It is used for cooking, dressing, marinating, dipping and seasoning a variety of dishes. It is actually a fruit juice derived by the pressing of the olive. Ounce per ounce, olive oil has a lower fat content than most other oils.

Olive oil comes in several versions including extra virgin, virgin, pure and light versions. Virgin and extra virgin oils mean that no chemicals were used in the pressing process. Extra virgin has undergone ‘extra’ testing to ensure the purity of the end product. Anything labelled “light” olive oil is not pure olive oil but made from an extraction process involving heat and chemicals. Sometimes you may see the term “pomace” olive oil referring to this type of oil.

Olive oil makes a powerful hair moisturizer and conditioner. Regular use can make your hair look vibrant and bring about a healthy sheen. Depending on your needs, you can use it as a hot oil treatment or even as a finisher. Olive oil blends well with a variety of essential oils that can enhance its properties, such as rosemary for hair growth and lavender for itchy scalp and dandruff.

When choosing the best hair treatment or serum using olive oil, always choose the best you can find. That would be an extra virgin variety of oil.

{googleads}Nappturality recommends a hot oil treatment once every 2 weeks, more frequently if you are experiencing extra dryness and split ends. All you need to do is warm a half cup of olive oil and pour it through your hair, massaging through your hair and scalp. Place a towel around your neck to prevent dripping and place a plastic shower cap on your head for 30 minutes. Shampoo your hair with a sulphate-free shampoo and use a light conditioner. Your hair will instantly feel better and more manageable.

Try adding some olive oil to your regular conditioner to give your hair that extra richness of conditioning.

Olive oil does not make your hair grow faster, but it will nourish your hair and help you prevent breakage, which in turn allows you to retain your length. 

So in summary, using Olive Oil with napptural hair gets the big thumbs up from Nappturality.com
