When it comes to taking care of myself my hair usually ends up falling to the bottom of the list since I prefer to throw it up into a bun and forget about it altogether.
Recently, however, I have been trying to make the extra effort to do a deep conditioning or an oil hair treatment a few nights out of the month.
They are fast and simple with only a few ingredients and a few spare minutes to apply then go to sleep and let the magic happen.
– 4 oz. Olive Oil
– 2 Drops Lavender Oil
– 3 Drops Peppermint Oil
– 4 Drops Rosemary
This amount of oil should last for many hair treatment and should be stored in a glass bottle since essential oils eat away at any plastic materials.
For this hair treatment I decided to reach for olive oil because of its heartiness as well as the fact that it is a kitchen staple for most.
As for the essential oils, rosemary is a very well know treatment for thick hair growth. Peppermint cleanses as well as promotes hair growth and gives the scalp a pleasant, tingling feeling. Lavender also promotes hair growth, as well as having a deep conditioning effect on both a dry and oily hair and scalp.
This hair treatment is incredibly moisturizing and helps with hair growth but most of all it smells amazing and is the perfect scent combination for a relaxing transition to nighttime.
Apply no more than one to two tablespoons to scalp and massage as well as disperse evenly through hair. Put your hair up and either cover your pillow or hair to avoid making a mess while sleeping and wash out thoroughly in the morning.
This oil can also be used to moisturize and smooth out hair by applying a few drops and massaging it through your hair as a daily hair serum.
