8 Reasons Olive Oil Is Perfect For Plaits

 

I’m obsessed with oils — and olive oil is by far my favorite, especially for our plaits.

 

Here’s why…

 

1. Light Scent

 

Olive oil doesn’t have a strong smell, so it doesn’t compete with our other products.

 

2. It Can Be Mixed

 

We sometimes add essential oils for additional benefits.

 

3. It’s Natural

 

Olive oil is easily accessible (found right in our kitchen) and safe enough to eat — I trust it for our crowns.

 

4. All-In-One Oil

 

I love any product that serves multiple purposes. 

 

While other products can clog and suffocate our pores, olive oil absorbs into the skin as well as the hair. 

 

5. It Allows Slip

 

After coating my hands with oil, taking down braids is faster and easier.

 

6. It Conditions The Hair

 

Our hair remains soft and protected when we seal our ends with olive oil.

 

7. It’s Light

 

Different oils have different thicknesses to serve different purposes. 

 

Olive oil is strong enough to seal our hair and light enough to penetrate our strands.

 

8. It's Naturally Shiny

 

Since it easily absorbs, it helps our hair shine from the inside out.

 

Do you use oil for your plaits? What is your favorite hair oil? What is it good for?
