Natural Hair: Carrier Oils & Essential Oils

Natural Hair: Carrier Oils & Essential Oils

I purchased all my oils from these two websites because they have good deals. www.vitacost.com & www.camdengrey.com
Hair is a list of my Carrier oils and Essential oils (Always dilute essential oils).

Jojoba Oil: Jojoba Oil is ideal for moisturizing skin and hair because it mimics the natural oils our bodies produces. It is a great skin cleanser, makeup remover, and hydrates the skin. Jojoba is great for all hair types and has an ability to inhibit excess activity of the sebaceous glands making it the perfect choice for people with oily scalps that still need conditioning. Likewise, it can be used for dry hair as it helps to moisturize your hair properly.

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil consists of more than ninety percent of saturated fats Vitamin-E and Vitamin K and minerals such as Iron. Coconut oil is considered one of the best natural nutrition for hair. It is an excellent conditioner and helps in the re-growth of damaged hair. It also provides the essential proteins required for nourishing damaged hair and it softens the hair and conditions the scalp.
Castor Oil – is a vegetable oil obtained from the castor bean. Castor oil is a colorless to very pale yellow liquid with mild or no odor or taste. It is rich in ricinoleic acid and can be used to treat skin conditions such as fungal infections. It nourishes hair and prevents the scalp from drying by retaining moisture. Castor oil added to hair care products helps to seal moisture, softens, stimulates the scalp for hair growth and visibly thickens hair.

Olive Oil – Only olive oil that is labelled “extra virgin” guarantees that the oil has been cold pressed from freshly harvested olives and does not contain chemicals. Extra virgin olive oil that is green in color is of higher quality than golden-yellow oil. Olive oil helps in preventing as well as curing hair loss as it prevents the production of the hormone DTH which causes the hair follicle shaft to decrease. Regular application of olive oil to hair prevents the production of DTH hormones on the scalp, thus getting rid of the problem of hair loss. Olive oil strengthens and smooths hair cuticles.
Avocado Oil- is extracted from avocados. It is full of vitamins that your hair needs like vitamins A, E, D and potassium. If you want a super deep conditioner treatment or skin moisturizer, add avocado oil to the other carrier oils.
Amla Oil: The Amla fruit Contains essential fatty acids that helps strengthen the hair follicles to condition and improve the hair. If you’re suffering from dry and itchy scalp, Amla oil penetrates and treats the scalp. Other than the fatty acids, it also contains Amla fruit extracts which are rich in vitamin C, Polyphenols, Flavonoids, protein, carbohydrates, minerals, antioxidants and water.
Sweet Almond Oil: Sweet almond oil contains a high concentration of proteins and vitamins A, B and E, all of which help add shine to dull, dry hair. Additionally, fatty acids omega 9, 6 and 3 help to reflect damaging UV rays and protect hair from the sun, deterring the dullness that comes from dryness. Keep hair strong and healthy, preventing against breakage.
Rose-hip Oil: This oil has a high content of essential fatty acids and vitamins. Rose-hip oil is proven to help with dandruff and other similar scalp conditions. It adds shine to dull hair and is excellent for the skin as well.
Essential Oils
Lavender Oil: Not only known for its gorgeous scent, it has proven hair benefits and is good for all hair types. Lavender oil is extracted mostly from the flowers of the lavender plant, primarily through steam distillation. It is a good treatment for dandruff and itching, helpful in controlling hair breakage and improving hair growth. Most widely known to treat alopecia areata, a condition where you lose excessive hair, especially in patches.

Tea Tree Oil: is a great moisturizer for the hair, it helps to keep the scalp free of bacteria and fungal problems. Tea tree oil unblocks the sebaceous glands and encourages the flow of the scalp’s own moisturizing oils while clearing away dead skin cells.
Rosemary Oil – Is another oil which doubles as a fragrant oil and an essential oil. The oil is derived from the rosemary plant and is very useful for dandruff problems and flaky itchy scalp. Rosemary oil stimulates the hair follicles; as a result hair, can grow longer and stronger.
Lemongrass Oil: Is a good treatment for dry scalp, dandruff, lice and under-active sebaceous glands.

Geranium Oil: This sweet smelling essential oil contains antioxidants that will repair damaged hair and add a shine to dull locks. Geranium essential oil is best known for strengthening hair follicles and strands.
