Happy New Month guys!!

Did you know that not all oils are good for your hair? Mineral oil and Petroleum oil, for example, dries out moisture from the hair and scalp which would, with time, lead to dry hair making the hair prone to breakage, dandruff etc…So in this Post, I’ll be sharing a little on a few of some of the essential oils and how they contribute to the health of your hair; at the end I hope we would add these to our list of hair product essentials and look out for products that contain these….

Ready or not?Here I come…Essential Oils are usually oils derived from parts of plants or trees, that doesn’t include the seed but parts like flowers, root,stems etc. They work wonders when applied to hair and scalp because of their medicinal and therapeutic properties. They are highly concentrated and thus it’s usually advisable not to apply them directly but to mix them with a base oil like olive oil, jojoba oil, before applying to scalp; great for pre-poos or rinses or homemade spritz!

Because they penetrate deeply into the hair shaft and follicles, here are some of the benefits:

a) Help produce healthy, shiny hair

b) Soothe dry irritated scalp

c) Strengthen hair shaft and stimulate hair follicles

d) Cleanse scalp and improve condition of the hair. 

Here are a few essential oils to look out for and how they help your hair(don’t forget,they may be hidden as ingredients in products too) …
