DIY Hair Treatments

In just a few minutes, with some ingredients in your kitchen you can make your own hair treatments... 

Improve hair resilience and luster

- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
Whisk the ingredients together, apply the concoction to dry hair, and wrap a hot moist towel around the hair. Let the mixture sit for 5 to 10 minutes and take off the wrap. Work a pump of shampoo into your hair (without wetting your head) and rinse and condition as usual.

Remove build-up product residue

- Room temperature beer (not the light kind)
Wash and rinse your hair with shampoo as normal. Bend over with your head pointing downward and pour the beer over your hair, massaging it into your hair and scalp. Let it sit in your hair for 5 to 10 minutes, rinse it out, and follow up with your normal conditioner.

Moisturizing Conditioner

- 1 avocado, peeledr
- 1 cup of mayonnaise
Mash the avocado flesh and mayonnaise together, apply it to your hair and scalp, and cover your head with a shower cap or plastic wrap. Let the mixture sit on your head for approximitely 20 minutes and shampoo and rinse it out of your hair as usual. If your scalp is very oily, you may want to avoid this recipe since it may make it greasier.
