It’s kind of funny that my first summer back in NY, and I’m tanner than I ever was living by the beach in Los Angeles. Ha! I think it’s a combination between the east coast humidity and having a pool only steps away from my front door. While I love outdoor living, I am no less than a control-freak when it comes to skin care– whether its 20 minutes or 4 hours of fun in the sun, I’m wearing layers of organic sunscreens to protect my skin. While skin care is a routine must– I some how forget to nourish my hair. Sun exposure, plus chlorine can really damage the hair, and it’s about time I start repairing it before the fall season hits. NYFW is coming up, and I am so excited to have my SFG gal pals in town to enjoy the festivities. And you know, we want to feel our best! So Damaged Summer Hair? No more, thanks to a DIY Summer Sun Repairing Hair Mask. This mask is simple, natural, and will provide your hair with the nourishment it needs!
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO
combine these moisturizing ingredients for shiny, soft, health hair:
- 1 avocado (moisturizes)
- 2 tbsp honey (adds shine)
- 1 tbsp of jojoba oil (protects and nourishes)
- 1 tbsp of olive oil (nourishing and moisturizing)
- 1-2 tbsp of rosemary/chamomile “tea water” (rosemary stimulates hair growth– thicker hair? Yes, please. Chamomile soothes a sun burned scalp)
(steep chamomile tea bag and 1 tbsp of rosemary in hot water. After 10 minutes, drain the liquid)
optional: add lemon grass to your rosemary/chamomile concoction– it is great for nourishing the scalp if you suffer from dandruff)
Once all the ingredients are combined into a soft paste, apply to damp hair, and then let the hair “marinate” in a warm (slightly damp) towel for 30 minutes. Then rinse out! Afterwards, your hair should feel healthier and softer!
Enjoy SFG’s! Will you try this at home? Let us know!
