What can Oils and Essential Oils do for me?
As we all continue to be more environmentally friendly, we look at products we can switch out. A great place to start is how we care for and treat our hair and scalp. See what oils and oil combinations you can use to keep your hair looking beautiful, full, and healthy.
Many oils can be used for a variety of treatments, we are just sharing a handful of our favorite at-home remedies to try in between your normal beauty regime. Just as a reminder to skin test all of these items and we aren't a health clinic please be cautious with using essential oils.
Coconut oil is a tried and tested oil, that’s already used in many products. On its own or in combination with your hair care products it will soften and increase the shine of your hair.
Lavender oil is one of my personal favorite smells and is used in a large variety of ailments. Not only does it smell great but it also deep conditions your hair, adds nutrients, and stimulates the scalp for proper health and care.
Cedarwood oil is great for those who stress and lose hair easily. This oil stimulates the scalp and promotes hair growth.
Moroccan argan oil is also used in many beauty hair care products. There’s no wonder why, it moisturizes and nourishes your hair while providing antioxidants to it.
Rosemary oil is also great to improve both hair thickness and hair growth. It is a common hair growth treatment.
Lemongrass oil is used to help with dandruff. It can be tiring using shampoo after shampoo that just isn’t cutting it. I would try adding this oil to your regular shampoo and suds up. Another added benefit is it’s also great for strengthening your hair.
Peppermint oil is great for those with oily scalp. If you have the opposite issues of dandruff this will help hair growth also.
You can mix and match many of these oils together, but for essential oils, less is always more. When you are adding it to a product or carrier oil, such as coconut or Moroccan argan oil, stick to using only 2 to 3 drops and then run it through your hair. You can use water and/or a comb to ensure it gets into your scalp and hair. The easiest solution to start trying these options is adding a few drops to your normal shampoo once a week.
