Yes, I love olive oil treatments, especially when I use extra virgin olive oil. It is the purest form and it is not too heavy on my hair. Plus, I can mix my essentials oils with it.

The use of essential oil treatments in combination with scalp massage is an effective, all-natural method of promoting hair growth. It works by stimulating blood flow to the scalp and nourishing hair at its roots.

Take the required amount of olive oil in a bowl. If the oil is stored in the refrigerator, keep the bowl (with oil) outside for a while to bring it to room temperature.
Meanwhile, you have to get ready for the oil treatment. It is better to wear some old clothes, as oil spots can ruin clothes. Or else, you can wrap a towel around you.
Brush you hair and part it with a comb. Apply olive oil on your hair with your fingertips. Make sure that you are not using your nails for the task.
Dip the fingertips in the bowl and gently massage the scalp, on both sides of the parting.
Now, make a new parting at a distance of about one or two inches from the first one and repeat the massaging process.
Repeat this, until the entire scalp is covered. You have to apply some oil on the hair too.
After the oiling process is over, you have to cover your head with a towel, in order to keep it warm, so that the oil can be absorbed.
Keep your head covered for about 30 minutes to one hour. Then, unwrap the cover and wash your hair with a mild shampoo. As the hair is oily, you may need more amount of shampoo than you normally use.
For better results, you may steam your hair, before washing it. This is beneficial in preventing the occurrence of dandruff.

I must agree with you, Babygurl. Olive oil has definitely helped me with scalp dandruff and dry hair. But ladies, what should I do with my thinning hair and split ends?
