Explore the world and learn secrets for beautiful hair! This week, Madison Reed visits Italy to learn hair care secrets, fashion-forward trends, and some fascinating facts.

Home to mouthwatering cuisine, a brimming fashion industry, luxury sports cars, classic architecture, and a whirlwind of culture, Italy is home to millions of people who live life brilliantly by honoring their traditions.

Fun Facts from Italy

Hair Care Secret: Olive Oil
When in Rome, condition as the Romans do! Using olive oil as a hair treatment is a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation. Nourish your strands with a tablespoon of olive oil (yes, the same oil you keep in the kitchen cupboard) to deeply moisturize, eliminate frizz, and improve hair elasticity.

Hair Trend: Slicked Back
This simple and fresh hair look has been spotted at Versace, setting a trend with its sporty yet powerful vibe. To create this look, simply apply a dollop of mousse at the roots, and blow dry your hair upside-down. Then, style the hair away from the face and straighten the ends to keep it super sleek. Women with straight or wavy hair will get the best results for this look.

Fascinating Facts

  • The average consumption of pasta in Italy is 25 kg per person per year. That’s a lot of pasta. Angel hair, anyone?
  • Italy only became a country in 1861 (151 years ago). With all the culture and history, we expected it to be longer than that.
  • The Vatican City only occupies 108.7 acres (about a sixth of a mile). Yet it has its own phone company, radio, TV stations, money, and stamps.
