Hair Health TIPS!
- Carrier oils come with amazing hair health benefits. Choose from our wide selection and add a few drops to your above hair mask recipe!
- Avocados are great to add to your favourite hair mask recipe! Avocados are rich in fatty amino acids that help coat your hair and help it retain its natural moisture. They are also rich in vitamins A, B6, D, and E, and minerals like copper and iron which help nourish your hair and scalp. This also helps promote healthy hair growth!
- Lavender, peppermint, rosemary, clary sage and cedarwood essential oils are great at helping hair that battles to grow or for addressing hair loss. Just add a few drops to your favourite basic hair mask recipe above
- Lemongrass and tea tree essential oil are both great for treating dandruff!
- Ylang-ylang oil is ideal for those with dry scalps, as it can stimulate sebum production. A lack of oil and sebum causes hair to become dry and brittle. Ylang-ylang can improve hair texture and reduce hair breakage
- To give your hair an amazing boost from the inside, remember that a healthy diet and lots of fresh water can make all the difference! You can also take a supplement specifically formulated to promote healthy hair growth – such as Solgar Skin, Nails & Hair!
Fun Hair FACT
Did you know? Rinsing your hair with cold water helps with closing your cuticle after your hair is washed. If you use cold water for your final rinse then there's a much better chance that your hair will stay shiny, healthy and frizz-free for a longer period of time ☺
