The sun, chlorine, salt water, sand and other elements to which our beautiful hair is exposed during the summer make it lose part of its vitality and natural beauty. There are countless products that promise (and in many cases, deliver) to restore beauty to hair; But if there's one thing Latinas love, it's Grandma's little tips. We share with you a couple of homemade recipes to restore the health of your hair:
For all hair types
Egg is one of the best natural hair treatments. The yolk contains fats and proteins that work as a moisturizer, and the white contains enzymes that remove unwanted fats.
For normal hair, you can use the whole egg; for oily hair, only the whites and for dry hair, only the yolks. Prepare half a cup of the mixture according to your hair type and apply it to damp and clean hair. Allow the mixture to work for 20 minutes and wash your hair with cold water and shampoo.
For dull hair
Exposure to environmental agents and hair styling products can leave it dull and lifeless, for which milk cream or unsweetened yogurt is an excellent choice. Dairy acids remove dirt particles, while milk moisturizes.
Massage half a cup of milk cream or yogurt into wet hair, leave it to act for 20 minutes and wash with water and shampoo.
For parched scalp
To avoid or treat dandruff caused by dry hair, there is nothing better than a mixture of lemon drops and olive oil applied directly to this area.
Prepare the mixture with two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, two tablespoons of olive oil and two tablespoons of water. Apply it on your scalp, massage, let it act for 20 minutes and wash it with plenty of water and your regular shampoo.

For sun-damaged hair
After summer, honey will be your emergency hair treatment, as it is a natural moisturizer that attracts and stores the moisture that your hair needs to be healthy.
We recommend mixing two tablespoons of olive oil with half a cup of honey to make the consistency more liquid. Let it sit for 20 minutes and wash it off with warm water and shampoo.
