There are many reasons why you should pay attention to what you are putting on your hair. First, mainstream hair products sold at pharmacies tend to dry out hair and contain loads of chemicals. Second, many of us have problems with dry scalp, dandruff, greasiness, lack of growth, fried or split ends, etc. Lastly, we should always pay attention to what we are putting in and on our bodies, and what types of products and companies we are supporting with our business. Live mindfully and naturally is always our mantra here!
Thus, I am here today to explain the wonders of using hair oil, a mix of all natural plant-based oils used to hydrate and maintain your hair. We have two different types of Be Beautiful Hair Oil that we sell. Below is a list of a few carrier oils (mild oils also known as base oils or vegetable oils, often used to dilute essential oils) that we use in our hair oil and reasons why we highly recommend them for hair treatments.
-Avocado Oil: A thick, heavy oil that contains healthy fats and many vitamins, such as vitamin E. Given its thickness, it's recommended to only use on medium to thick hair. It has regenerative properties and repairs damaged hair.
-Grapeseed Oil: This oil is very inexpensive comparatively, and contains linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that can protect against hair loss. It is a light oil. Grapeseed is also known to lock in moisture, making it quite beneficial for a dry scalp.
-Jojoba Oil: Jojoba is actually a liquified wax that is excellent for your hair and scalp. It helps hair cells to regenerate more rapidly, resulting in hair growth. It is also used to curb dandruff and treat scalp psoriasis.
Although the above oils work well on their own, when making your own all natural hair oil it is advised to add a few essential oils to the mix. Essential oils, as you may know, have therapeutic benefits for all sorts of various ailments- whether it be medical, cosmetic, or even psychological. Below is a list of a few essential oils that we use in our hair oil blends that can yield great results when used on your hair.
-Rosemary: One of the most well-known oils for your hair. Rosemary oil has been used for millennia to treat weak or thinning hair. It also cleanses the hair of toxins and increases circulation to your scalp.
-Lavender: Lavender oil has anti inflammatory and antiseptic properties that soothe irritated and itchy scalps, as well as keep away harmful bacteria that can inhibit healthy hair growth. An added bonus is its wonderful, calming aroma!
-Ylang Ylang: The best kept secret of natural hair care is ylang ylang essential oil. It regulates oil production (same when used on the face), maintaining a healthy balance of oils. Ylang ylang stimulates hair growth, resulting in a longer and thicker head of hair. Also, interestingly, it kills head lice.
Mix your own hair oil blend and use it as a daily treatment or a weekly treatment. We recommend to apply a small amount to dry or damp hair and do not wash it out. For a weekly moisturizing treatment, massage the oil into your scalp, saturating it entirely, then let it sit for at least 45 min. to an hour before washing it out. If you do this once a week, you will truly see the results- healthy and strong hair!
