As the temperature starts to drop, it’s time to overhaul our beauty and skincare routines, to help ensure we protect it from the damage that harsh winter elements can cause. When the humidity drops and the air outside is cool and dry, the water in our skin evaporates a lot quicker than it normally would, leaving us with dry and flaky skin. But did you know the same concept applies to our hair too? One simple way to combat dry brittle hair, is to treat it to a deep conditioning hair mask once a week, and we have the perfect DIY recipe that’s made from just two ingredients you can find in your kitchen, and it’s all thanks to our friends over at Little Green Dot!
While it may seem like a strange combination, this dynamic duo prove to be a dream hydration team! Full Fat Natural Greek Yoghurt packs a serious protein punch and offers your hair the kind of nourishment it needs to feel strong and healthy – plus the lactic acids are great for cleansing the scalp and helping hair follicles to grow. And as for honey, it isn’t just the taste that’s sweet… Honey is a humectant which attracts and retains moisture in your hair and helps to soften and smooth follicles.
We tried and tested this bad boy before a Saturday night out on the town, and had supremely soft and oh-s0-shiny hair to prove it. But perhaps the best thing about this recipe is, you can eat the leftovers!
Honey & Yoghurt Hair Mask
Here’s how to make it:
- 2 tbsp natural yogurt (full fat natural yoghurt)
- 1 tbsp raw honey
- Combine all of the ingredients together.
- Work the mask onto your hair, from the scalp to the ends.
- Give your scalp a good massage – you want the mask to cover your scalp.
- Leave the mask on for 15 -20 minutes.
- Wash as normal, but really well! If you use conditioner, just a small amount on the ends will do
- Do this treatment once a week to restore and maintain your hair.
