Colombia: Avocado Hair Mask

Some Colombian grandmothers pass on their recipe for chicken soup, but stylist Lutz Karpf learned this instead: Combine two egg whites with half of a mashed-up avocado; leave it in hair for 15 minutes, then wash and condition. It’s a fast and inexpensive natural remedy that leaves hair super-smooth.

Brazil: Coconut Hair Cocktail

Forget caipirinhas. Girls from Ipanema get a buzz from this shine-enhancing mixture. “Once a week, apply a cocoa butter treatment mask, let it sit for a half hour, then rinse it out with coconut water,” says pro Marco Antonio De Biaggi of São Paulo. “The combination leaves hair incredibly soft and moisturized, it’s a trick of many Brazilian women.”

Argentina: Hydrate with Aloe Vera

It’s all about length, says hair stylist Leonardo Rocco, who was born northwest of Buenos Aires. “Women in Argentina associate long hair with sensuality and glamour.” To help keep long strands in shape, he recommends applying aloe vera directly to your scalp or adding it to your usual shampoo.
