DIY treatments: we often hear about them, but it's difficult to sort through everything that is offered to us... What to do for oily hair? Dry hair? Dandruff ? Don't panic: Madam President offers you no less than 7 DIY masks to take care of your hair according to its particularities!
DIY #1: moisturizing masks to take care of your hair
When should I turn to a hydrating mask?
If you have dry hair (it swells in contact with humidity, is often electric and rather dull), it lacks hydration! And yes, like the body, hair needs to drink… Drink a lot! And if drinking a liter and a half of water per day is essential to hydrate yourself deeply, masks are also welcome. The first of our DIY masks to take care of your hair will therefore be moisturizing!
Would you like a smoothie? ? That's a bit of what we're offering you today... But be careful, you don't have to drink it all (or, make two: one for you, one for your hair)!
What you need :
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 teaspoon of honey or agave syrup
- 1 glass of vegetable or animal milk
- 1 tablespoon of aloe vera
Mix everything until you obtain a smoothie texture, then apply to your hair from roots to ends. Leave on for 20 to 30 minutes, and rinse! Be careful, the golden rule of moisturizing masks: you must do them AFTER shampooing. In fact, washing reduces the moisturizing benefits of your treatment. Rinse thoroughly with clean, lukewarm water, and that's it. You can, however, apply a conditioner and, you know it but we repeat, a few drops of vegetable oil on the lengths will be perfect for sealing in hydration.
Do this treatment after each shampoo for +++ hydration! You can also replace the banana with a ripe avocado, guaranteed effect! And of course, like all the masks that we present to you, it is suitable for straight hair, curly hair, frizzy hair and frizzy hair... In short, for all hair types!
The benefits of a hydrating hair mask
Banana brings shine and repair to the hair. Honey and agave syrup have significant healing power and are very good moisturizing agents, as does aloe vera. Finally, milk provides softness and hydration to the hair. With this, we are sure that you will have hydrated and shiny hair!
And if, despite this, dryness persists, switch to the strong method: the moisturizing spray. Easy recipe:
- 70 ml of mineral water
- 10 drops of silk protein
- 20 ml of aloe vera
And we Pshhiit !

Less smoothie but just as effective, we have found a recipe for you (always tested and approved, of course) that will deeply nourish your hair. On the way !
What you need :

DIY #4: special growth masks to take care of your hair
In which cases should I turn to a mask for growth?
No mystery here: is your hair growing slowly (or at least, too slowly for your liking)? Do you aim to be the same length as Rapunzel? We have a great solution for you... But it doesn't smell very good?
We warn you, the smell will not be pleasant (on the other hand, the effectiveness is clearly there)! Plan for some quiet time: it won't be time to go shopping!
What you need :
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 30 cl of oily macerate of your Resolution N°2 tea in arugula vegetable oil
Crush the garlic cloves and add them to your macerate... Which you can leave to macerate for two to three days for more effect (and yes, a garlic macerate in a macerate)! Then, you can filter the mixture and apply this oil to your hair. Don't hesitate to wrap it in a towel to avoid breathing in the smell too much! Then leave it on for 2 hours, up to overnight if possible, then wash. To neutralize the odor that may persist, do not hesitate to do your last rinse with lemon or caffeinated water: neither seen nor known! Apply once every two weeks for beautiful growth, whether your hair is straight, curly, frizzy or afro!
And yes, grandmothers' recipes are very effective, but not always fragrant... If you prefer to smell good, you can turn to the delicious Hair boost , our gummies whose action targets growth!
The benefits of a mask to stimulate hair growth
The composition of garlic makes it a perfect strengthening agent for hair, which will therefore grow more quickly. Arugula vegetable oil is THE essential for growth... And of course, I am no longer selling you the merits of our Resolution No. 2 in maceration? Small note all the same! Be careful, however: hair grows on average 1.5 cm per month, and miracles do not exist! The treatments will stimulate growth but will never make you gain 5 cm per month. But to achieve the length of your dreams more quickly, you can turn to Resolution No. 4, Elixir Booster , which stimulates hair growth and regrowth!

DIY #6: masks to take care of oily hair
Why do I have oily hair?
Oily hair is often a sign... of a lack of nutrition! And yes ! Stop wanting to dry out your scalp, on the contrary: it will produce more and more sebum to try to regulate the dryness you impose on it. Watchword ? Candy. No stripping products, no sudden stopping of nourishing treatments. You need to adapt your routine. And for that, we have what you need: a DIY anti-dandruff mask to take care of your hair.
For this mask, we aim to regulate sebum production and absorb excess! You'll need :
- 6 tablespoons of green clay
- 5 tablespoons of lemon water
- 4 drops of grapefruit essential oil (optional, not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women)
Mix everything and apply to the roots. Leave on for at least 30 minutes, without letting the clay dry (do not hesitate to moisten it regularly with a spray, because dry clay will dry out your skin instead of repairing it). Then rinse, and enjoy your healthy scalp. You can apply this treatment once a week to see oily hair become normal hair... A real joy! Please note, no washing necessary after this treatment, let your scalp make the most of its benefits.
The benefits of a hair mask to regulate sebum production
Green clay is the essential anti-oily hair: very absorbent, it fights against excess sebum and purifies the scalp and hair fiber. It is also a very good washing powder, which makes washing unnecessary after this treatment. Lemon, for its part, has excellent cleansing and soothing properties, as does grapefruit essential oil. The ultimate combo to find healthy hair in no time!
