After a long winter’s exposure to dry indoor heat, our hair needs some nourishing relief! Here’s the simple solution. This easy hair treatment will result in healthier, more manageable hair and a really clean, invigorated scalp. Olive oil nourishes, conditions, and improves the strength and elasticity of your hair, while the couldn’t-be-easier process is both stress-reducing and health-promoting.
INGREDIENTS (enough for 1 or 2 treatments, depending on the length and thickness of your hair)
˝ cup olive oil
5 drops frankincense essential oil (others may be substituted, if you wish)
1 plastic bag that can fit over your hair
1. Pour olive oil into a jar with a lid, then add essential oil. Put lid on jar and shake well to disperse the essential oil. Let sit for 24 hours in a cool, dark place. Shake again before use.
2. Rinse hair with warm water. Warm 1 tablespoon of oil treatment in the palms of your hands. Using your fingertips (not nails), gently massage the oil into the scalp in a circular motion. Repeat until the entire scalp has been massaged. Rub the ends of your hair with the remaining oil.
3. Place a plastic bag over your hair, secure by tying or with a hair clip or clothespin, and allow the oil to remain for at least a half-hour.
4. Rinse well, then shampoo as usual.
Adapted from The Herbal Home Spa by Greta Breedlove (Storey Books, 1998).
Tolerance obviously requires a non-contentious manner of relating toward one another’s differences. But tolerance does not require abandoning one’s standards or one’s opinions on political or public policy choices. Tolerance is a way of reacting to diversity, not a command to insulate it from examination.
-- Dallin H. Oaks
I use a tablespoon of EVOO after washing and conditioning my hair. I let it sit over night and then wash my hair again. My is never oily afterwards and it's very soft and silky. I make sure the EVOO goes from roots to my ends.
I have psoriasis on my scalp and my head used to crack and bleed when i was younger, i used Jafra precious protein oil on my scalp every sat for the entire day. To get it out so your hair is not greasy dont wet your hair first put some shampoo on your hands and then straight on your oily hair and that cuts out most of the grease and then rinse it and wash it..that is the easiest way i've found and you still get soft hair.
