It's not just for salad anymore. Olive oil, the nectar of the gods, can make your hair behave like the locks of a goddess. The rich and natural oil is excellent for dry and damaged hair, and improves the texture of relaxed or color-treated hair. Little prep time or expense are necessary in using this olive oil mask. Apply it once a week for shine, added moisture, improved body and glamorous looking hair.
Blend together the olive oil with the eggs in a small bowl. Use both the yolks and the whites, and whisk until combined well.
Apply mixture to dry, clean hair, massaging into scalp. Make sure your hair is coated well.
Cover your hair with a plastic covering, then wrap the towel around your head. Your body heat helps the oil penetrate and condition your scalp.
Allow the olive oil and egg mixture to remain on the hair for 30 minutes. Chill out. Read your favorite style magazine.
Remove the covering, rinse your hair and shampoo to remove all traces of oil. Condition as desired. Enjoy your soft and supple tresses.
Prepare the mixture before you use it. Don't make extra batches, as it will not keep.
Warm the oil if you like, but it is not necessary for it to work.
