Dry, Damaged Hair: This DIY Remedy May Already Be in Your Kitchen Pantry!

You don’t have to spend a fortune on beauty products or salons to treat dry or damaged hair. Instead, you can use something you may already have at home: extra virgin olive oil. 

  • Pour 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil (use 1/4 cup if you have short hair) into a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 20 seconds. 
  • Get a towel to drape over your shoulders and massage the olive oil into your hair, starting at your scalp. 
  • Use a shower cap or plastic wrap to cover your hair. Keep your hair wrapped for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the shower cap to shampoo, condition and rinse your hair.
