I finally asked her once what she did/used on her skin. She seemed surprised that I thought her skin was so nice! She told me whenever she cooked she just rubbed a little olive oil into her hands, on her lips, her face, and that was her completely nonchalant answer!!! Sometimes she added some to the bath water, but it was a pain to clean up. She told me of a spa treatment she had had that was a bath in a vat of olive oil!
I used to use a little warm olive oil on my daughter's scalp when she had cradle cap. Months of store-bought treatments (even a stinky organic lotion for the condition) did nothing for it. Two baby-scalp massages with the golden oil, and nary a scale remained! I have long recommended it for clients with dry scalp (if other treatments didn't seem to help and it wasn't a dermatologist/medical issue.) A coworker recommends it for alopecia spots (Note: We are not doctors! Cosmetologists! Use common sense and see a medical professional if you have weird scalp or skin things!). I have hairdresser hands, an alopecia spot, dry patches on my body, oy! What a mess!

So I'll start with using olive oil on my hands. I also want to do a scalp/hair moisturizing treatment with it. I will brush my hair thoroughly, part small sections, apply oil with a clean tint brush, pull oil through ends, top with plastic cap and let it soak for awhile. Sounds delish!
Here's to silky, not greasy, hair and skin!
