How to Get Silky Smooth Hair

Tonight my hubby and I with a bunch of our friends are going to stay on an island! Camp life. I can't say I'm too thrilled about not having a bathroom available though. It should be interesting! I will absolutely be blogging about it when I get home tomorrow afternoon.

For now I wanted to slip in a quick blog about shiny hair. I have wavy/curly hair and I almost always blow it dry and straighten it out sometimes leaving the bottom wavy. No matter what style I go for it always requires heating my hair which can be very damaging.

I've also fallen into the habit of washing my hair everyday and I am trying really hard to break it. These factors combined leave my hair dry and thirsty. Not to mention I live in FL, the land of humidity.

A few months ago I learned a super trick to achieving shiny hair in no time. All you have to do is pour some olive oil in your hand (the better the quality, the better it works but I'm cheap ;)

Next, rub the olive oil into your pony tail. Make sure you don't get any on the top of your hair or scalp because this will lead to a greasy look.

Tie your hair up in a bun and go about your normal activities. I leave mine in for a few hours but it's really up to you.

When you are ready to wash it out, do your normal shower routine. Do Not try to scrub your hair extra hard to get it out because you want it to have a lasting effect.

Dry hair and style and just wait and see the shining results!

I am going to do this about once a week because it makes my hair look so much healthier and super shiny!

Wish me luck on my camping adventure! :)

What is your favorite "hair recipe"?
