Summertime can be super harsh and drying to your hair. From chlorine and saltwater to the suns rays (don’t even get me started on humidity), it’s being exposed to a lot of stressors that lead to damage and dehydration. To continue spending my summer beach-side,
I’ve concocted a DIY hair mask to keep my strands (and yours) from becoming dehydrated and dull.
The best part? You probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry.
First I like to start off with an apple cider vinegar rinse. This mixture is infused with honey, lemon and chamomile to smooth the hair cuticle and balance the pH of my scalp. Apple cider vinegar also has alpha hydroxy acids so it exfoliates my scalp, removing buildup and bacteria.
Then I follow with a thicker mixture of oil, yogurt, mayonnaise and essential oil to deeply hydrate and nourish my hair. This blend provides amino acids, vitamins and nutrients to my hair, keeping it smooth, moisturized and protected.
¼ Cup - Apple Cider Vinegar
3 tbsp Honey
¼ Cup Avocado or Jojoba Oil
1 tbsp Yogurt
1 tbsp Mayonnaise
3 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
1 Lemon (optional)
¼ Cup Chamomile Tea (optional)
Mix the apple cider vinegar and honey in a bowl. If you’re blonde, I recommend also adding the lemon juice and ¼ cup of chamomile tea.
Apply this mixture to your hair, starting at the scalp.
Combine the oil of your choice, yogurt, mayonnaise and essential oils in a bowl.
Apply this mixture to your hair, starting at the ends and working up toward your scalp.
Apply turban or head wrap and leave for 1-2 hours.
Rinse then shampoo & condition as usual.
Add 2-3 pumps of the Revitalizing Body Oil into the recipe for added nutrients.
