Olive Oil Conditioner

Filed Under: Uncategorized

This is my first foray into the world of “beauty secrets”.

Today’s installment is a simple, tried and true edition.

Olive Oil.

I know you’re thinking, what?! Olive oil? What the hell am I supposed to do with olive oil other than cook with it?

I’ve got two things for you right off of the bat: hair conditioner and cuticle conditioner.

Wash your hair like you normally do. Once your lovely locks are squeaky clean, saturate your hair with warm olive oil. Let the stuff set for ten minutes and then wash out.

You will be amazed at how soft it leaves your hair.

Once you’re done with your hair, check out your nails. Notice how your cuticles are softer and your nails have a nice luster to them?

You have olive oil to thank for that.


If you are inflicted blessed with a baby who has cradle cap, olive oil is your new best friend.

Toss out the bottles of pre-made “miracle” cures and slather your progeny’s head with olive oil. Rub it in really well to lift up the dead skin and then shampoo like normal.

It took me two applications and Cara was cradle cap free.


  1. i knew about olive oil as a hair conditioner, have been using it since I was a pre-teen. My hair is super soft till today. I also used it on my babies to clear cradle cap. Works perfectly. Didn’t about the nails. I’ll have to try it.

  2. I used it for cradle cap, never thought about my own hair.


    • LOL You’re such a dork. And I’m pretty sure that’s why I like ya.

      You can also use Crisco but that’s a HUGE PITA to get out.
