curly hair/ straight hair
For curly hair, just braid your hair. For crimped look, do smaller braids, for bigger curls, do big braids. Do this with wet hair before bedtime, and when you pull the braids out in the morning, your hair will be curled. Just spray lightly with hairspray after running finger combing it, and youre good to go.
To have straight hair, just get a paper bag, and an iron. Be sure to put the paper bag over the hair, and use the ironing board. you can straighten the hair by bending over the board, laying hair down, pulling it taut with one hand, placing the paper (or tea towels, even) on top of the hair, and then ironing it out. It might help to blow dry the hair first, as blowdrying tends to relax curls a little. (its all about heat)

To prevent hair loss drink one cup of lettuce and spinach juice in combination daily.
To remove build-up on hair. Mix shanpoo or dish liqiud with baking soda, form a smooth paste. Apply to hair, let set 5 min, then wash as normal, removes hair spray and all dulling residue.
The best thing for your hair? Stop washing it! My best friend does hair and she washes her hair once to twice a week. I know it sounds youcky, especially for me who used to wash my hair nightly. But now I do it every 3 to 4 days. It takes a few days for your head to regulate the oil, but now it is so soft and healty, natrualy. If you use a lot of product like me, just go through the motion of washing your hair, minus the shampoo. Most styling product rinses out with water. I really mean it your hair will thank you!
Comb olive oil through the dry parts of your hair, and towel dry. Put a towel on your pillow, and leave the oil on overnight. Shampoo it out in the morning. This worked well when I had no money for good conditioner. Olive oil is actually great for everything--skin, hair, nails--be careful with extra virgin, though, because it smells weird.
For a great hair treatment/conditioner try 1 egg yoke, 1-2 Tbsp Olive Oil, and 2-3 drops Vitamin E. Combine these, wet hair, mix combination into hair. Let set for 3-5 minutes, feels/looks/smell strange but it works so well. Wash out with shampoo.
TAKE ONE EGG AND COMBINE IT WITH YOU SHAMPOO EACH TIME YOU SHAMPOO. IT'S GOOD BECAUSE THE EGG PROVIDES PROTEIN.
To keep your hair from breaking, pour a bottle of beer into a frying pan. Over a moderate flame, simmer the beer until it is reduced to a thick syrup. Let this cool, and pour into a full bottle of shampoo. Shake thoroughly. Wash your hair with this shampoo as usual. The protein from the beer will keep your hair in good condition.
Soy protein powder or soybean flour strengthens hair, can promote growth/re-growth, and makes it look and feel good overall. Create a smooth paste with the powder/flour and water, apply all over to wet hair, leave it in for a while, then wash it out.
For soft hair use olive oil, it in crease shine too. All you have to do is 5 min before you shower pour a small amount olive oil in your hand and work threw hair, roots to tips.When you shower all you have to do is shampoo, and the oil is gone and your hair is left soft and shiny. (Sunflower or vegetable oil works also)
You could also not shower for a week and let your hair get really greasy, but do you really wanna do that...
