As much as we love the cool breeze and rain during the monsoon, there is no denying the fact that our hair isn't a big fan of this season. The dull, frizzy mess that sits on our heads indicates why monsoon isn’t the best season for our tresses. But why fear when we are here?
We have listed five amazing hair masks that you can try this monsoon season to keep your hair strong and healthy. Check them out!
- 01. Banana and yoghurt hair mask for healthy hair
- 02. Aloe vera and hibiscus hair mask for soft, shiny hair
- 03. Avocado and banana mask hair mask for hair fall
- 04. Coconut and egg hair mask for weak, brittle hair
- 05. Lemon juice, honey and methi hair mask for dandruff
01. Banana and yoghurt hair mask for healthy hair
For this mask, you’d need one ripe banana, two tablespoons of yoghurt and one tablespoon coconut oil. The star of this mask is the banana. This good ol’ fruit is great for your hair as it contains silica that helps make your hair stronger while also relieving your dry, flaky scalp by nourishing it. The protein in yoghurt makes your hair healthy. Try this at least once or twice a week for healthy, happy hair during monsoon.
Here’s how to make a DIY banana and yoghurt hair mask:
Step 1: Mash the ripe banana and add yoghurt and oil to it.
Step 2: Mix the ingredients to make a paste.
Step 3: Apply the smooth mask on your scalp and hair and let it sit for half an hour.
Step 4: After that, shampoo your hair with cool water and you are done.
02. Aloe vera and hibiscus hair mask for soft, shiny hair
Gather one tablespoon aloe vera gel, two tablespoons yoghurt and two hibiscus flowers for this hair mask. We all know that aloe vera is excellent for our hair. The vitamins A, C, and E in this plant help clear out the dirt and excess sebum in your hair and cleanse your scalp properly. The pretty hibiscus flower helps strengthen and repair your hair, while yoghurt works towards moisturising your hair strands. This mask will help make your hair more manageable, soft and shiny.
Here’s how to make a DIY aloe vera and hibiscus hair mask:
Step 1: Mix and grind the aloe vera gel and hibiscus flowers together.
Step 2: Now, add yoghurt to this mix and make a paste.
Step 3: Apply the hair mask to your scalp and hair and let it sit for 20-25 minutes.
Step 4: Rinse off with shampoo.
03. Avocado and banana mask hair mask for hair fall
Collect one ripe avocado and banana, one tablespoon of olive oil, and one wheat germ oil for this hair mask. While the banana strengthens your hair, the avocado helps moisturise and thicken it. The presence of nutrients like biotin, potassium and magnesium in avocado make your hair smoother and prevents hair fall. Try this mask twice a week to prevent hair fall during monsoon.
Here’s how to make a DIY avocado and banana hair mask:
Step 1: Mash the ripe avocado and banana together.
Step 2: Add one tablespoon of olive oil and wheat germ oil to the mix and make a smooth paste.
Step 3: Massage this paste all over your hair and let it sit for 30 minutes.
Step 4: Shampoo your hair with cool water.
04. Coconut and egg hair mask for weak, brittle hair
You’d need one medium egg and one tablespoon of honey and coconut each. Egg for hair is not just an old wives’ tale for healthy hair; it works wonders for your hair. Enriched with vitamins and minerals like vitamins A and E, biotin, zinc, iron and folate, eggs work to make your hair strong and voluminous. The coconut oil and honey nourish your hair to repair the season-inflicted damages to your hair.
Here’s how to make a DIY coconut and egg hair mask:
Step 1: Mix together the egg, honey and coconut oil.
Step 2: Make a smooth paste of these ingredients.
Step 3: Apply and massage to your hair and scalp and leave it for one hour.
Step 4: Shampoo your hair as usual with cold water.
05. Lemon juice, honey and methi hair mask for dandruff
For this hair pack, you need one tablespoon lemon juice, one tablespoon honey and about 50 grams of fenugreek seeds, aka methi powder. Lemon juice is a natural way to get rid of dandruff, which is pretty common in monsoon. Honey acts as a strengthening agent for your hair, while the methi powder moisturises your hair and treats split ends naturally. Use this mask once or twice a week to make your hair monsoon-proof!
Here’s how to make a DIY lemon juice, honey and methi hair mask:

Step 2: Apply and massage it on your scalp and hair.
Step 3: Leave it on your hair for half an hour.
Step 4: Clean it off with shampoo, and you’re good to go!
