Spring is a time for rejuvenation and renewal. A time to clear out the clutter in your home, replace heavy winter clothes with airy styles, lighten up your makeup look, and rejuvenate your strands after a season of harsh weather.
To help you achieve shiny, gorgeous strands for spring, Butterfly Studio Salon owner and expert stylist, Kattia Solano, has shared two amazingly simple DIY recipes to revive your hair.
To help remove buildup from a long winter of heavy styling and refresh my hair for spring, I apply a simple “Hair Spritzer” treatment once a week.
1/2 cup of sparkling water
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar?The juice from 1/4 of a lemon
Pour ingredients into a spray bottle, shake well and apply to dry hair from roots to ends until fully saturated. Lightly massage your head for a couple of minutes, allowing the spritzer to fully absorb. Rinse thoroughly. Follow with a wash using a cleansing shampoo and finish by taking your favorite hair mask and mixing in a natural fruit, nut, or vegetable oil for an extra boost of moisture.
I also love adding an oil treatment to conditioner using natural oils from the kitchen to deeply hydrate dry hair.
I recommend either mixing extra virgin olive oil with avocado oil or almond oil with coconut oil. Break open a capsule of Vitamin E and add to the mix for instant hair nourishment. Mixing in ½ of an avocado will help to strengthen the hair if it’s brittle and will also give your treatment a richer and creamier consistency.
Work the treatment into the hair and let it sit for 10-15 minutes and rinse thoroughly. If you’re in a rush, you can rub a little almond oil or coconut oil onto the ends of wet or dry hair to keep them from drying out.
