Bad hair day with dry hair frizzing all around your head? Sounds like the perfect moment to share the recipe for my favorite homemade hair mask for dry hair with you! It really brings awesome results!
During winter time my hair tends to be especially dry. Inside the heated air dries out skin and hair, outside I am wearing cute caps and hats. Cute for me – but not for my curls! They get frizzy, dry and so dull!
In those winter cases, both my homemade conditioner with MSM and my Cassia hair treatment are not enough anymore. Luckily, my hair mask recipe for dry hair is really easy to do. It only needs 3 ingredients, is mixed in 1 minute and has never failed to give me soft and super shiny hair!

How to make the homemade hair mask for dry hair
As I said above, you will only need three ingredients:
- 1 part honey (ideally liquid already, otherwise warm it up a little bit in a double boiler)
- 1 part Aloe Vera gel (Fresh is awesome, but the drugstore version works just as well. Just make sure it’s pure Aloe Vera, like this one*.)
- 2 parts of your favorite conditioner (I use a silicone-free moisturizing conditioner, but also here any conditioner should do. An often recommended natural brand is Shea Moisture. You can find some of their conditioners here*.)
Just mix all of these ingredients together. You should get a creamy consistency. If you are feeling fancy, add up to a tablespoon of your favorite oil!

How to use the homemade hair mask for dry hair
Conveniently, it is not only a hair mask for dry hair, but you can also use it directly on dry hair. (Ha, see what I did there?) I usually apply it 1 – 2 hours before I wanted to wash my hair anyway. This way it has some time to soak in. Even after half an hour, you will already see a result though!
First I massage the mask thoroughly into my hair. Then I wrap a warm towel around it and put an old winter hat on top.
This will keep the mixture warm, which increases the effects of the mask. It also prevents the honey from getting hard again in case you did not use a liquid variant. And that is pretty much it already!
Let me know in the comments if you tried it and how it worked for you! (I am pretty sure you will love it.) And also pin this for later!
