Fall Beauty Prep: 3 Moisturizing Hair Treatments

UPDATE: This post originally ran on September 6th but now that fall is officially underway, we need these moisturizing hair masks more than ever!As the weather transitions from summer to fall, so does our wardrobe, our home décor, and our beauty routine. The disappearance of humidity does wonders for frizzy hair, but cooler, dryer weather also has a tendency to dry out our locks. To reverse the drying effects of fall weather on hair, there are tons of natural treatments you can make for yourself. Here are three of my current favorites.

Banana & Almond Oil Hair Mask

The banana softens your hair and protects its natural elasticity, while the almond oil keeps the moisture locked in. You’re left with smooth, soft hair that’s protected from the drying effects of dry, cool weather.

1 medium banana
1 tsp almond oil

Mash up your banana, add in the almond oil, and mix well. Massage into your hair, concentrating on your ends, and let sit for about 30 minutes. Wash and condition your hair as usual.

Peppermint & Avocado Hair Mask

The avocado, honey, and olive oil lock moisture into your hair, while the peppermint tea invigorates the scalp, leaving you with luscious, moisturized locks and a fresh, clean feeling.

1 avocado
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp loose peppermint tea

Mash up your avocado, add in the honey, olive oil, and tea, and mix well. Massage into your hair, concentrating on your ends, and let sit for about 30 minutes. Wash and condition your hair as usual.

Brown Sugar & Olive Oil Scalp Scrub

This scrub is really more about cleansing your scalp after a long summer spent under the sun. The brown sugar will act as an exfoliator, removing any sweat and sebum buildup that may have occurred over the past few months. The olive oil puts moisture back into the hair, prepping it for the cool, dry months ahead.

2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp olive oil

Combine the sugar and oil, and mix until you have an even consistency. Part your hair into multiple sections and gently massage the scrub into your scalp using small circular motions. Rinse your hair to remove the scrub, then wash and condition your hair as usual.

  1. okay, so this is a little off the topic, but since we are talking about hair i was wondering if anybody in your office does/has tried the ‘no poo’ method? i really wanna try it but am worried about it damaging my already very short hair (about chin length). posting recipes they use or watching their transition from beginning to end would be awesome and super helpful!

  2. I am curious… do you think these would be safe for color treated hair? A part of my hair is deep purple and I don’t want to strip out any more color than normally would wash out in the shower? I am guessing it would be fine since these are all naturally moisturizing vs a box product. Has anyone in the office tried DIY all natural conditioners for color treated hair? Thanks!


  3. Liz – I don’t know for sure, but I think that these would all be safe for you. The only one I would be a little cautious about would be the brown sugar scrub on the off-chance that the exfoliation could possibly affect your color. I will look into beauty recipes for color-treated hair for future blog posts! :)

  4. Liz – I have colored hair too, and have been told to stay away from sea salt of all kinds. A lot of products have sea salt in them and it strips color immediately! I think all the ingredients in this post are safe, but I’m not sure. Another ingredient to avoid is sulfate. This is usually the first or second item on ingredient lists in hair products. :)

  5. Liz – I think no-poo works depending on your hair/skin type. Tons of people swear by it, but the people who have the hardest time with it (I’m in this category) are people with oily skin and fine/thin hair. I tried no-poo for 3 months and my sebum production never changed. I finally broke down and started using shampoo again when I saw little to no results. I will say this though, my hair was in amazing condition as far as individual strands go. Zero split ends and a lot less breakage in general. Good luck to you!

  6. Hello my name is Cecilia from USA, My life is back!!! After 8 years of marriage, my husband left me and left me with our three kids. I felt like my life was about to end, and was falling apart. I contacted you and after I explained you my problem. In just 3 days, my husband came back to us and show me and my kids much love and apologize for all the pain he have bring to the family. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before you are the best spell caster Dr ZAZA i really appreciate the love spell you castes for me to get the man i ever loved back to my life i will keep sharing more testimonies to people about your good work Thank you once again at (zazalovespell@gmail.com). in case you are in any problem you can contact this man for help he is always there in his temple to help you solve your problem Contact Email is zazalovespell@gmail.com

  7. Hii!! I tried the banana hair mask and it was very hydrating, but the banana chunks got stuck in my hair and I couldnt get them out :/ If someone else tries the banana one, i reccomend mashing the banana for a really long tume to get all the chunjs out of the mask before you use it

  8. I have fine hair, but tons of it. After this summer, the heat and sun left my scalp feeling super oily and itchy, something that’s not natural for me. After trying the scrub, it’s very gentle for those with a gentle scalp. But I can pull and yank my hair for days and am fine, so I was able to dig deep. Because it’s sugar, it rinses out easily but sticks in your hair while you’re working on it. This is definitely something I’ll be using again soon.

  9. Thanks for sharing these! Avocados have been one of my go to foods recently, but the issue I run into is that they sometimes get too ripe too quickly—it’s great that you can still find ways to use them so as not to waste money!

  10. My name is john, i leave in dublin , my girlfriend and i have
    been together
    for over 6 years now, in the last few weeks i have been
    having problems
    with her, I do love this woman a lot and do want to get
    married to her but
    at times i did feel a little confused about this and has
    wondered if she
    has been true to the relationship…until i found king son,
    who told me
    that she was not being true with me..I did later find out
    that she has been
    seeing her ex boyfriend I was devastated and did not
    know what to do,
    although I still loved her and could not see myself with
    anyone else, I did
    not want to lose her and king son assured me that they
    could help me with
    this problem, he told me about a spell caster DR.mercy i
    decided to give
    it a trier so I contacted mercylovespell@gmail.com once
    again to let
    him know that I did want to get help with this. With the
    powers that they
    do have my girlfriend and I did work a lot of things out and
    she has came
    back to me and we are now back together and engaged I
    did get over the fact
    that she has cheated on me but sometimes we do need to
    forget the past and
    move on to a better future and without king son’ help I
    don’t think it
    would have ever worked out.he is truly an Angel sent from
    up above!
