Deep-conditioning salon treatments can be heavenly. There's just something about having someone else slather your hair with flowery goodness, massage it in and rinse it out.

But there's also something about doing it yourself for less money. The truth is, home remedies made from ingredients like avocado, olive oil and coconut oil condition hair wonderfully, and there's even some evidence the latter two can make it stronger.

So if the indulgence isn't what's drawing you to your stylist for expensive treatments (or products), consider looking in your kitchen pantry. The results can be just as fabulous.
