5 Homemade Hair Masks for Hair Loss

Hair loss or hair thinning is a very common problem that most of us are likely to have faced at some point or the other in our lives. And while shampoos and conditioners claim to work magic on the problem of hair loss, the truth is that the application of harsh chemical laden products only worsens the problem. One of the most effective ways to treat hair loss is through home remedies, using natural kitchen ingredients.

In this post, I have put together the recipes of 5 homemade hair masks that effectively control hair loss. Let’s take a look at what these are.

1. Olive Oil and Egg Hair Mask:

Olive oil is rich in antioxidants and essential fats, while eggs are a rich source of protein. Both these ingredients deeply nourish the hair, restore softness and shine, and promote hair growth. Here’s how you can use these two ingredients in a homemade hair mask. Take 1 egg, 2 teaspoons of plain yogurt (used as the base and as a hair cleanser), 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Combine all the ingredients to form a smooth paste. Apply it evenly to your hair and scalp about 30 minutes before washing your hair. Afterwards, you can shampoo and condition your hair as usual. Apply this mask once a week.

2. Coconut Oil, Avocado and Rosemary Hair Mask:

Coconut oil is one of the best ingredients to maintain the health, strength and shine of your hair. Avocado is a rich source of healthy fats that conditions your hair. Rosemary essential oil prevents hair loss and promotes hair regrowth. Take half of an avocado and mash the pulp, 1 teaspoon of cold pressed organic coconut oil, 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel and 10-12 drops of rosemary essential oil. Combine the ingredients and apply it to your hair once a week before shampooing. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes before washing your hair.

3. Onion Juice and Honey Hair Mask:

Onions are a rich source of sulphur and promote collagen production, while honey is a great moisturizer for your skin and hair. Combining the juice of an onion and honey in a hair mask can do wonders to give you thick and luscious hair. Take ¼ cup of red onion juice and 1 tablespoon of pure honey. Combine the ingredients well and apply it to your hair and scalp for 30 minutes before washing it off. You can use this mask twice a week.

4. Honey and Castor Oil Hair Mask:

Castor oil is a very potent ingredient that is used to promote hair regrowth. However, in the case of a hair mask, it is best to use it in conjunction with another oil like olive oil, which makes it easier to rinse it off. Honey is rich in antioxidants and infuses the hair with moisture and nourishment. Mix 1 tablespoon of castor oil, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of honey, and combine well to form the hair mask. Apply it to the hair and scalp and wash it off after 30 minutes.

5. Indian Gooseberry (amla) and Aloe Vera Hair Mask:

Amla or Indian gooseberry is known to increase blood circulation in the scalp, treat irritation and infections, and stimulate the hair follicles to promote growth. Aloe vera helps repair dead follicles and stimulates growth. For this mask, you will need ½ cup of amla powder, 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel, 1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil (for extra moisture), and 10-12 drops of rosemary essential oil (to control hair fall). Mix all the ingredients well and apply the paste to the hair. Wash it off after 30 minutes. Use this hair mask once a week for best results.
