Dandruff Busting, Hair Hydrating DIY Hair Mask and Conditioner

Winter can bring on many hair woes; for me it’s a flaky scalp and dry hair. Unfortunately, treating one of the two can lead to the worsening of the other condition. For this reason, I decided to delve a little into natural remedies for dry hair and dandruff. Through some research and lots of trial and error, I discovered two great DIY recipes. By using two easily available ingredients you can either make an effective pre-shampoo mask or post-wash conditioner to combat dandruff and dry hair. And the best part is that they literally take two minutes to make with ingredients that you already have in the kitchen!

What you need: Yogurt, Olive Oil, a mixing bowl, a mixing spoon and a measuring spoon and cup (not photographed).

Recipe and Application

For Pre-Shampoo Hair Mask:
Mix in four tablespoons of yogurt with one tablespoon of olive oil. Keep beating this mixture until its consistency and color resembles that of mayonnaise. Apply onto to hair and scalp before shampooing, just like you apply hair oil or conditioner. Keep on for at least thirty minutes (the minimum amount of time it takes your hair/skin to absorb things) and then shampoo your hair. No need to apply conditioner. Follow with your usual styling routine.

Just a note about this recipe. Because I have mild dandruff and dry hair, I use a mixture of four parts yogurt and one part olive oil. If your main woe is dandruff, change the recipe to five parts yogurt and one part olive oil. Alternatively, if you want to target dry hair, use three parts yogurt and one part olive oil. If you have very long or very short hair, just keep the ratios in mind and you can make more or less of the product.

For Conditioner:

Mix in one cup of yogurt with one teaspoon of olive oil. Mix it good. Unlike the mask, the texture and color of this won’t really change. Just make sure the Olive Oil is blended evenly into the yogurt.

Apply onto to your scalp and hair after you have shampooed your hair. Rinse thoroughly and dry/style your hair as you do usually, but skip any hair serum or leave-in conditioner because you won’t need it. This conditioner is suitable for all hair types, and no need to modify it for dry or oily hair.

Other Uses: You can also use the mask for your face and the conditioner on the body for even, moisturized skin. Also, although I won’t recommend it, the conditioner can make a nutritious in-shower snack. Y’know just in case hunger strikes while bathing 😉

Why it works: All of us are familiar with Olive Oil’s moisturizing properties on skin and hair, but the oil also hydrates the scalp, and, thus gets rid of the flakes and itchiness. As for the yogurt, while the protein in it hydrates and strengthens the hair, the lactic acid cleanses the scalp with its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.

Will you try this mask and conditioner? Have you tried it before? Let me know in the comments section!

    1. Try the conditioner, Poo. Unlike prepackaged conditioners, this doesn’t make your hair flat and oily the next day. It really helps reduce the time between washes! 🙂

  1. Thank you for sharing this easy DIY
    I am going to try this…I have Never ending dandruff which has now became a part of my scalp (!)
    But, How many times we should apply this? Twice/Thrice a week or continuously?

    1. Hey Tusti,
      Just apply the conditioner every time after you wash your hair. It cleans up the scalp and fights further buildup. Do the mask on the weekend.
      Just make sure you use just a tsp of oil for the conditioner and mix it in well 😀 You’ll notice a decrease in itchiness instantly!

  3. “the conditioner can make a nutritious in-shower snack. Y’know just in case hunger strikes while bathing” hehe he . This is super simple and I am trying this for deffo tomm morning itself . Thanku Devie<3

    1. LOL, MSD…you get my cheesiness 😉
      Try it out, I’d replace bottled conditioners with this already if I wasn’t so lazy and such a product junkie 😛

  4. Devie….thanks for sharing this DIYs with us, I am going to definitely try them. The pics look so yummy…..curd never looked so yummy before 😛 My winter hair woe is hair fall. Whatever I do, I cannot control hair fall during winters, what should i do?

    1. Jomol,

      for the winter hair fall have you tried the honey cinnamon and olive oil mask that was posted on IMBB. I tried it twice a week for 2 weeks and trust me you will love it. hair fall seriously reduced ….. i am going to continue this once a week…… left it in between coz i was down with fever for the past week… hope this helps…………..

      1. Jomol,
        Are you taking Biotin as a supplement? It not, I’d highly recommend it. From what I’ve discerned , we have similar skin/hair woes and it will help for sure! 🙂

  5. super DIY devie 🙂 I have been using curd as hair pack before shampooing and its very effective . will try this next time for sure. thx..

  6. will it remove all my dandruff?? my hair is really dry and i have dandruff problem too. thatsway i use hard conditioner for my hair.

      1. just one small doubt, will it leave my hair oily-oily. I mean should i do it just one weekends when i dont have to go out

  7. i’m definitely giving it a go, especially since u say it prolongs the time between washes, sometimes my hair gets dull just a th nxt day of shampooing 🙁

    1. For the that was the main plus. This won’t feel like a “conditioner” in the wash or even when the hair is wet. But the hair dries super smooth and doesn’t go flat the next day (I hate that too!). 🙂
