  1. When I first glanced at it, it looked like recipes and I almost pulled out my recipe book to write them down.
    I’ve tried only the first one before.
    Is vinegar good for the hair? I hear it is a very controversial ingredient for using on the hair.

  2. I have also tried the first one only.. would love to try the second one if eggs can be replaced with some other ingredient. Is it mandatory to use eggs for the second tips or they can be totally omitted?

  7. I’ve tried almost all of them except the avocado one…can avocado be replaced for something else? The banana mix works wonders but it can be a pain to remove :P My favourite however is shampooing my hair with overnight soaked methi seeds which give a nice lather. My hair feels instantly smooth and incredibly soft. :)
