Olive oil. Irons prefers this to the often-recommended mayonnaise for conditioning hair. Heat some extra virgin olive oil in the microwave for 10 seconds and apply to DRY hair.
Leave it on for about 10 minutes, then shampoo (forgetting that last step will leave you lank and smelling like a salad).
Flat beer. Be sure to use beer that has lost its zing, or else heat fresh beer and allow it to cool. Wash your hair, pour it on, and comb.
“I guarantee it will not smell after it dries,” Irons says.
Baby food. Brace yourself — strained liver! Wash hair and apply a tablespoon of lemon juice mixed with 2 ounces of strained liver.
Wrap your head in a towel or wrap with plastic and sit under a warm dryer for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly (liver+hair=obvious).
Vinegar. This is a marvelous rinse, according to Baker. Cider vinegar is good for brunettes, white vinegar for blondes.
Four tablespoons in three glasses of warm water. Then use lots of cool water to remove the salady smell.
Lemons are a blonde’s best friend! The juice of two lemons in two glasses of lukewarm water should do it. If your hair does not tend to be dry, you can skip the rinse and let the sun add some highlights.

something that works just oh so great is coconut oil. it’s not as “greasy” as olive oil or mayo. also a “tonic” for your hair when it’s “sick” is pretty simple also..
take 2 cups of water bring to a boil. add 1 cup fresh rosemary and let steep until it’s cold. then rinse your hair after you shampoo.
also pay attention the scalp. it helps fight dandruff and just flakes. it can be used for any hair color but it brings a special oomph to brunettes.
