Hair follicles become inactive during summer season which leads to excessive hair fall. We bring to you a hair pack that can solve this misery in minutes. Hibiscus flowers are known to be a solution for weak roots. Soak a few petals of the flower in a bowl. After a couple of hours, blend it with curd or coconut oil. Apply this mask on your locks for half an hour. Rinse it off well with water. It strengthens the roots and also makes hair smooth and silky.
Summers are no wonder the season of cool water splashes and swimming. But with sun, sweat, salt and chlorine in the pool, summers can be extremely taxing to your hair. So, here comes the special care for those ‘so-hot days in the pool’- a universal egg-mask that can amazingly nourish your hair. Egg has moisturising properties that repairs the damage and is an accessible source of protein as well. Whisk one or two eggs (depends on your hair length) and cover up your entire hair with it. Use a shower cap to cover your head and leave the mask for twenty minutes. Wash it off thoroughly until the smell goes off. This simple-to-use hair mask will just work apt for your unruly hair.
Scorching rays make your scalp itchy, and scratching it not only causes discomfort and hair loss but also embarrassment in public. For that, you need an effective cure that can ease this problem. Go for a hair mask made of anti-biotic agents like honey and banana. Bananas contain potassium, which strengthens the roots, and honey in this equation pulls moisture to the scalp, thereby preventing it from being dry and itchy. Just blend one banana with 2-3 tablespoons of honey. Apply the paste to hair, leave on for 15-20 minutes at least. Rinse it well with cold water. The natural hair mask will work wonders for your scalp health.
It’s said that the frizzy hair is the toughest to tame and detangle. Fret not! This time you will be able to try all those cute styles, rather than just bundling up your hair during the heat. Use a mixture of mashed avocado and olive oil to apply on your hair. Leave it for about 30 minutes before washing. Avocado and olive oil together acts as smoothening natural remedies that can hydrate your hair to look smooth and lustrous.
It is not only hair that suffer due to harsh rays of sun, your skin needs equal attention in summer. Here are the 5 Homemade Summer Face Packs Your Skin Needs To Beat The Heat
Scorching heat means oily hair and greasy scalp which causes dandruff. This time, take a break from chemical-based shampoos to combat this common hair problem.

Leave it on for at least 20 minutes or more and then rinse your hair. This is an easy-to-make hair pack to treat the sticky dandruff.
Sun wreaks havoc on your tresses, leaving them lifeless. Well, here comes the super-rich and natural hair mask to flaunt your glossy hair. Take out a chunk of cream in your hands from a tender green coconut. Put it in a dish and warm it a little till it becomes soft and pliable. Slowly massage it into your hair from root to tip. Wrap your hair in a warm towel and let the mask sit on your hair for around 30 minutes. Wash off with a mild shampoo. You will feel your hair follicles to be stronger, healthy and shiny.
