Here are five DIY hair masks that you can make at home using your favourite coconut-based hair oil and ingredients that are easily available around your home.

 

1. Coconut Based Hair Oil with Onion

Onion oil is a rich source of sulphur, which is known to promote hair growth and prevent hair fall. When combined with coconut based hair oil, it penetrates deep into your scalp to nourish your roots and strengthens them. Follow these simple steps to create a highly effective onion hair oil for hair growth at home.

Thinly slice red onions and add them to a boil. To this, add a generous amount of Parachute Advansed Gold Coconut Hair Oil. Heat this slowly using the double boiler method (Place the bowl of onions and hair oil in a larger bowl of water and heat it). This preserves the nutrients and ensures that they do not evaporate as the oil slowly comes to a boil. Once done, cool it down and strain the mixture into an airtight container. Gently massage it into your hair using your fingertips. Leave it on for about 30 minutes and wash it off using a shampoo of your choice.

Alternatively, you can also use the Parachute Advansed Onion Hair Oil, enriched with the goodness of red onion oil, thrice a week for healthy and long hair.

 

2. Coconut Based Hair Oil with Curry Leaves

In addition to their sharp flavour, curry leaves are a rich source of antioxidants. When you add them to coconut based hair oil, they help promote hair growth, prevent hair fall, and tackle concerns like premature greying.

Take a handful of curry leaves and grind them to a paste. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of Parachute Advansed Gold Coconut Hair Oil to this paste and mix well. Apply the mixture to your scalp and ensure you coat all your strands. Leave the mask for 30 minutes, and wash your hair as usual.

Need a more time-effective way to give your hair the extra nourishment powered by curry leaves? Opt for the Parachute Advansed Curry Leaves Hair Oil! It is a coconut-based hair oil enriched with the goodness of curry leaves. It works to reduce hair fall and control the factors that cause premature greying. 

 

3. Coconut Based Hair Oil with Eggs

Eggs are a rich source of protein. But did you know that besides boosting your diet, they could also work wonders for your hair? Human hair is composed of proteins and water. Thus, when you apply a raw egg to your scalp and hair, it nourishes and strengthens your strands so that they are not prone to breakage or damage.

The simplest way to create an egg-based hair mask is to whisk together an egg, a few tablespoons of henna and some coconut-based hair oil like the Parachute Advansed Gold Coconut Hair Oil. Apply the mixture to your scalp and hair, making sure to coat all of your strands. Leave the mask on for 30 to 45 minutes and then wash your hair with a gently cleansing shampoo.

The egg in this hair mask strengthens your strands and the coconut nourishes the roots. On the other hand, henna is a natural hair conditioner that softens your hair and lends it a beautiful, healthy luster. Apply this mixture once a week for soft, silky and long hair.

 

4. Coconut Based Hair Oil with Fresh Curd

Curd is known to be a great moisturiser and helps promote hair growth. When mixed with a coconut based hair oil of your choice, it nourishes your hair and locks in essential moisture, making your hair less prone to breakage caused by excess moisture loss.

Take a cup of fresh curd (you can also use hung curd) and two to three tablespoons of Parachute Advansed Gold Coconut Hair Oil. Mix well, apply it to your scalp and work down to the strands. Leave the mask for about 45 minutes, and wash your hair as usual.

This is a highly nourishing hair mask which addresses hair concerns like breakage, dullness, dryness and more. It nourishes your hair and locks in essential moisture to make the strands less prone to breakage. To ensure the best results, apply this mask once a week for long hair.

 

5. Coconut Based Hair Oil with Crushed Hibiscus

Hibiscus is listed in Ayurveda for its many benefits for hair. Commonly found in most home gardens, this flower is a staple to every Indian household.

Mix together 2 tablespoons of coconut based hair oil and some crushed hibiscus. Heat this mixture using the double boiler method and strain it when done. Apply this mixture to your hair, working your way from the scalp to strand, using gentle circular motions. Leave the mask for about 30 minutes, and wash your hair with a sulphate-free shampoo.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

1. Are the DIY masks mentioned here safe to use?

Besides being inexpensive and effective, these hair masks are made from natural and nature-based ingredients. So, generally speaking, yes, they are safe to use. However, if you are allergic to a particular ingredient, you should do a patch test before applying it.

 

2. Can I apply the hair mask on unclean or dirty hair?

The dirt and grease coating unclean or dirty hair prevent the ingredients of the hair mask from properly penetrating your hair and scalp and providing them with the necessary nourishment. Thus, the hair mask will not work as effectively as it should. Hence, we strongly recommend against applying hair masks on dirty or unclean hair.
