Pinterest Hair: Olive Oil Treatment
As I sautéed onions and garlic in olive oil for spaghetti sauce yesterday, I thought, "This is the perfect time to do a hair treatment!" No? Sure, once I got the rest of my sauce together and turned down the heat, I nuked 1/4 cup of the golden goodness and grabbed a haircolor brush, a towel and set up my Sony in my bathroom!
I applied the warmed oil to my scalp first, taking about 1 inch partings.
Next, applied it throughout the ends of my dry and thirsty locks.
Then I wrapped my hair in a warm towel and per the post I found on Pinterest, I held my head upside down for 4 minutes, and left the oil on for at least 10 minutes. (Being upside makes the blood rush to your follicles, increasing absorption, supposedly.)
When my time was up, I rinsed with warm water, shampooed and conditioned. Then I dried my hair a bit and relaxed with my family over a nice meal!
My hair was super-shiny, didn't smell too bad, but was a little extra greasy today. All good, I cleaned and helped my hubs with some work, and took a nice hot shower. I washed and conditioned my hair, letting it air dry. It feels sooo silky! I might have to make spaghetti every day! Haha!
Cheers to hot olive oil,
