To give your hair a great shine and help remove soap build up:

Slightly diluted vinegar is fantastic for shine. The easiest way to apply vinegar is in a spray bottle before shower. Then rinse out thoroughly.

Add a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice to your rinse water.

Applying the milk to your hair and then rinsing with cool water. Next, rub an ice cube along the length of your strands, then comb.

Add a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to your rinse water.

Mash up an avocado with a tablespoon of olive oil and a tsp of baking powder. Mix until well combined and then work the mixture through your hair and then wash out.

Ingrdients: 2 cups distilled water, 1/3 cup chopped fresh rosemary leaves - In small saucepan combine ingredients and bring to boil. Continue to boil 5 minutes. Let cool, then pour into spray bottle. Keep refrigerated and mist on hair to add shine, tone scalp, or invigorate skin.

Mayonnaise is a great conditioner for dry hair. Depending on the length of your hair, apply approximately 1/2 cup of mayonnaise to your dry hair. Work into hair really well and then cover your hair with a plastic bag, allowing to set for about 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and then shampoo as usual.

Great hair home remedy shiny

  • 1 oz. oil of Rosemary
  • 1/8 oz. oil of Lavender
Enough for about 6 months of use. Simply mix the two oils together and store in the dark or in a small amber or light-proof bottle. Put a few drops of the oil on your palm, brush your palm against your hairbrush and then brush your hair.
Stir 1 teaspoon honey into 4 cups (1 quart) warm water. After shampooing, pour mixture through hair. Do not rinse out. Dry as normal.

A refreshing spray that adds shine to hair and is especially good for brunettes; the rosemary brings out natural highlights in dark hair much the way chamomile does for blonde locks. It can also be used to rejuvenate tired skin.

Healthy Hair shiny tip

Avoid washing your hair too often in warm water. Heat stimulates the scalp which encourages the production of oil. A cooler shower will help to control greasy hair.

If you colour your hair, be sure to use products formulated for colour treated hair. They won't strip the colour from your hair, leaving it dull and lifeless.
