Banana hair pack


1/2 banana
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of honey

Mash until creamy. Hair has to be dry to do this. Leave it on your hair and wash out after 20 minutes. After that, use a shampoo.

Milk based Hair Balm

It is simple as this: after you wash your hair, wash it with some milk and leave on for about 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. It helps bring back the softness and natural shine.

Sour Cream Hair Pack


2 teaspoons of sour-cream
1/2 teaspoon of wheat germ oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Mix it all together, apply to hair and rinse off after 10-15 minutes.

Olive oil for shiny hair



1 teaspoon of olive oil
1 egg

Mix the two and apply on hair. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and wash off using warm water, then shampoo.

Egg white for oily hair

1 egg white (more if your hair is thick or long).

Beat the egg and simply apply on dry hair. Leave it on until it is dry and crusty. Wash off with warm water and shampoo. Doing this a couple of times a week will help reduce the oiliness and remove the excess oil.


Hair pack for damaged hair


Juice from freshly squeezed lemon
2 egg yolks
1 egg white
1 tablespoon of honey.

Mix all the ingredients, apply on hair and let it rest for 10 minutes. After that, shampoo and rinse off.


For soft and silky hair


3 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of honey

Mix it all well, apply on hair. Wrap the hair with a towel or shower cap and let it rest for 15 minutes. Shampoo and rinse the hair.


Increase hair volume


1 tablespoon of vinegar
1 tablespoon of honey
1/2 cup of warm water
Spray bottle – pharmacy stores usually sell them for a couple of dollars, get a smaller one.


  • Mix the ingredients in a bottle and shake well
  • After you wash the hair with shampoo, let it dry a bit.
  • When it is damp, spray the mix you have prepared.
  • Massage the scalp so the liquid gets absorbed better
  • Don’t rinse the hair off, simply let it dry


For shiny and soft hair


1 tablespoon of coconut oil
3 tablespoons of sour cream


  • Mix the ingredients and apply them on hair.
  • Wrap a towel around it and let it rest for 30 minutes
  • Shampoo and rinse off well

I wandered across your blog when looking for hair care recipes. I can’t wait to try these! Great post!

Hope they work for you. 🙂 I haven’t tried them as yet, but Im looking forward to it when I can.

The Banana Pack sounds good. I love the smell of bananas. I should jot down this recipe. Could this be done on wet hair or only dry hair?

Im not sure I think it could work either way. let me know how it works for you if you try it. Oh I suggest you try baby food banana, that way you wont have any chunks left in your hair 😀

Natural hair care is the way to go! I have actually used the egg whites recipe. I used it as a mousse. It works great to hold curly hair! If you whip up the egg whites and put it in your hair while it is very wet, then scrunch it with a blow drier, it works wonders!
