BC (before children) I applied a home conditioning treatment each week while cleaning the house.  Nothing has worked so well as this, but I have to warn you, it is gross and time consuming.  This has been handed down from my grandmother who used it all her life and has beautiful hair at 8- yrs old!

For short hair, mix
1 egg yolk
1 spoon of Cognac (just buy a cheap brand)
1 spoon of castor oil (may use olive oil, but castor is better)
 
Rub into hair paying special attention to scalp and ends. Cover with a shower cap and a warm towel (you can microwave a damp towel)  and leave on for at least 30 minutes - 1 hour, the longer the better.  Wash, wash, wash......it will take some time to get it out.  Repeat weekly, you should have no split ends and noticeably healthier, stronger hair within a month.'
 
My hair is longer so I use 4x times as much.
 
I got my hair fried with a perm/bleach combo and this thing saved my hair.

I think I'll give it a try as well.  I've been very open for lots of stuff that can help with your body & hair, treatments and hair styling techniques (tried long/short hair, (semi-)permanent coloring, currently perming - and I love it) and I'm willing to give this a try as well...
But like sillknsilver mentioned, is it tablespoon or teaspoon measures?

I have a book that has a very similar recipe and it calls for tablespoons.
 
If you try it, let us know how it works for you.
 
Good luck!  Wink
