I am sitting here at my computer with my head covered in olive oil.
Thank you for all the interesting conditioning suggestions. I've decided to give them all a try, and I'm starting with the olive oil since I had it on hand.
Not to worry, this isn't a dire situation. My hair's just a little thirsty these days. Too much sun and chlorine from our frequent trips to the pool the last few weeks.
I'll let you know how it goes with Rachel's favorite cooking ingredient.
Thank you again!
