Restoring Dry Hair

If there's one drawback to warm weather, it's that all that time spent outdoors can strip the natural moisture from your hair. The remedy? A deep-conditioning treatment using rich, emollient oils. Although many many oils can be used -- olive is a favorite in Mediterranean countries, while Native Americans used jojoba -- blends are better, says L.A.-based stylist Philip B., who was doing so many of the treatments that he created an at-home kit as part of his line of botanical-based hair-care products. "A mix of different-size oil molecules will penetrate and condition more effectively," he explains. With Philip's help, we've created an easy at-home treatment that gives even the driest hair bounce and shine. Follow these steps, and remember your grade-school science: Since oil won't mix with water, it slides right off wet hair. Don't dampen your hair until the wash-and-rinse stage.
Note: Use a natural, blended oil for best results.Try: Philip B. Rejuvenating Oil, Aeto Botanica Fortifying Oil, Better Botanicals Herbal Hair Oil, or L'Occitane Olive Hair Care Oil.

1. Brush Dry HairOils will penetrate dry, thirsty hair better than hair that's been freshly washed and conditioned. Brush hair thoroughly to distribute its natural oils, and drape a towel over your shoulders to catch drips.
2. Go Section by Section Work the oil into your hair one section at a time. Starting at the ends and using your fingers, apply the oil a few drops at a time. Work it into the hair until it's saturated, stopping an inch from the scalp. Pay particular attention to dry and damaged areas, which will absorb more oil.
3. Lock in the Moisture Blow-drying will help the oils penetrate the hair shaft. Using a dryer with a nozzle attachment on a medium-high setting, direct heat down the hair shaft and away from the scalp. Your hair will absorb much of the moisture it needs when heated; if it still drips, blot the excess with a towel.

4. Sit Back and RelaxIf your hair is dry, leave the oils on for 20 to 45 minutes. Colored, damaged, or brittle hair will need 45 minutes to 2 hours. For a truly deep conditioning treatment, leave the oils on overnight -- just cover your pillow with a fresh towel.
5. "Dry" Shampoo, Then Rinse Apply a heaping handful of a natural shampoo to dry hair. Work it into the hair and scalp for 3 to 5 minutes. If needed, spritz your hair with just enough water to create a workable lather. Rinse with warm water.
6. Rebalance Hair's MoistureHair is already moist, so a light conditioner is all you need. To remove any oil residue and leave hair bouncy, try a cider-vinegar-based rinse (such as John Masters Organics Herbal Cider Hair Rinse & Clarifier). Rinse, dry, and style as usual.

PUT a SPRING in YOUR STEP~~~I found a darling shoe makeover on here:

Cute way to add colorful bows to your flatties(:)


  1. I love your kitty kat and all the spring photos.


  2. Aww, thanks, Patty... I'll be posting about my little Blackie some time soon I think... I love your Tomikins, too :)He loks so much like our Tiger (real origina name, huh? LOL) I'm glad you enjoyed the windowseat post!! And I love your k.d. lang music... Her voice is incredible!... Donna

  3. Oh, you are so right about k.d. lang! I have her version of Hallelujah on my playlist (it sometimes gets shuffled back to the top)... I'd love to see her in person someday. Bet she sounds as good in person (or better) than on her cd's... You can't say that for all performers. I saw Johnny Mathis in concert a few years ago and he's the same way - his voice is absolutely incredible... Have a great time at the wedding!!... Donna


SO glad you came by (:) Patty
