Olive oil is used in all the hair products including masks, shampoos, conditioners, serums, etc. Olive oil is highly nourishing and hydrating in nature. If you use olive oil regularly on your strands, you would not need to head towards salons for hair spa and other expensive hair treatments. Olive oil has natural conditioning properties, and above all, it does not contain any harsh and irritating chemicals which, otherwise, may cause any harm to scalp.
Fatty acids present in olive oil play a pivotal role in protecting your hair and keep them healthy always. Ironing, crimping, and using all sorts of chemical based wax and hair setters could destroy the outer skin of hair and damage them. Olive oil covers the outer layer and gives them strength along with making them softer, shinier, and smoother.
