Extra virgin olive oil is rich in high levels of monounsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E, which is important for hair growth. It penetrates and nourishes your hair better than many other oils. To restore shine and moisture to your hair during winter, give your hair a hot oil treatment along with a good scalp massage.
1. Hot Oil
Use a double boiler to heat the oil until it’s just warm. Use a tablespoon or two olive oil to deeply you want to moisturize the hair as well as the ends.
Massage the oil deeply into your scalp for 5-10 minutes. Wrap your hair in a shower cap and let the oil soak in for 30 minutes or more. Scalp massage along with a hot oil treatment increases blood circulation thus promoting hair growth and keeping it healthy.
Comb with a wide-toothed comb before you shampoo the oil out. This will make combing and styling afterward easier. Shampoo and condition your hair as usual. You might have to shampoo twice, depending on how much oil you have applied. Use it once a week or twice for the best results.
After shower uses a dime size of olive oil or coconut oil in your palm and apply to your hair when it is slightly damp. Put only a very small amount (a drop or two) of olive oil in the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and then finger-comb through your hair to get rid of dry, frizzy hair giving it a natural shine.
