Summer spells disaster for your precious tresses. As if the sweat and grime weren't causing enough trouble to your scalp, the sweltering heat can end up frying your hair and creating loads of hair problems. Beat the sun by giving your dry hair strands a refreshing boost with these tried-and-tested rinses. These are easy to make and great for your hair.
Green tea rinse: Wondering what to do with the box of green tea that you were once enthusiastic about? Don’t give it away. Use it as a hair rinse! Prepare a decoction as you would normally do and give your hair a final rinse with it. Green tea boosts hair growth  and has a mild sunscreen-like property  that will protect your hair from the rays of the sun.
Hibiscus: Folklore medicines regard the hibiscus as a hair-growth promoter . Before the advent of shampoos and conditioners, rural Indian women ground up hibiscus leaves and flowers to make a soapy solution to wash their tresses. Try boiling a few hibiscus flowers and use the bright red tea to rinse your hair.
Apple cider vinegar: An old favourite, apple cider vinegar was also favoured by the No Shampoo proponents for its conditioning and grease-busting properties. Add half-a-cup to a mug of cold water and rinse your hair with it. Your hair will shine!
Beer: Even teetotallers can’t deny the beauty benefits of beer. This fizzy, alcoholic drink is a tried-and-tested remedy for giving body and shine to your hair. Rinse your dull, unmanageable hair with a cup of diluted beer and watch your tresses transform in no time.
Black tea: Like its green cousin, black tea is replete with hair growth-boosting properties. Caffeine content in black tea promotes hair growth, which makes it an excellent rinse for your hair during summer.
