Natural Ways To Revitalize Your Hair And Skin

Spending time outdoors in the summer can do some damage to your hair and skin. Both hair and skin can suffer from too much sun, or from salt in the ocean or chlorine in swimming pools.

Aloe vera juice and honey can alleviate the dryness of your skin. Dry hair can turn frizzy and dull. Regular fat yogurt and half a banana blended together can be worked into your hair and left for 10 minutes. Wash your hair as you normally do, and see new shine imparted to your hair.

"The potassium in the banana will fill gaps in the hair's cuticle which will make your hair feel smooth. Plus the many vitamins in bananas will improve your hair's elasticity and over time will lessen breakage. The lactic acid in the yogurt helps maintain the ph balance of your scalp and hair so your hair will stay shiny and manageable, no matter how much time you spend outdoors."

I think the scalp would be affected by treatments for the hair, but no, I meant hair and skin. The article is talking about the drying and damage that happens to hair and skin being out in the summer sun, or swimming and so forth.
