Benefits of EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) for Hair

evoo for hairExtra Virgin Olive Oil, also known as EVOO, is a natural remedy to some hair care issues.  EVOO is wonderful for hair.  Consider using EVOO in the following ways:

For Added Slip – EVOO is an oil that may be added to products to provide extra “slip”, which makes the product go through the strands easier; this makes manipulating the hair easier.

As a Detangler – EVOO may also be used as a detangling agent.  The oil may be applied to the hair, and be worked through your coils in order to make detangling a breeze.

As a Sealant – Extra Virgin Olive Oil may be used to “seal” in moisture that comes from moisturizers in order to give the hair an extra layer of protection.

To Enhance Your Conditioner’s Properties – Your conditioner may be fine on its own, but it may be spectacular once you add in evoo.  Through trial and error you can quickly find out if your hair loves added evoo in your conditioner.

For Oiling the Roots or Scalp – If you have a dry scalp or a low production of sebum, consider oiling the scalp with evoo.

As a Deep Conditioner/Hot Oil Treatment– Let the EVOO sit on the hair with a bag on it…add heat if you like and enjoy an all natural DC or a hot oil treatment.

  • I grew my hair from shoulder length to waist length in two years!!
    I will be sharing how I grew my hair and giving out tips for healthy hair. And please don’t think that your hair cant grow long. I promise you I have the most coarse hair and I was able to do it! It is not about your hair texture… its about being patient and consistent with treating your hair.
