Stressed about the way your hair looks - dull and lifeless? Dry hair can become a major problem if proper care is not taken. It's not just the dryness that one needs to deal with. With the lack of haircare rituals and thorough nourishing, dry hair could lead to split ends, frizz and breakage, and even hair fall. While there are many commercially available products that promise to be the perfect solution, turning to natural ingredients is recommended by most beauty experts.
There are many incredible kitchen ingredients that can bring life to brittle hair by providing it with essential nutrients, deep nourishing the follicles and improving the hair's elasticity. If you are wondering how to get started, we list down three hair masks that are commonly used to tackle dry hair:
Honey and Banana
This is one of the most effective remedies to tackle dry hair naturally. Honey and banana, both work wonders in moisturising the hair from the roots and keep it soft. Take a ripe banana and mash it in a bowl. Add half a cup of milk and two tablespoons honey. Apply it on your hair, from the roots to the tip, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Wash thoroughly with mild shampoo and see an instant change.

Most people maybe repelled by the smell of egg yolks, but there's no denying the fact that it helps a great deal in nourishing dry hair. As such it has been commonly used in beauty remedies for ages.
