Extra-virgin olive oil is best for your hair, as it contains vitamin E and several other essential nutrients that provide deep treatment to your hair and scalp.

The vitamin E in olive oil helps improve your hair’s elasticity to give you soft and bouncy hair, while also preventing hair loss from breakage. Since the oil works to restore your scalp’s health and deeply nourish the hair follicles, it boosts hair growth and prevents hair loss by strengthening your hair’s roots.

Due to its moisturizing properties, olive oil also helps alleviate symptoms of dry or itchy scalp. Furthermore, it is an excellent remedy to tame frizzy hair. Along with hydrating each hair strand, it also gives your hair added luster and volume.

Whether you have straight hair or corkscrew curls, olive oil suits all hair types, making your hair soft and glossy for a rich, vibrant look.

The quantities used here are for shoulder-length hair. You can increase or decrease them, as needed for your hair length. Without further ado, read on and try out these olive oil hair masks that will fix all your hair issues.
