3 Easy DIY Fixes for Dull and Frizzy Summer Hair


Just because it’s hot outside doesn’t mean that you have to walk around with messy hair. These easy DIY remedies harness the sun’s heat to rejuvenate strands in a flash — so you’re hair will look amazing despite humidity, chlorine, or whatever summer throws your way. 

To restore luster: Help it out with honey.

Mix equal parts honey and warm water in a small spray bottle; shake well and spritz the mixture onto your damp strands before going outside. The sun activates honey’s glucose oxidase, which is a mild bleaching agent that enhances natural highlights to brighten dull locks.

To tame frizz: Calm with coconut oil.

Run a dime-size amount of liquefied coconut oil through your damp strands; then let it air-dry. Fatty acids in coconut oil seal hair’s cuticle to keep the strand-swelling humidity out and lock hair-nourishing vitamins in, while the sun’s heat sets the frizz-free style in place.

To rehydrate: Soothe with strawberry yogurt.

Blend 1/4 cup of yogurt with five strawberries; apply to your damp hair and then relax in the sun for 20 minutes; rinse. Yogurt’s creamy fats condition, strawberries’ vitamins A and C fortify and strengthen strands, and the sun’s heat opens hair’s cuticle for better penetration.
