3 surprising items that could give you healthy hair on a budget


Mayonnaise conditioners, egg shampoo, and avocado treatments. For years women have been searching for out-of-the-box, natural ingredients to help treat their tresses. We have three surprising items that could give you healthy hair on a budget.

We all want beautiful hair.

"I've done kind of like an egg mixture before," says one woman.

"Olive oil, yeah it does work miracles," says another.

You can try these tips for beauty on a budget. Apple cider vinegar can be used to deep clean and remove buildup. Pour one cup over wet, unwashed hair, then shampoo and condition as usual. Once a week is all you need.

Your favorite beer may also help your locks. It smooths damaged cuticles that make your hair look dull. Just shampoo and condition then pour a bottle of dark stout over your wet hair to add shine and strengthen. Doing this treatment once a month should do the trick.

Finally, replace expensive deep conditioning salon treatments with coconut oil. Heat two teaspoons of coconut oil for a few seconds and massage it into your hair and scalp. Then cover with a shower cap and leave it on overnight. Shampoo twice in the morning and say goodbye to dry parched hair.

For best results, use pure unrefined coconut oil. For extra conditioning you can rub a pea-sized amount of the oil in your hands and concentrate it on the ends of your hair. A one pound jar will usually cost you less than $10.
