If your hair is dry and damaged
Who said avocado was just meant for toast? This super food, rich in antioxidants, proteins, amino acids and vitamins is just the nourishment your hair needs. Combine this with an egg, honey and olive oil and you have a winning hair mask for dry hair.
Eggs are known for their high content of protein as well as biotin, the hair-building vitamin. Olive oil and honey too are rich in antioxidants that nourish and strengthen the hair from within. A natural emollient, honey will help seal in the moisture, thus deep conditioning your hair.

Yoghurt, rich in Vitamin B5 and natural proteins, coupled with honey will give your hair a dose of intense moisture.
How-to: Whisk together one banana, 4 tablespoons of thick yoghurt and a spoonful of honey. Apply generously throughout the lengths of your hair, especially the tips. Seal in the mask with a shower cap and rinse off the next day for beautiful, frizz-free hair.
If your hair is thin
