    My hair is in need of some TLC and so I was wondering whether anyone has any suggestions for a hair mask to give it some life? Either one can make or buy. I'm currently using Aussie 3 minute miracle conditioner. Thanks

    I use one by Fructis which I love, smells gorgeous. Its in a small round pot and costs about £4 I think. Or you could try VO5 Hot Oil.

    Dont know about any homemade ones sorry!

    Frizz ease miraculous recovery. comes in a tub or i think you can buy a sachet.

    Hi, I havent tried these, but found em for ya!
    you should try washing your hair, removing excess moisture, add conditioner or intensive condition, or some of the hair masks below aswrapping in a town for like 20 mins, or do what I do, which is use my hair dryer on a low heat on me hair to warm the conditioner it, then rinse.

    Combine 1 banana, 1 egg, 1/4 cup honey, about 3 Tbs of milk and about 5 Tbs spoons of olive oil. Massage on the scalp and leave it for 15 minutes. Wash with a mild shampoo.

    Zinc and essential fatty acids (pumpkin seeds, nuts, vegetable oils) are good for dry hair. Eating the foods rich in zinc help.

    Falling Hair, Hair Loss
    Rub Indian gooseberry (Amla) into the scalp regularly. It can show wonderful results, it will stop hair falling.
    Eat a protein rich diet inluding green leafy vegetables, carrots, mango, dried apricots, whole grain cereals, sprouts, lentils in the daily diet for the hair loss and falling hair.

    Split Hair
    Oil your hair twice a week with coconut oil mixed with fresh lime juice.

    Frizzy Hair
    Make an after-shampoo rinse by mixing one tablepsoon of honey to a liter of water. Use it after every hair wash with your usual shampoo.
