hot oil hair treatment

My mother likes to run the furnace hot in our house, which I don't complain with because I'm always frozen. But I've been noticing that all the dry air is really taking a toll on my hair. :( My poor locks definitely show the harsh cold weather and dry air and it has gotten super dry and nothing seems to help it. 

I've seen some oil treatment recipes around the internet, but never really wanted to put that stuff in my hair. I researched the benefits of olive oil and canola oil and realized they're actually really beneficial for your hair. I thought I would just suck it up and give it a go, so I put together this concoction and treated my hair to a little spa day. 


Things you'll need:
3 tsp. canola oil (any oil really would work, I just happened to have this instead of olive) 
1 tsp. honey 
Warm towel or shower cap

1. Start with wet hair. Combine the oil and honey in a saucepan and heat the mixture until it begins to boil. 

2. Take away from the heat and allow to cool. Stir until well blended. 

3. Put the mixture into your hair. Comb it through to evenly distribute through your locks. Wrap your hair in towel and keep on for about 15-30 minutes. I liked using a warm towel just to lock some heat in and it was nice to have a warm head for a while. Just throw the towel in the dryer for a few minutes while the mixture is cooling.

4. Rinse and shampoo as normal. 

I blow dried my hair just a little so it wasn't soaking wet then let the rest air dry. I gotta tell ya, my hair feels amazing right now. The aroma of honey is still present in my hair and I'm loving it. It's so soft and smooth, I'm glad I tried this treatment out.

Happy Tuesday everyone!
