- Olive oil
Olive oil is available in almost any kitchen. It is beneficial when consumed internally, but also when it’s applied on your hair. In only one hour, it can do wonders to your hair.

- Orange juice
Oranges are well known for their high content of vitamin C and antioxidants. The benefits of these upon your hair condition have been acknowledged for a long time, and many shampoos have citric ingredients.

Known for their great amount of fatty acids, flaxseeds are often used in healthy diets. But those fatty acids are beneficial for your hair and scalp, too.

Let it action for about 10 minutes, and then rinse.
- Aloe Vera
The fact that so many beauty care products contain aloe vera is not pure coincidence. The benefits of this herb are remarkable. So, if you have access to it, don’t hesitate to use it. The gel obtained when breaking off a leave can be applied to your scalp and left there for about 30 minutes. After that, just rinse the gel off, without shampooing.

Apply it on your scalp and hair and you can let it act even for an entire night. In the morning, you will have to shampoo and rinse; this treatment may require some effort, but it would definitely be worth it.
