Hi, well I grew up in Los Angeles, California, so I have a lot of natural recipes...these are two of my favorites.

1. pour OLIVE OIL in microwave safe container and WARM it up, do not make it too hot, you are going to put it on your head.
SMEAR and MOOSH into your hair, mainly halfway down and to the end. Completely smooth and then wrap your head with Clear Plastic Wrap (like two long pieces.) Then wrap your head (like a genie wrap when you get out of the shower) with a WARMED towel, from your dryer. Sit around 1/2 hour or longer, whatever, longer the better. Then rinse out VERY, VERY well. At least twice with moisturing Shampoo.

2. Repeat the exact same application as above, but use heapings of Mayonnaise. The fatty kind, gently warm, just so that it is not still cold from the refrig. Good Luck.

I've seen and tried two things recently that helped my hair! Here they are, and I'd recommend both!

1. Similar to the olive oil method already given, but I add shea butter, about equal parts with the olive oil, mixed in my palm. Everything else the same. Boy, does it help!

2. When you wash your hair (and condition as usual, too), do the final rinse with cool water. Or better yet, cool water mixed with apple cider vinegar. You leave it in, it's about 3 parts water to 1 part vinegar. The smell goes away, but the softness and shine are there to stay!!!! Cheap and very effective! Hair loves the mild acidity. My hair, which used to be like straw, is now soft and shiny!

hey guys...here's a method that Julia Roberts uses for her curlies! Melt butter, but make sure it isn't too hot, it IS going on your head! Just smooth it on! use it in place of pomade, like Julia does, cause the oil from the butter hydrates our naturally dry hair & adds shine!
luv ya'll always

Cleopatra's Hair Conditioner
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup olive oil
Prepare the formula the day before you plan to use it. Shake well before applying. In a jar mix honey and olive oil. Cover tightly and shake thoroughly. Before shampoo, massage solution over all of hair briskly. Leave on for 10 minutes (covor your head loosly with a plastic bag if possible). To remove the solution, thouroghly shampoo hair 2 or 3 times. Restores life and vigor to broken, split ends. Also calms excessive frizzies. Recommended for dark hair only.

Conditioners:
Egg Conditioner
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp olive oil
3/4 cup lukewarm water
Beat egg yolk until it is thick and light colored. Slowly drizzle drops of oil into egg, beating well. Slowly add and beat the water into the egg mixture. Transfer mixture to a container. After shampooing, massage all conditioner into hair and leave on for a few minutes before thoroughly rinsing.
Protein Conditioner
Beat 1 egg white until foamy. Add to 5 Tbsps plain natural yogurt. Apply to hair in small sections at a time. Leave in for 15 minutes. Rinse.

Split End Treatments
1) Mix 1 tsp honey with 2 Tbsps olive oil, then beat in 1 egg yolk. Massage on hair in small sections. Wrap head with shower cap for 30 minutes. Rinse and shampoo.

2) Massage hair and scalp with warm avocado or olive oil. Wrap hair securly in a towel. Leave oil on hair about 8 hours or overnight. If left on overnight, put a shower cap over head to avoid staining pillows and bedding. Wash hair, then rinse with a vinegar /water solution.

Hot Oil Treatment
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup boiling water
Place olive oil and boiling water into large glass bottle or jar with a lid. You may need to wrap a towel around the bottle to avoid burning yourself. Shake very well until oil is emulsified. Massage into hair, taking care not to burn your head. Put a shower cap or plastic bag over your hair and wrap your head in a hot towel that has been soaked in hot water then wrung out. Leave mixture on your hair for 1/2 hour, then shampoo as usual

Mayonnaise Conditioner
To recondition the hair, shampoo hair with homemade shampoo or a shampoo from the natural foods store. Rinse and towel dry. Apply regular mayonnaise (not salad dressing) to the hair. Massage in. Let sit for 10-15 minutes, shampoo again lightly and rinse with an apple cider vinegar and water solution.
