By Haley Schryver

In the summer, our hair needs a little extra love. Between all the time in the sun, and the time in the pool, our hair can become a little bit dry and brittle. This hair mask is perfect as a weekly treatment for replenishing your hair’s natural moisture and shine. 

 

What’s in it?

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Olive oil has been used for hundreds of years as a natural hair moisturizer. It contains lots of fatty acids that coat your hair and protect it from UV rays, chemical hair products, and heat styling. Olive oil coats each strand of hair and leaves it looking super shiny and healthy.

 

Shea Butter

Shea butter has long been used to moisturize and protect dry skin, but it can also be used on hair as well. Vitamins A, F, and E are abundant in shea butter and are great hair repair vitamins for dry and damaged hair damaged hair.

 

Raw Honey

Organic raw honey can help seal in moisture and strengthen the hair, reducing breakage and encouraging hair growth.
