Prom's coming up and the first thing to fantastic hair is getting it smooth, shiny and healthy way in advance. You don't need to spend big bucks at the salon either. You can do it yourself with ingredients straight from your mom's pantry! No matter what your pre-prom hair dilemma, we have the recipe to fix it — stat!

Super Shine: Caffeine can intensify your dark locks and make it really stand out! Just brew a pot of non-flavored coffee or strong black tea and soak your hair in it. Comb through, cover your head with a plastic shower cap, and sit for 20-30 minutes. Rinse it out, shampoo and rinse again with cold water to give it super shine!

No More Frizz: Mix a banana, ¼ cantaloupe, two tbsp of yogurt, and one tbsp of olive oil together in a blender. Apply the mixture to damp, unwashed hair and comb through all the way. Let it sit for 20 minutes and then rinse it out. Shampoo and condition your hair. You'll notice your hair will be way smoother when you style it for prom!

Super Strong Ends: Sick of split ends? An avocado mask can help moisturize and repair destroyed hair. Mix together one mashed avocado, ¼ cup of honey and one can of coconut milk in a bowl. Put it on dry hair, especially over your split ends. Cover with a shower cap and blast the hairdryer over it for five minutes. Let you the mask sit for an additional 30 minutes. Rinse well, but don't shampoo! Voila — healthier hair in no time!

Bye Bye Dandruff: Mix ½ cup of water and ½ cup of white vinegar. Put it directly on your scalp and then start shampooing. We recommend doing this twice a week for flake-free locks!

Not only will this cut down your prom budget, but also, it's a natural way to have healthy, beautiful hair all year round!

Do you have any other home recipes to recommend for an amazing mane?
