Sun, wind, weather – pretty much life takes its toll on our hair. Making it dry, brittle and dull. We had a situation where I really wanted to find a good conditioner to repair my daughter’s severely damaged hair, but the type I could find just didn’t seem to work.
It began when she had her hair colored by a non-professional. Adding to that, she had severe damage due to climate and the conditions where she had been living.
So, we had a professional re-color her hair who also gave her hair a much needed trim, her hair was much better; yet still very dry and dull.
After some searching I found this home remedy on-line and after just 2 treatments, it looked FABULOUS! I wish I had kept the link to this recipe, and I apologize to the original source, but a huge thank you for coming up with it. It works wonderfully! You really need to try this.
The ingredients are probably all in your house right now and it’s so easy and quick to put together. We couldn’t believe the difference after one time, and after two times – WOW! I hope your hair loves this too:)

2 Tbl. olive oil
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
In a bowl combine the ingredients and mix well.
To dry hair, generously apply one third to one half of the mixture
Massage into the hair, paying special attention to dry, split ends.
Leave as is, or put on a shower cap.
- Allow this mixture to sit in your hair for 20-30 minutes.
Wash as normal.
- Moisture is restored to the hair by the mayonnaise and olive oil.
- The apple cider vinegar gives shine.
- If long hair, this mixture will provide enough to apply probably two times.
Pour any extra homemade conditioner into a baggie or container and store in the refrigerator, then apply again 4-6 days later.
Look how great her hair looks after this treatment!
