These DIY all-natural hair masks are great to fight summer hair woes. So, get ready to create your own home-made hair masks with some simple ingredient you can find in your kitchen.
Hair Problem #1- Breakage
Solution –Hibiscus Hair Mask
During summers, hair follicles become inactive leading to excessive hair fall. Hibiscus works great for weaker roots! Take a few flower petals in a jar, mix it with coconut oil or curd. Apply this mask on hair for half an hour and then rinse it off with water. Along with strengthening the roots, it makes the hair lustrous and shiny.
Hair Problem #2- Chlorine damaged hair
Solution – Egg Mask
Water splashes and swimming in a pool, is this how you like to relax in summer? It is a great idea but the chlorine in swimming pool can be extremely damaging for your hair. So take care of your hair tresses with this quintessential egg-nourishing mask. We all know that protein-rich egg has moisturising properties, which is effective in repairing the hair damage. Whisk an egg or two; add a spoonful of honey and a few drops of lavender oil. Apply the mask on your hair, cover your head with a shower cap and leave the mask for twenty minutes. Wash it off and see the results on your hair!
Hair Problem #3- Dry and dull hair
Solution – Coconut Cream Mask
Too much exposure to sun can make your hair dull and dry. To bring back the gloss on your hair, try this nutrient-rich natural green coconut hair mask. Get hold of a tender green coconut and scoop out a chunk of cream. Warm it a little until it becomes semi-liquid. Massage it gently over your scalp from root to tip. Allow the mask to stay for half an hour. You can also wrap your head in a warm towel to enjoy the best benefits. Wash off with a gentle shampoo.
Hair Problem #4- Itchy scalp
Solution – Banana and honey mask
Suffering from itchy scalp? You are not alone. Scorching sunrays make our scalps dry and itchy, causing immense discomfort and hair fall. To ease the dryness and itching, try a natural hair mask composed of nutrient-rich ingredients like honey and banana. Blend one banana with 2-3 tablespoons of honey and apply the mask on your hair. Keep it for 15-20 minutes; rinse it off with cold water.
