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.
