Do you use olive oil on your curly hair? My natural hair absolutely loves Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or EVOO as the kids call it). I tried the whole coconut oil craze, but after continued use, my curls were not responding. EVOO, on the other hand, works on my strands like MAGIC. Every time.
If your natural hair is like mine, (type 4a/4b, thick, and high porosity), you might also benefit from using olive oil. If your hair is thin and/or low porosity, EVOO may not be the best choice. As it’s a heavier oil, it might not soak in well, and could leave your curls feeling heavy and greasy. But I know a lot of people with low porosity curls who love EVOO, so give it a try for yourself!
