The Beauty of Olive Oil for Gorgeous Hair Styling
Homer called olive oil “liquid gold,” and it’s said Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom, gave Athens olive oil as a gift. This is fitting, as this nourishing fatty acid-rich oil is a true gift to the hair. Loaded with good-for-you substances like oleic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, linolenic acid, polyphenols and squalene, we agree with Homer’s interpretation of this beautiful, gold elixir. Here’s why we love it as an essential ingredient in our products:
Omega rich, olive oil moisturizes hair and promotes growth, making it ideal for damaged hair in need of repair. Like many oils, olive will slow the loss of moisture from the hair, so strands stay moisturized and healthy. This has the benefit of reducing damage, as well: By limiting the absorption of water, hair is less likely to experience fatigue and split ends. Fatty acids and Vitamin E help battle dandruff and irritation while adding protection against environmental toxins, too! Stearic acids condition and protect hair from damage without diminishing luster or adding weight, an added bonus for dry and damaged locks.
