5. Avocado, Banana and Yogurt Hair Treatment

The avocados and bananas are back. Mix ½ of a banana, a tablespoon on plain yogurt, and ¼ of an avocado and coat your hair and rinse after 20 minutes. Bananas contain many vitamins and help soften your hair while avocados have fatty acids, vitamins, and nutrients to moisturize your hair. You can always eat the leftover banana and yogurt while you let the hair treatment set!

6. Beer Hair Treatment

Beer is good for more than chugging and marinating with steak; it’s a great clarifying and detangling treatment for dry hair. In fact, beer is an essential ingredient in many of the best hair treatments for damaged hair. The protein in beer (from the hops and barley) helps to moisturize, enhance shine and strengthen your hair. Around once a week, shampoo your hair as usual then pour a bottle of beer through your hair, massage, then rinse. Ta da! Soft and shiny hair will be yours.
