Olive oil has many uses for natural skin and hair care. Olive oil is made from pressed olives and comes in many ranks as refined or extra virgin. This refers to oil processing. Extra virgin is the purest because it contains no chemicals. This is best for cooking but any type of olive oil will best serve for hair products and skin care.

Combine 3 tablespoons of olive oil with 2 tablespoons of honey to create a soothing hair mask. Mix and apply on hair and scalp. Wrap in a plastic cap and cover for 30 minutes. Wash and comb your hair like usual.
Apply hot oil for shine
Make a weekly hot oil treatment by mixing 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 3 tablespoons of coconut oil. Heat the oil in a pan in a water bath (warm, not hot). Massage the hair and scalp and cover with a plastic cap. Wrap a towel around the cap and let the treatment act for 30 minutes. You’ll have a soft, shiny hair and you’ll reduce frizz.

Apply a deep conditioner once a month for hair shine. Combine 1/2 ounce (15 ml) of olive oil, 2 ounces (60 ml) of apple cider vinegar, 2 ounces (60 ml) of aloe gel and one ounce (30 grams) of powdered milk. Massage your wet hair with this mixture and cover it with a plastic cap. Wrap a hot towel over the cap and leave it for 30 minutes.
