Oily hair
Make a lemon rinse by mixing ¼ liter (about 1 cup) boiling water with the peels from 2 lemons and steep, covered for 20 minutes. Strain and squeeze out the lemon peels thoroughly. Let the lemon water cool to warm before rinsing.
To make a conditioner containing essential oils, which can help regulate the activity of your oil glands, mix 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar with 2 drops sage, juniper, and lemon oil with 7 ounces warm water. Rinse with it, then rinse again with tap water.
To rid your hair of oil and make it smell wonderful make a vanilla rinse by mixing 3 ½ ounces (just short of 1/2 cup) each of white rum and beer, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and ½ teaspoon vanilla pulp. Massage into your hair. Rinse after 10 minutes and wash your hair thoroughly.
A tea tree oil poultice will reduce oily buildup, to make one mix ¼ cup almond oil with 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 10 drops tea tree oil, comb through wet hair, leave for 30 minutes, rinse, then wash.

Normal hair
To make a henna poultice that will leave your hair with a silky luster, stir together 1 tablespoon neutral henna with 1 egg yolk, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and enough warm water to make a spreadable paste. Massage into washed hair and leave in for 15 minutes, rinse with warm water.
For a healthy scalp and lustrous hair mix 3 drops each of neroli, chamomile, lavender, and sage oil in the palm of your hand and spread through your freshly-washed hair, do not rinse off.
To make a natural hair fortifier, mix 2 cups warm water, 1 teaspoon honey, 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, and 3 drops lemon oil. After shampooing spread through your hair and let it dry, do not rinse out.


Dry, stressed hair
Avocados are an outstanding source of moisture. To make a deep conditioner puree the flesh of 1 avocado and mix with 2 egg yolks and 1 tablespoon molasses. Knead the paste evenly into wet hair and rinse thoroughly after 30 minutes, do this once a week.
Bananas also make a nurturing conditioner. Mix one mashed banana with 1 tablespoon mashed avocado and massage the paste into your hair and scalp. Cover your hair with plastic wrap and a towel, leave on for 20 minutes then rinse hair with warm water and wash with a mild shampoo.
Thyme protects your hair from drying out. To make a thyme rinse pour ¼ liter (about 1 cup) boiling water over 3 tablespoons of thyme. Steep for 10 minutes, strain and cool to lukewarm, and apply with shampoo.
