Last week i decided to try Olive Oil in my hair and i knew it would be good. Olive oil is so nourishing and when put on the skin it makes it so soft, so i thought it would be beneficial and it was! My hair felt lovely and soft afterwards. Keep reading to find out what i did...
What you will need:
Extra virgin olive oil
Shower cap or net
How to do it:
Start off with dry hair, put on your gloves (this is just to stop your hands for becoming really greasy). Apply the oil to the palm of your hand, enough to fill it. Then gently pull the oil through your hair, from root to tip. Make sure you evenly cover all your hair but don't soak it. Once you have covered your hair (remove gloves) apply a shower cap, and then apply your hair towel. The towel is there just to prevent staining on your clothes and pillow. Now leave the oil in your hair overnight. In the morning when you wash your hair you will need to wash it thoroughly. Many people say you need to shampoo twice but i only needed to once because i made sure i massaged the shampoo in all over. After shampooing apply conditioner to the ends of your hair.
After blow drying you should see a difference, my hair felt softer, shiner and stronger after only one treatment. I would recommend doing this every two weeks or so to really see the benefits.
Next i am going to try coconut oil, i will let you know how it goes!
