Antonio Prieto, a hair care guru, shares these home remedies with us:

  • Oily Hair: Boil two tablespoons of mint in 1 1/2 glasses of water for 20 minutes. Strain the mixture and mix it with your regular shampoo. Using the mint mixture on alternatiev days absorbs the excess oil in your hair!
  • Damaged & Dry Hair: Apply a paste of egg yolk and water. Leave it in for 10 to 15 mintuse and rinse of with cool water.
  • Frizzy Hair: Tame it by rubbing coconut oil into your hands and apply sparingly into your hair.

  • Build-up: Massage a small amount of olive oil into the roots of dry hair before shampooing. Olive oil is also great for helping coarse hair. Apply from the mid-lengths to the ends of your hair for great control and moisture.
  • Dull Hair: Rinse your hair with lemon juice to bring lfie and shine back into your hair. Not recommended for color-treated hair, so instead use a cold water rinse after shampooing for great shine!
  • Everyone: A healthy diet consisting of veggies, fruits, nuts, grians, and lots of water helps you get healthy hair!
