Summer can be rough on hair. Sun, salt water, chlorine, wind, and environmental factors can all threaten your hair’s resilience.
But, there are easy DIY methods to prevent breakage, strengthen your hair, restore moisture, and nourish your strands for flowing locks of luxuriousness.
And the best part is… many of these ingredients are multi-functional!
Every now and then our hair needs extra love. Especially when you’re outside more and exposed to the elements, like heat, sun, and chemicals we may use to fight off bugs and prevent UV ray exposure to our skin. (Our hair is impacted by UV rays too!)
So, every couple of weeks, some extra love like this hair mask, is going to do wonders for your hair: restoring luster, softness, shine, and strength to your beloved summer locks.
- 1 Egg
- Argan oil
- Rosemary Essential Oil
To use: Blend 1 tablespoon of Argan Oil with the egg, a teaspoon of honey, and 6 drops of rosemary essential oil. Apply it to your hair, starting at the ends, and making your way up to the ears.
Leave the mask on for 20-30 minutes. Rinse out with warm water, and shampoo or cleanse your scalp as you would in your normal routine, ensuring the mask is removed.
Argan oil is a luscious multi-tasker that can be used on both hair and skin. Because of its small molecules, it absorbs into hair more readily than other oils. It also is a wonderful facial cleanser or moisturizer. It can be used head to toe for all-over moisture… definitely a must-have in the natural, DIYer health care kit!
Sometimes the ends of our hair need a pick-me-up. They are always the driest and most damaged, simply because they’ve seen the most life! So treat them kindly, as they’ve come a long way with you.
This simple Sandalwood Hydrosol Spritz is nourishing, easy to do at any time, and will protect your hair, reducing breakage, dryness, and split ends, while restoring luster and shine.
Plus, this multi-tasking spritz can be used for so much more, too — a room spray, skin enhancer, hydrating body mist, and facial rejuvenator… it’s incredible!
Styling products and heat can damage your hair.
Many products have chemicals, such as phthalates, parabens, and preservatives that build up over time, dry your strands out, make your scalp greasy, or cause damage to your hair, reducing shine, luster, and smoothness.
At Floracopeia, none of our products have these harmful synthetic chemicals or preservatives. We always bring you 100% pure, organic, and sustainably sourced botanicals, straight from nature. So they are great for your body, health, and the planet!
Consider skipping the hair gels, spritzers, and hair sprays to prevent flyaways this summer. Instead, try smoothing some Jojoba Oil between your fingers, and taming your flyaways by gently smoothing your hair.
It also is a solid protectant against heated styling tools.
And, if you have a little excess on your hands still, run them on your elbows or knees, or wherever your skin could use a little nourishment!
Jojoba oil is a superb multi-tasker as well, and heavily nourishes skin and hair alike. This nutrient-rich carrier oil (actually a plant wax!) mimics our own skin’s sebum, and is readily absorbed, leaving your skin (and hair) smooth, moisturized, strong, and healthy.
Because our products are natural, organic, and from plants, these hair care products are safe to use on skin.
And if your hair is looking stressed, there’s a good chance your skin could use a little love and repair too!
