You know how your hair feels completely amazing after you get it done and all you do is run your fingers through it and you feel like a hair goddess? Well, I don’t. I can hardly remember, it has been ages since I have gotten my hair done. True story, I actually tend to only get it professionally done once a year, because I just can’t bring myself to spend $200 on my head. I wish I was one of those every 6-8 week people. I really do, but the truth is I will probably end up at Sally’s buying hair color and I am forever trimming my own bangs and layers. Yep, my stylist hates. me.
Anyway, now is the time when I start to get antsy and I know I need to get it done, but right now back to school for the kids is a priority, so I have been playing with all of the goodies that I already have to make myself feel better! I recently blogged about using coconut oil on your hair, which was totally legit. It made my hair super soft and it genuinely felt better. So the other day I decided to try out my bottle of Almond Oil in the same way!
A tablespoon at a time I worked it into my dry hair until it was all covered. Then I wrapped my hair in plastic wrap and then a towel and hung out. I blogged, and did whatever. (I didn’t really keep time.)
Then you just shampoo your hair ( twice if your hair is thinner and tends to be more oily. Mine is thick and course, so one was enough for me.) The results? Also legit! I really liked this as a sort of “hot oil treatment”. The overall condition is just…better. Less ugh, if you will. I didn’t heat up the oil first, but maybe next time I will!
feel free to laugh. These weren’t taken as an intentional before and afters, I just noticed the HUGE difference it really made when I was looking at my instagrams. (I’d say it was maybe just the filter is it didn’t also feel sooo much better.) And yes that was days apart, I just have a lot of different iphone cases.
Honestly you guys, I do NOT claim to be some expert on this stuff, but if I try it, and I like it, I will share it. Well, I’d probably share if I hated it too! But, Almond Oil is so great. I use it for so many home beauty DIYs and even put it directly on my face at night. I’m telling you, the things I am willing to do to fend off the wrinkles, I’d sleep in a pea pod if it helped.
Have you used Almond Oil before?
