Olive oil is rich in vitamins A, B-1, B-2, C, D, E and K and in iron. Olive oil, which is beneficial to the digestive system, does not necessarily keep you thin; it contains just as many calories as other oils (9cal/g).

Olive oil acts as a mild laxative, is a friend to the intestine and an enemy of ulcers and gastritis. Olive oil is a good tonic, with specific benefits for people suffering from heart disease.

Olive oil has been regarded as the "beauty oil". The body's cells incorporate the valuable fatty acids from the oil, making arteries more supple and skin more lustrous. The amount of oleic acid in olive oil is about the same as that found in a mother's milk and is thus the best growth supplement for infants.

Drunk before a meal, olive oil protects the stomach from ulcers. If a spoon or two is taken with lemon or coffee, it prevents constipation without irritating the intestinal tract. It is also effective in treating urinary tract infections and gall bladder problems. ...more

It doesn't repair it. It just conditions the hair and puts a coat of oil on it. That's all the "oils" do..is coat the hair. If you are looking for some serious repairing then go to a professional and ask what they use for treatments and what can you use for at home.

I use three different kinds of repair type deep treatments all mixed together to get my kick-*** deep hair repair treatment. I charge $20 for it and it works if my clients have it done on a regular basis.

Just make sure when you call a salon that you ask what brand and the name of the deep heating treatment they will be using on you. Be careful...some places just buy that gallon stuff that costs $5 and it is really crappy. Look for major names...Matrix, Redken, Paul Mitchell, etc,etc.
