5 Yogurt masks that repair damaged hair

5 Yogurt masks that repair damaged hair

A healthy head of hair always looks good. There are a number of products on the market that can be used to achieve healthy hair. The concern is that many of those products are harsh to your hair, so instead of giving you better results, they damage your hair. Fortunately, yogurt is a readily available natural ingredient recommended for natural hair masks and can often provide better results than some store-bought products. Let's find out why yogurt is so beneficial.

Yogurt is more than just a tasty treat

For a long time, yogurt has been known to soften hair. Yogurt can be applied to the roots, rubbed on the skin, or spread on the hair strands, depending on the hair problem you want to solve. The protein found in yogurt helps strengthen the hair shaft, preventing split ends and hair damage. The lactic acid in yogurt helps to hydrate the hair, and when rinsing, it helps to clear away dead skin cells.

Yogurt has medical and cosmetic effects on the follicle, scalp, and roots of your hair. Yogurt is packed with several nutrients such as riboflavin and niacin, which help strengthen the strands from the root, and vitamin B12 that boosts hair growth and prevents dandruff. Yogurt is also a good source of biotin and choline, which helps restore damaged hair while stimulating blood flow to the follicles. Calcium aids in giving volume, strength, and density to the hair, and iodine and phosphorus strengthen hair follicles from the roots while adding shine to your curls.

The following masks will not only provide the hair nourishment from the yogurt, but they also include natural ingredients your scalp will love. As an alternative to a DIY mask, the Hair La Vie Mask comes ready to use out of the bottle. Eleven natural ingredients, including keratin & essential oils, will go along way in bringing seriously dry or damaged hair back to life. For added benefits, you can substitute half of the yogurt in each of the recipes below for some of the Hair La Vie Mask.

Yogurt recipes for hair nourishment

1. Yogurt with quinoa

Protein helps to nourish dry hair. On the other hand, quinoa helps repair strands. Other botanical oils like raspberry seed oil, macadamia oil, and sweet almond also help improve the texture of the hair. It also adds an unbelievable shine to your hair. This hair mask should be used twice a week for proven results.

2. Yogurt and honey mask

Unruly and dry hair can be hard to manage. A lack of moisture causes dry hair, so it's important to take special care by providing moisture to your dry hair and scalp. When hair is well hydrated, it is flexible, well-defined, and feels softer. Honey helps draw moisture from the air to your hair and has both anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties that help prevent dandruff and soothe an itchy scalp.

Ingredients

½ cup yogurt

¼ cup honey

2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl until well mixed, then apply the mixture to your scalp and hair by massaging it. Wear your shower cap in a muslin cloth and let it rest for about 30 minutes. Rinse your hair and let it dry. Enjoy your shiny hair. Repeat this process at least twice a month to maintain the glowing hair.

3. Yogurt hair mask


Ingredients

1 cup of yogurt

Instructions

Take a cup of yogurt and whip it. Apply it on your scalp, hair, and hair ends by massaging it well. Cover your hair with a shower cap and let it rest for 20 minutes, then wash your hair with a mild shampoo. 

4. Yogurt and strawberry hair mask

This mask's nutritional components, such as coconut oil, eggs, and yogurt, help repair damaged hair. Coconut oil is responsible for stimulating hair growth, and the yogurt softens the hair. Strawberries add shine, and eggs help to recover the lost minerals and vitamins that nourish the hair. When you use this mask, your hair becomes visibly silkier and soft.

Ingredients

¼ cup of yogurt

3-4 strawberries

2 tablespoons of coconut oil

1 egg

Instructions

Take the coconut oil, strawberries, and yogurt and blend them until you get a uniform paste. Add the egg to the paste and blend gently. Apply the mask to dry hair and let stand for about three minutes, covered with a shower cap. After, wash hair with a natural shampoo. This process should be repeated once every two weeks for healthier-looking hair.

5. Yogurt and olive oil hair mask

Yogurt works wonders for your gut and overall health, and it also wakes sleeping hair follicles by promoting hair growth. Olive oil helps condition the hair, and fatty acids are responsible for strengthening hair follicles. Sulfur in eggs helps promote hair growth and balances oil secretion, which helps to soften hair.

Ingredients

1 egg

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 tablespoons yogurt

Instructions

Mix all the ingredients in a blender until you achieve a smooth consistency. Apply the mixture onto wet hair and massage gently. Cover your hair with a shower cap for 15 minutes. Wash your hair using warm water.
