Default Re: Add Olive Oil to Shampoo

I have done this and my hair came out so silky, but I don't use shampoo anymore. I use shampoo bars, so I just pre-poo with coconut oil beforehand.

Adding oil(s) to the shampoo eliminates the pre poo method, plus it saves time. Any non-moisturizing shampoo can be converted to a moisturizing shampoo by adding oil(s), lotion, body cream, skin butter, and conditioner to it.

Some of the same ingredients can be added to conditioners.

I do add Olive Oil to the Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner because its so thick.
Co-signing...I add olive oil to my Biolage Condish when I get 6-7 weeks post on a 8-9 week stretch. It makes ahuge difference in softening the hair and making it more manageable.

I add castor oil to my shampoo from time to time to keep my NG soft and to enhance the moisturizing effect of the shampoo.

Default Re: Add Olive Oil to Shampoo

Tried it for the first time last night.

I let it sit on my head for about 5 minutes.

I can't give an accurate measurement, but I use the Keracare Hydrating & Detangling shampoo, 8oz bottle. I would guesstimate that I used about a quarter of the bottle already. So when I added oil, I filled the bottle with it. I used Sweet Almond Oil instead of Olive. About 2 oz of oil....I would say.

I did everything else the same as I would on wash day. I finished with a sleeker look. I had way fewer flyaways. My hair is fine and tends to look a bit wispy. No wispy looking hair today. I still had my usual bounce too.

I have to keep doing this to see what long term benefits will be, but I'm happy thus far.

This might be a dumb question, but would you do this with a clarifying shampoo?

Seems like if using a clarifying shampoo, you'd want it to do it's job. The oil might not allow the clarifier to work fully.

I like adding oil to my daily shampoo instead.

Thanks @greenandchic and @InBloom! That's what I thought, but then I thought someone would come in and say yes, to keep it from being too stripped. There's always an argument for each side but I'm going with you two.

@Dayjoy yes, the last time I clarified--I pre-pooed my hair and it worked well and prevented my hair from being stripped. I'm generally against clarify b/c of how stripping and damaging it is; but if I were to do it, I'd definitely pre-poo, dilute the shampoo and add oil (yes, all of that!).
