To start with, essential oils are natural elements that have no man-made chemicals inside them which burn the hair and destroy their roots. Modern shampoos and hair conditioners are good for the health of the scalp in general, but if you are using low-quality products they can also affect the health of your hair by causing hair loss and a general discomfort sensation in the scalp. By combining essential oils with shampoos you can balance their effects and as a result, make your hair look and feel healthier.

Furthermore, which are the best essential oils for hair growth? Well, there are a lot of them: sage, lavender, rosemary, lemon oil and peppermint are just some to take into account when you want to make an oil mix for growing hair. What is important is to know what your underlying problem is and then choose an oil that is best for that problem. If you have dandruff and greasy hair for example, you should do a mix with peppermint oil and lavender, combined with almond oil. On the other hand, inflamed scalp should be treated with rosemary and olive oil. What matters most is to choose something that treats what problem you have, and is not of general use.

Moreover, stress can also be an important underlying problem for hair loss and a break from your everyday life can be of great help. Choose frankincense essential oils for an aromatherapy session which will take you away to a relaxing and calming place. Make 30 minutes of aromatherapy three times per week for best results.

To conclude, essential oils can help you have a better-looking scalp and hair and prevent problems for appearing during the course of your life. Choose oils with regard to what your allergies are is important, so go to your local generalist before trying anything on your skin that can put you in danger.
