Out With The Old, In With the Oil
Essential oils are widely used for organic, natural hair care and can do wonders to keep your hair looking beautiful. They often have the ability to clear clogged follicles and stimulate the glands that produce healthy oils in your scalp, leaving it moisturized. Here are 4 that we think you should try and how you can use them to make your own DIY hair oil!
If used regularly, rosemary oil stimulates the hair follicles, which can result in hair growth. It also promotes stronger hair, and can help with hair loss and discoloration. Rosemary oil can be especially beneficial for males who are noticing thinning hair.
One of the most popular essential oils for hair care, coconut oil acts as a great deep conditioner for your tresses. Since it's a common remedy for dry and flaky skin, it helps prevent dandruff and scalp conditions. Along with this, the restorative properties of coconut oil treat split ends and keep hair moisturized.
Tea Tree Oil
This gentle oil naturally cleanses the clogged pores on your scalp, so no need for chemicals. It penetrates through built up sebum and dirt to aid in dandruff, itchiness and dryness.
When massaged on the scalp, basil oil helps with blood circulation to the area, which in turn promotes hair growth. Basil oil is also great for helping hair achieve a healthy shine and preventing premature graying.
Combine rosemary, coconut, tea tree and basil oils in a jar and mix. Massage a few drops (using your judgement based on your hair type) onto the scalp thoroughly. To allow the oil sufficient time to penetrate, wrap your hair in a warm towel for half an hour before rinsing out. The combination of these oils should begin to get your hair on the right track to health! If you don't have the time to create your own, try our Oil6, which is full of the same benefits.
