In a day’s play, your hair has to go through a lot of things. From humidity, pollution, the scorching heat of the sun, and a whole lot of hair products you use, tend to mess your hair up.

There are plenty of ways in which you can give your hair a detox in a salon-style way without breaking the bank. 

What is hair detox? 

Hair detox is a treatment for your hair to bring back its lost luster and shine and give it a fresh start. It helps in the removal of dirt and also the buildup that your hair care products leave. It cleanses your hair from scalp to tip, making it more alive and lively.  

Here are the best home remedies for a hair detox. 

Bentonite clay and aloe 

Mix bentonite clay, pure Aloe Vera gel, and some apple cider vinegar to form a thick paste. Then apply to your hair and scalp. Leave the mask on for about 20-30 minutes. Use some apple cider vinegar to remove the hair mask. Wait for approximately 3-5 minutes before you shampoo and condition. 

Baking soda 

Take half-cup baking soda and mix it with three cups of hot water. Wash your hair with cold water and pour the mixture through your hair. Massage thoroughly with your fingers from the scalp to tip for a couple of minutes. Do not shampoo. Simply wash it off and condition. 

These are two popular hair detox recipes for home use.
