DIY Warm Oil Hair Treatment

Remember back in the day when VO5 Hot Oil was all the rage? I used to love that stuff. When I looked back and realized the toxic crap I was putting on my hair, I was horrified!


That’s why I came up with this DIY treatment.


This isn’t really a hot oil treatment, but more like a warm oil treatment!


It’s so easy to do and why shouldn’t you take a few minutes to nourish and pamper yourself and your hair?

After using olive oil to remove my eye makeup and discovering my eyelashes had grown stronger and longer (yes!) I decided to see what it could do for my hair.


Here’s what you need:


Olive oil (organic, preferred, but not necessary as it can be really expensive!)
Plastic wrap


This can be done on clean or dirty hair- I usually don’t do it when my hair is clean because I am just going to wash it again after the treatment anyway.


Just pour some olive oil in your hands and apply to hair, working from roots to ends. You do not need to saturate the hair because it’ll end up really oily after you shampoo.


Take a few sheets of plastic wrap and wrap your head tightly. This is where the heat comes in! We don’t heat the oil at all so as not to lose any of the nutrients. Your body heat does the work. The plastic wrap helps seal your body heat in and allows the oil to penetrate more deeply into the hair.


You can also put the oil directly on your face too!


Leave on from 30-45 minutes. The longer you leave it, the more conditioned and soft your hair will be.


Remove the plastic wrap, get in the shower, rinse thoroughly, shampoo (twice, if needed) and condition hair. While you’re at it, go for some body scrub too!


After your hair dries, it will be soft and shiny!

    If your hair and face could use a little tender, loving care but you can’t spare the money for a spa or salon treatment, look no further than your refrigerator. Apply the whites of an egg to your face for a tightening, brightening mask, then apply the yolk to your hair to leave it glossy and full.

    Hair must be nutured as well as the whole body. The more vitamins you eat, the healthier is your hair. There is a nice dietary supplement that contains basic compounds for enhancing hair growth and stopping hair loss – Hair Gain Formula by Military Grade. This product is the only nutraceutical which possesses PGD2 blocking properties. In my case effect is visible – much thicker hair and almost no seasonal hairloss.
