Olive oil for hair care

Olive oil is an excellent product to use for improving the health and quality of your hair and scalp. If you can use extra virgin olive oil, it will be marginally better. However, it will not make too significant a difference. Olive oil can strengthen your hair roots as well as the shaft. It can prevent hair loss and falling. It can also help avoid breakage of delicate hair strands by making them thicker and stronger. Olive oil will also help tremendously in preventing your hair from turning white.

This is not to say that it will turn already white hair into black – that is a genetic impossibility. But it can help by arresting whitening of hair where it stands. Olive oil can also help protect your hair as well as skin from the drying effects of the sun and wind. It will also aid in preventing dandruff formation in your hair. The best method to use olive oil is to warm it slightly and rub with your fingertips into your scalp in gentle circular motions all over your scalp. This massage should be administered for at least 15 minutes, for at least two nights week. Leave the oil on overnight and wash it off the next morning for it to show excellent results. If you can, you may also follow this procedure daily, but in that case, remember to use a mild shampoo.
