Benefits Of Homemade Hair Masks for Dry Hair

The primary purpose of using a homemade hair mask is to avoid harsh chemicals, irritants, artificial dyes, and drying ingredients from penetrating your scalp. Dry hair already has brittle and weak cuticles, insufficient natural oils, and a general lack of strength. Avoiding chemicals allows your scalp to regain its vibrancy and its healthy condition. 

Homemade masks use yogurt, mayonnaise, honey, carrier oils, eggs, and other moisturizing ingredients to repair the damage and give your hair a new lease on life—without using chemicals. Natural ingredients have biotin, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants that improve the look and texture of dry hair.
