Essential Oils For Hair

by Dannny

I was wondering if its okay to leave essential oils in your hair for the day. For example, I have a dry scalp and wanted to start using essential oils for my scalp and hair. I wanted to use them after I get out of the shower, its just easier for me. So I guess I have two questions:

1. Can you dilute essential oils into like a spray bottle with water and spray on your scalp and hair after you take a shower. I've been looking for a recipe but haven't found anything.

2.Can you leave it in for the whole day without washing it out.

Leave In Conditioner for Hair
by: Kyley

Hi Danny,

It seems to me it would be fine to spritz essential oils into your hair and leave them all day. It would be like a leave in conditioner, I'd think.

I suggest trying 1 cup (250ml) water in a spray bottle and adding up to 10 drops of your chosen essential oils, say 3 drops each of rosemary, peppermint and lavender or tea tree. Then spray into your hair and rub into your scalp. Style as usual.

I would love it if you give this a try and come back and let us know how it worked. I hadn't thought of making a leave-in product, so I'd be grateful to hear the results.

Thanks for your question, Danny, and good luck!
