Struggling with dull hair? We know it’s the most annoying thing ever. Despite using the best hair products, following a hair care routine religiously and munching on shine-boosting superfoods, there are times your hair just refuses to behave. Now that winter is here, it’s only going to get worse.
But don’t lose all hope, there are ways you can bring your dull hair back to life with the amazing hair hero, olive oil. This miracle ingredient has lesser-known benefits that can turn your dry and damaged hair into shiny, silky and healthy-looking mane. Packed with moisturising properties, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, this wonder oil can change your hair game forever. Take a look at three ways in which you can add olive oil in your hair care routine to get shiny and healthy hair.
Hot oil treatment
The easiest way to reap the benefits of any hair oil is to warm it before you massage it onto your scalp.
Heat some olive oil in a pan; add coconut oil to it if you have extremely dry hair. Apply the oil onto the hair and massage gently with your fingertips for 10 minutes. Let the oil stay for another 10 minutes before washing it off. Follow up with your regular shampoo and conditioner.
Doing this before every hair wash helps moisturise your hair and add shine.
Prepare a nourishing and shine-boosting hair mask by combining olive oil with other hair-loving natural ingredients such as avocado or egg.
Mix two tablespoons of olive oil with either one ripe avocado or one whole egg and apply this mask on your damp hair from scalps to ends. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse. Wash it off with a mild shampoo and conditioner. Let your hair air dry.

Apply olive oil to your dry hair from roots to tips. Make sure you apply the oil evenly through the strands. Dip a towel in warm water and squeeze the water out of it. Wrap your hair in a bun and cover it with the towel for at least half an hour. The steam deep conditions your hair and the oil works on turning your drab hair into shiny locks. Take the towel off and shampoo your hair.
Repeat this once a week for best results.
