Home remedies for dry damaged hair

Home remedies for dry, damaged hair can easily be made right in your kitchen. Stop wasting your money on high end conditioning products. Just open up the refrigerator and give your hair the moisturising treatment it needs. Strengthen, soften and moisturise your hair using products you already have.


Spread 1/2 cup of full fat mayonnaise through your hair, making sure to cover from root to end as you would a conditioner. Cover your hair with a towel and allow the mayonnaise to sit and moisturise your hair for approximately 15 minutes. Then rinse and shampoo as normal.

Cocoa Butter

Soften 1/2 cup of cocoa butter in the microwave. Spread it onto your hair, vigorously working the cocoa butter through the ends. Let the cocoa butter sit in your hair for 10 minutes. Then rinse and shampoo.

Egg Yolk

Whip 2 large egg yolks together until they are smooth. Work the egg mixture through your hair until all hair is fully saturated. Allow the egg mixture to sit and strengthen while softening your hair for approximately 20 minutes. Then rinse and shampoo.


Pour 3 tbsp of olive oil, avocado oil or sunflower oil into a zipper bag and heat in a pot of boiling water for 2 minutes. Remove it from the heat and gently work it in until all your hair is drenched. Let the moisturising oil sit in your hair for 10 minutes. Then shampoo as normal.


Mix together 354ml of beer and several drops of your favourite essential oil. Use this daily as a final rinse after shampooing to add protein to your hair.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is moisturising for hair and helps to promote new hair growth. Rinse your hair with 1/2 cup of pure Aloe Vera juice after shampooing.


Vinegar helps to break down build up and serves to regulate the pH level in your hair. Rinse daily with a mix of vinegar and scented oil to help regulate the pH of your hair and remove excess mineral deposits from styling products.
