To think that a hair remedy will just be lying in our kitchen. Olive oil known as liquid gold is an oil popular in the middle east pressed from the fruits of the olive tree and it is deserving of its name as liquid gold for its ability to solve numerous health problems including the promotion of healthy and luscious hair.
I have known all this while that olive oil is essential to have in a kitchen and there are many health benefits that can be gotten from it, a few of which are;
- Improve blood cholesterol level to help reduce the risk of heart attacks
- It has strong anti-inflammatory properties and can therefore act as pain killers and also reduce fever
- Enhances insulin sensitivity to protect against diabetes
- Reducing the risk of stroke
- It has been proven to help aid weight loss
I could go on and on but would not finish with listing the health benefits of olive oil; but who would have thought that despite its numerous health benefits, olive oil would turn out to also be a hair remedy. Well, this 28-day study shows the end results of using olive oil for your hair.
It is every girl’s dream to have healthy and luscious hair and due to this, there are a number of products out on the market with the purpose of helping achieve this.
The question is, how many of these products work though and which of them is good for your type of hair. You know there are different types of hair; there is fine/straight, curly, wavy, coily, etc. among others. Each hair has treatments and styles that are suitable for it.
So, first off, make sure you know what type your hair is and follow treatments that are suitable for it to avoid damage.
Olive oil as a hair product works best for dry hairs and it is not advisable to use it on fine or straight hairs. The reason for this is that olive oil serves to moisturize the hair and though it is a good hair care routine, too oily hair will lead to hair conditions such as dandruff.
It is therefore important to note that if your hair becomes oily easily, using less heavy oil such as argan oil will be the best choice for your hair. I know, olive oil works wonders and that you want to try but first think about the condition of your hair; it might work wonders for others but end up damaging yours.
