Natural Hair Essentials: Olive Oil

In our last ‘Natural Hair Essentials’ segment, I discussed Castor Oil. This week, I will be highlighting the wonders of Olive oil for the hair.

Prior to deciding to go natural, the only experience I’d had with Olive oil and hair was the Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Sheen Spray. When I was relaxed, I used to spray it onto my scalp, as opposed to greasing my scalp, as well as sprayed to add sheen to my hair.   At 15 months into my transition, I incorporate Olive Oil into most every product I use.  Olive oil is a versatile product that can be used in cooking as well as skin and hair care maintenance.
