5 Natural Hair Masks That Give Damaged Hair Some TLC

Wondering where to find the best home remedies for damaged hair? How about looking in your fruit bowl?


Damaged hair has many definitions. These range from dandruff, fine, limp or thinning hair, to dry or frizzy hair, oily hair, or dull, weak and lifeless locks. And the reasons for these are many - pollution, sun exposure, chlorinated water, excessive shampooing, colouring and styling products. You can’t change your environment; how do you ensure that no further damage is done to your hair.

While there are many commercial products available that promise wonders, these could only add to your hair woes as they dump more harsh chemicals on your hair. The best way to return your hair’s natural shine, volume and lustre is by caring for it the natural way. That is by formulating your own home made hair mask from ingredients found in your refrigerator or your fruit bowl.
