Natural Hair Mask Recipes To Get Back That Bounce!

posted in: Hair | 6

After my previous post on the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer, a few people commented that it’s rather pricey. And I have to agree, it is expensive! Whilst I think the elasticizer is amazing, I also understand that many people don’t want to spend that kind of money. There are many other ways to bring life back to your hair, and I’ve decided to put together a couple of natural hair mask recipes, that you can make yourself to give your hair back its bounce.

Natural Hair Mask Recipes To Get Back That Bounce

Coconut Oil

coconut oil for hair

Coconut Oil is a common fix for practically everything these days, including your hair! The main benefit of coconut oil is that it helps retain the natural protein in your hair follicles. It’s not for all hair types. Fine, thin hair usually lacks protein whereas, thicker, coarse hair does not. If you have fine hair then using coconut oil will make your hair stronger with more volume. And people rave about this!

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a ton of benefits for hair. It has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe an itchy scalp. It’s a natural conditioner and helps locks in moisture, giving your hair added shine and softness. Lastly, it’s packed with antioxidants which reduce the damage to hair. All these benefits help the hair to grow quicker and thicker.


honey for hair mask

Not only is honey delicious, but it’s also an emollient which means that it seals moisture in your hair, thereby, working as a conditioner. It is also rich in antioxidant properties which protects it from damage. Honey is also great for preventing infections and psoriasis and dandruff due to its antibacterial and antiseptic qualities. With all these benefits, honey will boost your hair growth and add some life to your hair.


lemon-natural hair mask

Most of you will be familiar with using lemon in your hair for natural highlights. I use it in my kid’s hair every summer and love it! What you may not be familiar with is the tons of other benefits it does to your hair. Lemons are high in acid which helps tighten the hair follicles which in turn, helps prevent the hair from falling out. They are also rich in vitamin C which boosts the production of collagen, which helps hairs elasticity. Lemons also have anti-fungal properties which help keep the scalp healthy.


eggs for hair growth

Who would have thought eggs could be good for your hair? Well, prepare to be amazed! Eggs are great for conditioning hair because they contain a lot of protein and egg protein helps rebuild damaged hair. They also have conditioning factors that help make your hair stronger and in turn, helps it grow faster and better. So go and save some of your eggs for your hair!

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar is popular in food, and it has many health benefits. Its made from fermented apples which are enriched with vitamins, minerals and acids. These benefits make it perfect for strengthening and adding shine to your hair. In particular because of it being very acidic, which helps balance out dry and brittle hair (which is usually higher in alkaline). Apple Cider Vinegar is also high in vitamins B and C which are anti-inflammatory and help exfoliate the scalp reducing things like dandruff.


avocado health benefits

Avocados are not only delicious to eat but are also amazing for your hair (and your face too!). They are enriched with vitamins, fat, protein and natural oils which make them perfect for softening hair. The natural oils help protect and rebuild damaged hair. They are packed with vitamins B and E which repair the scalp and help the hair grow.

My Thoughts

As you can see there are many natural hair remedies and some of them do overlap in their benefits. All the different methods that I’ve mentioned can be combined with each other to create a customised hair mask for your hair. Another factor that you should consider is how much mess and patience you have, an olive oil hair mask is a lot simpler than an avocado mask. You just have to weigh up how much time and patience you have! All the different natural hair masks recipes that I’ve mentioned here are amazing and will do wonders for your hair.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post on natural hair mask recipes. Do you have a different natural product that you use for a hair mask? I’d love to know what your fav is! Let me know in the comments below:)

    I love natural hair masks! All of these ingredients are familiar to me. I’ve never used avocados so that is something that I will need to try. My hair is thick so I noticed my hair holds moisture with olive oil over coconut oil. And I love the shine that apple cider vinegar gives to my hair. The smell is horrible but the shine is great!

      Avocados work amazingly- slightly messy but worth the results:)

      I agree, apple cider vinegar doesn’t smell great! Make sure to use a nice smelling shampoo after!

    Coconut oil is pretty much the go to item in the beauty world at the moment. Could literally be used for tons of things. 

    For me, lemon, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and honey would be a perfect blend. I’ll look to make use of this particular recipe, would it work just fine or is a little too many ingredients.

    Thanks for sharing, really informative

    I’m am so excited I found this article.  I seem to have more hair falling out after shampooing now than I did in the past.  The products sold for this problem are expensive, so I’m very happy to discover that lemons can tighten hair follicles and help keep my hair where it belongs.  I might mix the lemons with olive oil for a little added boost to protect against damage.   I can’t wait to give it a try!
