Extra Virgin Olive Oil

I ran out of Coconut Oil, so for a replacement I got some Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  My hair would get a little hard this winter(I live in New England) after applying Coconut Oil(I believe it's because it solidifies at low temps), so I thought EVOO was a good replacement.  
I originally wanted to purchase Avocado Oil, but that cost about $15.00 for 8 oz and the EVOO was a lot less expensive($6.00 for 16 oz @ Stop and Shop).

Extra Virgin Olive Oil:
  • Is extracted without heat and chemical processing, which is why it has a high level of nutrients
  • Is Rich in high levels of fatty acids and Vitamin E which is great for hair moisturizing
  • Makes hair shiny and soft
  • Is rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols are water soluble substances, which are usually found in the waste water, after olive processing. These polyphenols have anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, due to which Olive Oil for the hair acts wonders.
  • DOES penetrate the hair shaft, which makes it an exceptional oil because of the extra conditioning benefits
How I use it:
  • Prepoo and/or Hot Oil Treatment
  • Sealant- after moisturizing
  • Leave-in Conditioner- After using a creamy leave-in
  • to oil my Scalp

Also Great for:
Eye Make-Up Remover
to help Smooth Cuticles
Obviously to cook with
Great to use when Cleaning Make-up Brushes(helps restore softness)
Skin Moisturizer
Softens chapped lips
