Generally speaking, we humans have around 150,000 hairs on our head (depending what natural colour your hair has). So, imagine what a stressful life each one of them has to have with all that dyeing, blow-drying and styling. Therefore, from time to time you should treat your hair very well. The best way is, of course, with natural ingredients! I personally like to use homemade products when possible. And this time I, when I saw my nearly empty milk box, I said to myself “Let’s use this”. 😀
Today you will learn a very quick to do homemade hair mask you apply before washing your hair. It’s a very nourishing mask and great for damaged hair. The fat in the milk and the moisture in the honey help to soften your hair.
All you’ll need (depending on the length your hair – this is for medium-length):
- a small bowl
- a spoon
- 3 tablespoons of milk (or plain yogurt)
- 2 tablespoons of honey
You can first microwave the milk so that it’s warm and then stir in the honey until it melts. Apply the mask on your hair. I like to use it especially on the ends. (When I treat just the ends, I add two tablespoons of yoghurt and just one tablespoon of milk.) Now, leave the mask for half an hour on your hair. Afterwards, rinse it off with lukewarm water and wash your hair with shampoo.
Voilà! Super shiny and soft 🙂 .
