Olive Oil in skin care


Olive Oil skin care benefits

Olive oil is very popular and well known natural oil that a lot of people cook with. Olive oil is not only inexpensive and but as I mention before good enough for to consume .

Olive oil is moisturizing for hair and skin, better to used extra virgin olive oil for all the maximum  benefits. Olive oil can rejuvenate dry skin just apply directly to your skin.

Two Home Remedy for hair Shedding

This is actually about one solution but two different methods . I previously wrote about this on my bubblews blog read here .

Adding garlic to your deep conditioner . This will help to reduce excess shedding .

Crush couple cubes of garlic or you can add garlic powder . You can pour the conditioner you plan on using for this treatment in a separate container then add your garlic powder .

You can do this treatment over night , meaning letting it sit on your head with plastic shower cap for the night or in the morning for couple hours .

Rinse the garlic conditioner from your hair and then wash away scent with mild shampoo .

Now conditioner your hair with your regular shampoo .

Follow this treatment for couple days and you will have your result in no time .

If you have a bald spot rub cut garlic right on it twice a day until it show improvement .

Garlic can prevent or reduce hair loss by providing nourishment to the hair follicles which may be blocked by DHT and sometimes killing germs that may have infect the scalp .

Here is option two 

Making garlic oil

This is done by also cutting the garlic in cubes and place them in a glass container with top , add your virgin olive oil to the garlic cubes .

Leave this for up to 2 days before adding to your scalp .

Garlic powder can also be used in the same way .

Do this every other night and rinse your hair with conditioner the next day to get rid of the scent . Although the scent wont be as strong because its mix with olive oil .

Do this for two weeks nightly or every other night before bed and you will see instant improvement .


Note : Garlic will not cure all hair loss . ..

How I used Each Natural / Essential Oil

Coconut Oil - I like using this as a pre-poo treatment because it really penetrating the hair shaft, nourishing your hair fro inside out . Its light on your hair and has moisturizing properties . I do pre-poo treatment once a month are whenever necessary . I do sometimes used this oil as a sealant .

Olive Oil - Olive oil can be used as a natural relaxer ( Natural Hair Relaxer : Olive Oil ), I have done this  a few times and it really help my hair cuticle to lay down . It is moisturizing and its not too light on the hair , which is good when you want your hair to kinda lay down . This oil I really love it has so many great benefits, read more Benefits of Olive Oil in Hair . I also used this a sealant .

Castor Oil - I love using castor oil on my scalp , and I also use it to make a slick pony tail and help my edges stay slick and flat since it really moisturized them .  This may takes sometime to absorbed in hair like , fine to medium strands but once it absorbed your hair stays moisturized for days . It also help thicken hair so I really try to used this on my edges more because I have fine strands at that area  , I like slick styles and you want to keep your hairline healthy .

Carrot Oil - This oil I used mostly for  hot oil treatments , sometimes I used it alone are blend with my other oil . This is a light oil easily absorbed , great for scalp massages also  .
