Cucumber is a great ingredient to help repair damaged hair

Because cucumber is loaded with moisture, vitamin A, vitamin C, and silica, it’s a powerful weapon to use in any DIY hair masque for dry, damaged hair. Cucumber has great moisturizing properties, and can help maintain pH balance, keeping hair healthy during summer months of wind, sun, chlorine, and heat damage.

Here are a DIY home treatments that include cucumber in the recipe:

Cucumber restorative shampoo: Mash (or puree) one small PEELED cucumber until almost liquid state and add the juice of one lemon. Mix well and then apply while you’re in the shower after hair is thoroughly wet. Use as you would a shampoo, and then rinse.

Cucumber Hair Mask: Mash a small PEELED cucumber and mix with 5-6 TBSP of plain greek yogurt. Whisk together 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar and 1 tsp olive oil. Add the vinegar and olive oil mix into the yogurt-cucumber and mix well. Apply to hair dampened with warm water, and wrap into Saran Wrap or a shower cap for about 20 minutes. Rinse, shampoo and condition as usual.
