5 Natural Quick Fixes For Your Summer Hair Problems

January 10, 2012
Oily hair? Itchy scalp? Forget expensive chemical-laden products laden – we’ve got 5 natural quick fixes to make you love your hair all over again.

Itchy scalp? Mash 1 ripe avocado. After shampooing and conditioning, towel dry your hair and massage the avocado into the scalp. Pop a shower cap on and relax for 10 minutes, then wash out. The avocado oils nourish your scalp and this is a nice treatment to do once a week.

Oily hair? Mix 1 tbsp baking soda with a little water to form a runny paste, and massage into your scalp and roots after shampooing. Leave for 2 minutes, then rinse with cool water. Follow with conditioner.

Flat, lifeless hair Shampoo and condition your hair as usual, then pour a bottle of beer through your hair. Rinse with cool water. The yeast in the beer pumps body in your hair.

Dull hair? Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon into a 600ml water bottle and top with cold water. Shake, and after shampooing your hair, bottle the lemon water over your hair and massage in. Rinse.

Over-styled, damaged hair? Shampoo your hair and rinse. Towel dry. Massage a palmful of coconut oil (olive oil works well too) into the roots through to the ends. Pop a shower cap on and relax for 10-20 minutes, then rinse with cool water.
