This is a very good recipe for dry, brittle hair.

In blender combine 1 Egg and 2 tablsp. of Apple Cider Vinegar.
While blender is running on med. high add 1 cup of Safflower oil slowly but steady to the Egg and Vinegar Mix.
This will look almost like Mayonaise..apply to wet hair, cover hair with plastic wrap and then a towel and leave on for about 30 minutes. Wash hair with a mild shampoo Depending on the lenght of your hair it gives you 1-2 applications. If you keep it in Fridge, it will keep there for one week, take out about 2 hrs before using.

The Vinegar will remove buildup and give shine to hair the egg will nourish and the oil will moisturize.

Now for the most important part...
add Black Currant oil to your diet..500 mg twice a day.
Results will not be immediate...you need to wait about 6-8 weeks
Once you see an improvement cut dose in half and stay on this dose indefinitely.
Black Currant oil is a natural source of GLA[Gamma-linolenic acid] it promotes healthy skin, nails and hair...
GLA also is a natural anti inflammatory agent that is very effective without the side effects that are present with anti inflammatory drugs.

I've been using a great herbal shampoo with rose hips, Vitamin E, and jojoba. It's made my normally dry and frizzy hair very full, smooth, and shiny. I can recommend the specific brand if you want, but I've found that any herbal shampoo with all of these ingredients work well, it's just a matter of finding the cheapest one. I've also used an avocado paste to treat my hair when I used to color it, and that seemed to work well. I'd mash up avocados, add some eggs, put it on my hair, and wrap it in saran wrap for about an hour.
