As crazy as it sounds our Yumologists have discovered a wonder-treatment for dry, damaged hair and it's the same natural goodness you dip your garlic bread into at Nino's Italian restaurant - OLIVE OIL!

No wonder the women of Italy have such lovely locks, they've been treating them with olive oil for centuries. The nutrients found in olive oil are known to noursih, condition and imrpove the strength and elasticity of your hair while relieving stress at the same time.

Here's a quick hair care recipe to try at home:

1/2 cup of olive oil
5 drops of an essential oil (frankincense is highly recommended)
1 plastic bag to fit over your hair or saran wrap.

  • Mix the olive oil and essential oil together, shake well and let sit overnight.
  • Shake well again right before use and pour a tablespoon over your scalp.
  • Dip your fingers into the oil and rub the ends of your hair with the mixture as well.
  • Wrap your hair in plastic and let sit for 30 mins.
  • Rise with shampoo and conditioner as you normally would.

Buon appet...well, buon HAIR-DO!
