Good Oils, Great Hair!

I've recently become an avid reader of Alive Magazine for articles just like this one. Enjoy!

Most people try and remove the oil from their hair. Thatís the worst thing to do. Your hair needs the essential fats and acids found in essential oils to make it healthy and luxurious. Healthy hair is just a drop away.

Here are some sure-fire recipes to give you the hair everybody envies.

Lavender and rosemary do more than just smell good: they make your hair silky and shiny too. After washing your hair, add a few drops of rosemary and lavender to your hairbrush. Brush your hair from the scalp to the ends. Itís a great way to stimulate scalp circulation and it feels nice too!

If your scalpís itchy and flaky, rosemary, tea tree and cedar oils help. Combine a drop of each in two tablespoons of castor oil. Pour onto the crown of your head and massage outwards. Leave in your hair for one hour and then rinse.

Dry, damaged hair can make the best hairstyle look bad. Clary sage, cedar oil, geranium, lavender and rosemary can smooth the hair follicle. Combine a drop of each in two tablespoons of olive oil. Pour onto the crown of your head and massage outwards. Leave in your hair for one hour and then rinse.

Finally, if your hair is falling out, clary sage, cedar oil, geranium, lavender and rosemary can help get to the root of the problem. Mix with two tablespoons of castor oil and massage into the scalp. Wait one hour and then shampoo.

Cheryl's Footnote: I've found this wonderful hot-oil treatment with many of the "good-for-your-hair-'n-scalp" essential oils noted above.
