Revive Your Hair With Two Homemade Conditioners I'm Nuts About!


This first one I'm sharing  is a fantastic and easy treatment to help remedy your dull and brittle hair without much effort.  The second is a deeper treatment that you can apply and wear all day when you're alone or overnight when you do not have anyone sleeping beside you.

Get a container and mix up 1/4 cup of olive oil with the juice of one whole lemon and 2 tablespoons of coarse salt.  Apply this while you take your warm shower or linger in the tub soaking with your bubbles for at least ten minutes. 

Rinse and then style your hair as you usually do.  This will give you back your manageability and shine.

The second treatment is for when your hair is brittle enough to crack when you rub the strands together.  When this happens, you need to take desperate measures with the plastic wrap and  mayonnaise treatment.  

You may laugh, but applying some healthy gobs of mayo to your freshly washed hair, then wrapping plastic wrap, followed by a scarf to wear as long as possible, does help soften and improve problem hair.  

Another interesting way to shorten up the mayo-plastic wrap treatment is to grab your blow dryer and warm up your head so that mayo penetrates the hair thoroughly.  

As I also mentioned, you can go to bed wearing your salad smelling plastic helmet wrapped head, only if you are sleeping alone.   Overnight treatment in this fashion I only recommend if hubby is away or you will risk alienating him.

Excellent! these are both really easy to do, with simple ingredients, so I might actually do them.
I was surprised that salt is good for your hair.
