Whoa, This Houseplant Can Give You Shinier Hair

Gah, the cold weather is making your hair look more than a little bit dull. Instead of shelling out $40 to $50 at the salon for a revitalizing hair mask, try this trick.

What you need: An aloe plant (you know, like the one you already have on your kitchen countertop).

What you do: Just break off a leaf. Hop into the shower and gently massage the gel into your hair after you shampoo. Let it sit for about five minutes (while you, say, shave your legs) and then rinse.

Why it works: The moisturizing properties in the plant will help reinvigorate and majorly hydrate dry strands. The result? Glossy hair for days.
