DIY Healthy + Shiny Hair Remedies

Did you know that you can use eggs, beer, vinegar, avocados and honey to make your hair super shiny (not all together, though. Yuck). Use these amahhhhzing DIY treatments tonight to make people stare tomorrow.


Feeling creative in the kitchen? This avocado and honey recipe will get your kitchen messy and your hair gorge. The combination of avocado, which contains unsaturated oils to moisturize, and honey, a moisture retainer will definitely make your locks love you. Mix one medium avocado with two tablespoons of honey until completely combined. Then work the mix through your hair from root to tip. Rinse out and shampoo and condition as normal.

olive oil

Olive oil is a perfect replacement for a treatment you would spend extra cash on at the drugstore. Use what you have by microwaving a half cup of olive oil and working it through your hair from root to tip. Wrap your hair in a towel and let it sit for 30 minutes. Since the oil is extremely moisturizing, it will make your hair healthy and glowing.


Since huevos they're packed with protein (something your hair is made out of), this refrigerator staple will make your hair both shiny and strong. Pre-shower, whisk an egg together and work the goo through your hair. Warning: this is not pretty. Wrap your hair in a warm towel and stay as an egg head for 10 minutes. Then shampoo and condition as normal.


If you have the unfortunate experience of dandruff, you'll love this pantry beauty trick. The next time you shower, pour apple cider vinegar over your head, then shampoo as usual. The acidity of the vinegar rises away the buildup of product on your hair and (BONUS) vinegar's fungus fighting power prevents dandruff.


Like apple cider vinegar, Beer's acidity removes the buildup from products that make your hair dull. Also, the yeast and hops in brew pumps up the volume of your hair's cuticle. Now you have another reason to cheer for beer.
