DIY Hair Masks with Yogurt for Hair Damage

Posted by Shavon Walker on

Hair damage is not something you should disregard. It can hamper self-confidence and if the problem is with nutrition, it’s crucial to take care of it immediately.

Hair masks can help in naturally and safely restoring damaged hair. Yogurt as a main hair mask ingredient can have many benefits on the scalp and hair. This natural product also has many other benefits in the body. It has potent anti-fungal and anti-infective properties that protect against various infections. It also has calming and soothing effects that can help in reducing many inflammatory conditions. It also has rich nutrient profile that can nourish various organs, including the scalp and hair. 

Causes of hair damage

Many factors contribute to hair damage. Most of these are exposure to harmful elements and too little nutrition, such as:

  1. Too little moisture

 It may be from poor hydration (not drinking enough water) or using harsh chemicals on hair that strip off moisture. Over-washing can also remove the protective oils from the hair strands. Without the natural oils, moisture in the hair strands dissipates more quickly. The hair strands become dry, brittle and easily damaged if it lacks moisture. 

 

  1. Too much heat

This may be in the form of using heat styling equipment like curling iron and hair straighteners. Blow-dryers on hot settings also apply too much heat that can damage the hair. Blow-dryers on high setting cause greater damage if the hair is still dripping wet right before it is blow-dried.

Damaging heat can also come from direct exposure to sunlight. It may also come from spending too much time near other heat sources, such as working with a kiln for long hours.

 

  1. Chemical exposure

Harsh chemicals can come from the hair products used such as shampoos and dyes. Dyeing entails the use of very harsh chemicals that strip the original color off from hair. Ammonia in most shampoos are also very damaging to the hair.

 

  1. No deep conditioning

Hair growth and strength depends on the health of the hair follicles. Deep conditioning is needed regularly to nourish and strengthen the hair follicles. Deep conditioning can be done at least once a week or so. Skipping this can cause hair follicles to become weaker.

 

  1. Cotton pillowcases

Cotton pillowcases can rub the hair strands and remove the protective oils. The rubbing itself can damage the strands, much like rubbing a coarse file over fine thread. This can lead to fraying and weakening of the strands.

 

  1. Towel drying

Similarly to using cotton pillowcases, towel drying rubs the hair strands and damages them.

 

  1. Unbalanced diet

Proper nutrition is very important. No matter how much care is given to the hair strands, it won’t do much good if the body is not properly nourished. Eat a balanced diet and drink plenty of water every day to strengthen the hair against damage. 

 

Potential solutions for hair damage

There are many things that can be done to protect the hair from getting damaged and to help restore its health.

  1. Use gentle hair products

Avoid ammonia and similar harsh chemicals. Avoid hair dyes or dyeing the hair too often. Allow for the hair and scalp to breathe in between treatments.

Dirt, dust, grime and dead cells should be removed from the hair to allow it to breathe. Natural shampoo is one of the best products to use for cleaning the hair.

 

  1. Get regular trimming

Damaged hair can be revived by getting it regularly trimmed. This will remove the damaged portions and allow your hair to recover faster.

 

  1. Follow a healthy hair regimen

This is the time to give more attention to the health of your hair. Use gentle hair products and shampoos. If possible, avoid or reduce treatments while the hair strands are recovering from damage. Reduce the frequency of dyes and heat styling.

Deep condition the hair to bring back lost nutrients to the hair follicles. Remove dead cells and dirt from hair to allow it to breathe.

At this point, hair masks can do a lot of help in restoring damaged hair. Hair masks provide nourishment directly to the hair strands to strengthen them.

This hair care regimen will only be effective if the products used are gentle. Going natural and creating the hair treatment products yourself can help in avoiding many harsh chemicals that worsen hair damage.

 

The power of yogurt for hair and scalp

Yogurt is a very powerful ingredient that safely, effectively and gently nourishes the scalp and hair. This has many benefits for scalp and hair, such as:

  1. Dandruff buster

Yogurt has a powerful anti-fungal property that can effectively treat dandruff. It is powerful against dandruff yet gentle enough on the scalp and hair. As a bonus, yogurt has an anti-inflammatory, soothing effect on the scalp. This can relieve itching and irritation of dandruff-affected scalp.

 

  1. Frizz tamer

Many people battle with frizzy hair, especially in the summer. The scalp is dry and irritated, hair going every which way. Yogurt’s soothing and cooling effect helps to relieve the dryness. It can calm and soften frizzy hair with its moisturizing effect, too.

 

  1. Nourishes hair

Yogurt is rich in nutrients that can bring back vitality to hair and scalp. It has vitamin B12 for boosting hair growth. Niacin protects against premature hair aging and appearance of gray hair. Biotin restores health to damaged hair. Calcium gives hair volume, density and strength. Choline improves blood flow to hair follicles for healthier hair growth. Iodine strengthens the hair follicles for healthy growth and stronger hair shaft.

 

  1. Hair hydrating

Yogurt contains lactic acid. This helps to hydrate the hair strands. This nutrient also helps to wash away dead skin cells to cleanse the hair better.
