7 Days And 7 Summer Natural Hair Routine To Follow
Let’s begin on Monday- We hate Mondays don’t we? But you would look forward to Monday mornings when you know there is a yummy way to wake your senses up and to feed your hair too. While you are busy preparing breakfast for everyone at home, we would ask you to take a tablespoon of honey and to wrap your hair strands in it. Keep the honey on your hair for about half an hour, and then head into the shower. Wash the honey off your hair under cold running water. Pat dry and let it relax. Touch your hair now! Honey hydrates the hair and protects the scalp from build up too. If you don’t have the time to do this in the morning, doing it at night before you sleep can work miracles.
On Tuesday, you could apply a tablespoon of mayonnaise and leave it on your hair for an hour. Do this as soon as you wake up and before you start heading into the kitchen to make the morning’s first meal. Emulsify the hair strands with your fingers and then allow the hair to rest. Wash the mayo off under warm water first and then cold rose water to ward off the smells. Mayonnaise is beneficial in providing a shine and sheen to the strands and in also making the hair strong and bouncy too.
Wednesday and you are mid-week into the regime, which is a good sign. One of the ways to continue with the mid-week summer hair care routine or the summer natural hair routine, would be to wash your hair with a cup of warm water into which two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar has been added. Give your hair a wonderful massage and don’t ignore the scalp area too. apple cider vinegar does remove the build-up, dirt and grime in the hair and on the scalp, and also helps bring back the luster, shine and bounce to the hair as well.
Come Thursday and you would already be very happy with your hair, but let’s not stop here. You can make a paste of coconut kernel and apply it on your hair strands for deep conditioning. Massage the hair and the scalp for five minutes with your fingers, after which you must wash off the hair with warm water. Don’t keep the paste on the hair for too long or else it would make the hair oily and limp.
On Friday, you must wash your hair with lemon juice and water. The amount of vitamin C in lime juice that can help your hair would startle you. Your hair when washed with lime juice also rids the hair of dead scalp skin and build up on the scalp, and also helps provide plenty of nourishment to dry hair and scalp too.
