Olive Oil

Written by Laquita

imageOlive oil seals in moisture, conditions, and improves the strength and elasticity of your hair, it also helps with dry, itchy scalp and kills head lice. Olive oil can be applied to dampened ends to seal in moisture as an effective way to prevent split ends. Mix olive oil with your favorite conditioner, and use it as a deep conditioning treatment.

Olive oil is the only vegetable oil that can be consumed as it is – freshly pressed from the fruit. It has a high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidative substances. Olive oil also protects against heart disease by controlling LDL cholesterol levels, while raising HDL cholesterol levels.

Store olive oil in a cool and dark place, tightly sealed, because when exposed to oxygen, light or high temperatures the oil can easily go rancid.

Recipes

Honey & Olive Oil Hair Mask
Mix ½ cup honey and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Work a small amount at a time through hair until coated. Cover hair with a shower cap; leave on 30 minutes. Shampoo well and rinse. Remember your final rinse should be done with cool water to close the hair cuticle.

Make Your Own Flaxseed Gel Natural Hair

It can be difficult to find all natural projects.  Disasisfied with what the market provides? Make your own chemical free alternative!  Laquita provides step by step directions in how to create your very own flaxseed gel.

Flaxseed or linseed comes from Linum usitatissimum, a blue flowered plant. Flax seeds are thought to have originated in the ancient Middle East during biblical times. Historians have traced its cultivation in Babylon as early as 3000 BC.

Apple Cider Vinegar

image
Apple cider vinegar has multiple purposes and it is great for hair as well – and most importantly it is inexpensive. A 32oz bottle of Raw Organic ACV will cost about $5, and it only takes a cap full or about one tablespoon to make your very own clarifying rinse. ACV contains alpha-hydroxy acids, is an antiseptic and balances pH, it also closes the hair cuticle preventing product build-up.

I use a cap full or one tablespoon mixed in two cups of lukewarm water as an after shampoo clarifying rinse. I also use this ACV mixture in-between washing to get rid of itchiness. When wearing extension braids, or cornrows, or weaves you can use make-up sponges to dip into your mixture to clean your scalp.

ACV can also be used to get rid of dry scalp. Instead of using one tablespoon, increase the amount to 1/2 cup to get to treat a dry, flaky scalp. Let the mixture sit on your scalp for about 20 to 30 minutes then do a final rinse with cool water.
