How to make the Cardi B Hair Mask

Cardi B Hair Mask Ingredients:

Cardi B hair mask ingredients
  • 2 Avocados: Rich in vitamins (such as vitamin E) and minerals, avocado deeply moisturizes the hair, leaving it soft and shiny. The natural oils in avocado can also help nourish and strengthen hair strands.
  • 2 Eggs: Raw eggs are packed with protein, essential for repairing damage and strengthening hair. Protein helps rebuild the structure of hair strands, making them less prone to breakage and split ends.
  • 1/2 Cup Black Castor Oil: Contains ricinoleic acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties and may promote blood circulation to the scalp, thereby encouraging hair growth. Additionally, castor oil adds an extra layer of shine and strength to the hair strands. 
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil: With its high vitamin E content, olive oil conditions the hair, adding strength and shine.
  • 1 Tbsp Argan Oil: Moisturizes, tames frizz, protects against environmental damage, nourishes the scalp, promotes healthy hair growth, and enhances shine.
  • 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise: Contains eggs and oils, providing additional protein and moisture to the hair. It can help nourish and condition the hair, leaving it soft, smooth, and shiny.
  • 1 Tbsp Honey: Honey is a natural humectant, attracting and retaining moisture. This helps to lock in hydration, making the hair softer and more manageable. Honey also adds a beautiful sheen to the hair.
  • 1 Peeled Banana: Rich in potassium, vitamins, and natural oils, banana helps soften and moisturize the hair, promoting elasticity and preventing breakage. It also adds shine and improves manageability.

Mixing Instructions:

Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to mix up the recipe!

  1. Peel and pit the avocados, then scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl or blender.
  2. Crack the eggs and add them in with the avocados.
  3. Mash the avocados and eggs together until well combined. You can use a fork or a blender to achieve a smooth consistency.
  4. Add the black castor oil, olive oil, argan oil, scoop of mayonnaise, and honey to the mixture. Stir well to ensure all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.
  5. Peel the banana and add it to the mixture. Mash the banana and mix it with the other ingredients until smooth.
  6. Once the mixture is well blended, it’s ready to use as a hair mask.

How to Apply the Mask: 

  1. Before applying the DIY mask, dampen your hair with water.
  2. Divide your hair into sections for easier application.
  3. Apply the mask generously to your hair, starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends. Make sure to coat each strand thoroughly.
  4. Once your hair is fully coated, cover it with a shower cap or plastic bag to prevent the mask from dripping.
  5. Leave the mask on for about 30 minutes to an hour to allow the ingredients to penetrate and nourish your hair.
  6. After the desired time, rinse the mask out of your hair with lukewarm water.
  7. Follow up with your regular shampoo and conditioner routine.
  8. Enjoy the soft, shiny, and nourished hair!

The Verdict: Before and After

I was honestly surprised by the end results of the Cardi B hair mask recipe. Since it has a lot of oil and with my fine hair type, I expected it to be super oily and hard to wash out. But the consistency was actually creamy and super easy to apply. After letting it sit for an hour, I shampooed my hair as usual- it felt incredibly soft and much stronger.
