When your hair is dry and frizzy, it needs a special something.
And that special something is — moisture. Yes, lots of moisture for your unruly hair. A well-hydrated hair looks softer, smoother and without a doubt stunning.
You don’t need to do anything fancy to moisturise your hair. As simple as spraying some water (rosewater works better) on your hair and then sealing it with almond oil or argan oil will tame the fly-aways and will bring back shine and luster to hair.
And if you are up for some extra pampering, let me suggest this yogurt and honey hair mask. This is a quick fix for dry, lifeless hair. It will put plenty of moisture and shine into your tresses.
To make this mask, you need yogurt, honey and olive oil — all common and ordinary ingredients. But they can make your hair extraordinarily beautiful. Why these three, if that’s your question…
Yogurt is full of protein, which helps strengthen the hair shaft, making them less prone to damage and split ends. For your scalp health, yogurt has lactic acid. Its gentle cleansing action helps to clear away dead skin cells that gather on your scalp and cause it to become itchy and flaky.
Honey helps your hair absorb and restore moisture. And moisturised hair equals super soft and silky hair. Honey is also pH balancing and antiseptic, which make it good for your scalp too.
Olive oil is a superb hair softener. It’s oleic acids offer great moisturising and conditioning effects. Your hair will be more elastic, so less breakage and easy to comb. Plus the vitamin E and polyphenols in olive oil rejuvenate hair follicles and encourage strong, healthy hair growth.
Let’s get making….
To make this mask you will need:
Stir all of the ingredients together until well mixed.
How to use:
You can use this mask right before you shower.
Apply the mask to your hair and scalp (you can use it on dry or damp hair). Put on your shower cap or wrap your head in muslin cloth or a towel. Leave this on for 20-30 minutes.
Wash as normal and let your hair dry naturally. Do this mask once or twice a month to restore and maintain your hair.
Enjoy your soft, shiny hair!

If you have dry hair, use this technique to keep your hair soft, shiny and frizz-free. While your hair is still damp, take a few drops of the oil in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and work it through your hair, paying attention to the ends. You can use any light oil such as argan, almond or grapeseed; or you can also use butters such as shea. This will lock the moisture into your hair shaft and add plenty of shine and gloss to your hair.
