Make Hair Grow Faster With Olive Oil

Olive is a very popular cooking ingredient and for good reason. It has health benefits that other cooking oils do not provide, such as the high amount of monounsaturated fatty acids that promote the levels of good cholesterol while lowering bad cholesterol in the body. Studies have shown that olive oil helps digestion, helps prevent heart disease, gallstones, ulcer, and certain cancers. In addition, it also contains vitamins and minerals and lots of antioxidants. The good thing about olive oil is that its benefits also extend to the external parts of the body. It is beneficial when applied directly to the skin and can make hair grow faster and stay healthy.

The monounsaturated fats and antioxidants present in olive oil make it ideal for hair because these substances moisturize, protect and nourish your hair. Hair that is healthy is strong and can be kept in any hairstyle, even in a long length. Olive oil attracts moisture in the hair shaft and promotes sheen. It also conditions and improves the elasticity so hair strands do not easily break.

To use as a hair conditioner of treatment to make hair grow faster, it is best to use the cold-pressed types of olive oil. This costs more because cold pressing does not destroy the vitamins, minerals and enzymes found in the olives - the same nutrients that will provide health to your hair. Investing in good quality olive oil is important if you want to get the maximum benefits for your hair. Besides, only a small amount is used every time you treat your hair so one bottle will last a long time and will provide you with several hair treatment sessions before you need to busy another one.

There is one simple treatment that you can do every week that can make your hair healthy. Put approximately 100 milliliters of olive oil in bowl and let it warm just enough for you to be able to apply it to your hair. Get a small piece of cotton ball and dip it in the warm oil. Dab the moistened cotton gently in the scalp, parting the hair gently as you go. When all areas of the scalp have been applied with the oil, give yourself a scalp massage for about five minutes, using your fingertips. After massaging, wrap a towel around your hair to keep it warm and wait for one to two hours. You can then rinse it off with a mild shampoo. This treatment will give you soft and silky hair that is easy to manage. Some like to add fresh rosemary to their hair oil because rosemary is also a good hair tonic. If you choose to do this, you have to let the rosemary steep in the oil for two days before using.

You do not need to spend much to obtain healthy hair. There are many components in your kitchen and garden that you can use to make your own homemade treatment to make hair grow faster. Why not try them? You might just find that they are more effective than those expensive hair care solutions you buy from the store.
