3 Benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Natural Hair


Have you ever wondered how olive oil can benefit your hair? The benefits of extra virgin olive oil on natural hair are extremely powerful. I’ve found that when I use it once to twice a week, it helps immensely on the overall health of my hair. I’ve found these three to be of exceptional help to my natural 3c/4a hair, which tends to dry in the summer heat. Its benefits include these below:


1. Helps to moisturize dry ends reducing split ends

Extra virgin olive oil is known to help moisturize and reduce split ends. The oil is easily absorbed in your hair no matter how dry, causing split ends to be a thing of the past. You can bag your ends with olive oil and leave it for an overnight treatment to have super manageable hair in the morning.

2.  Great as a leave in for locking in moisture

Apply this oil to your hair and gently massage it into your scalp. Put on a plastic cap for 15-20 minutes. Tada, deep moisturizing from the roots to your ends! You can then wash your hair, or style it, and it will be super smooth and manageable!

3.  Promotes hair growth and healthy locks

Extra virgin olive oil is known to be rich in high levels of mono-unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E, an antioxidant important for hair growth. If you’re struggling with little to no hair growth, this may be the best natural option for you. Also by eating extra virgin olive oil on your foods helps tremendously with growth,  since growth starts from the inside. It’s also great for managing new hair growth too!
