How To Make Cardi B's Easy DIY Hair Mask

Cardi B is known for rocking a multitude of different wigs for performances and just for fun. She also wears wigs as a protective style for her natural hair.

The ingredients are likely already in your fridge and pantry!

"This is really how my hair is," she explained to her fans in a video. "My hair gets like this when you blow dry it and two days later it looks puff puff like this, even when you braid it. She added, "[My hair is] just straight like this."

Cardi then gave a step-by-step tutorial on the hair mask she's used to smooth her tresses and revealed old photos showing how much doing the mask grew her hair over the years.

Meanwhile, hours after doing the mask, Cardi posted a photo on Instagram of the end results. The rapper had shiny, silky and long hair compared to her previously kinky hair texture. "Treat your hair ladies," she wrote in the caption. "It helps with hair growth ALOT!" She also criticized men for thinking that long hair is only possible with wigs.
