STEP 2: MIX INGREDIENTS TOGETHER

Once you have selected the hair concern ingredients you would like to use, mix them together in a bowl until they are a paste-like consistency.

The amount varies so you just have to wing it when it comes to how much of each ingredient to include in the mixture. Just keep the tips below in mind.

  • Mix more of the thicker ingredient and less of the thinner ingredient to prevent too much dripping. Make a larger batch of your mixture if you have longer hair
  • If you have oily hair only use egg whites, if you have dry hair only use egg yolk, if you have normal hair use the whole egg.
  • Lemon can lighten your hair and also burn your scalp if you use too much. So keep that in mind if you choose to use lemon in your mask.
  • Apple cider vinegar should also be used sparingly as it will burn your scalp if you use too much
  • if you have added beer or apple cider vinegar to your mask and you are just not feeling the smell you can add essential oils. The best for hair are lavender, rosemary, cedarwood, lemongrass, peppermint, or chamomile

STEP 3: APPLY MASK TO YOUR HAIR

Once your mixture is ready to go it’s time to apply the mask to your hair. Follow the tips below for application and then keep the mask on for 15-20 minutes.

Your hair should be damp before applying the mask. Either wet and towel dry it or wet it down with a spray bottle.

If the mixture is too drippy apply the mask over the sink or bathtub

Massage the mask into your roots and then work the mixture down to the tips Put on a plastic shower cap to keep everything inside

STEP 4: RISE OFF THE MASK

The final step is to rinse the mask out of your hair with cold/slightly warm water. Read the points below for more rinsing tips.

You should shampoo as normal, but if you used any of the oils, honey, or mayo you won’t need to condition. Make sure to rinse the ingredients out completely or it will leave a weird residue.

If you used egg in your mixture make sure you do not use hot water to rinse your hair. The hot water can cook the egg and then you have to get all the little bits of the egg out of your hair. Not fun.

I am definately going to start by trying the “Dry Hair” Mask with only 3 ingredients pretty awesome.
