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.

    Simple and effective! My thin, fine hair had started to become broken and frizzy looking. This easy mask calmed the frizz and restored the luster…so grateful!


    Hi Susan! It’s such a simple recipe, but makes a big difference! I’m so glad you tried it and that you found success with it!

    Though this type of DIY hair mask is not for all, it’s still worthwhile to try it yourself to know. I’m going to try it this weekend – I hope this works for me. :)

    Should the hair be wet before applying?


    Hi Nia! You can apply your masks to dry hair, put it on 15 minutes before you jump in the shower :)

    Hi! I wanted to know how long would this mask last if say for example you stock this in the fridge?


    Hi Rochelle, I would give it up to five days in the fridge. Just make sure to cover it well :)

    My hair is thin and curly, on the frizzy side. It breaks and creates knots easily so I thougt a yogourt mask would help but really it didn’t! It was even harder to untangle them after the mask. Not a good idea for my type of hair :(

    Okay, it is mostly protien it doesnt moisterise. For healthy hair you need the right balance of Protein x Moisture for your hair type. Use a moisture shampoo and conidtioner and you should be fine. Also follow up with a nice hair oil ( no silicones etc ) after u get outta the shower with 80 to 90% wet hair and dry as you usually would ( I use either a mix of or either of the following : Rosehip Seed Oil, Flaxseed oil, Hemp Seed oil, Chiaseed oil, meadowfoam oil or even just EVOO) a lil goes a long way too


    This sounds great! To the posters recommending using a hair oil – a leave in hair oil is absolutely no good for those of us with thin, fine hair. Even rinse out oils can leave build up that lasts for days, if your hair is fine!

    I have an incredibly itchy, flaky scalp and am going to try this mask tomorrow. That’s if I can resist eating it! ?


    I’m middle aged with a hypothyroid condition which makes your hair dry and I color my hair. So my hair is in bad condition. From other posts it seems adding oil would be a good idea. My latest favorite is avocado oil. Less than ten drops should do it, I would think. I have long hair so I’ll be doubling the recipe. ?

    Hun that means there was yogurt still left ur hair…
    Anyhew i was wo derin if this mask will strip my color from my hair


    Hi Yoli! The honey in the mask, can lighten hair… I haven’t come across anyone who’s had the color stripped though. Its a small amount, that’s only on for 10-15 minutes… for me it hasn’t effected the color at all. You can also replace the honey with a plant oil, that would work really well too :)

    I have fine, thin hair. I really liked what the mask did for my hair. After a month of no poo, my hair went crazy. Greasy to dry and frizzy to what the heck!!! Coconut oil, egg wash, olive oil have all been nightmares for my hair. Tried this. I rinsed forever…. scrubbed forever and when it was dry it felt nice and looked great. However, while running an errand, all dolled up because my hair finally looked good, I caught a wiff of something foul. I thought maybe there was rotten food in the car. Turns out it was my hair. It smelled like rotten milk. :( I live 30 mins from town, so there was no turning around. Had to deal with skunk hair for about 4 hours…. maybe will just try honey by itself.


    Hi Sarah! Oh no! Next time, try it on a day that you’re not going out – and maybe see if washing it out with shampoo takes care of that. I haven’t had this happen, but I can imagine that it was a long four hours for you!! Give it another try, if it worked well for you hair – it’s just a matter of figuring out how to wash out the yogurt fully. Thank for sharing this!!
