While I love winter, it definitely means I need to put in more work to keep my hair healthy. Where I live, the temperature can sometimes shift 20 degrees in one day, which often leaves my locks frizzy or lackluster.

I’ve found the key to keeping my hair looking healthy year-round is doing a weekly hair mask I make myself- I promise it’s easier than you think and super effective! As you’ll see below, you can whip up a powerful one right at home using ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.

Here are six of my favorite go-to recipes for all kinds of hair issues, from dryness to dullness to excess oil (and one that addresses all three). I encourage you to try one the next time you want to give your hair a little salon-quality TLC at home.
