Why not give your hair a treat with this DIY moisturising hair mask which is perfect for dry hair!
First of all, I should say that the main ingredients of this hair mask are avocado and banana which means there is no way that it’s ever going to look pretty in any way. I’ve made it loads before and never shared it because it literally looks horrible in every photo I’ve ever tried to take of it.
I’ve just made another batch and decided to share it anyway because it’s too good not to share so we’re going to need to just pretend that it looks nice in the photos. 😂
Everything that goes into this moisturising hair mask is known to be good for your hair so there are so many great benefits in one little pot and it’s super easy to make which means you can whip up a batch in no time at all.
- 1 Egg
- 1 Avocado
- 1 Banana
- 1 tablespoon Honey
- 1/4 cup of Milk
- 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil (in it's solid-state)
- A food blender of some sort is ideal here because the smoother your hair mask is, the easier it is to apply.
- An airtight jar to store your hair mask in.
- Honestly, this recipe could not be easier to make - just add everything into a food blender and give it a blast until it's smooth and combined.
- Pop into an airtight jar and store in the fridge until you're ready to use it.
This will last up to a week if you're storing it in an airtight container in the fridge.
When you're ready to use it, just work it into your hair and leave for 25-30 minutes before rinsing it off and then using your usual shampoo to clear any residue.

Bananas improve manageability and shine, prevent and control dandruff, and moisturize your scalp. Bananas are rich in potassium, natural oils, carbohydrates and vitamins, which help soften the hair and protect the hair’s natural elasticity, preventing split ends and breakage. Source: Hairfinity

Honey is an emollient. It seals the moisture in your hair, keeping it conditioned and shiny. This reduces breakage, which is often a cause of slower hair growth. Source: Stylecraze
Applying egg yolk topically to your scalp can infuse the root of your hair with vitamins. This means that the new hair will grow out stronger and be less prone to breakage and shedding. When your hair doesn’t fall out as much, it becomes fuller. It can even seem like it’s growing in faster. Source: Healthline
The calcium and proteins along with the vitamins it contains are very beneficial in our diets, but also as a hair treatment, seeing as milk-based products work to restore natural shine and luster to the hair while strengthening its structure Source: Allure
