Up- do Braids
Homemade remedies can be the perfect answer for dealing with all your hairstyle issues and dilemmas. They are not just a cheaper option but the ingredients used can be more beneficial than some hair care products. The best thing is that many of us already have them at home in our cupboards.
The Natural Conditioner
Egg is one of the most beneficial substances you can use to help your hair. Both elements of the egg, the yolk and the white, are beneficial for different purposes. The Yolk is rich in protein which can be used as a great moisturizer to deal with dry and damaged hair. The white, however, can be utilized to remove unwanted oils with its bacteria eating enzymes and to strengthen your hair.
The whole egg together can therefore be used as a multi purpose conditioner. The egg should be beaten to create a fluid mixture and then applied directly to the hair and left to work its magic for up to 20 minutes. To remove the mask the egg should be washed off with cold water, this is very important to remember as the egg will cook if the water is too hot and no one wants scrambled egg for hair. You can then wash your hair as normal with shampoo and conditioner. Your hair will be brilliantly shiny and sleek as a result of this excellent treatment.
Repair Broken Hair
Beer is a great substance for preventing hair breakage due to it being rich in Vitamin B and Amino Acids. However it can also boost the volume and shine of your hair while making it soft to touch. It is very simple to do, just place the beer in a glass or bowl to let the fizz go flat. Use the beer as a rinse and mix with water and wash off using shampoo and conditioner. This is a great way to repair damaged hair.
Honey contains numerous vitamins which can work wonders for your hair. The honey adds moisture when applied to the hair. One of the main contributions honey can give is the incredible shine it leaves. Apply the honey directly to the hair and rinse with warm water after 20 minutes to reap the benefits.

Summer is a time to kick back, relax and enjoy the sunshine. So when you’re topping up your tan the last thing you want to worry about is your hair. The best beach hairstyles are quick and easy, and less is definitely more when it comes to beach hairstyles. It’s all about messy, tousled tresses that reflect an effortless, natural look. So, concentrate on having fun in the sun this summer with beachy waves, twisted tresses, ponytails, braids and headscarves. Take a look at some of the top beach hairstyles we have chosen to help you look great while you’re soaking up the rays and hitting the surf this summer.
The ponytail is a hairstyle that never disappoints and is always beach safe. Once your hair has dried, separate it into a side or middle parting. Then, pull it into a ponytail at eye level, leaving a few strands loose at the sides and at the fronts. For extra volume and texture tease the ends of the ponytail. This is a great hairstyle to frolic in the sun and sand as your hair is swept away from your face.

This is a great way to protect and cover hair from the sun, wind and surf.
A French braid is an irresistible summer hairstyle. You can create all kinds of braids as a beach hairstyle and it’s a perfect style for wet hair. Just simply part your hair on the side and start a French braid that follows the hairline, working its way down toward the ear. Do this on each side of the part and secure the ends of the braids with elastics. This look can take you from day to night; after your hair has dried remove the braids to get beautiful beachy waves that are perfect for any summer bash.
Beach waves are a popular summer hairstyle every year. To get this look think tousled and wind-blown.
