Hair care from the kitchen

Your kitchen is actually a great stop to pick up a great an inexpensive alternative hair serum.

Can you guess what it is?

Olive oil!

Besides being great cooking aide, olive oil is a great hair care aide as well. Olive oil nourishes and strengthens your hair. It can also improve the overall elasticity.

The simplest way to add olive oil to your hair care routine is to simply add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in your hair after you shampoo and condition your hair.


For those wanting an even better treatment here it is as follows:

-Pour half a cup (some may need more or less) of olive oil in a microwave safe bowel. Heat the oil up in a microwave until it is warm.  Please be extremely careful when doing this. The point is to make the olive oil warm, not hot and steaming.

-Rub the oil throughout your hair while massaging the oil gently in your scalp.

-Once your hair covered in oil, push your hair up and put on a shower cap. If you don’t have a shower cap you can also use a couple of plastic bags to cover your hair.

-Sit and relax for about 30 minutes or so.

-Finally, rinse your hair out and try your best to get ride of the olive oil. Too much oil left over in your hair will drive you crazy throughout the day.

-After rinsing your hair, use a little shampoo and conditioner then style your hair accordingly.

Olive oil is a great inexpensive way to treat your hair after styling it for so many days with heat. You may also add essential oils or coconut oil to the mixture to give the serum and added boost. Feel free to also mix in any other scents, after all it is your own personal hair serum.
