Olive Oil Hair Mask
If you would like to spoil yourself without spending a lot of money, you will love this olive oil hair mask. It is easy to do, and you will love the shiny, silky hair you will end up with.
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- 1 tbsp conditioner, of your choice
In a small, glass bowl, add the olive oil and conditioner. Stir until blended, and put into the microwave in 30-second increments, until slightly warmer than your body temperature. (Be careful, the oil will heat up fast.)
Using your hands, apply the oil and conditioner mixture to the top layer of your hair, After all of the oil is applied, comb it into your hair until evenly distributed. (You may need more or less of the suggested amounts listed, depending on the thickness and length of your hair.)
Once the oil is evenly applied to your hair, tie your hair into a loose bun or ponytail. Then, put on a shower cap. (If you don’t have a shower cap, you can wrap a plastic bag around your scalp.)
The next step will be to find a towel and wrap it around your head. The towel will trap body heat inside the plastic bag or shower cap, allowing the shafts of your hair to more easily receive the moisturizing benefits of the oil.
Now, you are ready to wait. I suggest leaving on the olive oil hair mask overnight, but even 30 minutes will give you nice results if that’s all the time you have.
When you are ready to remove the mask from your hair, you will need to only shampoo it, as you normally would. You may, however, wish to apply shampoo a second time, as this will ensure all the oil is washed from your hair. Dry as you normally do.
Enjoy your shiny, healthy hair!
