The Weirdest Hair-Treatment Ingredients

Illustrated by Anna Sudit.
Honey, avocado, beer, aspirin, sugar: What do these things have in common, aside from the fact that you probably have them stocked away somewhere in your house? Well, they also happen to be pretty nifty (and kind of bizarre) ingredients for prettifying your hair. 

That's right. The items you usually have on hand in your kitchen or medicine cabinet can help your hair's health. So, we scoured the Internet to bring you some of the best recipes for concoctions you can whip up and try out tonight. Bananas as a hair mask? Genius. Cocoa powder to add a color boost to brown hair? Who knew? These treatments are not only all-natural but super-affordable, so say ta-ta to that $40 deep conditioner.
