Summer brings long hot days in the sun , frolicking on the beach , lazy Sunday picnics and dry, unmanageable hair!

Here are some fabulous tips, how to repair and restore your lovely locks back to their former glory ...
1.   Apply an oil rinse
Coconut, olive, and avocado oils are excellent natural hair treatments. Good at penetrating the hair shaft, the oils will also make your hair naturally shiny and frizz free. Shampoo hair as usual and then work in oil from ends to roots. Rinse and condition as usual. Your hair will feel moisturised afterwards, but not greasy.

2.   Wash less
Daily shampooing is doing more harm than good to your hair. When you wash your hair every day, you strip your hair of all the nutrients and natural oils it needs to be healthy. This can lead to breakage, brittle strands, very little shine, and overall, it will dry out your scalp. Use a homemade shampoo, such as baking soda mixed with water, in place of regular shampoo to go a bit longer without washing. To get rid of excess oil without having to do a full wash, dab some witch hazel onto a cotton ball and soak in along your scalp.

3.   On one condition
Rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar diluted in water for a quick natural conditioner. As strange as it sounds, apple cider vinegar treats itchy, dry scalps and it will leave your hair soft, smooth and shiny. Use some coconut oil or shea butter to smooth, de-frizz, and moisturise your hair after washing. The oil will give some shine and, if you have wavy hair, it will help create natural curls.

4.   Put a mask on it
Add volume to your hair if it's dry, get rid of dandruff, control the frizz and keep your hair safe from the sun, with a simple, easy to make hair mask. Use a variety of natural ingredients suited to your hair type - avocado, eggs, tea tree and coconut oils are all excellent additions to a homemade hair mask. Depending on your hair type, use a natural deep conditioning mask at least once a week (or more if necessary) to get that extra bit of moisture into your hair.

5.   Spritz and shine, smile and wave
Make a concoction of water, aloe vera juice and avocado oil. Keep it on hand and spritz whenever a bit of moisture and/or control is needed.
