Olive oil: restorative and nutritive properties
The benefits of olive oil on dry or damaged hair are not negligible. Indeed, olive oil is renowned for its restorative and nutritive properties on hair. Highly concentrated in polyphenols, it is one of the most nourishing oils for the hair and moisturises it in depth. Polyphenols make olive oil your number one ally for your health. They also act on dry hair by nourishing it and limiting breakage. Olive oil is therefore the key ingredient for any care ritual for dry or damaged hair.
Moreover, olive oil has a strong antioxidant capacity and promotes hair growth. It is an ideal oil for treating hair loss, dandruff and itchy scalp. Its high antioxidant content allows it to protect your lengths, ends and scalp while promoting hair growth.
Hair that has been damaged by over-styling, colouring or chemical treatments can be revitalised by using olive oil. Similarly, if you have coloured hair, olive oil will help you maintain your colour. It will make your hair brighter and the colour more intense.
Finally, olive oil is a miracle solution to frizz and will make your hair softer and silkier. If you have curly/curly hair, it will be deeply moisturised and your curls will also be better defined.
How to use olive oil on dry hair?
Regularly maintaining your dry or damaged hair with nourishing care is essential for healthy hair. La Compagnie de l’Huile d’Olive reveals all its tips for using olive oil on your dry hair!
Add olive oil to your hair products
To take advantage of the benefits of olive oil on your dry/damaged hair, you can add extra virgin olive oil to your hair products. Simply add one to two spoonfuls of olive oil to your products and mix well before applying as normal!
Apply it directly to your dry hair
Similarly, you can use olive oil directly on your hair as a natural conditioner or by making an oil bath. An oil bath is best if you have time to spare to give your hair the best possible moisture. To do this, pour extra virgin olive oil into a bowl and apply it to damp, untangled hair. Leave it on for at least an hour and then wash your hair as normal, with an emphasis on rinsing.
You can also use it directly on dry, brittle or damaged hair as a leave-in treatment and protection against styling appliances.
Make a homemade hair mask with olive oil
Olive oil can also be used as an ingredient when making a homemade hair mask.
Here is an example of a mask that is ideal for deeply nourishing dry, damaged hair. Mix 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with 1 tablespoon of honey and a beaten egg. Apply the mask to your hair before shampooing. Leave it on your hair for 20 minutes before rinsing. Shampoo your hair as usual to remove excess oil from your hair.
