When making changes toward a more natural lifestyle, one area that can make a huge difference is your beauty routine. Today, we’re specifically going to be going over how you can use essential oils for healthier, more vibrant hair! Adding these essential oils into your routine will not only make you look and feel better, but it will also reduce the number of chemicals you’re in direct contact with on a regular basis.
Here are some of our favorite essential oils and natural tips for healthy hair and ways that you can add them into your routine:
If you’re looking to promote hair growth, peppermint oil can help with that! You know that tingly feeling when you come in contact with peppermint? That feeling occurs when the oil is promoting blood circulation. Better circulation to your scalp promotes hair growth!
You can utilize peppermint oil by doing a scalp massage. Take your favorite carrier oil like coconut or jojoba and add a couple of drops of peppermint. The next time you take a shower, gently massage the mixture into your scalp. Easy and effective!
You can also use our Mint-Infused 100% Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist in your shower to get these benefits! Simply run a hot shower and spritz a few sprays away from your face and into the steam and enjoy!
If you’re looking for a remedy for your dry and damaged hair, lavender oil can help! This essential oil is not only moisturizing and calming for your skin, but also your hair as well. Add some lavender to your favorite carrier oil and apply to your hair. Let it sit like a hair mask for 15-20 minutes and then thoroughly rinse. After you’ve washed it out, your hair will feel moisturized and shiny. Win!
Tea Tree Oil
If you use products in your hair on a regular basis, it can be hard to combat the dullness and dirtiness that comes with product buildup in your hair. You might be feeling like no matter how much you wash it, your hair never feels clean. Tea tree oil can help with clarifying your hair! Add a couple of drops to your shampoo and you’ll feel squeaky clean again.
Use a Sauna or Steam Room
Remember when we mentioned that better circulation can promote hair growth? You can also get those benefits by sitting in a steam room or sauna. While you’re there, gently massage your scalp. That helps with circulation as well. It’s a double whammy!
Stay Hydrated & Get Regular Trims
Drinking a ton of water is great for your overall health, which includes your hair! When you’re hydrating consistently, it’s helping your body to flush out toxins and will help your hair health. Along with that, getting regular hair trims really does help. Cutting off dead ends will give more room for growth.
