I want shiny and healthy hair!

 

Olive oil is a truly amazing product, that offers not only a lot of benefits to our health, but it can be used also externally as a natural cosmetic that makes our skin and hair softer, better moisturized and more beautiful. The best type of it is extra virgin olive oil.
It is a great cosmetic for our body because it contains healthy fatty acids and vitamin E that keeps skin young (you can find more details and read my recent tips here: olive oil for soft hands and feet).



Did you know that olive oil can be also a great hair conditionerthat makes your hair glossy? It can be applied to all hair types: it adds moisture not only to dry or damaged hair but also to greasy hair. It simply boots shine to all hair types.

Below you will find some natural hair tips and treatments that make use of olive oil.

Recipe : Simple olive oil mask
You will need: few tablespoons of olive oil extra vergine, towel to cover your shoulders, regular shampoo.
How to make it?
First, cover Your shoulders with a towel in order not to stain your clothing. Then, depending on your hair length, apply good amount of oil on your hair concentrating on ends. Massage it into your hair for a moment. Keep this mask on your hair for about 30-60 minutes. You can cover it with warm towel or with a shower cap, but it is not extremely important. Then, rinse your hair with lukewarm water and shampoo it twice. If you feel your hair greasy, you can shampoo even three times. If you do not rinse it enough, hair will remain covered with oil all day long. So make sure you have plenty of time to apply the mask and to shower it afterwards.
Result: soft and shiny hair. Gorgeous!
Tip 2: Shampoo enrichment
You will need: a little bit of olive oil, regular shampoo
Add few drops of the oil to your shampoo and wash your hair normally. It works really well if you massage your head and hair for 30-60 seconds, then rinse and apply shampoo again (this time without any additional ingredients). Rinse with lukewarm water. It will leave hair luminous!



If you want to make your hair soft, shiny and glamorous, those tips are definitely worth trying.
