Olive Oil

Written by Laquita

imageOlive oil seals in moisture, conditions, and improves the strength and elasticity of your hair, it also helps with dry, itchy scalp and kills head lice. Olive oil can be applied to dampened ends to seal in moisture as an effective way to prevent split ends. Mix olive oil with your favorite conditioner, and use it as a deep conditioning treatment.

Olive oil is the only vegetable oil that can be consumed as it is – freshly pressed from the fruit. It has a high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidative substances. Olive oil also protects against heart disease by controlling LDL cholesterol levels, while raising HDL cholesterol levels.

Store olive oil in a cool and dark place, tightly sealed, because when exposed to oxygen, light or high temperatures the oil can easily go rancid.

Recipes

Honey & Olive Oil Hair Mask
Mix ½ cup honey and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Work a small amount at a time through hair until coated. Cover hair with a shower cap; leave on 30 minutes. Shampoo well and rinse. Remember your final rinse should be done with cool water to close the hair cuticle.
