If you have specific hair concerns there are some essential oils that can help address some of your concerns. I will put my conditioner in a glass bottle and then add the essential oils that will address my own hair concerns. doTERRA carries a great conditioner that I use to mix with my essential oils. I will give you a list of essential oils that would be recommended for the most common hair conditions.
Lavender essential oil can help deep conditions the hair; keep it shiny, and helps control dandruff. Add 4-5 drops of lavender essential oil per ounce of conditioner.
When applied over the scalp rosemary essential oil helps stimulate hair growth. Many people also claim that it can prevent baldness, slows graying, and can be used to treat dandruff and dry scalp. Add 4-5 drops of rosemary essential oil per ounce of conditioner.
Cedarwood essential oil can stimulate the hair follicles and increase circulation to the scalp. This contributes to hair growth and slows hair loss. Herbalists and aromatherapists have recommended essential oils for years to treat hair loss, thinning hair and various types of alopecia.
There’s evidence that applying cedarwood oil, in combination with the essential oils from thyme, rosemary and lavender, to the scalp improves hair growth in up to 44 percent for people with hair loss after seven months of treatment. To do this, add cedarwood oil to your shampoo or conditioner, or just massage the oil into your scalp and let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing.
Melaleuca essential oil is great to add to your conditioner because it helps to clean your hair, its great for your scalp and helps target dandruff, eczema or psoriasis in your scalp. Add 4-5 drops per ounce of conditioner.
Essential oils can be used for hair loss, as they cleanse the scalp to encourage follicle growth and circulation. Our Hair Loss Helper Essential Oil Blend contains Rosemary, Lavender, Cedarwood, and Thyme. Add 2 to 3 drops per oz of shampoo.
Cedarwood essential oil helps reduce dry or flaky scalp. It stimulates the scalp and increases circulation. To take advantage of this essential oil benefit, mix two drops of cedarwood essential oil with coconut oil to create a mixture with antifungal and moisturizing properties. Add the mixture to your scalp, and rub it in for five minutes. For the best results, let it sit on your scalp for 30 minutes or so — then wash it out.
If you want to focus on thickening your hair, put 5 drops of rosemary oil on scalp and massage after your shower. Don’t rinse.
