I have used it on my hair because it allegedly makes it grow faster lol, but never on my skin it could cause acne since it clogs the pores

Oh yes I do!

I use olive oil for my hair twice a week before washing it, and it makes my hair much softer. It is excellent for your hair especially if it is dry (and many other things besides - skin, health...)

You can make many masks with it (hair masks) - I like using it mixed with two tablespoons of mayonnaise (gross I know, but trust me) - and a tablespoon or more of oil depending on your hair length/thickness. Stir it in and apply to your hair for half an hour. Wash off with shampoo in the shower. There is no smell, and you'll notice that your hair is much softer.

You can also add an egg to the mix.

I recommend it for anyone, no matter the texture of their hair. Straight, wavy, curly, kinky/textured, thin, thick...It works for all.

In this aspect, Each of them are having various opinions on this. Conditioner and olive oil are both good for hair.

I have an SLS-free olive oil soap with oatmeal. My shampoo is rosemary, aloe, & tea tree oil that is also safe to use on dogs to alleviate flea itch (but rosemary & aloe are toxic to cats).

It's hard finding SLS-free stuff....Had to get it from one of those ridiculously overpriced organic stores.

I prefer olive oil in a frying pan. But i had no idea it could be used like this. Usually It's just some shampoo and I'm done.

Occasionally I'll put some in my hair and just comb it idly while I'm preoccupied watching something. It is indeed good for the hair.

When I buy groceries I get coconut oil, olive oil and almond oil. I'll use them for cooking, salad dressing and some for use on my skin and hair. I've got a dry skin condition (eczema/dermatitis) so I need to use doc recommended emollient creams and bath oils. My hair is also very dry. The only way it ever gets oily is if I put lots of oil in it. If I run low on the doc recommended stuff then a natural emollient bath oil is one or more of the oils I have. You can get these oils in the cosmetic sections of shops but they tend to add fragrances to them which mean I can't use the because I'm allergic to all those added fragrances. They also cost more per ml from the cosmetic shops/section than they do from the regular cooking sections/shops.

I'm allergic to soap and shampoos. I haven't been able to use them since I was 12. I can have a nice luxurious soak in a warm bath that has a little oil in it. All I need to do is dunk my head in, massage head, finger detangle hair and my hair is washed, skin cleaned without getting too dry.

I've heard of those egg concoctions on hair. I draw the line at that, no eggs or even shop bought mayonnaise on my head. I have tried deep conditioning with banana puree. My hair smelled so delicious I wanted to eat it That's the only way I'll have a chance of having fragrances in my hair. The coconut also has a nice smell that I like.

There are plenty of other oils, shampoos, lotions, ect that will provide the same effect. I use olive oil in my cooking but thats about as far as i go.

Then again i have naturally SHINING! hair (bad pun ignore it lol) i usually keep it short and well thats that.
