Hair therapy treats dandruff, frizzy hair, and hair loss while also making hair healthy, bouncy, and glossy. Hair Therapy often starts with a mask and ends with a rinse, massage, and steam. Moreover, salon visits are expensive and chemical-based spa treatments only produce short-term improvements while having the potential to permanently harm the health of the hair. Synthetic chemical-based hair masks that are widely available on the market clog the pores of the scalp and render hair hydrophobic, which over time results in dry and brittle hair. So, in order to address the aforementioned issues, we seek to create a low-cost, self-applying herbal hair mask. The regular usage of this mask as a thorough hair repair and care regimen, particularly for dry and frizzy hair, is theorized. Olive oil and stearic acid served as the base for the hair mask. The study showed that the concentration of oil and alkali in hair masks affects their solid and dirt-dispersion properties. In light of the findings, it can be concluded that an affordable self-applicable hair mask can be created for thorough hair repair and hair care therapy, particularly for dry and frizzy hair.
