Hair care - Nourishing hair conditioner recipes for dry hair

A moisturizing and nourishing hair conditioner is a must in order to control dry hair and scalp.

There are many causes of dry hair. The outside, environmental factors, what we eat, blowdrying, dying the hair, iron curlers...

Not any oil added to the recipes will do though. Some oils leave a greasy residue which you certainly don't want. Oils such as coconut moisturize enough and also create a protective layer on the hair shaft that will lock in the moisture. You will also find olive oil as one of the ingredients. Olive oil is a wonderful nourishing ingredient, used in body and skin care. It nousishes the hair shaft and also adds to its elastisity which dry hair often lacks.
