Hair Health and Hair Loss Prevention

posted in: Blog | 0

Healthy, beautiful hair provoke wonderful positive reactions that we all want to enjoy. Many essential oils have excellent properties to assist in preventing hair loss and adding beauty, strength and the brillance we all seek.

Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) improves the circulation around the hair follicule, it strengthens hair and favors a more active growth. It is probably the most effective oil for this purpose and should be used often in scalp massages an hour before shampooing or every evening before bedtime.

Geranium (Geranium rosat) prevents excessive hair loss and can be used with cedarwood in massages, it can also be added to a shampoo or mixed with avocado oil and used as a mask.

Nard jatamansi ( Nardostachys jatamansi) is a plant from the Himalaya, it stimulates hair growth and should be added to cedarwood and geranium as a hair regrowth formula.

Occasionally, hair will lack shine and body, in this case rosemary with cineole (Rosemary citriodora)  and thyme with thunajol will revive your hair. Simply add 2 drops of thyme in your hand with each dose of shampoo and wash your hair,  when done, rinse with the following solution: 1 liter of water, 10 ml of white vinegar, 1 ml of rosemary with cineole. The scent of vinegar will dissipate very quickly once your hair is dry, and… for a lovely finish, add a dab of a carrier oil mixed with your favorite essential oil. The best carrier oils for different hair types and needs are listed under the therapy tab.  

Two elements that slowly damage hair cuticles are stress and pollution, ylang ylang will restore health when added to your favorite formula. Remember that essential oil therapy is often personalised, although it is a necessity to know and understand the benefits of each oil, one can change the formulas slightly to fit special body needs.
