I have suggested in many remedies to use olive oil for hairs and as well as face too. One of the best oils to use for hairs and face is olive oil. Olive oil is conserved as the world’s best oil to use on hairs for various problems. There are N number of people who uses olive oil to treat hair fall, dry scalp, split ends, dandruff, and other hair related problems. The main reason why olive oil is healthy and should be used for hairs is because this oil is obtained directly for the fruits of the tree, olives.

If your hairs are thin then olive oil is for you. There are lots of reasons such as for hair fall, thinning of hair and more; these problems are very common hair problems in both men and women. Sometimes these problems may cause due to genetics or hereditary reasons, but often it can be caused by pollution also, the misuse of hair care products, frequent coloring, poor diet, and certain medications or over processing of the hair will be the reasons.

When olive oil is compared to other oils, it helps to cure all types of hair problems which other oils are not able to do so. One of the best ways, the olive oil will help when used on hairs is to preserve hair and make it thicker, fuller and more lustrous. Olive oil for hair problems such as hair growth is been used from centuries, and there are many happy people who say it definitely works and gives great results. Olive oil, especially when heated, will provide deep conditioning for the hairs and makes hairs soft, and that can lead to a healthier scalp and more hair on head.


Olive oil can be used directly or added with masks or packs. To know more benefits of olive oil for hairs  keeping on reading:-

1. Olive oil helps to Prevent DTH Hormones Production. A hormone called DTH is the reason in many cases of hair loss, as it causes the hair follicle shaft to narrow. Olive oil actually helps in a great way to stop this from happening, which means you can hold onto your hair for longer period.

2. Olive oil Promotes Healthy Scalp. Olive oil is loaded with antioxidants, which helps to keep the skin of the scalp in better shape. It can even reduce the damage caused by hair care products or overuse of styling products or damage caused by use of chemicals.

3. Olive oil has the main benefit to Condition the Hairs Naturally. Olive oil will make your hairs shiny and soft. That’s why it is been used from centuries as a natural hair conditioner.

4. Olive oil helps to fight off Fungi and Bacteria, such as dandruff, head lice, itchy scalp and other adverse conditions of scalp and hairs and the reasons to hair loss. Fortunately, olive oil fights off all of these things, helping keep your scalp and hairs healthier.

5. Olive oil helps to Improve Blood Circulation. Olive oil massages on scalp and hairs will improve the blood circulation of scalp. This increased blood flow can stimulate the follicles, which then produce thicker strands.

Olive oil used alone is an excellent way to prevent or slow hair loss and gives great hairs. But if you add other oils along with olive oil, such as almond oil, rosemary oil, coconut oil, mustard oil, vitamin e oil, castor oil or cayenne pepper, you can get even better results.
