10 Vintage Beauty Tips to Use More Often


2. Oil

Using cooking oil as a hair treatment was once all the rage, but has fallen out of practice as fancier, more expensive products have come on the market.  Ladies of the 1940s and ’50s knew the value of a good oil treatment, in which the hair was washed with very hot water and then soaked in oil to promote luster. However, you can make your hair shine by using different kinds of vegetable and fruit oils.  For example, coconut oil is one of the most widely spread oils in Asia and the South Pacific. Argan oil repairs you hair, jojoba oil strengths it, olive oil softens your hair and avocado oil moisturizes the scalp.

If you decide to try this tip, choose the oil suitable for your hair type. Do not put the oil straight on your hair or scalp! Instead, put a couple of oil drops into the palm of your hand and rub your hands together to spread the oil. The ends of your hair are usually the most damaged part, demanding the most care. Scrunch it in your hands and repeat the procedure with all the length. Put a couple of oil drops on your palm again and massage the scalp for 5-10 minutes. Then rap the hair in a towel to prevent dripping and wait about 15 minutes. Afterward, mix a little lemon juice with your hair cleanser to remove the oil.
