For many years, essential oils have been known for their aromatic and homeopathic capabilities on our bodies and have been used as a natural remedy in Middle Eastern cultures, thanks to its effectiveness and little to no side effects. But did you know that essential oils can be equally beneficial for the hair and scalp? Yes, you heard that right! Some essential oils can help improve the health of your hair and treat major issues such as inflammation, dandruff and hair loss. While others can bring back the shine and strengthen your hair.
If having strong and lustrous locks is one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2021, then here are some tips and tricks on the ideal ways to use essential oils and maximise their benefits at home from The Hair Addict, the leading brand for natural hair treatments and solutions:
- Always use essential oils diluted in a carrier oil at a concentration no more than 3-5%
- For maximum benefits use a diluted essential oil of your choice followed by a thorough scalp massage. Wait for two hours before washing your hair.
- If you have a busy schedule and don’t have the time for oil treatments, add your favourite essential oil to your shampoo and leave it in for a few minutes before rinsing.
- To maximise the effect of your essential oil treatment, it’s advisable to use a heating cap such as The Hair Addict Infusion Hood (AED 73), which will enhance the penetration of the essential oils in your scalp.
