The Top 3 Essential Oils for Healthy Hair
Everyone wants flawless hair. Who doesn’t want to feel like Beyonce when they show up to work? Without her professional team of stylists, though, it may seem nearly impossible to join the flawless ranks.
But what if you could achieve a celebrity look without becoming a celebrity? This week, we will teach you about 3 essential oils that will help transform your hair naturally.
- Jojoba Oil
Pronounced h??h?b?, this oil is more powerful that you might think. Jojoba oil is an excellent source of Vitamin E. The level of vitamin E in jojoba oil offers great benefits like hair growth, premature gray prevention, circulation, and stopping split ends. If you’ve never used jojoba oil before, start with a bi-weekly hot oil treatment. You can do this after washing your hair. Be sure to add the oil while hair is still slightly damp. Mix 15-20 drops of jojoba oil in a small bowl or jar (approximately 2 oz sized container) with ¼ cup of olive oil or almond oil. Gently massage the mixture into your hair and wrap a warm towel around it for 15-20 minutes. Wash and rinse your hair, then go about your usual routine. This process will keep your hair looking healthy and shiny.
- Peppermint Oil
Having a dry scalp feels awful. It’s even worse when you’ve spent so much money on products that claim to fix the issue. Instead of wasting cash on the newest fad, why not try peppermint oil? For centuries, people have used peppermint oil as a natural moisturizer. It invigorates and soothes your scalp on contact. Since it helps to restore your scalp’s natural oil production levels, it is perfect for people who suffer from dandruff as well. Be sure to dilute peppermint oil when you use it since it has such strong properties. One of the best methods is mixing a few drops in water and putting it in a spray bottle. You can part your hair and spray the mixture on your scalp to maintain a great look.
- Lavender Oil
How would you feel if you could reverse hair loss? Between the stress we deal with at work and the crazy things we put our hair through every day, most of us do more damage than we realize. Lavender oil is great for reversing some of the harm we have done to our tresses over the years. A lot of people are familiar with calming effects of lavender oil, but just a couple drops can assist in regenerating and revitalizing hair without harsh chemicals. Research shows that a little lavender can regrow hair in just a few months. Lavender treatments, like any oil treatments, are best applied by a licensed beautician who can accurately gauge the amount and frequency needed to regrow your hair.
