Have you heard before about Hair Masks with Olive Oil?
Lately, we are seeing big brands of cosmetic products using Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and talking about their magnificent influence on hair.
Olive oil is not only used as an improvement for food and diet. It is said to have a lot of different applications, and it is especially known for these benefits in areas where it is historically produced.
In this blog, I am trying to deepen knowledge of olive oil’s praxis to citizens of areas where it is not as commonly used.
In previous posts, we discussed the use of olive oil for babies and children; how to use it to help the animals living around us, to understand how to use olive leaves, uses in sexual practices, in beauty treatments, and much more.
Now, in this post I am going to focus on a part of almost everyone’s body: HAIR

USING OLIVE OIL TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR IN SUMMER TIME
Summer time has arrived and this is the time of year that invites you to spend a lot of time out in the fresh air.
However, heat, sun, food and crazy life in general makes our hair lose nutrients and become dehydrated. Hair becomes more brittle and fragile, appearing definitely worse than in spring, for instance. Everyone is wondering: How can I spend time outside, in such a heat, and still look good?
Today I have prepared something special, just to avoid looking unattactive in the summer. Here are my proposed five very easy masks that will definitely help you to improve the health of your hair right now!
0 Advice for before and after.
To avoid staining your clothes, put a towel over your shoulderl to protect them.
For use over oily hair, apply it at a two-finger distance to your scalp.
After every application, you should wash your hair with a mild shampoo, or with your regular shampoo and simply rinse with warm water.
1 Hair Masks with Olive Oil, eggs and mayonnaise
Whisk an egg in a bowl, when it is smooth, add two tablespoons of mayonnaise to one teaspoon of EVOO. The mask is ready. Apply to the hair and leave for 30 minutes . Then wash it to remove the mask.
This recipe is superb for dry hair and it guarantees quick recovery. Use it once a week and the result will be spectacular.
2 Hair Masks with Olive Oil, eggs and honey
Beat an egg and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and two tablespoons of honey. Rub the mixture against your hair and when it’s fully distributed, cover your head with a wet towel. Leave it for half an hour and proceed to clean it as indicated in the previous paragraph.
These three elements nourish the hair considerably, improving its general appearance, strength and elasticity.
3 Hair Masks with Olive Oil and other Oils
Mix one tablespoon each of these oils: olive, almond, safflower, peanut, and sunflower. Mix them all in a bowl and heat them to about 50 degrees, then remove from heat and let cool off for a bit.
Then apply all over the hair and massage it deeply enough to stimulate the scalp. Cover your head with a plastic shower cap . After 30 minutes rinse and wash your hair as noted above.
4.-Hair Masks with Olive Oil, eggs and avocado
Mash an avocado and when a pasty consistency is reached, add a beaten egg and a tablespoon of olive oil. Mix everything and the mask is already done. Run it through all your hair, distributing well. Let it sit for a half an hour and then rinse and wash your hair.
Avocado has many nutritional and rejuvenating properties for hair, and when mixed with olive oil, it is an explosive mixture that will make your hair incredibly beautiful. Let everyone be amazed!
5.-Hair Masks with Olive Oil (alone)
Applying only EVOO to your hair, you will notice immediately how readily your hair and scalp absorb it. Meanwhile, place two wet towels in the microwave for two minutes at medium power, and wrap your hair hair with them. Fix towels with a shower cap so they do not move and leave everything on for 20 minutes, after this time rinse and wash your hair as usual.
This recipe ensures the hydration of your hair and keeps it shiny and strong for a long time. You only have to repeat this once a week.
The benefits you will gain by using these easy, cheap and homemade remedies are:
- Repairing split ends
- Promoting hair growth
- Nourishing and hydrating the scalp
- Improving brightness
- Strengthening hair follicles to prevent hair loss (please read this article from Sarah Hayward in hairlossrevolution.com about hairloss & olive oil)
That’s why it is important to use the most natural products possible, and organic if available.
Note that these remedies are based on the use of raw and preservative-free ingredients.
I hope you can put these tips into practice both before and during the summer so your hair will always be on the forefront.
