BEST ESSENTIAL OILS FOR HAIR LOSS
I have been researching and discovering the best essential oils to stop or slow down hair loss.
It has been proven that stress is no friend to your hair, so nearly all these essential oils will help relax you as well as sort other problems :
- Dandruff control.
- Stimulate hair growth.
- Stop itchy scalp.
- Nourish hair.
- stop head lice.
MY TOP 3 ESSENTIAL OILS FOR HAIR LOSS
ROSEMARY ESSENTIAL OIL : Was first noted as having preservative qualities centuries ago. Herbalists have recommended it for hair care for many years. Saying massaging ROSEMARY ESSENTIAL OIL onto the scalp will prevent premature baldness. It will also help thicken hair & promote hair growth, giving dandruff relief & stop dry scalp a total all round head treatment.
LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL : This has to be the most versatile essential oil of them all ? also my favourite. With it’s ANTIMICROBIAL properties It will soothe the scalp, promotes growth of new cells & a antiseptic . Also one of the best oils for calming & relaxing you, this will take away the stress & that will make your hair more healthy.
LEMONGRASS ESSENTIAL OIL : Is already used added to some soaps, shampoos, conditioners & deodorants to name a few. It is said that it can strengthen hair follicles & stops itchy scalp. Also good for pet fleas !! & as a insect repellent ( read : https://massage-for-well-being.com/essential-oils-for-insect-bites ). PRECAUTION : Lemongrass can be rather harsh & could irritate sensitive skins. Use a low dosage until you know it’s safe for your skin.
I know I have said three, but I really have to add another one
PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL : This is another one with antiseptic properties, also helps with dandruff & lice. If it doesn’t help your hair at least you will be able to breath easy ! ha ha.
CARRIER OILS TO MIX THE ESSENTIAL OILS
OLIVE OIL CARRIER OIL : Contains vitamin E. It also has ANTIOXIDANTS that will help protect hair follicles. Olive oil also helps with frizzy hair & leaves the hair naturally shiny.
ALMOND CARRIER OIL : Contains omega-3, phospholipids, magnesium & vitamin E. Great for strengthening & repairing damaged hair. It will also nourish & shin your hair.
COCONUT CARRIER OIL : Promotes a healthy scalp, fighting dandruff & lice. It gets deep into the follicles & that will stimulate hair growth. It’s good for preventing split ends, leaving hair shiny & nourished.
HOW TO USE & MIX :
You could mix the rosemary, lavender & lemongrass together ? Add 3 drops of each then massage into the scalp gently for about 15 minutes. After wash hair like normal. or mix any with your normal conditioners adding about 5 drops. or 12 drops of essential oils to 30ml of carrier oil. Just remember do not go out in the sun with any oils on your head !!! You will cook in minutes & I haven’t written the sunburn essential oils post yet ! lol
As I stated above a lot of shampoo’s, conditioner’s, deodorant’s & soap’s contain some of these essential oils & carrier oils. So why not go back to basics and make your own ? Your own will have less chemicals in them, that must be better for you ? It will work out cheaper in the long run.
