Olive oil benefits for hair

Olive oil benefits for hair

We curl, dye, straighten, bleach and blow-dry. And we have a huge array of hair styling products to help us look polished rain or shine. Undeniably a gorgeous hairdo can make you look instantly put together even when you don’t have time to spend on your makeup or fancy outfits. But all this attention takes its toll on your hair and doing some damage control –or even better, preventing the damage, is necessary to keep your looks looking cool and wispy. 

Olive oil will help you combat all your hair worries and make sure your hair stays healthy and glossy.

Here’s how:

A feel-good look-good diet:

A healthy balanced diet will help provide your hair with the nutrients it needs. So beauty does come in a bottle, but surprise, it’s an olive oil bottle we’re talking about. The fatty acids and antioxidants in olive oil can improve the texture and appearance of hair. It’s protective and nutritional qualities can make your hair look and feel healthier while you enjoy your Greek Lentil Salad or your Olive Oil and Honey Glaze Quince.


Harsh weather conditions and styling tools can strip our hair of necessary oils. By applying a few drops of olive oil to your conditioner or indulging in a luxurious DIY olive-oil based hair mask will rehydrate your hair and keep them shiny and healthy.

Stimulating Hair Growth

Gently massaging your hair and scalp with olive oil will improve the blood flow to the hair follicles which will be in turn stimulated to grow thicker strands of hair, hence potentially doubling hair growth. Applying an olive oil mask once a week works wonders and you will soon start noticing a difference as the hair follicles are getting stronger, increasing the lifespan of each hair and making it seem like your hair is growing more quickly.

Scalp Health

Dandruff, irritated or itchy scalp are common hair issues these days. Soothe and comfort a dry scalp by massaging a generous dose of warm olive oil into your roots all the way down to the ends of your hair. Put on a cute shower cap and let it soak in for 20 minutes, then rinse with a mild shampoo.

Split Ends

Getting your hair trimmed every 6-10 weeks is a good start to keep the split ends at bay but preventing the damage is even better. Apply a few drops to the last inches of your hair to smooth the existing split ends and deeply condition them to prevent further damage. Keep up the good work and soon you’ll be split-ends-free.

Revive your hair with the most natural, safe and effortless way! Hair flip and see you around!
