Rich in vitamins A, E, and antioxidants, olive oil helps protect the keratin in hair and seals in moisture.
If you deal with brittle ends or frizzy curls that feel more like steel wool than they do soft locks, olive oil can help soften your hair, making it more pliable.
Olive oil has been desired for its natural hair softening benefits, rather than having to use chemically-laden ingredients that are added to cheap hair conditioners. Many people who use olive oil on their hair will notice that it not only becomes softer and more manageable but that their hair grows in much thicker and denser.

This oil is also great for making your hair feel softer. Argan oil has scientifically proven to be a good product for hair re-growth and cell regeneration.
BLACK SEED OIL
