YES I've done these experiments myself as a horticulturalist~ Enjoy!!!!

Aloe vera: Thinning hair or just to grow faster

Olive Oil: Restores protien to the hair. ( Small amount because it's hard to rinse & strong smell)

Apple Cider vinager or Beer: Wash in COLD water to get shiny hair effect ( but smells funny)

Avacado: Acts like a conditioner, restoring protiens. ( Use 2 times a week)

Mayo: mix with avacado for conditioning AND rid of lice. Comb with a small toothed comb

Lemon Juice: turns hair blond

Henna: turns hair bluish-black, need special shampoo and can't mix with other dyes.

Honey and sugar: Rid of hair but might develope spider veins.

A little correction:

Henna does not turn hair bluish black, Henna turns hair red. (refer to my avatar! Cheesy)

Indigo turns hair blue/black.

Also, be careful with the lemon juice on hair, it not only lightens the hair but can also be very drying and turn hair into a haystack!

Henna should not be used a remedy of any sorts. It colours your hair which is PERMANENT. (Some people find certain brands fade but a straight, good quality henna usually does no fade at all.) The only way to get the henna red colour out of your hair is to cut it off (or go through some really damaging processes with bleach and hair lightening products which will just kill your hair so it's better off cutting it).

Though henna does do amazing things for your hair. If you would like the benefits of henna I suggest using Cassia which is known as a "clear henna" though cassia and henna are actually two different things. Cassia will give you those nice benefits without colouring your hair.
