N♥tural Hair DIY

I'm not really into creating my own mixes and fancy hair treatments, but Coco & Creme had these 3 easy to do treatments w/ Olive Oil featured on their site. All of the ingredients are things you probably already have in your kitchen, so it's a cool way to try out some hair treatments for relatively little to no cost.

Olive Oil Recipes

Honey & Olive Oil Hair Mask
Mix ½ cup honey and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Work a small amount at a time through hair until coated. Cover hair with a shower cap; leave on 30 minutes. Shampoo well and rinse. Remember your final rinse should be done with cool water to close the hair cuticle.

Olive Oil Hot Oil Treatment
Place ½ cup of olive oil in a bowl of boiling water (you can also pour the oil in an applicator bottle then sit in a bowl of boiling water to warm). Massage the warm oil into your scalp and work your way to the ends. Cover your hair for 30 minutes with a shower cap and rinse. The warm oil penetrates more deeply into the hair shaft and will help repair damaged cuticles that cause dryness, frizziness and breakage.

Egg & Olive Oil Hair Mask
Mix two whole eggs with four tablespoons of olive oil. Smooth through hair. Wrap head with plastic wrap, and leave in hair for 10 minutes. Rinse well.

I'm going to try these. I also like the recipes on Motown Girl. I love putting my pantry to work in my hair.
