Remedy For Dry Hair

Everyday household items hold more use than simply for cooking. So even if you're penny-pinching, there's no reason why you can't whip up some nourishing home remedies to give your crowning glory some much-needed TLC. Here are some great recipes to treat your mane to some wholesome natural goodness.

Hot-Oil Treatment

The ultimate remedy for dry hair. Follow this once to twice a week for softer, shiner hair.

  • ¼ cup of canola/soyabean oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Pour the oil and honey into a bowl and place it in a bowl filled with hot water. Pillow the mixture to warm and then lather it into your hair, concentrating on dry ends. Leave in for about 2 minutes before rinsing off.

Egg Shampoo

This simple recipe will give dry hair a much needed moisture boost.

  • 2 egg yolks

  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice

  • 1 cup warm water

Blend all the ingredients with a whisk till slightly thickened. Massage the concoction into your scalp and hair. Use a shower cap and cover for 5 to 10 minutes to trap heat. Rinse.

High Shine

After conditioning, give your hair a final rinse with cold water to flatten the cuticle and boost shine. Instead of rubbing your hair, pat it dry, as rubbing roughens up the hair cuticles and creates fuzz.

Double Duty

When your hair's gone on the fritz and you're run out of hair products, just take a little moisturiser and run it through your hair to de-frizz and add some shine to your looks.


Keep your hair color from fading with color-enhancing shampoos and conditioners, and remember to protect it with an SPF. The sun is one of the biggest culprits of hair color fading.

The Right Choices

Choosing products that will add zest and life to your hair could make the difference to a great, stunning hair-do. Treatment products like hair masks or deep conditioners can help your hair look its vibrant best.

Holding Up

To create a good look, you don't need to overload your hair with styling products as that makes it more difficult to work with. Instead just prep your hair with light-weight products to add volume and give it a extra hold.

Wave Revivals

Have your curls started to flatten through the course of the day? Restore limp waves by lightly spritzing your hair with water when it starts to lose its shape. Scrunch the ends with your fingers to bring back the waves.

Lather Up!

If you prone to ingrown hairs, you will definitely want to lather up with a shaving cream. This helps to soften your hairs as much as possible, so it is the easiest way to get a close shave.
