olive oil treatment recommended?

jamcurlyjamcurly Posts: 7Registered Users
hi, curlies,
i've been considering an extra virgin olive oil deep treatment and i wondered if any of you have tried it? i have 3b/3c hair, thick, shoulder-length, medium fine/medium coarse, and it tends to frizz. any recommendations? if you have tried it, do you use lemon juice or honey -- or anything -- to control the oily smell? thanks! - jamcurly ...

    I and a few others posted our recipes for olive oil DTs in this thread. The smell has never bothered me, but some do use honey for extra shine and conditioning. I'm fine with just using conditioner, though. Lemon juice can be drying to your hair, so I wouldn't recommend using that in a DT.

    I tried this:

    The Hair Smoothie


    1 ripened banana
    4 tablespoons olive oil
    2-3 tablespoons honey
    3 teaspoons milk

    1. Cut banana into small pieces.
    2. Put all ingredients into a blender.
    3. Blend until you get a thick smoothie-like result

    This made enough for 2 treatments, I just stored half in the fridge and used it about a week later. I loved it. My hair does not tend to get oily or greasy feeling at all, I even scrunch coconut oil into my hair after my styling products.
    Very Thick dry 3b BSL.
    Fine, medium porosity
    Right now I am using GVP conditioning balm for cowash and RO,
    my hair loves protein.
    for styling my base is BRHG I can use it alone but prefer with Curl Keeper. I sulphate poo once a month or so as needed.

    I do something similar to this, only i never used milk or honey, so thanks for that Curlyhaze!!! But i also throw in an extremely ripen avocado in there. This way its not too liquidity and easy to apply. i also use a plain white yogurt in their too... tons of vitamins :toothy7:. for some reason i end up with a ton of product, so i just end up freezing the rest and just use it when needed.

    I've left just plain olive oil on my hair for a while, and wrapped my whole head in plastic wrap. It makes my hair feel very soft and shiny.
