Oily Hair  

 Egg, lemon & coconut milk  

Oily hair can be a real pain, maybe your arch nemesis but a hair mask can help. Eggs will provide extra shine to your hair. They are rich in vitamins and proteins.  Lemons are great for absorbing excess oil built up on the scalp. Here is a great hair mask for my ladies with a little extra moisture.
