But first let us know the causes of dry hair. First is, dry hair can be caused by environmental conditions like overexposure to the sun. When we take a bath, too much chlorine on the water can also make our hair dry.

Dry hair actually lacks the moisture and oil that it needs to be healthy. Dry hair can be usually irritating and it can also be a symptom of some health problems like malnutrition. A malnourished person does not take the needed nutrients to have healthy hair, it can also be a sign of omega- 3 deficiency, anorexia or self- starving stops a person from having a shiny and luminous hair, hypothyroidism (the body produces too little of the thyroid hormone and hyperparathyroidism. Having too little parathyroid hormone which causes blood levels of calcium to fall and phosphorus to rise).

1. Mayo Magic- Mayo is not just important in making sandwiches. It can also be good for the hair. You need to heat up one cup of mayo, wait for it to become oily and apply to your unwashed hair. You need to cover your hair with a plastic until 15 minutes is over. Finally, rinse your hair and apply shampoo carefully.


2. Egg goes first- Split the yolk and the egg white and beat the egg white carefully. Add a tablespoon of water to the yolk and combine until it becomes smooth. Mix the egg white and the yolk. Wet you hair using warm water, get rid of the extra moisture and apply the mixture to your scalp. Rinse with cool water. Do this repeatedly. Keep on rinsing until no egg is left behind.

3. Fruits- Fruits can also be useful. Mash a rotten avocado and an over- ripe banana. Apply to your hair until 15 minutes. Then wash.


4. Cold beer- Beer is not only for the belly. Put a little amount of beer in a plump bottle. Before you go style your hair, spray some on it.
