Nowadays with our stressful life and agenda packed with important appointments our hair takes the last place as far as care goes. We treat it roughly by washing it too often and quickly without finding time to nourish it correctly, we dry it with the hot air button on our hairdryer so it dries quicker, and we dye it too often inflicting damage that at times cannot ever be salvaged.
Hair oils contribute greatly in helping our hair recover from the stress we have put it through and there are specific oils that are prepared for different purposes, which can be for hair growth, general heath and other beneficial treatments for your hair.
Amongst the most popular oils you will find chamomile, lavender, patchouli, rosemary, rose, Clary sage, basil as well as many others. Every one of these essential oils contributes to heal or enhance the hair and scalp.
For those who wish to promote hair growth and have oily hair basil will help take out the excessive oil and stimulate hair growth. Chamomile is a great substitute for dyes if you wish to enhance the golden highlights in your natural hair, especially if your hair is fine and normal. If your hair is too oily and causes itchiness and dandruff, you can try using lavender oil that will sooth the itchiness and reduce the oily secretion in the scalp.
You can find an essential oil for all types of hair and problems related to hair conditions. People with curly hair and oil excess may find that lemon will reduce the oil and add highlights to curls. Patchouli oil is very effective for oily hair and dandruff as well as an itchy and dry scalp.
Ylang-ylang, tea tree and rosemary are essential oils that work very well for all oily hair types, as well as reducing dandruff problems. Rose oil will also help reduce an itchy scalp and will help strengthen fine hair.
You should use these essential natural oils regularly. Once a week you should massage the scalp and hair, this will stimulate the hair follicles giving your hair a healthy glow and luster and help keep long hair stronger avoiding split ends.
Healthy hair will also need to be treated properly, avoid stressing it or using medicines that can influence the health of your hair and scalp. Some medicines can actually stop hair growth and have a very negative impact on the general health of your hair.
Keep in mind that if you are taking any kind of supplements for hair growth, or about to use some kind of medicine, or hair growth product, you should always ask your doctors advice in order to be clear you are fully aware of the side effects and consequences on your hairs health.
