When Nina was visiting in June, we had to have a spa night. It’s a girls vacation tradition, right?! So that’s what we did! Both of us had some issues with our hair that needed correcting so we went to Pinterest to find DIY hair masks. I chose one for build up and she chose one for deep conditioning.
Ahhhh, my hair. My love/hate relationship with my hair. It’s thick, it’s fine, and it’s sometimes a little too healthy. But then I moved to Florida and learned about build up. There are lots of things that can all cause build up to gather on your hair.. . . hard water minerals, shampoos, conditioning masks, hair styling products and the environment. Build up while gross also reeks havoc on your hair making it dry, brittle, unmanageable, static-y, curl resistant, dull, heavy and lots more. My hair is already heavy, unmanageable, and curl resistant so I don’t need build up adding to it. Thankfully, Maskara came through and gave me a lovely hair mask with things I already had in the kitchen to fix it up.
1/3 Cup Baking soda
4 T Water
Mix together until it’s a paste. Then (starting with the ends) massage into your *hair.
Leave it for 10-15 minutes then wash as usual.
* For recently color treated hair always try a test piece first! *
end result? It worked wonderfully! The build up in my hair from tons of sand, salt, hair products, and no washing was washed right out. My hair was left clean and silky smooth . . . back to that feeling of almost too healthy. Be sure to head over to Nina‘s blog to see how our mask for deep conditioning worked out.
Have you ever tried a diy hair mask? How’d it work out?
