, banana, and egg.

Try out the following homemade recipes for the treatment of dull and damaged hair. If used on a regular basis you will start to notice a vast improvement in the overall condition of your hair.

Firstly, if you don’t want to make your own hair masks and instead want a ready made solution, I strongly recommend this Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque.

Hair Mask For Dull Hair

75g burdock roots
1 cup of almond oil (or sunflower oil)

Place burdock roots into a bowl and add almond oil.

Leave to soak at room temperature for 24 hours.

Boil mixture for approximately 15 minutes over a low heat then strain.

Apply mixture to hair and gently massage into hair and scalp in a circular motion.

Cover with a warm towel and leave in for approximately 1 hour.

Rinse and shampoo as normal.

Hair Repair Treatment

Recommended application is once or twice a week

1 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of brandy
1 egg yolk

Mix all ingredients together.

Apply mixture to unwashed hair and gently massage until hair is completely covered.

Cover with a shower cap or cling wrap then cover with a warm towel.

Leave in for approximately ½ an hour then rinse and shampoo as normal.

Conditioning Hair Mask 

1/2 banana
1/4 avocado
1 tablespoon of wheat Germ oil
1 tablespoon of yoghurt
1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
1 vitamin E capsule

Blend all ingredients together (excluding vitamin E), squeeze contents of vitamin E capsule into mixture and until completely combined.

Apply mixture to hair and gently massage to completely coat hair.  Leave in for approximately 15 minutes then rinse with shampoo.

Softening Hair Mask

1 tablespoon of chamomile flowers
1 tablespoon of comfrey root
1 tablespoon of nettle
1 tablespoon of elder flowers
1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar

Place all herbs in a pot, add just enough water to cover and boil.

Leave to stand for approximately ½ an hour.

Add vinegar into the herbal infusion and mix well.

Shampoo hair and slowly pour mixture over hair until completely covered.

Repeat 4-5 times.

Dry Hair Lotion

1 cup full cream yoghurt
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon of jojoba oil
1 tablespoon of beeswax pellets

Microwave jojoba oil and beeswax until melted.

Add yoghurt and egg yolk and mix well.

Apply mixture to hair until completely saturated; leave in for 20 minutes.

Rinse thoroughly with shampoo and condition as normal.

Try the above five hair masks and see if they transform your dry, dull and damaged hair. But, if making your own is not your thing, or you don’t have access to the required ingredients, then try this fantastic Macadamia Oil Hair Mask Formula.

It’s my favorite and combines a number of oils that are fantastic for hair, such as macadamia, Argan, tea tree and chamomile oil.

If you want to achieve soft, smooth, shiny and beautiful hair without using these hair mask recipes, then try Mira Hair Oil. It is a unique blend of seventeen natural and organic ingredients that combined work together to provide a powerful formula to transform your hair, eliminate dandruff, stop hair graying and promote hair growth while preventing hair loss.
