4 Simple DIY Hair Masks for Coloured Hair

After you have dyed your hair, whether at the salon by a professional or at home with a hair colouring kit, it is important to maintain the colour and the health of your hair with some hair treatments and mask.

Four Easy to Prepare Hair Mask Recipes for Coloured Hair

However, some hair masks that are available in stores are made with ingredients that are can be harmful to your hair.

That is why you should switch to DIY hair masks that are made with natural ingredients. Here are some simple hair masks that you can make at home to treat your coloured hair.

1. Honey, Pumpkin, and Yogurt Enriched Hair Mask

The most important thing for coloured hair is moisture because the colour can fade easily if your hair is dry. That is why you need to use ingredients like honey because it is a humectant that can draw in moisture and help to hydrate the hair follicles.

However, hydration is just one part of the treatment because you also need to strengthen the hair which is where the pumpkin and yogurt come in.

Both the pure pumpkin puree and yogurt are great in providing protein that will strengthen the hair strands.

The ingredient for this mask is easy to obtain but you need to make sure that the pumpkin puree and yogurt that you use do not contain any sugar or additives.

Method of Preparation and Application

  • To make this mask, combine the pumpkin and yogurt in a 2:1 ratio and then add in about two tablespoons of honey.
  • Apply to wet hair and leave it in for about ten minutes.
  • Once the time is up, just rinse off all the mask residues with shampoo and use a Silicone-Free conditioner to lock the hydration.

2. Avocado and Almond Oil Rich Mask

Coloured hair can feel brittle and rough, so it is ideal to use ingredients like avocado to help give your hair shine and softness.

Adding almond oil into the mix is also great because the oil is packed with Vitamin A and Vitamin E that can contribute to hair growth as well.

Like other natural masks, it is important to use pure avocado puree and almond oil because any foreign ingredients in the two may affect the mask and the results.

Method of Preparation and Application

  • You can use a whole avocado or just half an avocado, depending on the length of your hair.
  • Just mash the avocado in a manageable paste and slowly mix in a tablespoon of almond oil.
  • Once the mask is ready, apply to clean and wet hair.
  • Massage the mask into the hair strands and then leave it on for half an hour.
  • After that, rinse thoroughly and use shampoo to get out all the avocado and oil residue.

3. Hair Mask Recipe Using Eggs and Honey 

Here is another mask that uses honey but is combined with raw eggs. Since eggs are rich in protein, they work really well to bring shine and softness to your hair.

Another problem that happens with hair, especially after it had been coloured treated, is that it can turn frizzy, but this mask can help combat that.

Like mentioned before, honey is a humectant that can draw in moisture for the hair and help retain it, so it is great for hair masks.

When choosing the fresh ingredients for hair masks, a good tip to remember is that if you think it is good enough to eat, it will be good enough for your hair.

Method of Preparation and Application

  • Crack the raw egg into a bowl and mix in a tablespoon of honey; make sure the blending is proper.
  • Apply to wet hair and massage the mask into your hair and scalp.
  • Leave it on for half an hour and then rinse with a mild shampoo to off any excess.

4. Protein-Rich Hair Mask Using Eggs and Olive Oil/Mayonnaise 

We know that both eggs and olive oil are great in strengthening the hair and providing moisture, so they are always the top choice for DIY hair mask ingredients.

However, there is one common grocery item that has combined these two ingredients and that is mayonnaise.

While it might seem weird to some people, the condiment contains all the ingredients that are great for your hair so you can actually use it as a hair mask.

However, it is important to know that some mayonnaise may contain additives for preservation or flavourings so if you are going to use it as a hair mask, read the ingredient label first and choose one that is purely mayonnaise.

Method of Preparation and Application

  • You can also mix raw eggs with two tablespoons of olive oil to get the same effect if you are not keen on using mayonnaise for your hair.
  • Like the other masks, apply to wet hair and leave it to sit on your hair for about 20 minutes. Rinse off afterwards.
  • The smell of the mayonnaise may linger so thoroughly wash it with your shampoo to get rid of the smell.
