Hair remedies...

Remember back in the day when your grandmother had a fix for anything that 'ailed' you? At times, like myself, you probably thought that old-timers (Alzheimer's) was setting it, and didn't think much of her 'cure'. Well, as it turns, she was probably right. Check out some of these remedies that really work on your overworked hair!!

Dry strands?
Try a mixture of egg, olive oil, avocado, mayo, and honey!!


The egg's power is in the yolk...all that nasty cholesterol will help strengthen and thicken your locs.
The olive oil is great for moisture and shine, not just a base for all of Rachael Ray's dishes...well, she uses EVOO!!
The yummy avocado is awesome for deep conditioning, not only adding some texture to your salad...
The mayonnaise is also great for strengthening your hair, not only cream-ifyin' your potato salad.
Last but not least, the honey is great for shining up and smoothing out your tresses!!

If you can sit under a dryer for 15 minutes great, if not, just put a plastic bag on your head and do your toes for about half an hour. You'll love you for it!!

Are you a beach bunny?? Love the water? Salt or chlorine? Well, I am willing to bet the farm that your hair is not a fan of either. Before going onto the beach or jumping into the pool, coat your hair an oil, olive, avocado, whatever...or a nice leave in conditioner... shield it from absorbing the toxins and losing moisture. Be sure to rinse your hair immediately once you are out of the water...

Hope this helps a little...and don't forget the sunscreen for your skin, no matter what your complexion!! African Americans can burn too!!
