Putting your hair under the hair dryer every morning can do real damage. So can long-term exposure to the sun, or even the winter chill. But you have to look good, right? You can add moisture back to your hair with the use of eggs, olive oil and even vinegar without the need to buy expensive conditioners. These remedies are easy to apply, but you will have to think outside the box.
It is the nastiest of the bunch, but it works wonders. Eggs are a low fat, protein rich food that can do wonders for your skin and hair. Many store-bought conditioners claim to work as protein treatments, but you can get straight to the source by using eggs. They also contain vitamin B-12 and are high in sulfur, which can promote a moist, healthy scalp. All you have to do is separate the yolk from two eggs, then beat the yolks in a mixing bowl before slathering them into your hair. Allow the mixture to sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing with cool water. If you want to get fancy, the author of "Natural Beauty At Home," Janice Cox, suggests simply beating an egg yolk into a tablespoon of your normal shampoo.
Olive oil locks moisture in naturally, so it makes plenty of sense to use it in your hair. It is full of antioxidants and vitamins to repair and nourish dry, damaged hair. It is recommended to use the extra virgin variety because it doesn’t contain any foreign additives. There is nothing to it; simply massage the olive oil directly into your hair all the way to the roots. Allow it so sit for about 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
