Every hair type has different needs, so you have to use hair masks accordingly. In this post there is going to be something for every hair need. I have a similar post for
face masks(you can check it out here: https://www.aryasthaan.com/2020/04/face-masks-for-all-skin-types.html). So, lets get started

(1)Anti-hairfall mask
    Hairfall is a major concern of so many people. Hairfall can many reasons like medication, stress, underlying health concern, etc. It can even happen because of inadequate nutrition in diet. If you face hairfall, this mask is definitely worth a try.
Method: Take one onion, remove the skin and grind it into a paste without using any water. Using a strainer, separate the juice from the paste. Add one spoon of coconut oil to the onion juice. Apply this mixture to the scalp. Keep it on hair for an hour and then wash off using a mild shampoo followed by a conditioner. Do this once a week for a month and you will definitely notice a difference.
Onion contains large amounts of sulphur which helps in strengthening hair and even in the growth of new ones. If you do not notice a change after using this mask, do consult a doctor.

(2)Hair Growth mask
     If you are tried of your being the same length since as long as you remember and you want to grow it out, you should try this mask out. I have detailed post on tips for growing hair.(You can check it out here:https://www.aryasthaan.com/2020/04/tips-on-growing-hair.html)
Method: Add a spoon of castor oil and a spoon of aloe vera gel to a bowl. Mix this well until a white paste is formed. Apply this mixture all over the hair but mainly concentrate on the scalp. Keep it on for 1-2 hours and then wash it off using a mild shampoo followed by conditioner. You might have to shampoo twice as castor oil has a very thick consistency. Do this once a week for a month and you will definitely notice a difference.
Castor oil is rich in fatty acids and thus promote hair growth while aloe vera gel helps in soothing any kind of inflammation.

(3)Anti-Dandruff mask
      Dandruff can make you scratch your scalp like there is no tomorrow. Excessive scratching damages hair follicles and results in hairfall. This mask can undoubtedly get rid of the most stubborn dandruff in just two uses.
Method: Soak handful fenugreek seeds in water over night. Grind the soaked seeds into a smooth paste using half a cup curd.Apply this mixture to the scalp. Keep it on hair for an hour and then wash off using a mild shampoo followed by a conditioner.
Due to the antibacterial properties of fenugreek and lactic acid in curd this paste works as magic in fighting against dandruff.


(4)Protein mask
    If your hair is lifeless these days, its time for a protein treatment!
Method: Apply egg white of one egg to entire hair as well as scalp. Keep it on until the egg dries and wash off just using water.
The protein in egg makes your hair bouncy and shiny in just one use!

(5)Anti-frizz mask
     Don't we all hate frizz? Frizz is the number one reason for making the hair so unmanageable. Frizzy hair was the biggest enemy of my curls for the longest time but not anymore thanks to this  easy yet effective mask.(Check out budget friendly curly hair routine here:https://www.aryasthaan.com/2020/03/curly-hair-routine-on-budget.html)
Method: Add few drops of sweet almond oil and some aloe vera gel to the normal hair conditioner. Mix it well. Instead of using regular conditioner start using this.
Aloe vera gel soothes inflammation, almond oil adds shine and gets rid of the frizz as well.
