    Sometimes I rinse my naturally curly hair in the shower with a mix of honey, water, and apple cider vinegar. It really works wonders! Now that I'm home on a snow day today, I thought it would be fun to try something different in the shower today. Mayonnaise? Baking soda? Anyone know of an at-home treatment I can do today to boost moisture or shine? Share your secrets!

    I recently stated using coconut oil. I massage it on my scalp and hair when it is damp and let it sit for several hours. I really like it and it smells great!

    Once I used banana and yogurt.

    It stuck in the grout of the tile, and even after I "thought" I got it all out, my shower started to sprout some yogurt banana fuzz...

    But my hair looked nice! ;)

    I do baking soda scrubs for my scalp and then use a vinegar rinse to seal the cuticle again.

    Mayo or olive oil are supposed to be great for hair!

    Inm130, do you add anything to the baking soda? Or do you just rub it onto a damp scalp?
    I've used an apple cidar vinegar rinse on my hair, but haven't done so in some time.

    bonneb... one of my profs said to put olive oil in your hair when your down washing & conditioning to help keep lice out!!! I'm sure your hair may look a little oily at the end of the day though, but if you keep it up... it may help!!!

    Weirdly enough, I sometimes use eggs! I have long, thick hair so I use about two or three. Get in the shower, and rinse after about three-five minutes (after shampooing). Makes my hair glossy!

    I make a paste in a cup. I put about 1/4 cup in, add a little water until it becomes thick. I then just massage it in. I use this about once a month since I don't shampoo my hair.

    After I use the baking soda, I rinse it with water then add in the vinegar. I let that set a minute and then rinse and then condition.

    I also put my vinegar water in a squirt bottle. I use a condiment bottle I got at the dollar store. Too much vinegar in the eyes for me!
