What is a hair mask?
A hair mask is a tool, and the only tool that will help you get that movie star hair shine and strength. Just as a conditioner repairs and moisturizes your hair. A mask does this, but much more effectively. The reason being that a chemical-based conditioner takes time to work, and they may not be beneficial for everyone. Let us not forget that everybody has a different body, and it reacts differently to different stimuli.
But hair masks are made up of natural ingredients such as honey, eggs, yogurts, and oil.

Before grabbing materials, make sure you also grab a tight air jar to store your product. To keep it fresh and safe from impurities. For making this mask, you need the following things:
- Two tablespoons extra-virgin Olive Oil or Coconut Oil.
- One table-spoon of 100% pure Argan Oil.
- One tablespoon of Honey (preferably raw, organic honey).
- Optional: A few drops of lavender or essential oil of your choice for the scent and relaxing properties.
Add all these ingredients in a bowl and start whisking them together. It is important to note that the ingredients are thick. So you should heat the oil before you start whisking. This will make it easier to whisk and will also be done more efficiently. Remember to use a low flame, as ingredients can burn or lose their nutrients.
After making the mask, apply it deep within your scalp and till the roots of your hair.
