Beat Summer Hair Woes With These 7 DIY Masks

We spend a small fortune on our hair, but a few days in the sun can create a downhill spiral with all the sweat, salt and sand. Help your hair survive beat summer with these 7 all natural DIY hair masks.

1. Clarifying Mask for Itchy Scalps

Salt and oil combine in a scalp scrub to stimulate hair growth and remove any dandruff or dry flakes without drying out the scalp. The olive oil conditions hair while the lemon juice dissolves product residue.

  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil

Mix salt, lemon juice and oil together then wet hair and massage scrub into scalp for several minutes. Rinse well and shampoo.

2. Moisturizing Mask for Split Ends

Up your intake of protein and healthy fats, brush gently with natural hair tools, and avoid hot styling tools when possible to keep hair moisturized and healthy. Then apply this strengthening mask once a week to nourish and heal split ends.

  • 1/4 cup whole fat yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Mix yogurt with olive oil and stir together. Apply to hair and leave for 15-30 minutes then wash and rinse. Olive oil contains fatty acids that coat hair, locking in moisture and protecting against damage.

3. Extra Conditioning Mask for Dry Hair

A honey hair mask is extra conditioning and super hydrating. Raw honey is naturally moisturizing, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory, as well as conducive to healing. Oils like avocado and almond have proteins that help strengthen the hair shaft.

  • 2 tablespoons oil like coconut, avocado or almond oil
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey

Combine the ingredients and heat in the microwave for a few seconds until warm enough to spread easily. Massage the mixture onto your scalp, then cover with a shower cap for 30 minutes to an hour. Rinse well, and enjoy not just a soothed, flake-free scalp, but gorgeously soft, shiny hair as a result. Read More……………
