3 DIY Hair Masks to Hydrate Your Natural Hair This Summer

In the scorching heat of summer, our Afros often require extra care and attention. The combination of sun exposure, humidity, and environmental factors can lead to dryness, frizz, and hair damage. Moreover, using commercial hair products that contain harsh chemicals can damage our kinks and curls.

No need to worry! Using simple natural ingredients in your kitchen, you can create effective homemade hair masks that nourish, repair, and hydrate your precious locks. I will share 3 DIY natural hair mask recipes custom-made for summer care.

1.  Egg-Yogurt Hair Mask

The egg yogurt hair pack is a great nourishing blend that combines the richness of eggs and the conditioning properties of yogurt. This natural hair treatment offers many benefits, including strengthening the hair, proper growth, and adding shine to your hair. It can even keep your hair fresh even under the hot sun.


  • 1-2 tablespoons of fresh yogurt
  • One fresh egg

How To Make and Use Hair Mask

  • Make a smooth paste by mixing fresh yogurt and egg. I suggest you use the white part of the egg only if your hair is oily, but if your hair is dry, beat the whole egg.
  • Now, thoroughly use the mixture on your hair and leave it for at least 20 – 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, wash your head with lukewarm to cold water. (Cooler temperatures help seal the hair cuticles, resulting in smoother and shinier locks).
  • You can apply this hair mask twice a week for better results during the summertime but it really depends on your hair’s needs individually. Fill in this quiz if you need some guidance!

2.  Avocado-Coconut Milk Hair Mask

While we’re on the topic of coconuts, have you heard of the beautiful story of Sina and the Eel?

This avocado coconut milk hair mask offers a natural and effective way to nourish, refresh, and enhance the health of your hair. With the power of avocado and coconut milk, you can provide your hair with essential nutrients, such as; Vitamin B, Vitamin E and Vitamin C.

Together, they form a potent blend that can help improve hair texture, repair damage, and add shine.

  • Then, use the hair mask generously and apply it to hair starting from the roots and working your way to the end.
  • After applying the mask, wait 20 to 30 minutes and finally wash your hair.
