DIY Hair Masks
Summer is hard on our hair. It takes a beating from the sun and chlorine, and weakens with brushing and styling. Undo the damage – and have a little fun with a DIY project – by whipping up a hair mask using ingredients that are already in your pantry and fridge. It's an affordable treat for your tresses and because it comes from your kitchen, you won't deal with any impossible-to-pronounce ingredients.
Try these three at-home recipes from Helen Ambrosen, product creator for Lush. You don't have to be a whiz in the kitchen to make them, but if you'd rather shop for a hair treatment, Lush, a line of natural, handmade bath and body products, offers a variety at its stores and at lushusa.com.
