Olive Oil for Deep ConditioningYou will need:
A deep conditioning treatment should be done at the end of the day, before you shampoo. Apply a handful of olive oil to dry hair and massage it in to the scalp and hair, making sure that you get every piece of hair from root to tip.
When you're done soaking your hair in the olive oil, throw a towel into the dryer for about 10 minutes. Quickly wrap the hot towel around your head and secure it with the hair clip or tuck the towel under.
Leave your hair in the towel for at least an hour. You can also do this treatment right before bed and leave it in overnight. Once your hair is treated, wash your hair with a regular shampoo and conditioner. You may need to rewash it 2 or 3 times to remove all of the oil.
The olive oil will leave your hair feeling soft and healthy once again.

Mayonnaise Hair ConditioningYou will need:
Towel or Shower Cap
Apply the mayonnaise to your hair, allow it to stay on your hair for 20 minutes. Wash and dry your hair as usual.
Vinegar ConditioningVinegar is also a great condition, that will refresh dry hair and elevates shine. Add one tablespoon to your hair for an effective rinse. The remedy also controls dandruff when mixing 2 cups of water with 1/2 cup of vinegar. Using vinegar also combats frizzy hair.
Oil Treatment for your HairRubbing a small amount of oil into the scalp makes an effective treatment for dry hair. Olive oil , Coconut oil, or Argan oil works well. After rubbing the oil into your hair, cover with a cap and leave in for at least an hour, but overnight is preferable. When you awake, rinse wash as usual, ensuring you remove all traces of oil.
Hot Oil TreatmentsHot oil treatments have proven quite effective for adding moisture back into dry, damaged hair. A suggested approach is to place 1 or 2 drops of safflower oil in your palms (rubbing them together), and then scrunching the mixture into hair. This is a rather effective leave-in treatment. You may also massage two tablespoons of warm olive oil (or almond oil) into the hair, followed by wrapping the head in a warm, damp towel, wait 30 minutes and then rinse.
Hot oil treatments are most effective when applied to the hair at least every 3 to 4 weeks.
