Tomatoes for Shinier Hair

Yep, you heard that right. Tomatoes help make your hair shinier, restore hair color, and balance your hair's pH.
best kept secrets: tomato juice, tomatoes, tomato for hair, shiny hair, healthy hair, yes to tomato

As a child I remember my mom used to cut a tomato in half and then take individual strands of my hair and rub the tomato on them from root to tip. She'd leave it on for an hour or so and then send me to shower. At school all my teachers would remark on how healthy and shiny my hair looked.

For those of you with light colored hair, tomato juice helps remove the chlorine green from all that summer swimming!

But if you don't feel like rubbing tomato juice all over your hair, Yes to Tomato has a line of various tomato based products, including shampoo and conditioner (you can find them here on ASOS).

What do you think? Will you try tomato on your hair?


  1. Oh so cool! Thanks for sharing! Good to know! :)

  2. This is interesting! I didn't know it would make my hair shinier. I normally just cold rinse before getting out, but if I ever become daring I will try this!

  3. I have an extreme hatred for Tomatoes, I could never do this! Haha. I've heard lots of different food is good for hair, but I've never tried anything other than Shampoo/Conditioner - I'm not so adventurous!
