Forget that drug store beauty run. Everything you need to restock your beauty closet may already be sitting in your kitchen cupboards. Here are a few items you can use to feed your hair care routine and beautify your tresses, courtesy of AOL’s Black Voices.

Crave extra sheen? Try these pantry staples:
-    Honey: Add a tablespoon to your conditioner; let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse.
-    Apple cider vinegar: After shampooing, rinse hair with a mixture of 1 cup water and ¼ cup apple cider vinegar. The vinegar eliminates residue and boosts hair shine.
-    Baking soda: Add a teaspoon to your shampoo to remove hair residue and get those locks shining.
-    Molasses: Believe it or not, this goopy stuff both shines and moisturizes hair. Apply ¼ cup of molasses to wet, unwashed hair and then shampoo out.

Locks parched? Try this thirst-quencher:
-    Avocado: Peel and mash a ripe one. Then apply to washed or unwashed hair; rinse thoroughly.

Hair damaged? Heal hurting tresses with these remedies:
-    Beer: After shampooing, pour warm, flat beer through your hair; rinse thoroughly.  The protein from the malt and hops helps repair damaged strands.
-    Coconut oil: Warm a ¼ cup of coconut oil. Next, apply directly to scalp and hair. Let sit for 30 minutes; shampoo out. The oil relieves a dry and itchy scalp.
-    Egg: Mix one egg with 2 cups of conditioner for an all-natural strengthener.  Shampoo then condition as usual.
-    Mayonnaise: Strengthen weak hair with ½ cup of all-natural mayo applied to hair.  Rinse thoroughly.
-    Olive oil: Increase the hair’s elasticity with this “liquid gold.” Apply oil as a pre-shampoo treatment or add to conditioners.

Want to make your own beauty products? Try these alternatives to store-bought:
-    Rollers: Use scrap fabric to make your own hair curlers. Place fabric strip in the center of a section of hair and roll up corkscrew-fashion until you reach the top of your head. Tie ends. Untie in the morning for fresh, bouncy curls.
-    Plastic caps: Who needs to buy these when there’s Saran wrap! For a really deep conditioning treatment, Black Voices suggests simply tearing a sheet of the wrap off the roll and covering hair after applying conditioner. Just want a roller set? Cover your hair with the Saran wrap sheet; wait 10 to 20 minutes. Voila! Fabulously soft curls and waves.
