EOs & Carrier Oils For Your Hair And How To Choose The One That Suits Your Hair Condition

Make It A Good Hair Day!

Using essential oils in hair care is a hot trend, from products infused with EOs to homemade coconut oil deep conditioners.  For centuries people have used oils for various medicinal and cosmetic purposes. Now, you can find them in many shampoos, serums, and other hair care products. You can also use them to make your own hair care treatments.

Essential oils, the highly concentrated plant extracts everyone’s talking about, offer some amazing benefits for your hair.  Coupled with one of these nutrient-dense carrier oils, and you’ve completely revolutionized your hair care routine.

Simple Hair Serum Recipe:
Think of this base recipe as a blueprint - you can mix and match essential oils and carrier oils to achieve your desired scent or outcome, whether you’re dealing with dry ends or oily roots.  To make this simple hair serum you only need a few drops of essential oil.  Try mixing and matching up to 5-10 drops of essential oil into one ounce of carrier oil. 

 

Try these combos to start: 

  • Stimulate the scalp and roots to promote hair growth and shine: 2 drops Cedarwood, 3 drops Clary Sage, and for that #SUMMERGLOW add 4 drops Lavender to 1oz fractionated coconut oil.
  • Dry and over-processed hair: 5 drops Sandalwood in Jojoba, 5 drops Chamomile Roman in Jojoba, 2 drops Geranium, and 3 drops Lavender added to 1oz Jojoba. (with our exotic essential oils like Sandalwood that are already diluted in Jojoba you can use more drops than otherwise recommended)
  • Oily hair: 2 drops Petitgrain and 5 drops Ylang Ylang added to 1oz of lighter carrier oil, such as Grapeseed, or Sweet Almond.
Apply to clean, towel-dried hair. After you apply the oil mixture, cover your head in a towel or shower cap. 
Leave this treatment in for 15-30 minutes and then shampoo out, or you can leave it in overnight and shampoo in the morning. If you prefer using as a leave-in conditioner, this is a great option as well.  See what works best for your hair texture. The beauty of a good DIY like this one is that you have so many options to choose from that everyone will find their perfect solution.

*Please be aware that if you put some essential oils directly to your scalp, they may cause irritation. Always follow the instructions for how to dilute oils, and never use more than the recommended amount.
**If you're allergic to plants such as ragweed, test the oil on a small area of your skin or scalp to see if you have a reaction before using.
