Maintaining healthy hair is not just limited in using shampoo and conditioner. We can also make our own hair mask to ensure healthy hair. Here is a recipe of hair mask for dry hair made from apple, lemon, and corn flour. Besides treating your dry hair, this hair mask can also treat your scalp from drying out.
1 or 2 big apples, or 3 or 4 medium sized apples, depending on the length of your hair
2 tablespoons of apple vinegar
1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon of corn flour
How to make :
Peel the apples and discard the middle part, before grating the pulp. Put the soft pulp into a bowl and mix it with the other ingredients, then stir them until thoroughly mixed.
Apply the mixture on your dry hair, and then wrap your hair with a soft towel nicely. Keep your hair covered in the towel for about 20 to 30 minutes.
Open the towel wrapping, and wash your hair with warm water. Use mild shampoo that has formula suitable for your dry hair (do not use anti-dandruff shampoo or any other shampoo with strong formula). Repeat the procedure if it is needed.
This hair mask is best applied once a week or depending on your need. Before you apply the mask, make sure your hair is clean and free from dust or any other oily residue, for they will make your mask become ineffective. Do not apply the mask too often (once in two days, for example), because there is any chance that your scalp might be irritated.
Also, make sure that you do not have any allergy to the ingredients mentioned.
To get maximum result, combine this treatment with any other ones that are suitable for your dry hair, like hair spa, using conditioner, or mild-formula shampoo.
