Olive oil is rich in nutrients such as Vitamin E, Niacin, Vitamin D, and Biotin. All of these nutrients are extremely advantageous for hair growth. When olive oil is applied to the scalp, these nutrients are absorbed by the hair roots, thus preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth.

Olive oil is a natural cleanser and can help to prevent the formation of DHT, which is a hormone that promotes facial hair growth but can have an adverse affect on hair on the scalp.
DHT causes the hair follicle shaft to decrease in size until the hair produced is extremely thin or altogether non-existent.

Any hair loss which occurs due to skin infections can be treated with regular application of olive oil.
