Posted on June 15 2016
Olive Oil for hair ? More like I love oil. If you don’t, I’ll tell you why you should. Olive oil is the cream of the crop, the best of the best, the crème de la crème… okay you get it.
Olive Oil Facts
Despite all the fuss about the use of fats and oils, olive oil is one of the healthiest types of fat there is. It contains monounsaturated fat, which controls LDL, a bad cholesterol and increase HDL, a good cholesterol. Ultimately, the good fat in olive oil can potentially lower your risk of heart disease. According to the F.D.A., the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, two tablespoons a day of olive oil are the best results for a healthy heart. Easy peasy!
Olive Oil for Hair Benefits
80% of olive oil is filled with oleic acid, which penetrates the skin allowing oil to heal damage, reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture. It is naturally consumed with anti-aging antioxidants and hydrating squalene, a specific chemical compound responsible for healing properties.
It also has so many uses you can even stir up your own moisturizers from home. During the dry and colder months, olive oil best suits your skin. You can even have fun with it and throw some herbs in the oil to create a soothing scent on your skin. You always want to smell good for your boyfriend … or just your friends, right?
It’s a great product to replenish moisture back into your hair, leaving it healthy and shiny. Since it is rich in vitamins A, E and antioxidants, it protects keratin in your hair. For example if you’ve fallen victim to a dry scalp, which many if not all of us have at one point during season change, then olive oil treatments are the best route to regain your healthy scalp.
Although your first thought would be, “doesn’t oil make you look greasy?” Think again!
