    Though iam a regular with coconut oil,i use Olive oil sometimes for my hair.I have always felt that Olive oil gives an added shine & softness to the hair.

    What brand do you all generally use?We get Olitalia brand of ordinary olive oil
    in the depatmental stores in Chennai.

    I am using oilve oil for past 6 months. I dont see any difference in color of my skin. It gives smoothness really a good moisturiser. But only drawback I feel is hair is growing very fast on my hands, legs and face. So I have given a break for olive oil. Same thing is happening applying baby oil also. Pls give me some tips to stop this problem.

    When do you use olive oil as a moisturizer. Before bath or After bath? Please let me know.

    I use olive oil as a massage oil. I can't use it for face as I'm getting pimple whenever I use it on my face.

    Uma,
    My body temperature is little high always and when I used Olive oil regularly even I faced the same problem. So I mix little coconut oil to it and then use it for skin and hair massage once in a week.

    dear ilites,

    my experience is, olive oil is gr8 on hair..got smooth and shiny hair..but i did a mistake..after readin good effects of olive oil in a site,i started using it on my feet alone while goin out..within a week..my feet became dark..the fact is any type oil will make ur skin dark when u go under sun.

    as far as i know,oil and lemon juice should be applied and washed atleast before 4hrs u go under sun coz these r photo sensitive..

    thts y its a common practise tht ppl massage their body with olive oil on sundays before bath.coz there is no need to go out..
    i think wearing full sleeves and shoes which will not be exposin ur skin wont be a prob even if u ve olive oil while under sun.
    hope this helps...

    thnx,
    joie
