You must have noticed that your hair on the second day after a hair wash looks and feels the best! You can style them, you can leave them open and you can basically set them the way you want. Although, your hair, even on the second day will start feeling like you haven't washed your hair in a week during summer months. This is because of all the heat that accumulates on your head, the sweat and the dirt that settles in. All of which leaves your hair feeling oily and flat. But it's not possible to take a hair wash every second day, rather you shouldn't. So what should be done then? We've got you a solution - just make yourself some dry shampoo at home! Yes, that's very much possible and also very easy. If you use these DIY dry shampoo for hair care in summer, you won't have to wash your hair every alternate day and you'll still have fresh hair for a few more days.
