Hair and Scalp Mask

Hair and Scalp Mask

What is a hair mask? 

You’ve probably heard of, or perhaps tried, a face mask. Just as a face mask works to nourish and hydrate your skin, a hair mask works in a similar way to boost the condition and health of your hair.

Hair masks may also be referred to as deep conditioning treatments or intensive hair conditioners.

What makes them different to instant conditioners is that the ingredients are usually more concentrated, and the mask is left on your hair for longer — anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour.

There are many benefits to using a hair mask, and the advantages vary depending on the ingredients and your hair type. Generally speaking, the benefits of using a hair mask include:

  • shinier, softer hair
  • added moisture
  • reduced hair breakage and damage
  • less frizz
  • a healthier scalp
  • stronger hair
  • less environmental and product damage


Our Ingredients:

Rhassoul Clay, Rice Powder, Shikakai, Bringraj, Amla, Ginseng, Ginko, Gotu Kola, Kola Nut, Fenugreek, Nettle Leaves, Hibiscus, Holy Basil, Neem, Horsetail, Guava Fruit, Aloe Ferox, Rosemary, Tea Tree

Why does this work?

The combination of herbs literally translates into “fruit of hair”, and is packed with vitamins A, C, D, E and K, along with many essential phytonutrients. These nourish the follicles, boost hair growth and strengthen strands from root to tip. It also has a very low pH, which helps eliminate dandruff and dryness, leaving hair glossier with every use.

The high vitamin C content and essential fatty acids help reduce hair fall, strengthen the strands and add luster. Plus, it’s also antimicrobial and antioxidant – this goes a long way in combatting dandruff and other scalp problems.

Yogurt contains protein and zinc, which are perfect for resetting and balancing the scalp’s eco system to keep it healthy and free from dandruff, boils or itchiness. This is essential to keep the follicles working at optimum capacity, which in turn is essential for strong strands and maximum growth. Yogurt also contains lactic acid to stimulate circulation, along with hefty doses of natural conditioners that make it a potent benefactor for damaged hair.


Take 1 or 2 Teaspoons depending on the thickness of your hair and mix some boiling water enough to make a paste.  Let it sit overnight.  Then add all the other ingredients with any of the following formulas that fits your needs.  Mix well and adjust liquid to bring to a smooth paste.  Apply to hair and leave for 1 hour.  Shampoo and condition only on the ends.  Not the scalp.

Recommended Use:

Two to 3 times a month!


  • Bananas. If you want to reduce frizz, bananas are a good ingredient to include in a hair mask. The silica in bananas may also help make your hair softer and shinier. Bananas also have antimicrobial properties. This may help reduce dryness and dandruff.
  • Eggs. The nutrients in egg yolks, includes vitamins A and E, biotin, and folate, may help promote hair growth, while the protein in egg whites may help strengthen your hair.
  • Avocado oil. The minerals in avocado oil, such as folic acid, iron, and magnesium, may help seal the hair cuticle. This can help make your hair more resistant to damage and breakage.
  • Honey. Honey is considered a humectant, which means it can help your hair pull in and retain more moisture. It can also stimulate the skin, which may help promote stronger hair follicles.
  • Coconut oil. Due to its low molecular weight, it can penetrate the hair shaft for deep conditioning. This can help reduce dryness and frizz and is also to reduce protein loss when used on the hair.
  • Olive oil. Want intense moisture? Olive oil contains squalene, which is produced naturally by the body but declines as we age. Squalene is essential for moisturized hair and skin.
  • Aloe Vera. If you want to calm and soothe your scalp, consider a hair mask with Aloe Vera, which has anti-inflammatory properties. It also contains vitamins C, E, and B-12, folic acid, and choline, which may help strengthen and nourish your hair.
