Hair Talk: Oliva
Good morning blog Friends! I’m sorry I missed you at the end of last week. Every time I sat down to write, I was pulled away to search for various paperwork that my father’s lawyer needed. I would have preferred to be here with you instead. It’s just amazing how much legal stuff needs to be taken care of after someone passes away. My husbands father passed away almost 2 years ago and he mentioned that it took about 1 year to take care of everything!
But back to blogland. About a month ago while shopping, I came across hair and skin care products by Oliva. I must admit that my initial attraction was the minimalist green packaging – but it was further backed when I read it was made of olive leaf extract. Sounds interesting. I tried the shampoo and conditioner and it is definitely not what I am use to. My hair felt so squeaky clean! I honestly can’t remember the last time my hair felt this clean. The shampoo seemed to strip away any impurities and build up while the conditioner add light moisture but did not weigh my hair down. One word of caution – it did take me a little extra time to comb out my wet hair. I think it was due to the “squeakiness” of each hair. Somehow I got the impression that this is what washing your hair was suppose to be like.
I purchased the Oliva body lotion as well which is also made with olive leaf extract. It has a light fragrance and regardless of how much you put on, it seems to absorb and not feel greasy. I was surprised that the only place online I could find these products was Amazon. It didn’t appear that even the manufacturer had a website.
