Olive oil has been suggested to be an effective natural treatment for dry hair. Using olive oil before shampooing is a cheap way to condition dry or damaged hair to leave it silky and manageable. Many believe that is a good alternative to expensive salon products and is an easy way to save some money and add moisture back into your hair.

In order to use an olive oil treatment you will first need to part your hair down the centre. Next, pour approximately one tablespoon of olive oil into the palm of your hand and rub your hands together. This will ensure that you have an even spread of olive oil across your hands. If the oil is dripping off your hands then you have used too much. Let the oil drip off until your palms are just covered, almost as if you were apply sun cream. Then, apply the oil to one side of your hair at a time, starting from half way down and working your way to the ends. Avoid putting too much oil, or any, on the roots of your hair as this will make them greasy. Try to only apply the olive oil to the parts of your hair that are particularly dry. Once the oil is rubbed in, place a plastic shower cap over your hair and blow dry for ten minutes. This will help the oil work its way into your hair and makes it easier to remove. After this, shampoo your hair as normal, using conditioner if your hair is really dry or damaged. Finally, style your hair as normal.

This inexpensive olive oil treatment can be used as and when you feel you need it. Some people suggest that the oil can also be used to treat dandruff, lice and even hair loss.

Dryness of hair is one of the most common problems prevalent in every part of the world. The reason for which could be varied; hereditary, too much exposure to heat or too much use of shampoo.

Olive oil provides one of the best treatments for dry hair. Regular use of olive oil keeps the scalp supple, a pre-requisite for healthy hair. It not only moistens hair but helps in getting rid of frizz too, and also it is a good natural conditioner. When you mix it with almond oil and castor oil and massage on the scalp before going to bed, you can get rid of even a chronic problem of dandruff. Besides, olive oil is good for overall health when used in cooking food.

Of course, As long as it is oil treatment. If you don't use some oils in your hair that's why it will lead you to dandruff.  My boyfriend also has dandruff and I advised him to use Lemon and yes it is effective!

Yes, Olive oil is a
great oil to use on your hair for dryness. I have used it. It nourishes your
hair and gives smooth and silky hair. Massage your scalp gently for five to 10
minutes. Cover your hair with a warm towel and leave the oil on overnight, or
at least for 30 minutes.
