Healthy hair and healthy heart with aromas

January 24th, 2017

Today, I would like to introduce to you the essential oils especially recommended for hair care. These are guaranteed to make both your hair and mind feel clear and healthy! We’ll take a look at some organic shampoo and conditioner recipes you can make by hand using these oils, affecting hair growth, alopecia areata and oily ordry dandruff. With just a base material and an appropriate essential oil it will be easy to prepare the recipe, so read on and enjoy the organic method of hair care!



Recommended essential oil for hair care


For making shampoo, essential oils are selected according to the individual condition of the scalp and hair. Hair growth and itching or dandruff are the main concerns we wish to deal with, and the selection of the oil should be based on what best enhances the removal of dirt and extra sebum. It is preferable that the essential oil for scalp and hair quality is the same for both shampoo and conditioner.

Limonene, the main component of citrus essential oil, has a fat decomposition effect that makes it easier to remove sebum, so if you want to improve the cleansing effects on the skin it is better to add citrus essential oils such as grapefruit or orange. Alpha pinene is said to have the same effect. Forest-derived essential oils such as Juniper and Cypress will be effective as well.

Rosemary is said to have a hair growth effect  It’s a commonly used ingredient for hair care. Also, a blend of rosemary, lavender, thyme and cedarwood is effective for treating alopecia areata.

Regarding greasy dandruff: in addition to excessive sebum secretion, it is said to be caused by the growth of Malassezia fungi. A report showing the effect of care with a shampoo containing 5% of tea tree oil with antimicrobial activity shows this. 

For dry dandruff, research has shown the positive effects of blending Palmarosa, Geranium, Spike Lavender, Tea Tree, Blue Camomile, Peppermint.

The recipe I made is based on these.
