The Perfect Hair Mask To Beat Away Hair Blues
If you have sensitive hair or scalp and would want to maintain the pH levels of the hair, you would need to get a few things ready and ten minutes in hand.
- Egg – 1
- Honey – 2 tbsp
- Coconut oil – 4 tbsp
Blend the three ingredients in a blender and whisk it to a froth. Apply the same on your hair for ten minutes or until it completely dries off. Now what you need to do is to wash the hair under cold water. Once the first washing is done, apply a herbal conditioner to the hair and wait for five minutes. Massage the conditioner to the hair roots and the scalp, and wait for the conditioner to work its magic.

Use warm water now to wash away the conditioner. And the next step now would be applying a herbal shampoo to the hair. Wash it off with warm water and then give the hair a last rinse with rose water, which helps ward off the nasty egg smell completely.
If you do not have rose water, you could use the juice of a lime or maybe a few drops of vanilla essence to your hair. This would bring about more shine, sheen and bounce to the hair, and also would make your hair smell great.
Pat dry and do not comb! Wait for the hair to come back to a bounce and you would see that a comb is NOT NEEDED.
This is a formula that should be used thrice a week! Have fun with the hair masks using Coconut oil.
