From over-use of heat-styling tools to the harsh environmental factors, our hair go through a lot on a regular basis. The more products we use, the more it builds up over time and clings to our hair and scalp, thereby making it dull and dehydrated. This can also lead to dandruff and other hair concerns.
The sweat, product buildup and pollution together can bring your hair game down drastically. The product buildup does not budge easily and prevents oils and moisture from penetrating the hair, thus causing your hair to lose moisture over time.
However, to help you get rid of product buildup in summer, here are 3 natural remedies that’ll act as the perfect solution...
Just like your skin, your hair too needs to be exfoliated on a regular basis. A baking soda rinse is one of the best ways to slough off any dead cells as well as oils. All you need to do is mix one tablespoon of baking soda to two tablespoons of warm water and run it through wet, unwashed hair. Massage the rinse properly from roots to ends before shampooing. You will notice that your hair feels voluminous and your scalp super clean.
Lemon juice deep cleanses your hair as well as scalp, leaving it squeaky clean without striping off its natural moisture. Apart from cleaning your scalp, lemon juice is also one of the best remedies to treat dandruff. Combine the juice of one lemon with half a litre of water and run it through clean and washed hair from scalp to ends. Lastly, rinse your hair with water and use conditioner on the ends.
Apple cider vinegar
With product buildup, your hair’s pH level loses its balance, thereby damaging the hair follicles. Therefore, adding acid back into the hair is beneficial in restoring shine. Mix a quarter cup of apple cider vinegar to one cup of water and run the mixture through clean hair. Make sure to massage the rinse into your hair and scalp thoroughly.
