our 3 favorite (and very effective) treatments to regenerate them this summer

Summer is not kind with dry and damaged hair. Abused by the wind, UV rays, even salt water and chlorine, the hair fiber gradually weakens. The key is a feel that is sometimes close to straw and thinner lengths. While there is no magic bullet to repair split ends, moisturizing and nourishing the hair before it breaks can make all the difference. At home, you can concoct a natural moisturizing hair mask with yogurt, or even a nourishing treatment with egg and jojoba oil.

Nat & Nove Bio Nourishing Mask

The test of the Nat et Nove marshmallow nourishing mask.

Formulated for very dry, curly or frizzy hair, this mask might not be recommended for fine hair. Yet, despite its high content of nourishing coconut oil – the first active ingredient in its composition – it regenerates the fiber without greasing or weighing it down.

The key ingredient in its formula certified organic by Cosmebio at 99% natural origin? Organic marshmallow root extract. Well known to DIY natural beauty enthusiasts – we find it, for example, in this homemade solid hair mask recipe) – this active ingredient is full of virtues. Moisturizing, sheathing and detangling, it makes hair softer and shinier.
