Combine rosemary oil with a base oil and massage the mixture thoroughly into your scalp. To increase its absorption wrap your scalp with saran wrap and then a layer of tinfoil. Sit, lay, or play in the sun for a minimum of 30 minutes and allow your hair to naturally heat up. If the sun is not out or you prefer the indoors, wrap your head in a damp, hot towel or use a hair blow dryer on it for five minutes. A rosemary hot oil treatment stimulates blood circulation and thus promotes hair growth. For further rosemary magic, use a refreshing daily rinse of rosemary leaves simmered in water and delay the onset of gray hair and promote retention of hair color.
Lavender oil is an amazing natural hair care product. It helps to alleviate and terminate dandruff while encouraging new hair growth and adding volume to the hair shaft. Mix several drops of lavender oil with a base oil to make an blend immediately ready for hair care. Another option is to make a lavender infused oil. Do so by placing a few sprigs of lavender in a glass container and filling it with extra-virgin olive oil. Seal the combination tightly and allow it to age for 3-4 weeks in a cool, dark place. Use your preferred oil concoction as a daily treatment by applying and leaving it on overnight, washing thoroughly in the morning. Use it is as a hot oil treatment by saturating your hair in your lavender oil blend and allowing your hair to heat via your preferred method.
Jojoba oil is a fantastic moisturizer that has been used for hundreds of years by Native Americans to moisturize and grow their hair. The molecular makeup of jojoba oil resembles the natural oil scalp glands produce. Apply jojoba oil directly to your hair or add a few drops of it to your conditioner to promote hair growth, hydration, and softness. Aloe Vera is another sensational, natural hair product used for centuries upon centuries by the Native Americans. Aloe Vera promotes hair growth, moisturizes the hair, and opens up previously blocked pores on the scalp to give all of your hair follicles a chance. Mixed with equal parts wheat germ oil and coconut milk you can create a natural shampoo that cleans, conditions, and vitalizes your locks.
