Your hair goes through a lot in a day – from dry weather to chemicals and curling irons. With all these factors stressing your mane out, it’s no wonder they get dry and frizzy at some point. Sure you can always head to the salon for some hair treatment but wouldn’t more chemicals do more harm?

The answer, most probably, is yes. The good news is, you don’t have to go anywhere else to moisturize your locks. Check out these homemade DIY hair moisturizers made from 100% natural ingredients.

Shea Butter & Aloe Vera Gel


These two ingredients are notorious for their moisturizing properties and bringing them together only doubles the goodness! Some hair mask recipes make use of grapeseed oil and honey on top of shea butter and aloe vera gel but just whipping up these two is guaranteed to save your hair from drought.

Beer & Banana



Surprise! Beer truly is food – even for your hair. It turns out that this age-old booze is packed with B vitamins and proteins which nourish each hair strand. Maltose and sugar, on the other hand, give your hair that extra shine. Bananas smooth frizz and moisturize.

Honey, Olive Oil & Egg Yolk

??????????This combination is the perfect solution to dry and dull-looking hair. Egg yolk makes your hair softer and silkier. It is also known to add more volume to your locks and make them look even shinier. The great news is? Eggs aren’t that expensive so you don’t have to worry even if you have long hair.

Coconut Oil & Honey


Coconut oil is a popular hair moisturizer in tropical countries – due, in part, to their abundance. But, coconut naturally has high moisture-retaining properties. Combine coconut oil and honey. Lather onto hair and leave on for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse and style.



This is a natural hair conditioner which tames frizz and keeps hair moisturized even during winter. An added bonus is that yogurt is also a hair fall remedy. To use, just coat hair with yogurt and leave on for 20 minutes with a towel wrap-around. Rinse with shampoo and water after.
