In the world of beauty and wellness, DIY hair masks are all the rage. There are literally hundreds of masks that you can make at home with ingredients that you might already have in your kitchen
A hair sculpting mask is a type of mask that is meant to be used on your hair to give it a boost of volume and texture. It will also protect your hair from heat styling and other damage.
Why These Ingredients?
There are many different versions of this mask, but they all have one thing in common - they use ingredients that are meant to nourish your scalp and promote healthy hair growth. The most popular ingredients include egg yolk, olive oil, and honey.
Honey is a food that has been used since the earliest civilizations. They were favored for its therapeutic components and its use as a binder in different types of preparations. The Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans all kept honey as part of their medical treatments. Some studies have shown that when mixed with other ingredients-specifically olive oil and water, honey makes a great conditioner and hair luster. Natural honey can help you get this great effect, but other types of honey can work too. Even honey that's been treated.
Much like honey, olive oil has a history of various uses. For hair, olive oil acts as a great conditioner that is needed to decrease friction, detangle the hair, and make it look sleeker. It works by neutralizing the electrical charge on the hair and also by making it easier for a comb to slide through. Olive oil is great for dry hair as it helps provide some added moisture.
A new hypothesis suggests that the egg may be a powerful hair-growth booster. The water-soluble peptides found in the yolk of a chicken egg have been known to stimulate VEGF production and human hair follicle dermal cells. This is a great discovery for those who suffer from hair thinning or bald spots, as eggs are naturally rich in all of the key nutrients needed for healthy hair growth.
