3 Easy Recipes for DIY Hair Treatments
Written by: Lupita Woo

We've all had our fair share of bad hair days. Here at The Stylist Handbook we have come up with 3 fabulous ways to make your hair more manageable. Whether your hair has been color treated since you were a teen or you are suffering from hair breakage, one of these treatments is for you!

1. Banana Hair Mask
Mix 1 mashed banana
1/4 cup honey
3 oz of plain Greek yogurt.

These 3 simple ingredients may sound a little bit like your breakfast but trust me it makes your hair so silky and smooth, you will look at bananas in a whole new way. If you have long hair, you may need to use more yogurt for the recipe to be enough. Coat dry hair with the mixture and leave on for an hour. Rinse and shampoo as normal. It locks in all the moisture that you hair will need for that perfect hair do.

2. Avocado Hair Restoring Mask
Combine 1 avocado
1 egg
1 tsp lemon juice until mixed well.

This recipe contains avocado which has rich moisturizing properties. Apply the mixture to damp hair and leave on for about 20 minutes. Rinse hair with luke warm water (hot water could cook the egg leaving a huge mess!) After you've rinsed your hair, shampoo and condition as normal. With this hair mask you will restore the moisture in your hair from using hair dryers and straighteners on a daily basis. When I tried this I was a little skeptical due to the egg. I didn't want to smell like eggs after my shower. But to my surprise I am now a believer!

3. Apple Cider Vinegar Clarifying Treatment
Mix 2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

The last but definitely not least, the Apple Cider Vinegar Clarifying Mask gives you that ultra clean feeling scalp. Like most people I'm guilty of using all type of products on my hair from anti-frizz serums, hairspray to leave-in conditioners. With three simple ingredients that may already be in your pantry you can get rid of any residue that hair products leave behind. You may want to heat the honey briefly in the microwave so that is easier to mix in. Apply mask to dry, dirty hair. Comb through with a wide-tooth comb or your fingers. Pin up your hair for 30 minutes to an hour. Shampoo and condition as normal.

Make sure you wear an old tee shirt or bath robe when doing these treatments, we don't want your fancy clothes to be a mess. I also recommend doing one of these at least once a month just to restore all the natural oils that your scalp produces.
