Keep your hair looking great by applying a homemade hair protein treatment monthly. (Is my hair OK? image by Frenk_Danielle Kaufmann from Fotolia.com)

Although effective, commercial hair protein treatments are often expensive. By using a few basic ingredients from your kitchen, you can make your own protein treatments without breaking the bank. Protein provided from eggs and other natural ingredients help revive damaged hair and encourage healthy hair growth. Use homemade treatments once a week for a month to bring your hair back to life, and then apply them monthly to keep your hair looking great.
