    Hi, great article there. Did not know we can use eggs and beers as a natural remedy too! Can we just use olive oil as a single component instead of mixing with eggs? Lets say i have oily scalp but also dry hair can i still apply these methods as some of the products are oily in nature.Thank you!

      Hi Jacob,

      Try the apple cider vinegar rinse weekly to balance out your oily scalp. Make sure you massage it right to the roots and all the way to the ends. Do this a couple of times a week for 2 weeks, then back to once weekly for maintenance. You can then start adding more of a moisturising treatment such as the avocado or aloe vera.

      Best of luck, let me know if that helps!

      Cheers, Kris

    Hi there,

    I think using coconut oil on my hair would appeal to me the most. Is coconut oil for cooking suitable or only organic coconut oil which are the more expensive ones?

    I’m not sure that I’ll enjoy having eggs on my hair though as there will be a raw eggy smell and I might accidentally cook it.

    Thanks for sharing these tips!

      Hi yvonne, I use organic coconut oil for cooking too so I use the same stuff for my hair. I know what you mean about the egg smell, but I have never noticed it too badly maybe due to the fact it is only the whites, and they dont smell so eggy.

      Let me know if you end up giving it a go!

      Cheers, Kris
