Essential Oils for Hair Care

Have you ever noticed how few people over 50 have shiny, healthy hair hair you’d die for? There aren’t very many of them.

Though it may be part of the natural aging process to lose some of your crowning glory, it’s not a natural process for it to lose its gleam and glow. This lack of life is almost always due not to aging but to the unhealthy practices of overwashing, blow drying, and using chemical products such as sprays, perms and gels.

Health, natural hair care is basically a very simple undertaking. Here are some tips of how essential oils can help!

Basil: Oily hair. Promotes growth

Chamomile: Fine to normal hair. Gives golden highlights

Clary sage: All types of hair. Dandruff treatment

Lavender: Normal hair. Scalp treatment for itchiness, dandruff, and even lice!

Lemon: Oily hair. Gives golden highlights; treatment for dry scalp, dandruff, lice, and underactive sebaceous glands

Myrrh: Dry hair. Treatment for dry scalp, dandruff, lice, and underactive sebaceous glands

Patchouli: Oily hair. Dandruff treatment

Peppermint: Dry hair. Promotes hair growth

Rose: Fine hair. Soothes scalp

Rosemary: Oily hair. Dandruff treatment; promotes hair growth

Tea tree: Oily hair. Treatment for dry scalp, dandruff, lice, and underactive sebaceous glands

Ylang-ylang: Oily hair. Dandruff treatment
