Haircare is expensive. There's no escaping the costs of cuts and conditioning treatments. Or is there? I don't recommend cutting your own hair, but it is certainly possible - and even recommended - to make moisturizing treatments in the comfort of your own home.  

The combination of ingredients for the mask below is almost magical. The olive oil contains vitamins and antioxidants, the egg provides protein, while the bananas help maintain your hair's natural look. The honey hydrates and the coconut oil helps promote growth. Oh, and even the mayonnaise – so often frowned upon - helps to revitalize locks with its fats and proteins. 

Have I convinced you of the super powers of a DIY hydration? 


  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil 
  • 1 egg 
  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise 
  • 1 banana 
  • 1 ½  tablespoons of honey 
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil 



Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor to make a smooth paste.
