Essential oils are packed with amazing antioxidants and other compounds that are healing, restorative and stimulating.  Nevertheless; trying to incorporate essential oils into your life, can be overwhelming.  Many of you just don’t have the time, am I right?  Well, with this simple technique, you can enjoy the benefits of essential oils for your hair, without a hassle!

Here are some of the ways essential oils can help your hair:

  • Stimulate growth
  • Strengthen  follicles
  • Eliminate dandruff
  • Prevent premature greying
  • Fight scalp acne
  • Oil control
  • Moisturise dry hair
  • Reduce hair fall
  • Repair damage
  • Kill lice
  • Fight fungal infections 

How to add essential oils to your shampoo:

Adding essential oils to your shampoo is easy.  You can simply open your shampoo bottle and add some drops of your essential oil of choice.  Or, you can also do what I do!  Personally, I like to use a narrow tip applicator bottle.  The narrow tip gives me greater control of the amount and placement of my shampoo.  You should only apply shampoo to the scalp and not the lengths of the hair!  (This goes for any shampoo, not just the one you add essential oils to.)  I also dilute my shampoo with water; doing this makes thicker shampoos easy to spread and lather.

The two essential oils I add to my shampoo every washday are tea tree and lavender!

How much essential oil should you add:

For every 10 ml of shampoo, add 10 drops of essential oil.
If you have sensitive skin, reduce the amount of essential oil by half. 

Here’s a list of the best essential oils for different hair problems:

  • For hair growth: Peppermint, Cedarwood, Lavender, Thyme, Rosemary, Tea tree
  • For dandruff: Tea tree, Lavender, Lemon, Neroli, Chamomile
  • For oil control: Peppermint, Cypress, Lemon
  • For odour removal: Rose Otto, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Lemon
  • For dry hair: Cedarwood, Sweet Orange, Ylang-ylang
