Remove the skins from several tomatoes. Puree them in a food processor until smooth.
Apply the pureed tomatoes to the hair evenly. Leave the mask in the hair for 20 minutes. Rinse out with cool water. The acidity in the tomatoes evens out the pH of the hair, which cuts down on the chemical smell.
At least once a week, apply a deep conditioning treatment to the hair. Leave it on for a minimum of five minutes. If hair is brittle and showing signs of breakage, choose a deep conditioner with protein in it. If hair is dry and flyaway, choose a deep moisturizer.
Unless choosing to get all of the chemically-treated hair cut off at once, get regular trims during the growing-out phase. Get a minimum of 1/4 of an inch cut off every four to six weeks.
