Care Hair

Spritz and Get Refreshed

Hair suggests vitamin-packed homemade hair mists to add that perfect shine and finish to your hair.

The chill in the air and the cold wintry mornings are long over. Come spring-summer season and it’s time to indulge in outdoor fun–pool parties, beach visits and vacations. Summer is also the best time to get rid of layers and flaunt your mane. However, this could lead to damaged hair owing to the heat, chlorine or excessive use of styling products. The upkeep of hair is very essential, especially between those hair washes at home and your salon visits. To keep your hair healthy and shiny through summer, you tend to load it with various products–different shampoos, conditioners, serums and hair masques–and end up doing more damage than good.

So what’s the quickest and most effective way to stay on top of your hair health during the hot summer months? The light and sweet-scented hair mists are the best solution to maintain your mane. These not only refresh your hair and make it smell divine but also hydrate, strengthen and protect your tresses.

And the best thing is, you needn’t spend a fortune on buying them off the beauty racks. Hair mists are extremely easy to recreate at home and are travel-friendly as well. With just a few ingredients, you can whip them up at home and keep smelling fragrant through the season.

A major plus point is that you know exactly what ingredient went into making the mist and ensure hair safety. It takes good care of your hair minus those harmful chemicals. However, as they are made up of natural ingredients, they need to be stored in a refrigerator so as to preserve them for a longer time.

These easy DIY hair mist recipes keep your hair shiny and healthy without layering it in products. Pick your choice as per your requirement and have happy hair.
