    Hair Masks”
    To intensify any of these DIY Hair treatments, after applying conditioner, wrap your hair in Saran Wrap, wring out a towel soaked in warm water, and wrap it around the plastic wrap.

    Here is one sweet smelling DIY hair mask for moisture deprived summer locks! Gil Gamlieli recommended this homemade conditioner for dry hair and scalp. The almond oil is a great lubricant. The bananas are full of potassium; the honey has vitamins A, B and C; and the rose petals . . . sweet ecstasy!
