Use Olive Oil Conditioner

Use Olive Oil Conditioner

Olive oil is a great natural conditioner for hair. You can apply it directly to your lovely locks and massage it into the scalp for a deep conditioning.  Put a shower cap over your hair and leave it on over-night. Shampoo and rinse as normal in the morning.  If you would like to speed the process along, put the shower cap on and wrap a warm or hot wet towel around your head and let it sit for 1 - 2 hours.  Reheat the towel as needed, and be careful not to burn yourself!

Coconut Oil can also be used in the same manner. Saturate your locks, cover up with a shower cap, let them marinate, and rinse. Use the hot towel method for a deeper conditioning.

Avocado and Olive Oil Conditioner Recipe

Take half of an avocado and mash it in a mixing bowl (you will want the final results to look like a paste). Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and mix well.

If you would like a more fragrant conditioner, add a very ripe banana to your avocado and olive oil mixture and mash well.

Spread the finished paste throughout your hair and let it sit for up to one hour. Rinse well.

Related Olive Oil Joke from Queen City Style

Funny enough, we even have a related joke!

Trying to control my dry hair, I treated my scalp with olive oil before washing it. Worried that the oil might leave an odor, I washed my hair several times. That night when I went to bed, I leaned over to my husband and asked, 'Do I smell like olive oil?'

"No," he said, sniffing me. 'Do I smell like Popeye?'
