no.

no offense to anyone, but i'm not one of those people who use egg yolks on my hair or placenta creams on my face.


i'm a very scientific person, i believe good skin/hair is caused by what you eat, so unless i eat healthy things, no matter what sort of creams I use, I will never have good hair/skin just because i focus on the exterior.


and sorry for turning this into an extended discussion when it's really a yes/no question.

No.
Who came up with the idea of applying food to hair?
What about like, chicken stock or peanut butter? Fish oil?
Monounsaturated fat and proteins?

Watch Madagascar 3 Europe's most wanted and focus on the trauma of the tiger and you'll know why it may not be a good idea.

If you don't want to watch it

No, my skin is far too oily as it is. Same goes for my scalp.

Probably the same sort of person who came up with edible shoe polish.

The Ebers papyrus (Egypt, 1550 BC) indicates that the ancient Egyptians combined animal and vegetable oils with alkaline salts to create a soap-like substance.
Soaps were animal and plant-based until the invention of Petroleum-based soap in the early 1900s. Directly using substances such as lard, butter, and goose grease wasn't uncommon, either. It's the same with shampoo.
In fact, using egg was very popular during the Victorian Era.

Isn't the whole point of washing your hair to remove the oil that builds up?...

You put peanut butter on your hair to get gum out of it. If you have siblings, you should know this one.

Yes. Ironically, though, sometimes it takes too much oil away. That's why they have conditioners. Conditioners add a little oil back. Depending on your hair, you may not need to use conditioner or other oil-adding products, but when my hair is long, the ends dry out quick and look scraggly if I don't use a conditioner of some sort. Also, it's a pain in the ass to brush.

I have once, but at the time I used too much and my hair looked disgustingly greasy no matter how many times I washed it. And it was during a school week so I kept my hair in a ponytail which I hate doing. Anyway, never trying it again no matter how many good things I hear about it.

Are you guys using pure olive oil or store-bought olive oil, because depending on where you live, it's likely to have a good percentage of sunflower oil. :'D
