Use Avocado to Add Shine

If you have extra avocados sitting on your counter use them before they become too ripe. Simply mashed the avocado and apply it from mid-shaft to the ends. Let it sit for 20 minutes and follow with your usual hair cleanse. After you get out from the shower you'll be greeted with super-shiny hair.

Ditch the expensive hair oils. All you need to do is rub a few drops of coconut oil to the ends to calm split ends.

Use Apple Cider Vinegar to Remove Buildup

Rinse your hair monthly with apple cider vinegar to remove residue. Continuous use will improve hair shine and volume. Remember to rinse thoroughly or you'll smell like salad!

I'm wanting to try coconut oil for my split ends, would i just put a little on each split end and leave it, or should I shampoo my hair afterwards? would it be best when i haven't washed it for a day or should i shampoo it, wait for it to dry and then use the coconut oil? this article is very helpful! Thanks in advance to anyone offering advice!
