Hair loss can be such a pain. Finding those loose strands on the pillow or left on your brush can lead to a mix of feelings. After all, very few people want to be that old looking bald person. For women, it can be even more annoying as hair loss and baldness are often thought to be issues that men face.
Unfortunately, there are many things that can cause you to start losing your hair. Heredity is often a factor. It can be hard to be beat genes. Stress is another major cause of hair loss. When you add stress to heredity, it can lead to many adverse effects on the body, one of the most notable being hair thinning and loss.
Now there are plenty of products on the market to help with hair loss. The problem is that these solutions can cost a lot of money and come with long warning labels. Essential oils can offer a more natural solution to promoting hair health and growth with the only risk coming from any possible allergic reactions. Of course, essential oils cannot guarantee a stop hair loss, but then again neither can chemical products.
But what oils should you look for? You will want to start with rosemary, basil, or cedar wood. These oils help to improve circulation. These will help to ensure that your hair is getting all the nutrients that it needs to stay healthy and grow. Just add a couple drops of cedar and rosemary to the shampoo that you are already using.
Another thing you can do is add a drop or two of rosemary to your brush or comb. Then all you have to do is brush your hair like normal. Again, the rosemary helps promote circulation while also revitalizing the hair.
If you enjoy the feel of a good scalp massage, then try blending these essential oils with a carrier or massage oil. Some oils that work well as carrier oils for hair care include almond, avocado, jojoba, coconut, or olive oil. Almond and avocado oils help replenish key nutrients to the scalp, while jojoba, coconut, and olive oil act as moisturizers. Add a few drops of cedar and rosemary to a tablespoon of any of these carrier oils and gently massage the mix on your scalp. In addition to helping with hair growth, the carrier oils will also add a beautiful shine to you hair.
The final key is to add a couple drops of lavender to any of these mixes. Shampoos, brushes, and massages can only help with half of the problem of hair loss. Don’t forget that stress also plays a role in thinning. Lavender has a powerful effect at reducing stress and easing tension, thus helping to combat the effects of stress on your hair.
While genetics and stress can play a role in hair loss, these essential oils can help promote new growth and hair health. What solutions have you found? Do you prefer a good scalp massage? Or do you enjoy brushing your hair out instead? Let us know in the comments.
