During the Winter and sometimes during the summer, I have really dry hair, but I have found that this remedy really works. It keeps my hair shiny and soft.
What you need: Half of a ripe peeled avocado, one egg and two tablespoons of wheat germ oil. (You can also substitute wheat germ oil for olive or castor oil.)
Making it: In a small bowl, mash the avocado until it's smooth. Then add the egg and oil and blend well.
Using it: Massage the mixture to dry hair, starting from the ends up. Once you've applied it all, cover your head with a shower cap or small plastic bag, grab a book and set the timer for 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and shampoo out. Note: You can increase the conditioning benefits by wrapping a warm, moist towel around your head while you wait.
How often to use it: For dry and damaged hair, once a week will help get it back on track. I use it once a week during the summer and during the winter when my hair takes the most damage. I hope this helps :)
