Lately, days remained the same, and the sportswear became our endorsed garment. The queen of fashion, Anna Wintour, established to us that the tracksuit is officially allowed, by posting a photo of herself wearing a tracksuit. But despite her informal clothes, Mrs. Wintour had a flawless hairstyle. To her, haircare is something that is not neglected in a firm embrace of a home. But as the hair salons will be closed for a few more weeks, some of us will finally see our natural hair color again, and some of us may even prefer it. But by the time we are deciding on our hair color, we have prepared some essential hair care recipes, and favorably, you will find the ingredients for them in your fridges.

Yoyo silk
Mix full-fat yogurt, one egg, and a teaspoon of honey. Yogurt, especially if it’s cold, is very soothing on the skin. If you’re using yogurt with a ton of culture, it can also be extremely pH balancing. Beyond bonding the mixture together, a whole egg will provide proteins and honey has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. After mixing all ingredients in a bowl, apply the paste to the hair and roots for 30 minutes to reveal rejuvenated lengths.

Strawberry fields forever
You will need strawberries, coconut oil, and agave
In addition to smelling great, this hair mask is also excellent at achieving overall hair health. While coconut oil and agave help keep the hair soft, smooth, and moisturized, strawberries are full of vitamin C, which help stimulate the creation of collagen. Together, these ingredients can help eliminate excess oil and grease, leaving your hair with a sleek, glossy finish.

Cinnamon smell
Try a cinnamon-based mask; the anti-microbial spice is known to stimulate blood circulation and promote hair growth and strength.
Use equal parts of cinnamon and coconut oil and blend them well. Apply the mask onto your roots and part, and massage into your scalp. Let it sit for 30 to 45 minutes before rinse. Aim to do this mask at least once a week.

Honey, apple cider vinegar, and coconut oil
What about the dullness? Keeping hair moisturized and healthy always makes your hair look better. When strands start to lose their luster, use an apple cider vinegar mask to enhance glossiness.
Use equal parts, raw organic honey, with apple cider vinegar and coconut oil. Blend them and let it sit for 25 - 35 minutes before rinse.

Let us know which hair mask you love most, and remember, whatever you wear, don't forget to take care of your hair.
