  1. 1

    Do an at-home treatment to make your hair shiny. Mix the juice from half a lemon with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of water. Apply the mixture to hair that has just been shampooed as normal, then rinse it out right away. You should notice that your hair is shiny when it dries. Do not leave the mixture in too long because the acid in the lemon juice may affect your hair's colouring.

  2. 2

    Mix a small avocado with one egg yolk to make your own conditioner at home. Apply it to the hair from the roots to the ends and let it sit for about 15 minutes. When it is done, wash hair with shampoo and conditioner as normal. says, "This is a great moisturising mask for your hair."

  3. 3

    Give yourself highlights at home with lemon juice. If you want highlights, but don't have the money to get them done at a salon, try using lemon juice and the sun. Put some lemon juice on a few strips of your hair and then go out into the sun. The acidity of the juice along with the sun will lighten the hair a shade or two lighter then your hair colour. If you have dark brown hair, expect light brown to auburn highlights.

  4. 4

    Use a coloured powdered drink mix to temporarily dye your hair a cool colour. Mix two packs of powdered drink mix in any colour that you choose with some conditioner to form a paste. Apply the mixture to your hair. Wrap your head in cling film and leave it for at least an hour to as long as overnight. Shampoo and condition hair normally. The longer you leave it, the darker the colour will be. If you have light hair, expect a more dramatic change than someone with dark hair would have. The colour will fade with every wash and will likely be all gone after two or three shampoos.

  5. 5

    Find pictures of cool hairstyles in magazines. Use gel and other hair products to try and re-create these looks at home. Visit a hair salon for a more permanent change.

Tips and warnings

  • Consult a hair stylist before doing anything dramatic to your hair.
  • When doing hair treatments at home, it is best to do them only once a week at most. Doing them too much may damage hair, and damaged hair is not cool!
