But I LOVE it to use as a mask before washing. I have terrible split ends b/c I don't get my hair cut as often as I should, but this helps me in between hair appointments. I just slather it on, comb it through, and bun my hair for a good 30-60 minutes before showering maybe once a week.
My question is: Can I use pure olive oil from the kitchen in the same way? Just slather on 2 or 3 generous dime-sized drops, comb it through, and leave it as a mask once a week before washing?
I am only asking because olive oil is cheaper. Even the good cold-pressed, extra virgin organic olive oil would be cheaper than the Moroccanoil ounce for ounce. Plus it wouldn't contain any of those silicones or other chemicals that apparently the hair product contains. What do you think? Any experience or expert advice is much appreciated. TIA.
My experience with olive oil is that it's basically impossible to rince off, it really doesn't give you a clean finish after the mask. I would not recommend it, or maybe just on the hair ends.
I buy pure argan oil from an organic pharmacy store online, it's really unexpensive compared to Morocannoil.
