Dr Oz: Curly Nikki Hair Solutions
Dr Oz shared that he wanted to tackle various hair emergencies that can ruin your day, and to help he brought in Curly Nikki. Dr Oz started with Kelly, who shared that she’s a nurse so her hair has to be up all the time. She said it’s greasy at the top but dry and knotted at the bottom. Nikki said it sounded like Kelly has overactive sebaceous glands, which means her scalp is producing a lot of natural oils.
Nikki grabbed cornstarch, a wood bristle brush, a dry shampoo, and a paper toilet seat cover. Nikki told Kelly that if she’s ever out and doesn’t have a way to take care of the oil in her hair, she can take the toilet seat cover and blot away the oil. She said it works just like the ones you can buy for your face. Cornstarch is an all-natural way to do the same thing. Nikki said Kelly can just sprinkle some in her hair and then brush it out. Since her hair is dark, Nikki suggested mixing in some unsweetened cocoa powder to give it some color.
Because Dr Oz sprinkled so much cornstarch on her hair, it looked like her hair had turned grey. He promised to fix her up after the segment though!
Dr Oz: Deep Conditioning Treatment For Dry Hair
Dr Oz then asked his audience who had struggled with brittle ends. Two women joined Dr Oz and Nikki onstage, saying they struggle with dry hair and damaged brittle ends. Nikki explained that excessive heat styling and not moisturizing properly can wear away at our hair’s structure, leaving it prone to brittleness and breakage.
If you struggle with dryness but not breakage, Nikki suggested a deep conditioning treatment with oils, honey, and conditioner. She said to use your favorite conditioner, jojoba oil, and honey mixed together to evenly cover your hair. Then put on a plastic hair cover with a wool hat on top to warm things up and open the cuticle. She said just 30 minutes is all you need before you get in the shower and wash it out.
Dr Oz: Solution For Frayed Ends
If you’re already experiencing breakage, Nikki suggested you twist small sections of your hair, and cut the frayed pieces of damaged hair that stick out of the spiraled hair.
