This super simple and nourishing DIY hair mask hydrates dry, damaged hair starting from the roots and all the way to the tips. The rich concoction has been used for thousands of years by many cultures to ensure healthy, fast growing hair. The all natural ingredients in this DIY hair mask work together to strengthen dry, brittle strands, moisturize the scalp, and enrich the hair with proteins. This in turn encourages quick and healthy hair growth.
DIY Hair Mask Recipe
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tbsp ginger juice
- 2 tbsp aloe vera gel
- 1 tbsp castor oil
You can usually find ginger juice at your local health food store, but I like making my own out of fresh ginger. If you have a juicer, simply juice some ginger.
Mix all ingredients together and apply to dry, unwashed hair. Make sure to saturate all the hair starting from the roots to the tips. Leave on for 30 minutes and wash out.
Use this mask for hair growth 2-3 times a week. You should start seeing hair growth after about a month of usage.
How it Works:
Egg whites are packed with protein, which the hair absorbs. In order for hair to grow fast and healthy, the strands need to feed off of that protein, and egg whites are one of the best proteins you can feed your hair.
Ginger juice is known for its antioxidant properties and therefore detoxifies the scalp and hair, encouraging healthy and strong growth. Ginger also contains potassium and magnesium which are crucial for fast hair growth.
Aloe vera gel contains proteolytic enzymes which repair skin cells on the scalp and in turn, generates growth. Aloe vera also smooths out frizzy, dry hair, prevents itchiness, and stops dandruff.
Castor oil is one of the world’s best hair growth oils as it stimulates growth straight from the root and encourages healthy, strong strands.
The combination of the above ingredients make for a perfect hair growth trifecta. Like all homemade hair growth concoctions, be patient, and be persistent. Usage of the hair growth treatment must be constant (2-3 times a week), hair dying must be kept to a minimum or not at all, and within a month, you’ll start noticing healthier, faster growing hair.
