Summer Hair Care

Do you feel like you have to choose between enjoying the sun and taking care of your hair? Why can’t we do both?

Unfortunately, many of our favorite vacation activities often involve sun, wind, chlorine, or salt water and can leave hair looking flat; but don’t let that keep you from summer fun. Keep your locks as beautiful as ever with these DIY hair recipes!


DIY Dry Hair Spritz

If your hair is dull or naturally dry, spritz this recipe over your hair throughout the day to keep it from looking dry, particularly if you are planning a day in the sun.


  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 10 drops Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood
  • 10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
  • 8 drops Cedarwood Essential Oil
  • 8 drops Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
  • 1 tsp. V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex


Add all ingredients in a 12-oz. spray bottle. Shake well before spritzing over hair, avoiding the roots.
