Winter Hair Care

For Dryness and Heat Damage  (thick hair)

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (cold pressed)

The ingredients above should be at room temperature and mixed in a glass bowl. Shampoo or just dampen your hare with water. Towels dry and apply the mixture all over the hair.  Leave it in for 20 to 30 minutes.  Rinse with cool water.

Greek yogurt contains a substantial amount of protein and Vitamins B1, B2, B‐6 and B‐12, which works to keep your hair healthy.  Honey makes your hair shiny and adds moisture; it nourishes and beautifies your hair. It can retain water and this makes it a good moisturizer.  Olive oil is good for your hair because it has essential fatty acids and is a rich source of Vitamin E.  It penetrates the hair’s 2 layer, so it doesn’t sit on top of the hair but is absorbed and retained.

For Dry Scalp and Hair

Put a few drops of lavender oil in the palm of your hand, work onto your fingertips and massage into scalp.  Do not rinse.

For Dry Hair:
1 Tablespoon of orchid oil extract with a few drops of extra virgin olive oil.
Massage into hand and work into damp hair starting with the ends.  Do not rinse and proceed with drying.

Lavender essential oil helps balance natural scalp oils soothing the scalp and calming hair.  It will also promote hair growth.  This Orchid oil extract restores moisture, shine, elasticity and softness to hair that has become damaged from chemical treatments, and thermal stress
