DIY Hair Masques Beauty Hair Hair with Emylea
Hey guys, Emylea here! I’m super excited to share two of my favourite at home ‘do it yourself’ hair masques! As a professional hairstylist, I’ve tried so many different types of masques and we all know that sometimes we can’t find the time to make it into a store to stock up. This is where some of your every day kitchen pantry ingredients can come into play…coconut oil, we all have a tub of this nowadays and this can be a key ingredient in any hair mask! Coconut oil is SUPER hydrating and a simple overnight coconut masque is something I try to do every couple of weeks to treat my hair to some TLC.

I’ve written up the ingredients for my 2 go-to hair masques below, try them out with a girlfriend while watching the Bachelorette or like Roxanne you can have a mommy-daughter spa day since these masques are 110% safe for the little ones too! I actually made these masques at her house and we let Ella help us put them together and we made smoothies with the extra banana & avocado, super fun for every one while giving our hair a yummy treat…I mean don’t those ingredients make you want to whip up a smoothie too!?! As for the amount of ingredients in each masque that is totally dependant on your hair and how many people are using it, for the 2 of us with really long hair and a toddler we used the amounts listed below.

Coco Bananas

2 Bananas

1 Ripe Avocado

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

Mash & Mix



1 Egg

1 Cup Coconut Cream

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil


And if you are not up for making your own masques – (I mean we all know there is never enough time in a day anymore) – I’ve linked to 5 of our favourite hair masques below that you can find at Sephora!

  1. Gloss Moderne – High Gloss Masque: This masque smells delicious, it’s hypoallergenic AND cruelty-free! It has a higher price point but well worth it!
  2. Amika – Nourishing Mask: As you all know from my last product review, I am a big fan of the Vegan Amika line especially this hair masque. This product is cruelty-free, free of artificial colour and sodium chloride + it’s safe for colour treated hair!
  3. Drybar – Bay Breeze Hydrating Shots: These single-use shots penetrate the hair to deliver a dose of professional-strength moisture. The treatment rehydrates hair from roots to ends for lasting moisture. This super-concentrated formula also supports scalp health. This product is also cruelty free and the packaging is oh-so pretty!
  4. Agave – Restorative Hydrating Mask: Agave is a soothing hair humectant that provides moisture & shine to the hair. This masque is an intensive reconditioning hair treatment loaded with Agave plant sugars. This product is vegan, hypoallergenic, gluten- and cruelty-free.
  5. Brigeo – Don’t Despair, Repair!™ Deep Conditioning Mask: Formulated with Briogeo’s unique NOVA Complex, this mask delivers an optimal blend of transformative nutrients from B-vitamins, rosehip and argan oils, algae, and biotin to replenish damaged hair to a shiny, healthy-looking, and lustrous state. This masque is at a great price point and the formula is free of silicones, DEA, and artificial dyes. It is also cruelty-free and is color-safe and safe for use on chemically-treated, relaxed, and keratin-treated hair.

I’d love to know what your favourite hair masque recipes are or store bought ones, let me know and maybe I can review it next! PS that beautiful makeup brush is by Ashley Sievert beautyand you can find the set of them {here}. Love Emylea xo
