Homemade Hair Mask for Dandruff, Hairfall & Shiny Hair: D.I.Y.

Hello beauties 🙂

If you have read any of my previous posts, you might have seen I am a huge d.i.y person! There is something about d.i.ys that I totally love. They are easy to make, you can make changes according to your need and they are inexpensive as well as have tons of benefits. I feel one must surely take some time out during weekends to treat their hair with natural products. Masks are a great way to boost up your hair and make them healthy. So on that note, today I will share with you an easy D.I.Y.hair mask, that will help you get shiny, healthier and smooth hair. This mask will also promote hair growth and reduce hair fall. So it’s like an all-in-one hair pack, that can be made with ingredients in your home. Let’s see what  we need.

Step 1: Collect all your ingredients. Next in your food processor add 1 banana (after removing its peel), ½ onion, 4-5 cloves of garlic, coriander leaves and ½ tbsp hung curd. Turn on the food processor and wait till a fine paste is formed. I suggest using only hung curd as this prevents the mixture from being too runny. Don’t add any water.

Step 2: In a bowl mix, together honey, lemon juice and olive oil.

  • Application:
    Due to the presence of hung curd, the mixture won’t be too runny. Also, if you churned your mixture well, the texture of the mixture would be smooth.
  • Now start applying the mixture like you would apply henna to your hair, i.e keep dividing your hair in various parts and apply the pack. Once your have covered the entire scalp, apply it to the length of the hair.
  • After you have applied a generous layer to your hair, tie them up in a bun and wait for the few minutes. Next if you wish you can cover your hair with a shower cap.
    Wait for 45 mins to 1 hour and then wash.
  • Use your regular shampoo to rinse away the pack. You might have to use the shampoo twice to get rid of the pack entirely. Follow up by a conditioner.

  1. Hats off for being a diy person Vanya. I am kind of lazy about these, but I appreciate others who can make their packs because natural is way better than stuff available in the market 🙂

    1. Thankyou so much Rakhi 🙂 I use it once a week, or if I am lazy I’ll do it once every 2 weeks. You can do it once every week 🙂 however if in any case your scalp is extremely sensitive, use only 2-3 cloves of garlic if you are doing it every week 😀 hope this helped :*
