We spend a small fortune on our hair, but a few days in the sun can create a downhill spiral with all the sweat, salt and sand. Help your hair survive summer with these 7 all natural DIY hair masks.
First, some preventative measures: Make the switch to natural hair care products that don’t strip your hair’s natural oils. Then protect your hair from the elements by wearing a hat. And if you’re swimming in a pool remember to wet your hair before diving in. This will help prevent any chemicals in the pool from being absorbed into your hair, which can lead to the dreaded green hair.
Then aim for a weekly hair mask treatment to address your hair issue: dry? frizzy? split ends? oily? Don’t worry, there’s a mask for that. For dry hair treatments, cover your hair with a shower cap to intensify the conditioning and keep the mask on for about 30 minutes.
These simple DIY hair masks will keep your hair strong, shiny and soft all summer long!

Moisturizing Mask for Split Ends
Up your intake of protein and healthy fats, brush gently with natural hair tools, and avoid hot styling tools when possible to keep hair moisturized and healthy. Then apply this strengthening mask once a week to nourish and heal split ends.
- 1/4 cup whole fat yogurt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Mix yogurt with olive oil and stir together. Apply to hair and leave for 15-30 minutes then wash and rinse. Olive oil contains fatty acids that coat hair, locking in moisture and protecting against damage.
