Essential Oils for HairESSENTIAL OILS for HAIR
Essential oils have long been ingredients in hair care. You'll often find Lavender, Chamomile, Rosemary and Tea Tree in shampoos and conditioners, and for good reason — these oils can positively support the health of the scalp and hair follicles. Which may be the best oils for you?

Essential oils act as "active ingredients" in your formulas. Choose one or more and add them at the recommended concentrations to your carrier oil(s). Massage your blend into the scalp daily. Some recommend wrapping the scalp with a warm, moist towel afterward to open the pores and enhance absorption. This can be done before bed, and you may want to use a cover for your bedding to provide protection from the oils. Essential oils can also be added to your current shampoos and conditioners.
