As much as we enjoy the summer months, the truth is that our skin and hair take a hit. We need to constantly toe the line between hair styling products and products to help combat the damage. That’s why we’ve curated a few go-to hair products for the season to help you style your hair, maintain it, and protect it from fatigue.
Come summer, itchy scalp is a huge concern. This organic anti-dandruff mask fights off itchiness while nourishing your scalp. The mask hydrates your hair and balances the oil content, leaving you with healthy luscious locks. Vitamin E helps balance the pH level of your scalp, thus reducing that much-dreaded hair fall. Pump a generous amount of the hair mask and massage it into your scalp in circular motions. This will help in increasing blood circulation, which will improve hair growth. Let it all soak for 30 minutes and then wash it off. You will be left with clean, healthy, and bouncy hair. The organic neem, tea tree, and ginger content work together to reduce infection and inflammation.
