We all know that winter is extremely hard on skin, lips and hair. The bitter cold causes our skin and lips to crack and our hair to dry out – attractive, huh?

Makeup is impossible to apply with dry skin and dry hair makes for a bad hair day, everyday. Before you go drowning your sorrows one cup of hot cocoa at a time, check out our solutions for restoring your skin, lips and now hair back to its former glory.

This particular solution, a hot oil treatment, will add some much needed shine to your ‘do – totally restoring your hair’s natural sleekness and shine. Many stylists recommend that you apply a hot oil treatment to your hair once a week to keep your locks looking lovely. This DIY recipe is a nice alternative to purchasing rather costly hot oil treatments from your local beauty store.

All of the ingredients are staples in any kitchen pantry so there is no need to venture to the grocery store for ingredients - they’re already in your kitchen! So get ready to say goodbye to split-ends and dryness and hello to healthy, gorgeous hair!

What you’ll need:
- 3 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Saucepan
- Spoon
- Comb
- Towel
- Shower cap *optional

How to:
- First, combine the olive oil and honey in a saucepan and heat on high until it all comes to a boil.
- Remove the saucepan away from the heat and allow the mixture to cool down. Stir the mixture so that the two ingredients become well blended.
- Now, comb the honey/olive oil mixture through your hair. Once it’s evenly distributed, wrap your hair in a towel or in a shower cap for 15-30 minutes.
- After the 15-30 minutes is up, shampoo and condition your hair as you normally would.
