DIY: Hair Damaged Masks


Mask with castor oil, honey and shea butter

Castor oil strengthens and deeply nourishes damaged hair. Honey, as mentioned previously, is an excellent emollient and regenerating. Shea butter is an extraordinary ingredient for the care of our hair: it regenerates, soothes, moisturizes and nourishes.

First of all, especially in the winter months, warm 1 spoonful of shea butter in a bain-marie to make it soft. Next, in a bowl add the shea butter, 3 tablespoons of castor oil and 2 of honey. Stir until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. If the mask is too thick, add a little warm water. Apply everything on the hair, massage to promote the microcirculation and make sure that the ingredients penetrate deeply. Always use a cap or transparent film. Leave on for about 20 minutes and wash the hair with a specific product for worn-out hair.

Henna and banana mask (intensive)

Olive oil has emollient and moisturizing properties. Banana is a very nutritious fruit rich in vitamins and minerals. Precisely for this its composition is a very valid ally for the health and well-being of our hair. Neutral henna, on the other hand, is the natural remedy par excellence to improve the structure of the hair. In fact, it restructures the hair from the root, avoids the formation of split ends and gives shine. Unlike the classic henna, it does not release any kind of coloring.

Add in a bowl, hot water and a quantity of neutral henna powder (about 100 gr) suitable to form a creamy paste. Crush the pulp of 1 ripe banana and add it, together with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, to the previously obtained creamy paste. If you feel that the final mixture is too solid, you can add more hot water. But I recommend that you do not overdo it otherwise the mask will be too liquid and hardly will remain on the hair.

Once you have reached the right consistency, spread the compress over the entire crown. Leave on for about 60 minutes using a headphone or transparent film. Finally, switch to normal washing with a restructuring shampoo.
