by Christine Assimakopoulou
Ever wondered if a cheaper and home-made solution to your damaged hair exists?
Advertisements of restructuring masks pop-up in your browser every 30 seconds, while the shelves of beauty salons are filled with bright, nutritious hair products that promise longevity and amazing results in the daily appearance of your hair.
However, what most women have not yet realized is they can make their own hair care products, using ingredients found in their pantry.
As it turns out, extra virgin olive oil in combination with honey can give a soft and shiny look to your hair in a matter of minutes!
- Olive oil is a rich conditioner that regulates hair and facilitates combing. It consists of monounsaturated fatty acids with strong antioxidants and vitamins A and E, which help repair skin and hair.
- Honey is moisturizing; attracts and retains moisture which makes it an ideal choice for damaged or dry hair. It has also been shown to be effective against a wide range of bacteria.
If you are still looking for a recipe to create your own natural, extra nourishing, rejuvenating hair mask, here are some tips to prepare and apply one that we found to have the best results:
Mix 3 tablespoons of honey with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a bowl. Apply it from mid-length to the ends of your hair and leave it on for 30 minutes. Wash your hair thoroughly and enjoy the result!
Quantities above constitute the ideal amount for a one-use mixture. You can definitely scale it according to your needs, by adding equal parts of each ingredient.
