Cranberry & Egg Hair Mask

This particular DIY mask is simple yet effective for a dry, itchy scalp. Cranberries contain anti-inflammatory properties which are just what you need to calm any irritation or swelling. The mixture only requires two raw eggs and half a cup of cranberry juice to make your way to a balanced, dandruff-free head of hair.

Cranberry & Honey Hair Mask

Instead of trashing those leftover cranberries, combine it with a little honey for a sweet, yet tart hair mask that’s every dark hair-slayer’s dream. To mix this magical paste, you’ll need to blend it up first and refrigerate it for 30 minutes to help it thicken up. The best part? You can even apply any extra to your face for a smoothing face mask! We waste nothing around these parts.

Color-Enriching Cranberry Hair Mask

The natural red coloring in cranberries can add an extra tinge of ginger-y warmth to your locks whether you’re a natural or non-natural red head. That’s why making this hue-boosting mask is the perfectly organic element your routine has been missing. After washing, rinse your hair thoroughly with highly concentrated cranberry juice. Comb it through and let it marinate in those bright and bangin’ locks.

Cranberry works wonders for the scalp, but did you know THESE easy smoothie add-ons can also boost your hair’s health?
