Rap and hip-hop superstar Cardi B has shared her home-made hair growth mask with her millions of TikTok and Instagram followers.

The 27-year-old star posted a video of her new-look hair. She explains in the caption that her hair never passed her shoulders but, with discipline, her hair is finally growing.

Cardi B’s hair secrets:


Cardi B suggests that you detangle your hair while it is still dry. According to the rapper, this will make it easier to detangle your hair, once you eventually wet it.



Add one avocado, two raw eggs, one tablespoon of mayonnaise and some black castor oil (or another oil that works best on your hair). Blend these items together for your hair mask and apply to your hair.


Leave the mask on for as long as you can, with your head covered in plastic (or even a shower cap). Cardi suggests: “Let that marinade like chicken”.


Make sure you rinse all the mask ingredients out of your hair.


After rinsing the mask out, shampoo and condition your hair. Then, detangle your hair again.


The rapper uses rice water that she prepares the day before. Cardi suggests putting it in the sun so that the water can soak up some of the goodness of the rice. She then adds this liquid to a spray bottle and sprays it evenly all over her hair.

CURLERS (Optional)

Cardi recommends rolling your hair before blow-drying, as direct heat on wet hair causes heat damage. She also thinks  that this step makes the results 100% better. Then proceed to dry your hair in curlers.


If you did the previous step, take curlers out and blow dry hair straight. If not, just blow dry your hair as normal.

Cardi B has never shied away from showing her natural hair. In a post to Instagram, Cardi showed off her natural hair texture and showed how much it had grown.

The mask for her baby girl includes avocado, 100% pure argan oil, 100% pure black Jamaican castor oil, olive oil, eggs, honey, mayonnaise, and banana.

Cardi B also says to not let a man tell you not to wear wigs, as it helps a lot with hair growth.
