Over the years, I’ve been asked about dozens of hair care-related myths and tricks. One that comes up again and again is the use of pure olive oil as a hair conditioner. The truth is, while this extract of the olive tree fruit is an excellent moisturizer, anyone who has ever applied it directly to her hair knows it’s also heavy, difficult to work with, impossible to rinse out and tends to leave strands limp and greasy. Fortunately, Regis DesignLINE offers a complete collection of hair care that combines the superior hydration of olive oil with formulas that are specially made for your mane. The lineup includes a shampoo, a conditioner, a hair masque and—my favorite—a leave-in conditioner. Just mist one pump (more if hair is long) on damp hair after shampooing, comb through and watch this miracle minimize damage, add body, reduce frizz, boost strength and protect color from fading caused by heat styling.
Best of all, unlike the pantry version, this olive oil won’t leave hair limp, slick or—worse—smelling like the evening’s salad course.
