Now that fall is here and winter will be here before we know it, you’ll notice major changes in your hair. It can get dry, brittle, and even staticky just within weeks. If you’re having any of these problems, try one of these simple olive oil treatments. Your hair will be back to beautiful in no time.
Make A Leave In Shea Butter Treatment
Try adding a little of this leave in treatment to your wet hair. Please remember that a little goes a loooooong way. Unless you’re going for a “wet and greasy” look.
Whipped Shea Butter Ingredients
1. 4 ounces raw Shea butter.
2. 4 ounces coconut oil.
3. 3 ounces extra virgin olive oil.
4. 2 drops of essential oil of choice.
Pre Shampoo Treatment
Apply some olive oil to your scalp and rub it in with your fingers. Spread throughout hair to ends. Cover with a plastic cap or warm towel for at least thirty minutes before showering. Rinse well and then shampoo and condition as usual.
This treatment will help tame flyaway’s and will smooth hair. Just mix together and leave on for about fifteen to twenty minutes. It will penetrate more if you cover with a plastic cap or towel.
1. 2 whole eggs, whipped.
2. 1 tbsp olive oil.
3. 1 tsp of lime juice.
Leave In Deep Conditioner
If you have just finished washing and conditioning your hair and it still feels dry, just apply this to freshly washed hair then rinse it and style as usual. I prefer to throw my hair up in a bun so that it can really penetrate and then you won’t undo all of the moisturizing by heat styling it right away.
1. 1/2 cup honey.
2. 2 tbsp olive oil.
Warm the mixture in the microwave for thirty seconds and apply to your hair. Rinse out with conditioner.
Aloe Vera, Olive Oil And Water Hydrating Mixture
Add 1 part olive oil to five parts water. Mix in as much Aloe Vera juice as you would like. Pour into spray bottle, shake and spritz on when your hair needs a refresher. Remember to keep refrigerated if you added the Aloe Vera juice.
And with those easy recipes, you can bounce dry hair right out the door on it’s ass. Any time you use olive oil, remember that it’s, well……oil. So if you don’t want to look like a greased up ham, then remember to use it pretty sparingly. You can always add a bit more if needed. Here’s to having healthy hair all winter long!
