Yogurt or sour cream may be used for dull hair that lacks shine and luster. When hair is exposed to the elements, pollution, chemicals, or even other factors, the hair is stripped of its moisture.
This leads to split ends and hair breakages. By applying yogurt, the lactic acid present in the curd will remove the dirt accumulated in the individual hair strands, which will have a thorough cleansing effect for the entire hair and scalp.
Yogurt also contains milk fat which acts as a moisturizer and provides the necessary protein treatment for the hair.
To perform the protein treatment, apply a half cup of yogurt to wet hair. Leave the yogurt on for about 30 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. You should also shampoo your hair for a deep cleanse, and you can try this treatment every week.
Mayonnaise is another kitchen ingredient that is rich in fats and proteins that can help in hair growth and repair. Due to its natural egg content, mayonnaise is an excellent protein treatment for natural hair.
To apply mayonnaise on your hair, simply take a cupful of mayonnaise, or as required, and apply on to your hair. Make sure that you cover your entire scalp and coat your hair with a thick serving so that each strand is covered. Take a towel, dip it in warm water then wrap it around your hair and leave it on for 20 minutes. Remove the towel and rinse your hair with a mild shampoo. It is advised to follow this treatment once every month.

Avocado fruits contain an amazing compilation of fats, proteins, vitamins, and natural oils that are light in texture and offer great health benefits for hair.

You can use avocados in two different ways. In the first method, you should smash up an avocado and reduce it into pulp form to massage deeply into your hair and scalp. Leave the pulp on for about 15 minutes and if possible, cover your hair with a warm towel. After 15 minutes, remove the towel and rinse off with a mild shampoo.
In the second method, you can mix avocado with other kitchen ingredients such as egg, olive oil, or yogurt and mix them together into a paste form before applying it on to your hair. This will also work wonders for your hair, and will act as an amazing homemade protein treatment.
