Honey is a favorite ingredient to use in hair packs. However, it may also promote hair growth. In this article, we discuss how honey can benefit your hair. We have also listed various DIY hair masks that could enhance your hair health.

Coconut oil and honey mask

Coconut oil penetrates the hair shaft and nourishes the hair from within. Due to its penetrative properties, it reduces protein loss. It creates a thin coat around the hair shaft and protects it from UV damage. When paired with honey, it nourishes and strengthens the hair. If you have shoulder length hair, blend half a cup of coconut oil with half a cup of honey. For those who have longer or shorter hair, adjust the proportions accordingly. Massage this into your hair thoroughly and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse the mask out with cool/lukewarm water and shampoo.

Eggs are packed with the right proteins your hair needs to grow. The yolk is known to stimulate hair growth in human hair follicle dermal cells. This pack provides your follicles with the nourishment required for healthy hair growth.

Beat two whole eggs and add half a cup of honey to the mixture. Mix the ingredients until you get a smooth consistency.Apply the mixture to your hair, starting at the roots and working your way to the tips. Cover your head with a shower cap and wait for 20 minutes. Rinse the mask out with cool/lukewarm water and shampoo.

Olive oil and honey hair mask

Olive oil has been used in hair care products for a very long time. It contains fatty acids like oleic acid, which help strengthen hair. It also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help keep fungal infections at bay. Olive oil was also found to be a natural conditioner.

Blend half a cup of honey and a quarter cup of olive oil and microwave for 30 seconds. Once the mixture has cooled, add a quarter cup of buttermilk and stir. Apply this mixture evenly all over your hair.

Leave the honey mask on for about 30 minutes. Wear a plastic cap to prevent dripping. Rinse out the mask with cool/lukewarm water and shampoo.

Apple cider vinegar and honey hair mask

Apple cider vinegar is a hair care remedy that many people swear by. There is a lot of anecdotal evidence of apple cider vinegar stimulating hair growth although there is little to no scientific research on it.

A study done in Palestine showed that the vinegar from apples acts as a hair cleanser and reduces split ends, hair loss, balding, dandruff, lice, scalp acne, and scabies. Combine the ingredients in a bowl until you get a smooth mixture. Apply the mask to your hair and scalp. Leave it in for 15 minutes. Wash off with cool or lukewarm water and shampoo.

Yogurt and honey hair mask

Yogurt may increase hair thickness and hair growth. It could also be used to treat hair damage and hair loss. Blend a cup of sour yogurt with half a cup of honey until you get a smooth mixture. Start applying the mixture to your hair from the roots to the tips.

Wear a shower cap to avoid a mess and wait for 15 minutes. Wash off with cool or lukewarm water and shampoo.
