How to Apply the Hair Mask
First, rinse your hair and allow it to somewhat air-dry. When your hair is still slightly damp, you can apply either of these homemade hair masks.
- Using your fingers or a hair brush, apply the hair mask from the roots to tips, covering each and every strand.
- Cover your hair with a shower cap and let the hair mask sit for about 30 minutes.
- Rinse your hair with water to remove all the particles of the mask.
- Shampoo your hair as usual, but skip the conditioner if you normally use one.
- After your hair is dry, the difference will be quite easy to see and feel.
If you have dry and damaged hair, use either of these masks once a week. Those who have normal hair can use the masks once every two weeks.
- Simply grinding a handful of hibiscus leaves and flowers along with a little water and applying the paste on your hair will also benefit your hair.
- Be sure to wash the leaves and flowers to remove dust or any other impurities before using them in your mask.
- Whenever possible, use fresh as well as healthy hibiscus leaves and flowers for these hair masks. Do not use leaves from a diseased or pest-infested plant.
- A handful of leaves will grind smoothly in a smaller jar. If you only have a bigger jar, increase the quantity of leaves to be ground.
- For grinding the leaves, you may also have to add a little water.
- You can even use a pestle and mortar to make these wonderful hair masks.
- You can use fresh aloe vera gel extracted from an aloe leaf as a substitute for soaked fenugreek seeds.
- If you suffer from dandruff or an itchy scalp, you can add a little lemon juice to the mask.
- Hibiscus powder is available in the market, which you can also use to make these masks.
