4 DIY Hair Hacks That Really Work

Posted by on

LEMONS

DIY some subtle ombré ends – without spending a fortune at the hairdressers.
Just squeeze one lemon into a bowl, dip a clean toothbrush into it, then gently
comb through the areas you want to lighten. Finally, sit in the sun (wearing SPF,
obvs) and let the lemon juice do its thing. FYI, the acidity in the juice can have a
drying effect on your locks, so be sure to follow up the next day with a DIY
hair mask. 


AN OLD T-SHIRT

Ditch your usual bath towel and dry your hair using an old cotton T-shirt instead.
It absorbs the water, without aggravating the cuticle, which can cause frizz. Just
make sure to squeeze your locks, rather than rubbing them, as this can also cause
hair to frizz up.

BAKING SODA & VINEGAR

Blow-dry lotion, smoothing serum, hairspray, dry shampoo… We put our hair
through a lot. Get rid of any excess product build-up with this recipe for
sparkling clean hair:

PART 1: SODA SHAMPOO. Mix one part baking soda with three parts
water, then apply to your hair instead of your usual shampoo. Leave for a
few minutes, then rinse with warm water.
PART 2: VINEGAR RINSE. Mix one part apple cider vinegar (not the stuff
you’d use for your chips) with four parts water. Add a drop of scented
essential oil (we like lavender) to minimise the vinegary smell, then pour
over your hair, being careful to avoid your eyes. After a few seconds, rinse
with cold water to close your hair cuticles and add shine.


COCOA POWDER

If you’ve got dark hair, you may struggle to find a good dry shampoo that doesn’t
turn your roots grey. Make your own instead by mixing together 2 tbsp cocoa
powder, 2 tbsp cornflour and ½ tsp cinnamon. Sprinkle at your roots, then rub
through with your fingers.
