Olive Oil Dry Hair Treatment

Dry Hair?

So your hair doesn’t quite look like the model’s in the Pantene commercial? You’re not alone…especially as the weather gets colder.

What Causes Dry Hair?

In addition to dry air and cold weather, some common factors that can lead to dry hair are…

  • Age. Your hair loses moisture as you age, according to WebMD. According to Dr. Heather Woolery-Lloyd, a dermatologist in Miami Beach, Florida, “Our oil glands shrink over time and they don’t produce oil efficiently” as we get older.
  • Styling Tools and Products. Blowdryers, curling irons and hair straighteners really strip your hair of natural moistures. The more regularly you use them, the dryer hair can become. Put hair dyes, chemical straightening and similar treatments in this category, too!
  • Harsh Products. (And actually, overuse of even gentle products, too: over-shampooing is a surefire way to dry out your hair.) Products containing dyes, fragrances, alcohol and other additives are less than kind to your hair, and sap it of its moisture.

Dry Hair Treatment

Want to restore some moisture? Treat your dry hair with olive oil and some honey – an all-natural remedy that really works! Did we mention it’s DIY, super quick and pretty darn luxurious?

“Honey is a natural humectant, which means it attracts and locks in moisture,” says Janice Cox, author of Natural Beauty at Home.
