DIY hair masks are a highly effective way to provide your hair with tons of health benefits in less than 20 minutes. For this mask, I have selected natural ingredients that work amazingly to boost healthy hair growth. Here are some of the benefits that you can expect:
Hibiscus powder is a fantastic treatment for hair – it increases shine, creates volume, promotes hair growth, and helps with scalp disorders.
Amla oil reduces premature pigment loss from hair, stimulates hair growth and helps treat dry, itchy scalp and dandruff.
Sapote oil is a well-known hair revitalizer, helps strengthen and promote healthy hair growth from the roots.
Ginseng extract strengthens hair follicles and helps prevent hair loss. It also stimulates the scalp, encouraging hair growth.
Nota Bene: Caution to those that have lighter hair as Hibiscus may stain. You can use Shikakai powder instead.
Ingredients & Instructions:
- 1.5 tbsp organic Hibiscus powder (find it here: US / UK)
- 0.5 tbsp organic Amla oil (find it here: US / UK)
- 0.5 tbsp Sapote oil (find it here: US)
- 0.5 tsp Ginseng extract (find it here: US / UK)

Mix Hibiscus powder with water, then add rest of the ingredients. Apply the mask on the roots of dry hair and leave on for about 15-20 minutes. To optimize the mask’s effects, you can cover your head with a hot towel. Follow with your favorite shampoo.
Regularly using this homemade hair mask will help get thick, long, and lustrous hair!
