The changing of the seasons can be absolutely awful for your hair, but don’t worry! “The Real” has some tried and true, natural fixes that you’re going to love for common hair issues.

These recipes for homemade hair treatments feature only natural ingredients that you can pick up in almost any grocery store.

Hair Detangler

Everyone has had to deal with an unruly hair day now and again, and it can be especially bad when the products you use are part of the problem. Harsh chemicals can sometimes be the culprit when it comes to tangles in your hair. Instead, go with this recipe:

1 cup beer
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

• Mix beer and apple cider vinegar in a bowl.
• Massage mixture into hair.
• Let it sit for five minutes, then rinse with warm water.

Homemade Shine Solution

This recipe for an all-natural, homemade shine solution was created to give your hair a luster and sheen you’ll love without exposing your tender locks to chemicals that can further damage your hair and make it look even duller.

2 whisked egg whites
2 bananas
2 tbsp. yogurt
2 tbsp. oil
2 tbsp. honey

• Massage into hair.
• Put on a shower cap and let mixture sit for 30 minutes.
• Then, rinse.
