Honey and Olive Oil Conditioning Treatment
The dry winter weather can suck the life out of anybody’s hair. Every couple of weeks, I like to apply a nourishing, moisturizing deep conditioning treatment. For me, it makes a difference. This one is easy and effective.
For this hair treatment, you will need:
- ½ cup organic liquid honey
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- ½ teaspoon of vanilla (if you want an aromatic boost)
Whisk the ingredients together until blended, apply to dry hair, wrap your hair in a towel or a shower cap, and let it soak in for 10-15 minutes. After that, shampoo and condition as usual. You will likely need to do two shampoos.
The honey in this treatment acts as a natural humectant, providing soothing moisture and antioxidant benefits to your locks. The olive oil provides much needed moisture and adds a healthy shine to your tresses.
After having done this treatment, even in the dry winter cold, I find that I have fewer flyaway ends, and my hair feels sleeker and silkier. This is also a safe and easy treatment to apply to your kids’ hair, if you think they can sit still while it soaks in: it will alleviate discomfort if your little ones are experiencing a dry scalp. Plus, if they lick their hair you know that it is safe to eat!
