Tips For Olive Oil Hair Care
Olive Oil Hair Pack

Apply this pack on damp hair and wear a shower cap for 30 minutes. Thereafter, shampoo and conditioner your hair as usual.
Olive Oil Massage
Warm a tablespoon of olive oil for shoulder length hair. If you have longer or shorter hairs then take oil accordingly. Massage the oil gently into your hair. Massage on your scalp first and work your way up.
Ensure that you apply oil on your entire scalp. Wear a shower cap and then wrap around a towel, dipped in hot water. Once you begin to feel the towel has cooled down, dip it again in hot water, squeeze excess water and wrap around your shower cap. Repeat the process if required.
Keep the hot towel on for at least 15 minutes. Wash off hair with regular shampoo and apply your regular conditioner. This treatment is very effective in restoring moisture to hair and reducing frizz. Repeat the treatment every week and within two months, you will find your dry hair turning into a beautiful mane.
