The benefits of olive oil for the hair are timeless. Olive oil is nature’s gift to humanity. A single ingredient, so powerful, that can benefit us in so many ways and in so many areas.
Why Olive Oil?
Rich in vitamins A, E, and antioxidants, olive oil helps protect the keratin in the hair and seals in moisture.
Olive oil can remove the buildup of sebum that impedes the formation of new hair follicles and hinders hair growth.
Since Olive Oil is a natural (hair) softener, not only it soften your hair making it look healthy, shiny and vibrant, it also offers great help with dandruff, since it provides with all the moisture your scalp needs.
As previously mentioned, DHT ( a hormone that makes hair follicle shafts shrink ) causes hair to grow in thinner and thinner which eventually lead to them breaking off before they can even grow to a reasonable length.
Olive Oil is here to the rescue since it can reduce the production of DHT and in combination with other ingredients ( such as Masticha Chiou, coconut oil, avocado oil etc ), can play a massive role in hair growth and health restoration of the scalp.
