To this paste add 1 spoon full of castor oil and also add few drops of essential oil.
Now mix everything well. Our DIY strengthening and conditioning hair mask is ready.
APPLICATION OF DIY STRENGTHENING AND CONDITIONING HAIR MASK
Comb your hair well and detangle your hair thoroughly. Now take the hair mask and apply it all over your scalp and hair lengths. You can also use a hot towel to steam your hair. Leave it for about 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Then wash it with a mild shampoo. You can skin conditioner since this hair mask leaves your hair soft and conditioned. I don’t condition my hair whenever I use this since it makes my hair soft and silky and extra conditioner may weigh down my hair. Use this once a week for smooth and silky hair.
