Do It Yourself Deep Conditioning Hair Mask

Whether you’re relaxed or natural, hair masks are a great way to strengthen and moisturize your hair. I use a hair mask for at least 30 mins every wash day and my hair loves it.  My favorite Macadamia Deep Repair Masque is almost $30 by itself. As a mom, there are plenty of things I can spend $30 on every month. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with making my own hair masks. Not only is it cheaper, but it gets the job done. I’ve decided to share with you all a really quick and easy hair mask you can make from your own home.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Olive Oil
  • Honey
  • 2 eggs
  • bowl
  • mixer or spoon


Add the eggs, honey, and olive oil to a bowl. Mix it all together and apply. Simple!

I suggest applying the mask to damp hair to make it easier to distribute. It will be sticky, so make sure you’re wearing a shirt or towel that you don’t mind messing up. To make the mask more effective, put a plastic cap over your hair and a warm towel over the cap for at least 30 minutes. When you wash it out, I promise you’ll feel a difference.


Besides helping you save money, there are many benefits to using this diy hair mask. For one, the protein from the egg yolk helps strengthen your hair.  The honey and olive oil helps adds moisture to your hair and scalp. It also helps keep split ends at bay.  The fact that you more than likely have all of these ingredients in your pantry is just an added bonus.

There are many different combinations you can use for your own diy hair masks, but this one is my favorite so far. The next time your hair needs a revamp, go to your kitchen first. Your hair and your wallet will thank you.

    I’ve tried olive oil and honey, but I’m curious to see how much better it works with eggs. I’ve been so lazy with my hair regiment since I became a mommy. Time to start setting a better hair care example for my girls! Thanks for the recipe!
