I've decided that I want to make a post every Sunday dedicated to at home "spa" type things such as facials, hair mask, and other things you can do at home for cheap. I personally like to treat my self on Sundays, just relax and take time to give my hair and skin some extra love and attention it deserves.
So my first post will be on how I keep my hair soft and silky all week. I am a firm believer in not washing your hair daily, it dries your hair and scalp out and if you dye your hair like me if slowly but surely fades your color and no one wants dry hair with faded color. I have fine hair, its a medium/long length and I dye it a few times a year, I dye it black because it fades into a dark brown color that I really like, I personally don't use heat on my hair very often maybe once every other month, but I also only get my ends cut off a few times a year so to me its important to keep my ends from splitting and to keep my hair as silky and soft as possible.
|Make sure its extra virgin ollive oil.|
You can use extra virgin coconut oil too.
|This the brush I'm talking about.|
After you have let it sit in your hair for your desired time of course just rinse it out, I suggest using either a clarifying shampoo(DO NOT use this if you just dyed your hair) or kids shampoo(this usually has conditioner in it and its much more gentle and doesn't strip your color as much), I usually use both just to insure its all out, believe me its not a good thing when you accidentally leave some of it in, having clean roots and greasy ends just doesn't look right. Honestly this leaves my hair so soft and shiny all week and it doesn't leave your hair smelling like olive oil.
Thanks for reading, sorry for the boring pretty much all text post, next at home spa Sunday post will be on a at home facial or maybe exfoliater.
