Is Olive Oil Good For Hair Growth?

Updated on May 6, 2014

What Is Olive Oil?

Olive oil is the fruit of olea europaea obtained from the olive as a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean basin. This oil is produced and often pressed by whole olives.

It is constantly used in cooking, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and soaps and as a fuel for most traditional oil lamps.

The oil made by being picked and washed from an olive tree resulting in a paste like substance it is stirred tell the oil droplets are revealed in a process called maceration, before being put in a centrifuge to draw out the oil and water. So After the water is removed, what is left is olive oil.

When it comes to hair and health Zoe Organic Olive Oil is the best in my opinion. But its best if you try it out for yourself.

What Does It Do For Hair To Help It Grow?

Extra olive oil gives total nourishment for all hair types it conditions the hair shaft also creating a rich moisturizing treatment that reaches the cortex of the hair, which is said to promote healthy hair growth.

This oil is great for men and women.

Note: this is not FDA approved, meaning it can not cure any diseases.

The Three Types Of Olive Oil

There are three kinds of olive olive oil: Refined, Unrefined and Extra Virgin.

It is told that 30 percent of all olive oil that is produced results at extracting the oil from the olives. Refining includes using solvents and extremely high heat to minimize the tastes of the oil. It lets people who produce these olives provide less quality oils to customers,and it also is sometimes mixed with different oils from a wide variety of sources, maybe even countries. It is highly noticed because of the bad taste resulting from oxidized olives and a total mass production due to the process of being chemically removed. When you observe and see “Pure Olive Oil” at the store, or a bottle that says simply “Olive Oil,” these are refined.

Unrefined olive oils do not go through a chemical refining process. In unrefined oils, such as “extra virgin” and “virgin” olive oils, it goes no further than extraction and/or bottling. individuals who seldom have use of unrefined olive oils need to use fruit that is in good condition and they also need to carefully observe various factors, due to the fact of the oil not being treated chemically to hide awful tastes that would result from oxidized olives or some other contamination.

An unrefined olive oil that is filled with nice fruity flavors, has no taste “defects” and is defiantly combined with certain benchmarks in its chemical composition which is known to be called “extra virgin.” In extra virgin olive oils, this taste of the fruit is intact, and its quality mainly reflects on the great care along the whole production process. Extra virgin olive oils is awesome it has great amounts of nutrients that the body desires and can provide exceptional health benefits in the long run.

What Are The Benefits Of The Oil?

Heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's, cancers is what some studies show could be avoided and conditions that can be improved by a diet that includes olive oil. It's a great source when replacing other fats like butter, using at least two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil every day, and eating lots of veggies can benefit you a lot.
