Olive Oil's Miracle..

Hello lovelies, I trust we're good. This post is brought to you courtesy of my long lost love, olive oil.

Olive oil is one of my staple products. I use it to pre-shampoo and deep condition. However for the past 3 or so months, there hasn't been any around in the house and I didn't get around to buying some for myself. I would just pre-shampoo with coconut oil, amla oil or sunflower oil instead. Then I would add vatika oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil or castor oil to my deep conditioner.

Well the olive oil is back again and i've been using it to pre-shampoo and deep condition. My hair has been noticeably softer and fluffier these past few wash days. It usually comes out soft from dc-ing....but just not AS SOFT as now....

I did some googling to confirm my suspicions and found that its benefits include:

-moisturising the scalp and prevents dandruff
-adds shine
-softens hair
-reduces split ends
-adds weight and moisture to hair because it is one of the few oils that actually penetrate the strand (making it ideal for winter)
-rich in vitamins E, A and antioxidants thus strengthening hair and encouraging growth
*You can use any olive oil that is made for cooking in your hair, that's the real good stuff.

I guess sometimes you never know how much good a product is doing you until it's gone and then reintroduced. I'm not saying bye to it anytime soon...


  1. olive oil is my face natural oil, both for hair and my skin. for my skin i mix it with almond oil

  2. sorry i meant to say fave not face

  3. My sister loves it for her face too. I usually use grapeseed oil for my face and skin. No harm in giving olive a whirl too.
