When Oily Hair Works

In high school, I always found split ends under a microscope fascinating and creepy crawly at the same time.

In high school, I always found split ends under a microscope fascinating and creepy crawly at the same time.

When I came back from The Bachelor my hair (and my extensions) were more FRIED than McDonald’s fries!! I cut two inches off immediately. My ends were still dead, so in March I chopped four inches and for the first time in… ohhhh I dunnoooo…a decade my hair was free of split ends and felt truly healthy.

I was determined to keep it that way. Leave in masks never seemed to penetrate my hair deeply enough. As a big fan of facial oils, I decided it was time to start using oils on my hair.

Avocados can do no wrong.

I wash my hair quite infrequently. See HERE. The night before I wash my hair, I work a tablespoon of coconut oil at the ends (earlobes down). I sleep in it. In the morning I will put a teaspoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of avocado oil in my hair and let it sit for an hour or two. When you wash you hair, make sure to shampoo twice or you’ll be left with greasy ends.

Once you’ve shampooed, conditioned, and towel dried, I LOVE spraying on Pantene Pro-V’s Moisture Mist Detangler.

Since I’ve started using the oil mask once a week, I haven’t found a split end!
