Some recipes for home spa hair treatments include avocado conditioning masks, ripe banana masks and coconut cream masks. Since these home spa treatment recipes require the use of fresh ingredients, it is recommended to prepare them shortly before usage.
Avocado hair masks are used to promote hair grown. The oils and nutrients found in avocados prevent hair damage, add shine and give hair a healthy appearance. To prepare the avocado hair mask, mix two avocados, an egg and a tablespoon of honey. Apply the mask directly to the hair for 20 minutes, and wash with a soft shampoo.
A ripe banana mask is a great source of potassium. The oil and vitamins of this mask soften hair and protect the hair’s elasticity, preventing split ends. This mask can be made by blending a ripe banana with a cup of olive oil and one egg. It should be applied for 20 minutes and washed off with a soft shampoo.
The cholesterol and fat contents of coconut cream masks repair and condition damaged hair. This mask can be prepared by blending coconut flesh into a fine paste. Prior to application, make sure the paste is warm. This ensures that the coconut oils are in fully liquid form. Apply the mask, and cover the hair with a warm towel for one hour. After application, wash the hair with a soft shampoo.
