5 HAIR MASK RECIPES FOR OILY HAIR
Oily hair are a total turndown for everyone. Even males feel the hit of it with irritability and a sticky feeling, so women are totally justified in feeling bad about it with our length of hair. So what exactly is oily hair and what does it need to leave us alone?
Well every hair strand of ours has a capacity to produce sebum of its own which is nothing but the oil that is produced out of it. For some people these hair produce excessive sebum which then starts to show up on the hair as oil and gives a very irritating feeling. To take care of the same, one needs to use some products which are conducive to oily hair and prevent this problem from reoccurring.
There are a lot of products available in the market for the specific use of removing excessive oil production and also there are a lot of home remedies as well which I am sharing below for your perusal. Do try these and let me know if you could derive some benefit out of it. I will be happy to know about them.
Strawberries Hair Mask:-
Yes! You could just use 1/4th or ½ cup of strawberries depending on your hair length and density. Just blend the strawberries and sieve the seeds. Now put the blended mixture on your head for close to 10 minutes with massaging it properly for the entire time length so that it reaches the scalp properly. Rinse it off with water after you are done. This fruit is enriched with vitamin C and hence would add a lot of shine and luster to your hair as well apart from secreting the entire sebum. You can use this mask twice a week for better results.
Yoghurt, Baking Soda, Egg White and lemon juice:-
This mask is very useful when it comes to oily hair. All you need is to mix all these ingredients and apply on your hair. Usually 1/4th to ½ a cup of yoghurt is mixed with 1-2 tablespoons of lime juice and one egg white well beaten. 1 tablespoon of Baking soda is required to be added. Now apply this mixture to your scalp alone as the baking soda could dry your hair. Keep this mixture on your hair for 30 minutes and then wash it off with your shampoo and conditioner.
Honey, Aloe Vera and Lime Juice:-
This is another great mask for oily hair. Mix one tablespoon of lime juice to one tablespoon of honey and add one tablespoon of aloe vera gel to it. Apply this mixture for 20 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water. Avoid hot water as it may lead to dryness of hair. Use normal shampoo and conditioner for rinsing off.
Banana and Honey Hair Mask:-
This one would also work wonders if your hair are entirely oily and you do not find it amusing to keep shampooing and expecting it to work all day. Take one banana and blend it. To it, add 1 tablespoon of honey. After mixing it well, apply it on your hair and keep it for 15 minutes. This would ensure that the hair stay free of oil for longer duration.
I hope you find your right hair mask and get rid of oily hair soon!
