If your hair is dry and brittle, consider saturating it with grapeseed oil (the type meant for cooking, not in the capsules). It has the same moisturizing benefits as olive oil, but doesn’t leave you smelling like a giant plate of dolmas.
Wet hair in the shower, eliminating excess water. Then, comb a generous amount of grapeseed oil through hair and wrap a towel around it. Leave the towel on for approximately 20 minutes so the oil penetrates the hair shaft.
Be sure to use shampoo to wash the oil out, and depending on your hair type, consider using conditioner to complete the process.
Voila! Silky, smooth hair on a budget!
