Winter cold and dryness can be tough on our hair and skin. Keeping our bodies hydrated becomes more important in winter months, which is a great time to deep condition our hair with extra virgin olive oil.
Olive oil hair masks are easy to make at home. This mask will hydrate and act as a natural conditioner for the hair. Olive oil does wonders in nourishing brittle dry hair, rejuvenating it and giving it a healthy glow. Honey allows to the olive oil to bind and deeply penetrate damaged hair.
We recommend making a simple emulsion of olive oil with some honey to create a hair mask that will bring life back to stressed hair.
Step 1: Comb through wet hair, preferably recently shampooed.
Step 2: Mix ½ cup California Olive Ranch extra virgin olive oil with ¼ cup honey.
Step 3: Mix the two together with a fork until they are well mixed and make a smooth paste.
Step 4: Taking a handful of the mixture into your hand, start with the ends of your hair and gently massage the mixture into your hair. Apply a liberal amount and comb through to ensure that it is evenly distributed.
Step 5: Pull your hair into a loose bun, and cover your head with a shower cap. Let sit for 20 minutes.
Step 6: Shower, apply shampoo and conditioner as you normally would.
Step 7: Enjoy your new healthy hair!
