Make your hair shine strawberry mask
Note! Usually for this mask people suggest to mix strawberries with mayonnaise, probably for better texture of the mask. But ass you know mayonnaise is made simply whipping together eggs and oil, but if you buy it at the store there are other ingredients to it as well so any time when you read a mask recipe with mayonnaise I suggest you to just add whipped egg and some olive oil.
Ingredients: 5 ripe strawberries, 2-3 tablespoons yogurt with nothing added to it, 1 tablespoon of olive and/or coconut oil, one egg. Process: Just blend everything together in one smooth mixture and apply it onto your hair starting with the scalp. Leave it in for at least 40 minutes, but if you have more time then 1 hour would be perfect. Wash it out with cool water.
Note! After washing out usually any hair mask the hair is pretty stiff and sticky so after you wash out the mask apply hair conditioner to your hair and leave it in for at least 5 minutes no matter what the label on the bottle says. Then wash your hair as usual with shampoo and then conditioner.
