Essential Oils for Beautiful Hair

Essential Oils for Beautiful Hair

I was blessed with lots of hair, according to my hairdresser, but it's baby fine hair.

Growing up in Italy I was a hair model.  My hair was over teased, highlighted and over styled using several harsh products.  I will never forget the time my whole head of long hair was teased for a show. The makeup that day was very dramatic and heavy.  After the show I ran to my dear friend Claudia's Hair Salon in Trani, Puglia.  When she opened the door she didn't even recognize me.  I had been crying and my cheeks were lined with dark streaks of makeup.  She patiently combed my hair while I cried "cut it, just cut it". After several tears, a few hours and an entire tub of Biolage Conditioner my hair was back but severely damaged.  I think that marked the end of allowing hair stylists to tease my hair.

Fast forward to my thirties when hormonal and thyroid issues left my hair in a desperate state.  I lost lots of hair and had to cut it off.  Let's just say that short hair doesn't suit my face.

I thought I was doing all I could to promote healthy, strong hair with my diet and using expensive Kerastase hair products.

Along with a healthy diet, the Lifelong Vitality Supplements, Bone Broth and Vital Proteins Collagen, these are the Essential Oils from doTERRA that have helped restore my hair.

I now use doTERRA's Salon Protecting Shampoo and Smoothing Conditioner.  This line is filled with incredible Essential Oils that help nourish and strengthen hair.  It is also free of toxins, a non-negotiable for me.  Remember that whatever we apply to our skin and hair is absorbed into our bloodstream.  I highly recommend you check out the EWG.org website to see how your products rate on the toxicity scale.

These are some of my favorite Essential Oils that I like to add to my shampoo and conditioner.  1-2 drops is all you need as these are Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils and highly effective.

  • Lavender: keeps hair and scalp clean, thick, and healthy
  • Sandalwood: Improves the overall look of hair
  • Melaleuca: keeps hair thick, clean and healthy
  • Geranium: keeps the scalp looking healthy, clean, and provides hair with a healthy, vibrant glow
  • Clary Sage: promotes healthy looking hair and scalp for fragile hair
  • Grapefruit: promotes hair growth and helps rejuvenate hair. It's also a great oil to use if you have oily hair.
  • Cypress: do you have oily hair? Apply this oil to shaft (not scalp)
  • Ylang Ylang: increases healthy, shiny hair
  • Rosemary: apply for an abundant looking head of hair and promote hair growth
