Honey For centuries European monks and friendly white witches used honey to treat wounds - it's a great antiseptic. But it's also excellent for returning moisture to dry and chlorine-damaged hair. Blend a little vinegar with rosemary oil and honey for damaged hair. For hair bleached and ravaged by sun, use half a cup of honey on its own and rub into clean, damp hair. You can also blend it with egg yolk or avocado for additional conditioning power.



Beer You could open a six-pack and put your feet up to watch your latest Netflix obsession - or you could wash your hair and rinse it with beer for an extra special clean. The combination of hops and alcohol works as an astringent that can getting rid of product build-up and dirt. Shampoo your hair as usual, then rinse with beer warmed to room temperature. Massage deeply with fingertips into scalp to remove all product residue and grime. Now rinse with water then use your regular conditioner to round off.



Avocado Instead of mashing them into an ingredient for guacamole, try using avocados as a rich conditioner. Avocados are full of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, B6, D and E, copper, magnesium and iron, which encourage hair growth and moisturize dry and brittle hair. And you can still use the leftovers for a dip. How good is that?


Baking Soda

Baking Soda Most people have baking soda in their fridge or kitchen cupboard for the occasional bout of baking - but baking soda is also a great hair cleanser. Use when your regular shampoo is not strong enough to shift product build-up and dirt in your hair. You need to mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of baking powder soda with a small amount of water; Stir until a thick paste is achieved, then massage into your damp hair. Leave for 15 minutes before shampooing and rinsing with warm water in the normal way.



Eggs Packed with protein, beloved by kids and Easter Bunnies, eggs are excellent ingredients for repairing damaged hair in a home-made hair mask. The fat contained in egg yolks helps to condition dry hair, while the enzymes inherent in egg whites will eliminate oil. Blend one whole egg with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and one cup of water to create a hair mask. Massage into your scalp and leave on for about 20 minutes before rinsing out with warm water.



Lemons If your blonde tresses have lost their sparkle a little during dark winter months, use lemon to bring back the blonde or give you highlights. Lemon is also great for getting rid of dandruff.

Blend 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of water. Massage this mixture into your scalp and leave for 20 minutes. Now rinse with warm water. The lemon's acidity will remove any flakes on your scalp while the olive oil will moisturize it and leave your hair looking shiny and springy again.


Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil Come back from vacation broke but in need of urgent hair repairs? Can't afford to buy deep conditioner? Fear not, the can of coconut oil you keep at the back of the kitchen cupboard can help. Fatty acids in coconut oil are ideal for scalp and hair and, let's face it, generations of Polynesians and Asian women have shown us how gorgeous hair can look when coconut oil is used as a beauty product instead of an ingredient for curries. Melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a cup that you have warmed in a bowl of hot water. Massage this melted warm oil into your hair and scalp. Use a comb to distribute evenly. Twist your tresses into a bun, then cover with a carrier bag or shower cap. Leave the coconut oil in for at least one hour, better still, sleep on it overnight. Shampoo to rinse the oil and feel your hair with your fingertips. Aww, nothing beats that silky smoothness!

Don’t you think it’s time to go raid your fridge?

Also, I would just like to add that we're talking about something so acidic it literally wears away the enamel on your teeth. Do you really think something that damaging to your teeth will do anything good for your hair?

@Avyyy, lemon dries out hair and it will not make your hair blonde or make it blonder, but it certainly will make it orange.

Thank you rhiannon, but she's not going to listen. I've commented several times and only gotten a "the Internet says to do it so it's fine" response. She doesn't care if she's spreading false information to people. And @avyy lemon does lighten, but it damages the hair from inside out, and only brings out the red/oranges in hair. Which is impossible to tone without bleaching, and the lemon will continue to lighten your hair every time your in a bright light or in the sun till it's cut off. Lemon is horrid for the hair and people coming in after they used lemon is a hair dressers nightmare. Baking soda is also horrid, as it dries out the hair, throws of the pH balance (which can be restored by diluted ACV), but it opens up the hair shaft and makes it porus, making it more prone to breakage as you scrub your hair with an abrasive ingredient. The moment baking soda hits your hair and scalp, you already have damaged it. Once on a while to get rid of build up is fine as long as you follow up with ACV, but even then, they make clarifying shampoos that are much nicer on the hair and don't dry it out after one use.

@Rhiannon actually lemon DOES work, I use it every week and my hair is beautiful and healthy but I don't know about baking soda

Please, stop recommending lemon and baking soda as beauty products. Neither will bring anything good for your hair or skin. They both just damage hair and skin, they are not good. Stop recommending them.

@rhiannon - don't bother even replying to kailee, she doesn't respond well when you provide information she doesn't like. I stated scientific facts about lots of things and all she does is say that I'm rude and then says something offensive to me, and defends herself about something irrelevant. There's no use, she's just a troll who wants to fight. I just hope girls reading these articles don't just read hers and ruin their skin/hair/whatever. You havent said anything even remotely rude to anyone, or to her especially, but she feels attached because she doesn't like being wrong or she just wants to troll.

@Rhiannon, You should be blocked, your "comments" are defamatory, and borderline cyber bullying.

Neecey could you please look into getting AWS website fixed?! I can't scroll down past six days ago and are articles I was still trying to catch up on.

As a person who spent an entire year swimming in a chlorine pool, and I started out with chemically processed brown hair. I did an intensive search on how to protect my hair from completely dying from the constant chlorine every day. First suggestion is to completely wet your head before getting in a pool. Because your hair is already wet, it won't have to saturate the chlorine when the water hits it. Also, when constantly in and out of the water, rinse it if your pool offers a shower. And yes, I found the baking soda tip and found it to be amazing. It neutralized the chlorine and then I would do a white vinegar rinse before conditioning. Everyone is different and the internet is not gospel. But as for me, I had my hair at chin level when I arrived in my oasis and brown as I described. 12 months later, I had gone without a single haircut (i'm particular about who cuts my hair!!!) so I returned home with white hair (I was a toe head as a child) and my hair had grown past my shoulders. My hair dresser actually complimented me on how well I had taken care of it, considering my circumstances. The proof was in the cut, I only needed less that a half inch cut after a year with no cut!!! All I can suggest to anyone is just try try and try some more. Isn't that how some of the greatest inventions came to be??? We as women should be supporting each other, not beating one another's ideas up!!! Prayers
