Essential Oils for Hair
Promote Healthy Hair and Scalp

Essential oils for hair can help promote healthy hair and scalp, reduce dryness and hair loss associated with the natural aging process.

Do you want great, healthy looking hair? Every time I walk into get my hair cut, my stylist always says she can't believe how fast my hair grows and how shiny it is!

But, first, did you know that…

How our hair looks, feels and grows can change based on -

  • What we put on it (synthetic shampoos, conditioners, gel, etc)

  • What we eat and drink (good for body=good for hair)

  • What we do (swimming in chlorinated pools, using hair dryer, etc)

  • Quality of our shower water (Use a shower filter for best results to remove fluoride, chlorine, iron oxides ("rust water"), reduce harmful VOCs and other contaminants.)

  • Genetics (what are parents passed down to us)

  • How much sleep we have nightly

  • Our stress level and

  • Possibly even healthy thyroid function

So, my advice is, in addition to using the oils, review that list and determine if there is something else you need to do to support having healthy hair and scalp. This may be as simple as drinking more water!

Also,

Did you know that most shampoos, hair and skincare products on the market contain synthetic materials that create many of our hair, scalp and skin challenges?

Here are a few examples -

  • Propylene Glycol - may causes dry skin and skin irritation.

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Laureth Sulfate - surfactant that may corrode hair follicles

  • Oleyl betaine – may cause dry hair and scalp.

  • Mineral oils - petroleum products clog pores! Yes, the molecule is too big to be absorbed by the skin.

So, check your labels, you may be surprised! If your shampoo has a pH between 4 and 6 and doesn't have synthetic compounds it's supportive to healthy hair growth.

There are great natural hair products on the market that contain essential oils including the AromaSilk line by Young Living. This are the only products I will place on my head!

If you are adventurous, make them at home by using a base shampoo and adding oils that are right for your hair type or condition. I usually add 3 to 5 drops of each oil to the shampoo directly or in a tablespoon of shampoo.

But, what is my hair type and what oils do I use?

No problem, below you will find the information on all the hair types and the corresponding oils. Also, provided is the carrier or base oils that are best for your hair type. Or Check out the Essential Oils fo Hair Chart.

Oils for Normal Hair

Normal hair is neither greasy nor dry, has not been permed or colored, holds its style and is usually shiny.

These oils are best for normal hair:

The best base or carrier oils to use are jojoba, almond or borage.

Oils for Dry Hair

Dry hair looks dull, tangles easily and can become easily split at the ends. Therefore, we want essential oils for hair that stimulate the sebaceous glands in the scalp to produce more oil!

Use these oils:

The top base or carrier oils to use are almond, sesame, jojoba, borage, cocoa butter or avocado.

Oils for Oily Hair

Oily hair looks greasy and is caused by over production of sebum by the sebaceous glands. Therefore, we want essential oils for hair that restore the glands back to normal.

Use these oils:

The top base or carrier oils are sesame, jojoba and borage.

Other Hair Challenges? Need to Cleanse the Hair?

No problem, here are my recommendations.

  1. Use a cleansing shampoo or cleansing oils first before you start. This will remove the buildup of chlorine, grease and chemicals in your hair and scalp.

  2. Pick several essential oils for hair to use for shampooing and/or make a blend with the base oil. (You may have to experiment with several oils until you find what you like)

  3. Use until you feel there is improvement.

  4. Start to include or use oils that support healthy hair growth next.

I use a KidScents Natural Essential Oil Shampoo with lemon, tangerine, and MSM.

Oils for Occasional Flakiness

Essential oils may be very effective in minimizing occasional flakiness.

Here are some others:

The top base or carrier oils to use are jojoba and borage.
