Keeping Hair Hydrated In Summer Heat

Summer is finally here! I think we all have been waiting for the sun to finally peep it's head out of the winter clouds. Whether you like to lay out at the beach or in the comfort of your own backyard your hair tends to become brittle and dry. A combination of the heat of the sun and the chlorine or salt water. Especially if you color your hair, you have to be extra careful that you don't fry your hair.

Here is my favorite receipt to keep your hair moist and bouncy. It's a combination of avocado and mayo.

  • 1/4 avocado, peeled and mashed
  • 1/4 mayonnaise
  • blender or food processor
Combine avocado and mayonnaise in a blender or food processor until the mass is consistent and smooth. It'll turn into a thicker form of conditioner. Apply on your hair and cover with a shower cap. Leave it on for about 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse off with a gentle shampoo.

I would apply this once a week if your hair is very dry, if your hair is not too dry apply twice a month (every 2 weeks.)

Keep cool and keep your hair moist in these sunny days and enjoy!
