Why Olive Oil Is Perfect For Hair Growth

In the kitchen, in the cupboard, on the left, right next next to the black pepper in front of my curry powder, that’s where you will find the olive oil, no matter what time of year it is, or what day, I always have a bottle. That is not the only place I keep some though, I also have a stash in the bathroom in an applicator bottle for oil rinses or if I feel like ditching the lotion and act brand new with my skin care on some evenings.

In comparison to coconut oil, olive oil might run a close second but you are still winning if you use it often and make it a significant part of your hair regimen. For one if you have fine hair like me, having a lighter oil around can be beneficial, and its multi purpose which is always great for busy people.

But what about hair growth, can olive oil help with growth at all and if so how? Olive oil is known to make hair appear thicker and shiny but other than that it has been used historically as a growth aid and growth retention aid. Heated olive oil is very good not only for your hair but for your scalp as well, facilitating an atmosphere for great hair growth.

Here is how:

Prevents DTH Hormone Production – DHT is pretty much what causes hair loss so anything to limit its production is a plus. DHT reduces the shaft of the follicle which will lead to hair fall. Olive oil stops this from happening so that you keep more hair on your head as a result.


Olive oil is vitamin rich – The oil in its purest form has a ton of antioxidants that are great for your hair, scalp and skin. A healthy scalp is where great growth begins so when you feed the scalp with vitamin rich products growth is a given.

Olive 0il fights fungi and bacteria – Some of the biggest growth impediments are bacteria and fungi that can be found on the scalp in the flakes, bumps. lice dandruff and other scalp issues. Olive oil can help to fight these things to give your scalp time to breath and facilitate great hair growth.

Olive oi including a lot of oilsl does nothing but leave my hair dry and brittle over time. I believe that this happens because oils create barrier so it’s locks the current moisture in but doesn’t let additional moisture in when needed.. I’m just not a fan of them at all for my hair but for my skin….HEAVENLY……I use organic unrefined coconut in my including face evey morning after I wash it and skin is smooth and very radiant. I have no break outs at all. I have oliy skin naturally but the coconut oil works wonders for me.
