Did you know that 50% of male hair is gone before they can even notice that they are teetering towards baldness? Or that male pattern baldness sometimes starts before the age of 21 years? If you don't want to be counted amongst the 2/3rd of the men suffering from acute to severe case of hair loss, then we suggest you give this hair mask recipe (best part - made with avocados) a try, dear men.
Men's hair care routine is pretty simple - shampoo, generous dousing of hair gel and blast of hair dryer to keep it sleek and greasy.
However, if you want your precious hair strands to stay on your scalp, then start by going easy on your hair follicles and give it space to absorb oxygen better.
The main ingredients included in this herbal hair mask recipe for men are avocado and egg yolk. Avocado contains powerful antioxidants combined with vitamins A, D and E that stimulate hair growth.
Furthermore, it has amino acids that lock moisture in the hair cells, preventing frizzy hair. Egg yolk, on the other hand, is rich in sulphur and vitamin B12 content, which increases hair volume and promotes silky hair.
So, all the men out there, here is how you can make your hair soft and strong without resorting to chemicals. Take a look at this avocado hair mask recipe for men.
Cut an avocado in half and remove its seed. Put the avocado pieces into the blender and grind into a lump-free paste.
In a bowl, divide egg yolk from the white. Beat the egg yolk repeatedly, until you get a frothy consistency. Mix in the avocado and beat it into a smooth paste.
Add a tablespoon of honey to the mixture. Honey has antibacterial properties that will break down the yeast build-up on your scalp, keeping it healthy.
Add 5 drops of rosemary oil to the mixture (optional). Rosemary oil is rich in antioxidants that will stimulate blood flow, allowing the hair strands to absorb nutrients and oxygen better.
Comb your hair to remove unwanted tangles. Spritz some water onto your hair and then apply the mask. Before applying, make sure the avocado mask for hair loss is lump-free and as smooth as possible.
Starting from small section of your hair, work the mask throughout your scalp. Massage using your finger tips for 5 to 10 minutes, so the mask seeps in better.
Let the mask sit for 30 minutes and then rinse it with plain water thoroughly, until the mask is fully rinsed out, it is preferable to use a herbal shampoo.
Let your hair air-dry naturally. Avoid using hair gel and let your hair breathe.
- Avoid using hot water when rinsing out the mask, as it will partly cook the egg, making it quite difficult to remove it from your hair.
- To keep frizz at bay, use an old t-shirt to wipe your scalp and avoid using a blow dryer.
Within the first application of this homemade hair mask recipe for men, you will notice your mane become visibly soft, smooth and silky. Continue using it once a week for visible difference in hair fall rate.
