Take Advantage Of The Conditioner In Your Pantry…Olive Oil!

There are many benefits to using a natural conditioner like olive oil to make your hair super shinny and your scalp healthy and itch free! Olive oil has been used as a beauty product for centuries…so take advantage of the hair health power in your pantry! Check out these 6 simple olive oil conditioning steps! This is definitely the “recessionista’s conditioner” and it can work even better than $30-40 per liter conditioners!

Step 1
Pour 1/2 cup of olive oil into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat it in the microwave for 20seconds, or until warm.

Step 2
Place a towel over your shoulders to protect clothing.

Step 3
Put a small amount of olive oil in the palm of your hand and massage it into your hair. If you have a dry scalp, massage a small amount into the scalp, as well. If you have oily hair, massage it into your hair, but stay at least 1/2 inch from the scalp. Repeat the process of massaging small amounts at a time into the hair until the hair is entirely covered with olive oil.

Step 4
Place your hair loosely on your head and cover it with a plastic shower cap.

Step 5
Relax for at least 30 minutes while the olive oil is treating your hair.

Step 6
Shampoo the olive oil out of your hair with a mild shampoo. Give a light condition with your usual conditioner. Rinse it out completely. You will see that the olive oil treatment makes you hair much softer and much more manageable, as well as gives it some added shine.
