If hair is dry or damaged, here are a few recipes to try that will both nourish and bring it to a healthy shine.

BowlsThese are made with natural ingredients and most are likely in your pantry already.

The hot oil remedies at the bottom of the page work best if a warmed towel is wrapped around the head after treatment is applied, here’s how to prepare them:

  • Preheat oven to 200°F.
  • Lightly spray both sides of a towel with water then fold and arrange them in a large paper bag (or roll in aluminum foil).
  • Place bag (closed) on a baking sheet then put in the oven on the middle rack.
  • Turn off heat and they should be ready to use in about 10 minutes or so.
  • Crockpot Method: Generously mist them with water, roll up then arrange in a pre-heated crockpot (medium temperature). Cover and leave for about 20 mins, reducing to low after 10.

Use them only when they’re cool enough to handle.

Notes:

  • “EO” is short for Essential Oil
  • “EVOO” is short for Extra Virgin Olive Oil
