Hair exposure to dry heat or the sun requires immediate nourishing. Did you know that the solution may just be inside your kitchen cupboard? Olive oil is considered the best for dry hair. It nourishes, conditions, and strengthens the strands. Here is an easy concoction that will result in healthier, more manageable hair, plus an invigorated scalp. The mixture below may be good for 1 or 2 treatments, depending on the length and thickness of your hair.
½ cup olive oil
5 drops frankincense essential oil (it may be substituted by other essential oils if you desire)
1 plastic shower cap
Pour olive oil into a jar with a lid, then add essential oil. Put lid on the jar and shake well to disperse the essential oil. Let sit for 24 hours in a cool, dark place. Shake again before use.
Rinse hair with warm water. Warm (not hot) 1 tablespoon of oil treatment in the palms of your hands. With your fingertips, gently massage the oil into the scalp in a circular motion. Repeat until the entire scalp has been massaged. Rub the ends of your hair with the remaining oil.
Cover your hair with the shower cap and allow the oil to seep in for at least 30 minutes. Rinse well, then shampoo as usual.
Depending on the dryness or condition of your hair, you can do this treatment once or twice a week. With the treatment, you will notice that your hair will start to recover its healthy shine and softness. Who says you need to go to the salon to get hair treatment?
