How to prepare nourishing hair oil?


This usually does not require too much of a preparation. In fact, a simple amount of olive oil on your hair can do wonders. You can do it in two ways:

  • Apply a few drops of olive oil on damp hair and leave it overnight. You rinse it off in the morning and then apply a conditioner. You will notice that your hair is shinier and easier to manage.
  • Apply olive oil on dry hair and wear a shower cap. Keep it on for about 2 hours. If you have a hair steam machine, you can use that as well to do hot oil on your hair.

How to prep olive oil for hair?

Do you need to warm it or mix it with other items.


You can use olive oil in many different ways on hair. It not only is moisturizing, but promotes growth, is anti-inflammatory and can help prevent dandruff.

Ways to use olive oil or extra virgin olive oil:

  • As a pre-shampoo. This can be used on wet or dry hair. You mix together 1/4 cup of olive oil with 2 tablespoons of castor oil, and 4 drops of tea tree oil. Apply to hair for 15 minutes or longer. After application you may want to cover your hair with a shower cap or other plastic to help keep the heat in. Once appropriate time has past wash your hair as usual.
  • Heat it up. Place enough olive oil into a sturdy plastic bag and place bag into a cup of hot water. The water shouldn't be boiling, but it should be hot enough to heat up the oil in the bag to a safe level. Once the water in the cup has cooled to a tolerable level you are ready to apply the oil to your hair. Be careful as the oil may be considerably hotter than the water make sure it is not hot enough to cause burning.
  • Mask it. Olive oil and egg yolk masks are another option. Separate enough egg yolks for your hair length and add one tablespoon of olive oil for each yolk you use. Mix well and apply to dry hair. If you want you can cover your hair to help prevent the egg drying. Leave the mix on for 15-20 minutes and then you can rinse or if necessary shampoo as usual.
