Do-it-Yourself

If you’re anything like me, you want to have healthy, shiny hair. My hair icon is Jennifer Aniston. I’ve always wondered how she gets her locks so shiny. I have my cosmetology license and have worked in some very upscale salons. I’ve thrown money at products that promised me miracles…only to be disappointed. So I was a little skeptical when I read that honey and olive oil can smooth hair cuticles and restore its condition and shine. But IT WORKS! I instantly felt the coarseness of my hair diminish when I applied my concoction. Here’s what I did:

1. Put two ounces of extra virgin olive oil into a microwave safe bowl.

2. Add 3-5 drops of Organic (Michigan made) honey.

3. Microwave for 15-20 seconds.

4. Place ends of hair into the mixture, rub well, saturating the ends.

5. Drizzle mixture onto the mid-shaft area of your hair. Rub through with fingers. Avoid the scalp area.

6. Put hair into a bun and let sit for 20-30 minutes.

7. Wash hair with a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner.

8. Towel dry hair. (I added a VERY SPARSE amount of olive oil to my ends once it was towel dried).

9. let hair air dry or blow dry.

10. Hair feels healthy again! Love this. I also have a friend who says she adds a few drops into her conditioner once a week and uses it as a leave in conditioner. This is by far the BEST home remedy that I have found. Saves me a TON of money! I don’t even use Moroccan oil any more (which retails for $30-$40!! Yikes!)
