Did you know that a simple homemade hair mask made with yeast could do miracles even with the most unkempt hair?
The results of this hair mask are visible on the first try, but more importantly permanent. The mask is compatible with all hair types, and is irreplaceable when it comes to fighting hair loss and stimulating hair growth.
What is more, the yeast homemade hair mask can help you get rid of dandruff as well. Using yeast based hair masks can get you amazing results, however the treatment must be systematic, and not just from time to time.
If your goal is treating damaged hair and hair loss, a yeast based homemade hair mask should be used 2 times a week for 6-8 weeks. Repeat after 3 months if needed.
Unfortunately, this mask is not a cure for alopecia (baldness). What it does is actually increasing your hair quality and speeding up its growth.
In addition, it can help with stress, sickness, chemotherapy and hormonal imbalance related hair loss. It can also help you recover from the great “fall” hair loss.
You can change the recipe for this homemade hair mask by adding olive or castor oil, yogurt or aloe juice.
The main ingredient should always remain yeast. You may also use egg yolks to give your hair extra shine.
Yeast based hair treatments can give amazing long term results, but you should stick with it and keep to the schedule we described before.
Homemade Hair Mask Recipe
- Dissolve one spoonful of honey in one tablespoon of warm milk. Add 20 g of fresh yeast (or dried yeast – one small 7 gr. bag is equal to 40 gr. of fresh yeast).
- Leave it in a warm place to grow and ferment for 15-20 minutes.
- Put the resulting mixture on clean, damp hair from the roots to the tips. It can also be used on unwashed hair.
- Wrap in a nylon bag and a warm towel. Masks like this one need to stay warm to create the optimal conditions for the growth of a yeast colony. As the yeast grows, so does the amount of protein, vitamin and mineral that penetrates the follicle.
- If the mix leaks out of the wrap, try using less milk next time.
- Leave in for at least an hour, sometimes 2-3 hours. The longer it stays in the better.
- Wash hair with shampoo if it was previously unwashed, otherwise rinse out with warm water and conditioner.
Don’t worry about the smell that you notice while wearing the mask, as it will go away once the hair is washed and dried.
Side note: Some use this mask without milk – they pour a spoonful of honey over the yeast and nothing more.
Once it grows, add a spoonful of castor or olive oil (or you can leave the oil out). The rest is the same.
