Dry, brittle. Can’t deal in humidity. Frizzes out if you brush it. If this is your hair, I have just the thing for you. This anti-frizz yogurt and honey hair mask will  be your new favorite!

Most hair treatments recipes are based on oil, but if you have thin hair like me –  you just end up trying to wash oil out of your hair for days. Right!?

That’s why, ever since I tried this mask – I haven’t turned back.

It deeply conditions your hair and leaves it looking happier and shinier. And if it’s not humid out… you might even want to wear it down :)

All I ask is that you try it and let me know what you think.

Ingredient Spotlight – Yogurt and Honey Hair Mask

How is yogurt good for your hair?

Natural yogurt is full of protein, it offers nourishment that our hair needs to grow strong and healthy. It also has fat that moisturises your hair and makes for a great natural conditioner.

Are you trying to grow your hair? Yogurt has lactic acids, which is great for cleansing the scalp and clearing away dead skin cells to help your hair follicles grow.

what to look for: full fat natural yogurt

How is honey good for your hair?

Honey is a humectant, it attracts and retains moisture in your hair. Honey is also an emollient, helping to soften and smoothen. Full of vitamins, it’s also skin food for your scalp.

what to look for: raw honey from a sustainable beekeeper

  • 2 tablespoons natural yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  • Combine all of the ingredients together.
  • Work the mask onto your hair, from the scalp to the ends.
  • Give your scalp a good massage - you want the mask to cover your scalp.
  • Leave the mask on for 15 -20 minutes.
  • Wash as normal, but really well! If you use conditioner, just a small amount on the ends will do.
  • Do this treatment once a week to restore and maintain your hair.


For longer hair, just double the amounts of ingredients you use.

    Hi militza

    Do I put this mask on after shampoo and conditioner? Or do I put the mask on and then shampoo and condition afterwards?

    Thanks Artikh


    Hi! You put the mask on before shampoo and conditioner. Make sure to wash it out really well :)

    Hi Militza,

    When you say ‘wash as normal’ does that mean shampoo and rinse after leaving on the mask? So do I rinse the mask out and then use shampoo or no shampoo?

    Can I use this yoghurt and honey mask on my Keratin treated hair.
    I have oily scalp and dry ends but a bit scared if it will ruin the Keratin treatment on my hair thanks

  • militza

    I have a question. I’ve used countless oils, I’ve used various hair masks from ones sold in the stores to do it yourself ones.. mayonnaise, honey, yogurt. My hair is soft, but it looks dry, especially at the ends. I get regular trims. I’ve used henna for years. I have finally decided to let my hair go grey. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

    my hair is the same, try the LOC method (leave in, oil, cream/gel). it will hydrate your curls more effectively and then set them. also rinse your hair with cold water just before you get out of the shower, dry it with a microfiber towel or an old t-shirt and then start applying your products and either air dry and resist the urge to touch it, if you don’t have time to air dry use a diffuse, also invest in a satin pillowcase or satin turban to sleep in to prevent future frizz

    Is it good to use honey Everyday for hair treatment ?


    Hi Mitch! I have a friend who has replaced her shampoo, with honey! It’s incredibly antibacterial and cleansing for the scalp and moisturising too. I’d start slow, and build up taking notice of how your hair reacts.

  • militza

    Wow, it’s really great article. Thank you so much. For how many days did you apply this to see the results

  • militza

    With the coffee treatment my hair looked healthier and brighter right away. I mixed 1 cup strong brewed coffee with 2 tbsp coffee granules and about 3tbsp coconut oil conditioner.

    Do you think I can wrap my hair in a shower cap and sleep with the mask for better results? My hair has no shine at all, I’m very upset with the fashion nowadays, with my huge puffy hair I’d fit better in the 90’s.


    Dina -listen, if you bring back frizzy 90s hair, I’d be so happy! :) I’m not sure with the yogurt and honey, how it might smell, what little critters it might attract… :) maybe best to wash it off before bed. You can try a deep hair treatment (argan or coconut), don’t saturate your hair with oil, because you’ll be washing it off for days, but applying oil to your tips on the night before hair wash days will tame strands!

    Hi do you have any good tips and tricks for removing dead nits from hair ? They are dead eggs that are stuck in my hair for ages now and not even the fine tooth comb method is working now,
    Please help me


    This is one the best combs out there for nits removal. My daughter got lice from school a few years ago & we used this one daily. Never had a problem again.


    Also, if you can tolerate the smell, use pure neem oil on your hair first. It loosens the glue used to hold the nits to your hair shaft. Your hair may smell like burnt onions for a day or so, but it really works.

    It’s a very useful deep conditioning hair mask. My hair is curly and I straighten it once in a week. After shampooing my hair, it becomes frizzy dry dull etc. It really looks weird. I tried this hair mask and I got amazing results. My hair is super silky, healthy and shiny now. I just love this hair mask.

    For how many weeks did you apply this to see the results?


    Hi Monika! What I’ve noticed is that consistency brings and keeps the results, once a week for a month will make a big difference. Any time I slack off a bit on my self-care, I begin to notice the condition change – so the best thing is to keep it up :)

  • militza

    It looks so easy, I will try this recipe. Thank you


    Awesome! Hope you like how it works for you! :)

    Hi, which type of honey do you use? is it those over the shelf honeys sold in supermarkets or the premium graded ones?


    Hi April! You can use any honey – but I use what I have at home which is a raw honey that I get on iHerb :)

    nika Reply

    can you make a bigger portion of it and kind of keep it in a little container or something like that or will it become bad?


    You can – but you’d only use this mask once a week at most – so I think it’s best to make up a small batch as needed.

    Denise Reply

    Honey is a preservative, so that’s helpful in keeping it good in the fridge. But agreed; if only doing once a week, just make a small batch each time.
