The DIY hair mask recipes Cardi B relies on for shiny, hydrated hair

You've probably already got all the ingredients in your pantry

Undoubtedly the quarantine gift that just keeps on giving, Cardi B has blessed us once more with some quality content.

The rapper recently shared with her Instagram followers a super easy DIY hair mask, which the mum says she likes to use on her own and her daughter Kulture’s hair for ultra-shiny results.

‘All the good things that you put in your body, you gotta put in your hair,” a natural hair and no makeup Cardi explained. “You’re not gonna put soda in your hair because soda ain’t good for your body.”

Makes sense.

Cardi blends herself a thankfully non-carbonated formula of argan oil, caster oil, olive oil, avocado, raw eggs, bananas, honey and mayonnaise. Delish.

“This treatment is really good for curl patterns. I don’t really have a curl pattern but my baby does.”

Cardi shared the masks’ results to Instagram with the caption: “The end results of all that [stuff] I put on my hair earlier😩😂😂.Treat your hair ladies ...and don’t let a [anyone] tell you [anything] ‘bout wearing wigs😤It helps with hair growth ALOT!”



That's not the only DIY recipe Cardi relies on, though; she just took to Instagram Stories to share another option, this time focused on giving the hair a hearty hit of hydration.

The ingredients you'll need for this moisturising mask? One avocado, one egg, a generous dollop of honey, some castor oil and a healthy scoop of coconut oil.

The process is super simple, too 
– just whack everything into a blender and mix until combined and creamy. She specifically recommends waiting until there are "no avocado chunks [as] it's hard to take out of the hair," noting that it needs to be "as smooth as impossible." Your wish is our command, Cardi.
