Irrespective of your gender, summer can be harsh on your hair, causing issues such as dandruff, split-ends, hair loss, itching, and sticky hair. To prevent these problems, it's essential to take good care of your hair in the summer months. Here are some easy-to-make DIY hair masks that can help you maintain healthy and silky hair this summer.
Milk is an easily available ingredient that adds volume and shine to your hair. After washing your hair with shampoo, apply milk to your scalp and keep it on for five minutes. Rinse with normal water to get voluminous hair.
Eggs are a good source of protein and nourishing elements that can repair damaged hair. Whisk one or two eggs (depending on your hair length), apply to your hair and scalp, and cover with a shower cap or cotton cloth. Leave the mask on for 20 minutes, then rinse with cold water. This easy-to-use hair mask can work wonders for dry hair.
Warm coconut oil is a great conditioning treatment for your hair. Massage it into your hair and scalp twice a week, then soak a towel in hot water and wrap it over your head. Keep it on for five minutes and repeat this process 3-4 times with the warm towel. Leave the oil on overnight for better results and wash your hair the next day with a mild shampoo.
Summer heat can irritate your scalp, causing itchiness and hair loss. To alleviate this condition, use a hair mask that contains antibacterial elements such as honey and banana. Bananas contain potassium, which strengthens the roots, while honey draws moisture to the scalp. Simply blend one banana with 2-3 tablespoons of honey, apply the paste to your hair, and leave it on for at least 15-20 minutes. Rinse with cold water. This natural hair mask will improve the condition of your scalp and make your hair smooth and healthy.
Avocado's protein and oil content nourish the hair, giving it volume and smoothness. Mash one avocado into a pulp, then mix it with 1 tbsp steeped green tea + 1 tbsp fenugreek (methi) seed powder, and add lukewarm water to make a paste. Apply it to your hair for half an hour and then wash it off.
Amla hair oil helps keep the scalp's acid-alkaline in check and prevents dandruff. Take a handful of dry amla and coarsely grind it. Mix it with 100 ml pure coconut oil, place it in an airtight container, and expose it to the sun for 15 days. After 15 days, strain the oil in a glass jar, and it's ready to use as your daily hair oil.
