It’s National Hair Day! We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to share some of our top essential oil tips for making sure every day is a good hair day. We’ve got everything from fun DIYs to quick and easy additions to your daily routine. And the best part is you can care for your hair naturally. Let’s dive in!
For the Girl on the Go
We get it. Life is busy and crazy and sometimes it’s easier to throw your hair in a ponytail and call it good. But there are a couple quick and easy ways to make sure your hair still stays healthy, shiny and soft.
Boost your shampoo!
This really is one of the easiest things you can do. All you need is your favorite unscented shampoo and a couple of essential oils and you’re good to go! Rosemary is one of the most popular oils when it comes to hair care, and for good reason. It helps stimulate growth, promotes a healthy scalp and combats excess oil. Cedarwood (Atlas or Himalayan) is another fabulous oil for your hair as it helps promote a flake-free scalp. Combine these oils in your shampoo and you’re good to go! For everyday use, stick to a 1% dilution, or 9 drops per ounce. If you wash your hair less often, feel free to bump it up to a 2% dilution or 18 drops. An easy way to experiment is by making mini-batches in travel-size bottles so you can find the combination that’s right for your hair.
Spritz it Up!
Now that your shampoo has the added benefits of essential oils, you can add the finishing touches by lightly misting your hair with a hydrosol. Both Rose and Lavender are great for helping condition dry and damaged hair. You can spritz when it’s wet or dry, whatever fits your routine best.
