Coconut oil is my personal favorite because it smells so good and it is also great for your skin. I did have to order it over the Internet, but it was not expensive at all. I got mine here.
So, here are the two hair masks that I came up with, but you can really use these few ingredients in any way you want. No combination of them is going to be bad for your hair.
Avocado Mask (Looks and smells horrible, but works great!)
1 very ripe avocado
2 tsp of honey
1 Tbs olive oil
Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth and apply to slightly damp hair. Leave on for 30 min and shampoo as usual. (This might be a good time for lather, rinse, and repeat)
1 very ripe banana
2 tsp honey
2 Tbs coconut oil
2-3 drops orange oil- optional
Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth and apply to slightly damp hair. Leave in for 30 minutes and shampoo as usual. (I would again recommend shampooing twice as you don't want food particles drying in your hair)
Those were my two favorites, but you could also whip up a few eggs as a straight protein treatment. You could soften a chunk of coconut oil and apply that directly to your hair for moisture or add just the honey for shine.
Have fun experimenting with these. I sure did.
