    Olive Oil For Hair Care

    Method 1:

    1. Olive Oil And Avocado


    1 Avocado - ripe preferably
    1 tablespoon olive oil - extra-virgin oil preferably
    1 shower cap

    How To Do:

    Take a knife and slice the avocado and peel off its cover
    Put the avocado in a mixer and blend it to make a fine paste.
    Take the paste in a small-sized bowl.
    Add olive oil to the paste and blend it well.
    Wash your hair with cold water and squeeze out all the water from your hair.
    Now, apply the paste on your damp hair. You can use your hands to apply the paste to your hair. In fact, you will be able to apply the pack to your hair properly with hands instead of a brush.
    Once you apply the pack, just put on the shower cap and let the pack do its work.
    Wait for an hour. You can do your other household chores meanwhile.
    After about an hour, wash off the mask with cold water and use a mild shampoo.
    Let your hair dry naturally. Avoid using a hair dryer, as it will only add to the dryness and will not serve your purpose.

    Repeat this pack 1-2 times a week for the desired results.


    Well, as you might already know, avocados are rich in fatty acids which will help to lock the moisture in your hair. They also strengthen your hair from within. They also help to prevent hair damage due to the antioxidants present in them, leaving your hair smooth, silky, and healthy.
