How To Make Homemade Hair Masks With Pantry Items

Avoiding unnecessary waste can create some of the best DIY projects. This blog will discuss how different foods and ingredients can become your next best DIY project. These foods will help you cut back on waste and help you practice simple self-care. Keep reading to learn how to get started making your own homemade hair masks with pantry items.

Identify Your Hair Type

Before you make a hair mask, identify what your hair’s needs are! Start with your scalp. Is your skin dry and full of dandruff, or are your roots perpetually greasy from your scalps natural oil? Next, examine the end of your hair to access breakage and damage. Once you know whether your hair lacks moisture or needs a revitalizing balance, you can start to create your own hair mask!

For Dull Hair: Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is the pantry gift that keeps on giving. This pantry item can be used for various health and beauty methods to help clarify hair, skin, nails, and your digestive system. Apple cider vinegar contains a high amount of vitamin C and B to replenish dull, lifeless hair. If you have a drier scalp, this hair mask will help reduce dandruff with its anti-inflammatory properties.

Let’s Make It!

  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Blend
  • Apply generously to hair
  • Rinse

For Dry Hair: Raw Honey Mask

One of the best homemade hair masks you can make with pantry items is a classic honey mask. If your scalp and ends are both dry, a honey mask will deeply condition and revive your hair. Honey contains emollients, which smooth hair particles, and humectants, which bond water molecules. Together, these two properties help to add intense moisture and shine to dry and brittle hair. If the raw honey in your pantry has crystallized, it can still be used as an upcycled hair mask.

Let’s Make It!

  • Two ripe bananas
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ olive oil
  • Blend
  • Apply to hair and let sit for 20 minutes
  • Rinse

For Oily Hair: Baking Soda Mask

If your natural oils are constantly making your roots greasy and clogging the skin on your scalp, a baking soda mask can help to balance your hair’s hydration. Baking soda contains alkaline, which has powerful absorbing quality. Using baking soda on your hair can help to absorb oils and rebalance your scalp’s pH level. Consider trying this mask to regain a balanced, healthy glow.

Let’s Make It!

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • Blend
  • Apply to hair and let sit for 30 minutes
  • Rinse

Whether your hair needs some tender love and care, or your pantry simply needs to be cleaned out, these hair masks are simple and satisfying treatments. Treat your hair to some intense, natural therapy and find a mask to give yourself some self-care.
