Is your hair dry and frizzy like mine? Do you have trouble getting it to look shiny, glossy and would you like it to feel softer and silkier? Are you tired of spending too much money on over-priced hair products? Well if that doesn't sound like the beginning of an advertisement, I don't know what does...hahaha! Just kidding, this actually isn't an advertisement, considering I don't even know the brand of the product I'm going to be telling you about! And for once, it actually really doesn't matter.
This is a treatment that I have been using about once a week for almost a year now and I can honestly say it has made my hair so much silkier and softer with very little effort and costing me almost nothing! My hair type is dry, it's very thick and prone to frizziness. Here's how I manage it without breaking the bank!
My secret? Olive oil! This is actually a super cheap-o brand from Aldi, it really doesn't matter what kind you use...just the regular one you use for cooking is fine! About once a week to once every two weeks, I apply this before bed to the ends of my hair. I use my hands (olive oil is a great moisturiser for your hands and feet too!) and just coat anywhere that needs treatment, but never touching the roots. You need to do this on unwashed hair so I usually do it either a few hours before taking a shower or I sleep on it and then wash my hair the next morning. You can wear your hair whatever way you want at night, just make sure you sleep on a towel! Here's how my hair turned out today, after sleeping in the olive oil treatment. I washed it, let it air-dry, then straightened it with my GHD so you could get a better idea of how sleek it really looks afterwards.
If your hair is dry and frizzy like mine, hopefully this tip will help you too!
On a different note, I just wanted to say how grateful I am for such an amazing response to my last post. I truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart! Thank you so much for all your messages and comments. I am trying to get back to as many as possible. I also realise that I am pretty behind in answering my Formspring questions so I'll try and get those done tomorrow.
