DIY Henna Hair Mask

Hello beauties. I hope you are all well. I am on my way to Barcelona today for a well deserved vacation, so I hope it is sunny where you are. If you follow my posts, you might have already guessed that my hair is one of my treasures. I spend so much time taking care of it and trying to get it to grow {if you have any tips for hair growth, please leave them in the comments}.

You can have a look at my haircare routine, my hair growth journey start length check and my hair growth journey 3 months update just so you are aware of all that's been happening hair wise. I recently got my hands on some colourless henna and decided to share a post on this DIY henna hair mask. I love using colourless henna as opposed to the usual henna as I do not want to colour my hair, I just want to give it all the nutrients henna brings. Unfortunately, I can't seem to always find it in stores.

How to strengthen your hair and add shine


1 Egg
1-2 tbsp Olive oil
Warm water


Warm your olive oil a bit in a small bowl {for this I usually use the microwave}. Pour in your henna, break your egg and put it in the same small bowl. Mix all of these together. It should make a relatively thick paste which doesn't look very pleasant. Add a little warm water at a time so you don't make it too watery as this will cause it to most likely drip down your face when you apply it on your hair {be careful and don't use water that's too hot or you may end up having breakfast/dinner in the shower, featuring scrambled egg}. Once you have reached a smooth consistency, apply this to your dry hair. Leave it in your hair from 30mins to a couple of hours. Wash it off, then shampoo and condition as usual.

What it does

Colourless or neutral henna has astringent and cleansing properties. It strengthens your hair, promotes nutrition of hair follicles and improves its structure which makes it great not only for damaged hair but also for normal hair. Eggs are a source of protein and are a great substitute to the protein shampoos sold in stores. Eggs contain vitamin A, D and E. These vitamins prevent thinning, protect you hair from the sun and improve the texture and health of your hair. Fatty acids in the egg also add shine to your hair. Finally, the olive oil coats your hair making it look and feel healthier, tames frizz and softens your hair. After the use of this hair mask, your hair will be much stronger, the colour of your hair will be brighter and your hair will look & feel so much healthier.

What type of hair it is best used on

Dry, damaged hair. But it can also be used on normal hair for improving its appearance and making it healthier.
