DIY hair growth / hydrating mask ♡



 What you'll need 
Olive oil
(Olive oil is amazing for maintaining shiny hair)
Honey
(Honey moisturizes while repairing your hair)
A spoon
A bowl
Shower cap/plastic bag
(Using a shower cap will help your hair retain heat which helps the mask sink in better)


♥ Want longer hair? You can also use the optional 
Fresh orange juice
(Helps fasten hair growth)
  Coconut oil
(Helps fasten hair growth and keep hair shiny)


First thing you're going to do is pour in the olive oil. I have really long thick hair so i'm going to be using a bit more than you'd need if you have medium length hair. If thats the case, you can simply measure it out by how much conditioner you usually use and just put double of that! Mine was 6 table spoons.


Next is the honey! I put in four table spoons of honey. Once the two, olive oil and honey are poured into the bowl you're going to want to mix it A LOT! Until it becomes a chunky consistency. If its too watery you can add more honey, and if its too sticky, add more olive oil. If you don't want to add the orange or coconut oil you can stop here!


So instead of the boring ingredients, I found out that oranges are actually REALLY good for your hair! Citrus fruits have something in them that actually help hair growth when applied to your hair! I would only recommend putting in fresh orange juice in the mask because bottled orange juice has preservatives and other things in it. So, just get about two slices of the orange and just squeeze them in with your hand. I didn't have any regular coconut oil so I used a little from the body shop pan of coconut oil I have. Although, I wouldn't recommend that because i'm not sure how its going to turn out.


The best kind of coconut oil is typically something that looks like this. You don't need to buy this brand in particular, but I just wanted to put an image in your mind of what it should look like if you go out looking for it!



Once everything is mixed up, it should look a little like this. Once you're all done making your mask take it into the shower with you! But make sure to keep it away from the water. Once you shampoo your hair, dry it out a little bit with a towel then put the mask on all over your hair, paying special attention to the ends and roots. Put on a shower cap/plastic bag. Leave it on for an hour, and wash it out and you're done! Your hair should feel and look healthier. Doing this mask on your hair once a week will keep your hair in tip top shape.

  3. I didn't know oranges could help too. :0 Did it lighten your hair? Since it's acidic and all.

    But yea, I know this works really well and is pretty much essential if you have chem. relaxed hair like me or chemically treated hair. *---* It also helps if you put your hair in a shower cap after and blow dry it with the shower cap on to seal all the moisture into your follicles! 8D

  6. Can olive oil be good for your skin too or would it be bad if you put it on your face? I've been getting a lot of acne and I don't want to try to put a bunch of chemicals on my face. I think you've made a post about skin care but I can't find it.

    1. Coconut oil is good for your skin, but I'd be careful. I'm pretty sure your face doesn't break down oils as well as the rest of your body does, so putting any oils on your face at all might be a bad idea.

    2. olive oil will make you breakout. i use coconut oil for my acne and i havent broken out.

    3. To clear acne overnight, you can take some fresh lemon juice and wash your face with it
      ( /!\ DON'T PUT ANY ON YOUR EYES). Keep it for about 10 minutes on your face and then wash it off.

  17. How much of the coconut oil? If you did put the amount I missed it somehow.. LOL Anyways, I put a lot of coconut oil in my hair one time and it took about 2 days, many washes, baby oil and something else to finally get it out, so I wouldn't want to put too much in this mixture.. Thanks : )

    ReplyDelete
  18. Just made some, just need to put in the orange "juice", so I'm quite excited to see how it turns out ^^
    I used homemade honey, not liquid.. So it's pretty sticky, but since my hair is pretty much broken, and to make it less sticky, I've put in some liquid aloe vera :D

  19. I have a friend that is 29 and slowly losing his hair. Right now it is long and he is afraid to cut it because it might show more that he is losing his hair. This is genetic and can not do much about it. Would you suggest him to cut it and start using hair loss treatments such as Rogaine? I don't know much about hair loss treatments and would love get an opinion or review about them from you.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow wonderful remedy and i just love it. I would definetely try this one for making my hairs long and healthy. It sometimes become necessity for some people to take hair loss treatment to stop hair loss or just to improve quantity and quality of hairs.

  21. Interesting. Though on average, we lose fifty to a hundred hairs a day, which is said that's a normal cycle. One thing that could scare a lot of people is that hair loss may be a sign of a more serious medical condition that needs an evaluation by a dermatologist and possible hair loss treatment

  22. seems odd, better off getting some shampoos that are known hair loss treatment. honey and olive oil might make you too sweet and sleek. lol.

  32. Thanks for the added recipe! I also make avocado and banana hair masks, that made my hair grow and use a product called Pro Naturals moroccan argan oil after each shower and it helps hair to grow stronger and healthier. Its online. Eat protein since hair is made from it, massage your scalp every night and drink enough water a day. You can take vitamin E supplements for healthy skin, hair and nails. Some people take Biotin and that seems to help. You’ll get much softer and shinier hair with all of that.

  46. my brother is always worried about getting bald because he loses much hair due to stress, so I gave NuhairRX Serum to him and after a couple of weeks we’ve seen a difference, now there’s no hair falling after he brushes his hair. It’s very effective and didn’t cause any allergic reaction or anything.
