Some love them; some do not. Whatever your opinion is on hair masks, they are an efficient, natural, and safe way to give your hair the nutrition it needs.
You probably hear of hair masks, and the first thing that comes to mind is the popular ‘egg mask.’ Who would layer their hair and scalp with egg white and feel comfortable about it, right? I know. If you told me years ago that I would learn to appreciate it, I would call you a fat liar, and you had no idea what you were talking about.
Well, here I am telling you that it works, and I’ll let you know how. Say your hair is always dry no matter how many times you visit the salon. A few days with your new hairdo and the frizz is back. Frustrating, isn’t it? Maybe you colored your hair and you want it to stay vibrant and protect it at the same time – pick a hair mask.
Think of a hair mask as the bigger, buffer, and stronger cousin than your regular conditioner. While conditioners these days can be a hit or miss with their moisturizing target, hair masks are intense and rarely miss the mark. Whether you want to beat the frizz, pop that color, get more sheen, encourage growth or soften your hair? There is a hair mask for every need you have!
Hair masks offer much-needed hydration and nourishment. Sometimes we put our hair through a lot. When you are so busy with work or family and friends that you barely have time to take care of your hair, think about this: You don’t need to set a salon appointment to get your hair mask. You can do it right at home and go on with your errands while giving the butter, nutrients, and oils enough time to penetrate your hair and scalp.
My Best Hair Mask For Hair Growth
I’ll tell you why the egg mask is famous. Apart from the proteins, vitamins, and other nutrients that can benefit your hair, this particular mask is friendly for all hair types. Avocado oil is rich in antioxidants, and fatty acids and Shea butter helps soften my hair. Let’s not forget that this all natural and safe, so why would not pick this over a conditioner that may or may not encourage hair growth?
How To Use It (My Method)
- Egg white from two eggs
- Three tablespoons of avocado oil
- Shea butter (optional)
- Shower cap
Start with the egg yolk in a bowl and whisk as you add the other ingredients. Part your hair in sections and work the mixture throughout your scalp then throughout your hair. Put your shower cap on and let it sit for 30 minutes – this gives me enough time to carry on with my chores around the house.
When the time is up, rinse your hair off with cold water (you don’t want the egg yolk cooking in your hair). You can use lukewarm water if it is too cold.
As I said, you can come up with any hair mask you desire; you have to find out what your hair is missing, and create a hair mask to target the problem!
