Summer in Boca Raton, Florida is all about enjoying some fun in the sun. We all love a beach day or a good pool party, but participating in some of these activities can cause some havoc on not only your hair cut, but your hair. In the summer, your hair is exposed to more UV rays and drying elements such as salt water and chlorinated pool water, especially in Boca Raton, FL. These factors can cause frizz to have a field day, which is amplified if you also use heat styling tools. The trick to avoiding this summer hair madness is to treat your hair to some TLC on a weekly basis.

Did you know that many of the ingredients that you keep in your kitchen can also be used keep your hair healthy? For example—coconut oil. You’ve probably heard of all of the amazing uses for coconut oil, but did you know that it’s also one of the few oils that has a molecule small enough to penetrate into your hair to provide deep moisture? It’s true. That’s just one of the household ingredients that can be used as a treatment for your hair.
We’ve whipped up a recipe for a frizz-fighting hair masque that will help you repair your hair while adding moisture to your mane and we’re excited to share it with you today!
DIY Hair Masque
What You’ll Need:
1 Avocado (Softens hair and promotes healthy hair growth)
2 Eggs (Packed with protein to repair hair while promoting growth)
1 Tablespoon of Raw Honey (Anti-bacterial and moisturizing properties)
2 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil (Provides deep moisture)
3 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil (Great for scalp health- for those who are experiencing thinning of their hair you can substitute peppermint oil for either rosemary oil or lavender oil. Both are great for stimulating the follicle.)
Disposable shower cap
Directions: Start by mix all ingredients into a bowl. Once you have thoroughly mixed all of the ingredients, gently work the mix into your strands starting from the ends of your hair, and working your way to the roots. After distributing the mix into your hair, place your hair into a disposable shower cap and allow the masque to absorb into your hair for 15-20 minutes. For maximum results, allow the masque to sit in your hair while you are taking a hot shower or sitting by your pool. The warmth of the shower or the sun will help to open the hair follicle allowing the treatment to penetrate deeper into your hair. When you are ready to take off the masque rinse the mixture from your hair and follow with your normal washing/conditioning routine.
