Olive oil is a cleansing agent that is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants attack free radicals that do harm to the body. Coconut oil absorbs readily into the skin to reduce itching and relieve dry skin. This oil is one of the best natural nutrients for the hair, preventing dandruff, lice and lice eggs. The healthiest oils for external skin care include almond, avocado, Castor, coconut, olive and walnut, according to Homemade beauty Recipes. Honey moisturizes and provides vitamins and minerals essential to strong, shiny hair.

Cover your hair with a plastic shower cap or plastic wrap. Wait 20 minutes for your hair to condition.

Shampoo your hair with your regular shampoo, using a creme rinse if needed for hair that tangles easily. Dry and style your hair as usual. Keep the remaining conditioner in the refrigerator for up to three days.
