Olive oil for shiny hair and nails
OLIVE oil has been used as a beauty product since the time of the Pharaohs in Ancient Egypt. Thanks to the global village, you can find it on local shop shelves here too.
Olive oil for dry hair
If you have rough hair and need a good deep condition, spritz some olive oil on the ends of your hair.
Massage in gently, comb through and wrap hair in a warm towel and wait 20 minutes and then shampoo out.
Tip: If you have dandruff, put your hair in a shower cap and sleep overnight. The olive oil will moisturise your scalp, helping you to deal with those flakes.
Olive oil for hands and nails At the end of the day, take a tiny dash of oil and rub it gently into your hands, taking care to massage nails and cuticles. Leave for 15 minutes, then gently push up your cuticles with an orange stick.
Pat your hands dry. Buff your nails with a chamois cloth (look in the car section of the supermarket).
