Egg Head?


Ran out of shampoo?
Beat two fresh eggs in a cup of warm water. Massage the mixture through your hair. Leave on for ten to fifteen minutes then rinse with tepid water.
Warning: Don't use hot water to rinse hair or you'll end up with scrambled egg on your hair!

Pritt Stick


I recommend Pritt stick for those unwanted curls. Rinse hair with warm water to remove.

Banana


For a brilliant deep conditioning treatment liquidize a banana, add some wheatgerm oil, and a few drops of aromatherapy oil (to counteract the banana smell) spread through middle to end of hair lengths and leave for a while. Wash and condition hair as normal after, and Voila! silky soft tresses.

Coke


Yes, coke! Pour a can of Coke (Sprite if you are blonde) into a spray bottle with some water then mist onto damp hair. This creates a very sexy texture.

Nivea


Apply to damp hair before sculpting creating a really smooth style and texture for a sophisticated look.

Asprin


Problem with dandruff? Dissolve some Aspirin in a dandruff shampoo and the problem will clear up fast.

Fabric Softner


If you run out of conditioner - using fabric softner will do the trick!

Cling Film


Apply a rinse out conditioner to freshly washed hair - wrap head in cling film and leave for 20 mins. Hey presto - a salon style conditioning for FREE!

If your blonde and have greasy hair and don't have time to wash is lightly sprinkle your hair with talcum powder. It'll stop your hair looking greasy instantly! but remember to wash it out!

For dehydrated hair....

Blend an egg, a tablespoon of olive oil and a quarter oif cucumber in a food mixer. Cover your hair with the mixture and leave for ten minutes. Rinse with luke warm water and you will be left with softer silkier hair!

Olive Oil


To tame curly hair, use just a dime size(depending on hair length) of olive oil and mix it with your favorite styling product. Voila!! Tamed curly hair

Lemon


For all those blondes whose hair has turned kharki green due to chlorine in a swimming pool - use a lemon to neutralise the chlorine and restore your natural blonde colour.
