Did you know you can use essential oils for hair? Adding essential oils and herbs to your hair care is a great way to enhance the natural beauty and health of your hair and scalp. In this blog post we will be highlighting some of the best essential oils and herbs for your hair type and scalp condition.  Not sure about your hair type? Check out our previous blog post here for more information on hair type and scalp conditions.

Essential Oils for Hair

Essential oils help to balance natural skin oils, cleanse and refresh hair and scalp. They work like a tonic and promote shiny hair.

For Most Hair Types:

  • Bergamot
  • Calendula
  • Lavender
  • Sweet Orange
  • Tea Tree

For Dry Hair Types:

  • Clary Sage
  • Lavender
  • Myrrh
  • Patchouli
  • Rose Geranium

For Oily Hair Types:

  • Bergamot
  • Clary Sage
  • Lemon
  • Lavender
  • Rose Geranium
  • Tea Tree

For Dandruff:

  • Basil
  • Patchouli
  • Rose Geranium
  • Tea Tree

For Hair Loss:

Irritated & Itchy Scalp:

  • Calendula
  • Chamomile (Cape, German, Morrocan, & Roman Types)

An easy way to use essential oils on your hair is to add 1-2 drops of the oil on your hair brush prior to brushing your hair. Your hair will smell nice and the essential oil will promote smooth and shiny hair.

Herbs for Hair

Herbs are another great way to enhance the health and beauty of your hair and scalp. You can use fresh or dry herbs. An easy way is to make a hair rinse by first making an herbal water/tea or infusion with your herb of choice. Here are some great herbs and their properties:

Calendula: Highly nourishing, soothing and softening. Adds shine and highlight to hair and soothes irritated scalp.Use fresh or dried flowers.

Chamomile: Anti-inflammatory and promotes regeneration of skin cells and softening of the scalp. Lightens hair and soothes irritated scalp. Use fresh or dried flowers.

Lavender: Cleansing and astringent properties. Helps with dandruff and to strengthen the hair. Use dried or fresh flowers.

Lemon Balm: Soothes the scalp. Use dried or fresh herb.

Peppermint: Refreshing and revitalizing properties. Use dried or fresh leaf.

Rosemary: Purifies, cleanses and stimulates. Darkens the hair, stimulates circulation and revitalizes- promotes hair growth. Use dried or fresh leaf and flower.

Thyme: Great antiseptic. Good for dandruff. Use dried or fresh leaf and flower.

To make an herbal water/tea simply add fresh or dried herbs to boiling water. Cover and steep for 2-15 minutes depending on the herb. Strain out herbs and once cooled can use as a hair rinse. For an infusion the herbs will be steeped for a longer period of time for 2-8 hours prior to straining out the herbs.

Hair Types Scalp Conditions

All About Hair: Hair Types and Scalp Conditions

All About Hair: Hair Types and Scalp Conditions

Let’s talk about hair! Short, long, curly, straight, frizzy, dry, oily, natural, relaxed, and the list goes on. Everyone’s hair is unique to them. At Joan Morais Naturals we are all about celebrating YOUR hair and what you can do to nourish and care for your hair in the best way for YOU.

Most hair products you find at the store and even the hair salons are not going to be nourishing for your unique hair needs. Did you know that most shampoos are meant to dry out your hair so that you then need conditioner to add the moisture back in?! Our scalp is a part of our skin and has a natural balance of oils. Our scalp, however, can easily get off track due to a variety of reasons including our personal health, our hormones, and environmental exposure including weather, sun and hair color and products.

Our hair is actually dead, but we can still do things to take care of our hair and scalp to create vibrancy and health. Lets learn about different hair types and some ways we can best take care of our hair to bring out its natural beauty!

Hair Types

Normal: Hair is balanced- not too oily or too dry. The hair has shine and vibrancy and can use most natural hair care products.

Dry: Hair looks dull, brittle and frizzy. It is lacking moisture and may have split ends and scalp may have dry flakes. Shampoo dry hair less frequently and use natural hair care products with moisturizing agents and contain essential fatty acids.

Oily: Hair has excessive moisture. It lacks body and looks dull and weighed down. The imbalance may be from diet, hormones, medications, health issues and product use. Wash hair frequently with mild shampoo to reduce oil production.

Scalp Conditions

Stress: Stress can cause hair loss or hair to change color. Take a look at our past presidents at the beginning of the term to the end of their presidency to see a dramatic difference! In times of stress use essential oils and herbs on the scalp that promote relaxation and calmness.

Hair Loss: Hair loss is also called alopecia. Alopecia can be heredity or be from medications, hormonal changes, and chemical hair applications such as hair color, relaxation and perms. Prevention is the best way to counter hair loss. A daily scalp massage with jojoba oil prior to shampooing has been known to promote a healthy scalp.

Dandruff: Dandruff occurs when the scalp is out of balance. It can be oily or dry. Use essential oils and herbs that are anti-fungal and balancing.

Come back next week as we go over the best plant oils, essential oils and herbs for your hair type and scalp!
