Maintaining your hair in a good shape depends on numerous factors, such as the problems you might suffer from. There are also a few masks designed with general purposes, not to mention the ones designed for a quick hair regeneration. All in all, they work wonders on the hair, whether they are used with particular purposes or for general maintenance. You may not observe the effects right away, but the long term results will surprise you.

The good news is that such masks can be prepared with ingredients that everyone has in their kitchen.

Mustard Mask

mustard maskThe recipe for this mask is fairly simple. It is entirely based on the fact that mustard heats the scalp skin, so it provokes an intense blood flux toward the hair. This is what stimulates the growth. In order to prepare this mask, you require 2 tablespoons of mustard powder, 2 tablespoons of warm water, 1 yolk. 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Mix the ingredients and stir until you obtain a thick paste. Apply it on the scalp, but without touching the whole hair. Cover the hair with a plastic foil, then cover the foil with a towel. The general idea is to maintain the heat.

Keep the mask on your hair for 20 to 60 minutes, depending on how hot it feels. Rinse the hair with warm water and apply a nutritive balsam for 10 minutes. The mustard mask must be applied once or twice a weak. Results become obvious after a couple of months.

Castor Oil Mask

Instead, get 2 tablespoons of castor oil, 10 drops of oily vitamin A, 5 capsules of vitamin E, 1 tablespoon of honey and the juice from half a lemon. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until you obtain a homogeneous paste. Apply the mask on your hair, then let it stay for half an hour. Shampoo right after and rinse thoroughly. Rinsing hair with this mask on might seem challenging, so do not be afraid to abuse the water consumption.

Olive Oil and Yolk Mask

Dilute the result with a glass of water, then massage the scalp with this mask. Use slow and gentle movements. Once you are done applying the entire composition, give it 30 minutes to absorb all the nutrients. Rinse with nothing but warm water and do not apply anything else on your hair.

Get ¼ a cup of simple yogurt, an egg and ¼ a cup of mayonnaise. Get all the ingredients in one bowl and stir aggressively until the mixture is homogeneous. Massage the scalp until you get rid of all the paste. Use it on both your hair and scalp until everything is covered.

Get a plastic foil or a shower cap to avoid oily “leaks”. You need to keep this mask on your hair for around an hour. As for rinsing, use a safe shampoo with no parabens, as well as cold water. For visible results, apply this mask about two times a month.
