I love when I discover new recipes as well as new ways to use the ones that I already know. My latest find is this simple, yet effective warm rinse.
2 tbs. of olive oil
2 tbs. of honey (or 1 if less honey is preferred)
1 liter of warm water
5-6 drops of peppermint
Shake the container well prior to using.
I have been enjoying this rinse lately. It is excellent for winter hydration. Olive oil is known for its nourishing properties, and honey is an emollient, which makes this combo powerful. If kept refrigerated, you can use it daily for refreshing your hair. Because the recipe only calls for a small amount of olive oil and honey compared to the amount of water used, it can be used daily without leaving your hair feeling sticky.
In the shower, this rinse feels great on your hair and scalp. The peppermint oil contained may leave a cooling sensation on your scalp. While I’ve used olive oil & honey treatments in the past and rinsed, I never added everything together. If you are seeking a deep treatment, I would use the items as a treatment, otherwise for a daily boost to your conditioning treatment or a pre-styler that is effective yet simple, I definitely recommend that you try this rinse.
