Today I watched Oprah. And she was talking about beauty rituals thoughout the world. Which got me thinking about one that I had wanted to try for a really long time now, vegetable oil in hair for silkiness.
So… being that I had some vegetable oil, I grabbed roomy and we decided today was the perfect day to try.
I found this article that instructs:
Massage a small amount of the vegetable oil into your scalp using gentle fingertip pressure and small circular movements. Comb out to the ends of your hair to ensure that you have coated each strand. Then apply a turban made from a hot wet towel to help it penetrate into your scalp and hair. Leave the oil in for at least an hour (or overnight if possible) and then wash your hair out.
So we followed the instructions and took some photos while we were at it of our sweet turbans:
It smells realllly bad.
Roomy putting the oil in her hair.
Overall, I think it worked quite well… the only thing is it leaves your hands smelling like vegetable oil. Kind of like oranges. 🙂
You should try it!
