Jamika's Go-To Ingredient for Keeping Her Hair Ultra Moisturized

Jamika Pessoa knows great hair starts at the scalp. So she makes sure to give her scalp some extra love and attention. She has a special moisturizing treatment routine she does about every other month — or even twice a month when it's dry and cold. Whenever her tresses needs an extra boost to tame wispy hairs, frizzy flyaways or itchy dandruff.

Her go-to ingredient is something you probably have in your kitchen right now: olive oil! And her routine is super simple for you to do at home. Follow the steps below.

Jamika’s Simple Scalp Moisturizing Treatment

  1. Fill a mug with water and microwave for about 1 minute.
  2. Find a small glass or microwave-safe bottle — like an old skin care bottle with an eye dropper dispenser. Make sure it’s clean and fill it with olive oil.
  3. When the mug water is hot, drop the closed bottle of olive oil in the water. Let it sit for a few minutes to warm up.
  4. Test the temperature of the olive oil on the back of your hand. Make sure it’s warm but not too hot for your scalp’s sensitive skin.
  5. Section your hair with a pointy comb. Starting at your hairline and going all the way back, rub the oil on your scalp. You can even give yourself a head massage while you do it!
  6. Wrap your hair in a towel and let the oil sit for 20 minutes.
  7. Wash your hair and style as normal.
With this routine, Jamika gives her scalp and hair an ultra-moisturizing treatment. Tame wiry baby hair and itchy dandruff by giving your scalp the love it deserves.
