Oh...the things you can do with olive oil!! In my opinion, you should always have some Olive Oil
available for your use in hair care. There are so many benefits
including shinier hair, help for damaged hair as well as curing a dry
scalp and alleviating dandruff! Not only that, but you can also use olive oil
in hair care recipes by mixing it with honey and eggs! Or how about
just mixing it with conditioner?
