Prolonged exposure in the sun not only harms your skin but also, damages your hair, making them dry and brittle. Sweat and humidity, chlorine-infused pool water and the salty ocean can leave you with straw-like locks. To protect your healthy mane from getting damaged in the humid months, the below listed DIY sprays can be of great help:
DIY Spray To De-frizz Hair
Your strands are already dried out due to the sun and chlorine. What makes it worst, is the humidity. To avoid the frizzy mess, this DIY hair spray comes to the rescue. All you need to do is mix 1 cup water, 2 tablespoons aloe, 1 teaspoon argan oil and 1 teaspoon glycerine. Pour the mixture in a large measuring cup and keep it handy to spray on your dried-out locks.
DIY Spray To Protect Hair
Don’t have a hair product that contains sunscreen? Don’t worry! Here’s a very easy way to make your own spray that has all the ingredients you need to protect your hair from the color and shine. Dilute 2 teaspoons of SPF 25 sunscreen in a cup of water and add 3-4 drops of rosemary oil. Rosemary oil stimulates hair follicles and encourages faster hair growth while making them less prone to breakage. Spritz this mixture before stepping out in the sun or before taking a dip in the pool. You can later use a clarifying shampoo to get rid of the build-up.
DIY Spray To Lighten Hair
Did you know? If your hair is exposed to the sun for a long time in the summer months, it can cause your highlights to fade and leave your hair color looking dull. But if you try this trick, then the sun can help you brighten your hair. Confused? All you need to do is make a concoction of 2 cups of water, lemon juice extracted from 2 lemons, 2 teaspoon almond oil & 10 drops of chamomile essential oil. Pour this mixture into a spray bottle and spritz before heading out in the sun. Citric acid present in lemon heat up in the sun, opening the hair cuticle to lift out pigment and deliver fabulous natural-looking golden highlights.
DIY Spray To Add Texture To Hair
Sea sprays are very common in summers. Prepare a DIY spray by mixing 1 teaspoon sea salt + 1 teaspoon coconut oil + water. Sea salt is beneficial for oily hair as it naturally pulls out oil and moisture. Lauric acid present in coconut oil deeply penetrates the hair shaft, thus, giving your hair a smooth texture.
DIY Spray To Condition Hair
Ditch your usual conditioner for the one made out of coconut milk because the high fat content, proteins and Vitamin E present in coconut milk helps hydrate your hair from roots to ends, restores split ends, prevents hair from thinning and getting damaged. It works as a perfect conditioner and improves hair growth. To prepare this conditioner at home, mix half cup coconut milk with 1 cup water and 1 teaspoon olive oil.
