Take two and a half tablespoon of olive oil if your hair are of medium length and alter the quantity accordingly depending on your hair length; bring it to heat until its lukewarm. Now apply it using your fingertips deep in the roots and when you are done work up the oil in the hair all the way to tips. Once all the oil has been applied to your hair. Tie them lightly and leave them over for atleast a night. Shampoo using a mild solution.
