Beauty: Do-It-Yourself Olive Oil for Hair Care

Olive Oil is obtained from the Olive trees. Olive Oil is widely known being used in cooking since it is healthy and cholesterol-free. However, the vain spirit in me live up again, so I researched on the other uses of olive oil.

Applying olive oil on hair has many benefits. One is deep conditioning which is a must in hair care. Its lightweight formula is great to not weigh down the hair after use. Emollients can penetrate in  the hair better than the others and Olive oil is one of the top emollients. Also if you are experiencing dry scalp, olive oil is highly recommended since it has this anti-inflammatory properties to achieve healthy scalp. So, olive oil is not only for dry hair, it is also for dry scalp that causes dandruff. Vitamin E content of the Olive oil is also good for hair growth.

With so many types of Olive oil in the market, I chose the extra virgin one. Extra virgin Olive oil means oil is being extracted from the original fruit without applying synthetic treatment. Extra Virgin Oil has also been categorized as best/highest quality of Olive Oil in the market. So why not get the best one right?

So back to the DIY (Do-It-Yourself), using Olive Oil as hair conditioner is as easy as 1, 2, 3.  And who would ever think that the solution for your hair dilemma can be found at your own kitchen?

How do I apply this? Well this will vary on your own preference but for me, I just leave it in my hair overnight. Yes overnight! Simply put an ample amount on your palm, rub it and massage it on your hair and on the hair strands.Use comb to scatter the oil evenly on your hair strands. Leave it overnight and wash your hair in the morning with shampoo and conditioner. You will notice how your hair has become more manageable, soft and shiny. I do this twice to thrice a week depending on your preference. But since my hair is kinda dry caused by hair rebonding and hair coloring, I prefer using olive oil twice to thrice a week.

The bottle in the picture only costs me Php 100-130. Affordable it is. Splurging yourself in a salon is not bad though but saving some bucks is good right? So I am recommending Olive Oil as part of your hair care ladies. Try this out!

That would be all ladies till next DIY and natural beauty discoveries :-)
