DIY Warmed Olive Oil Prewash Treatment

Ladies, our hair takes a beating.  From hair dryers to flat-irons to curling irons, our hair needs a little TLC.  This DIY prewash treatment will get your hair feeling soft and healthy again.

What you’ll need:

– About a half cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (More or less depending on thickness/length of hair)

– Ground up lavender

– Shower Cap

…and that’s it!


Warm up the olive oil in the microwave for about 15 seconds.  Then, we like to put a bit of ground up lavender in it to leave your hair smelling great.  Split your hair into sections and apply the olive oil throughout your hair from scalp to the tips.  Make sure to massage the roots.  Once you have applied the oil to all of your hair, put your hair into a shower cap and let it sit from about 30 minutes to an hour.  After that, jump into the shower and wash out all of the oil.  Shampoo and rinse thoroughly.  Then, depending on your personal preference, you can choose to condition your hair (some opt out of this as your hair will already be feeling pretty smooth and conditioned).  When you’re finished, style as you would normally.  For best results, however, we like to air dry to really let your hair rejuvenate.
