I always had very long hair, ever since I remember. Only in Grade 2 my parents chopped it off, so I have my class picture with super short hair.
Naturally, when I came to my teenage years, I didn’t appreciate having waist long, thick hair and I cut it several times, then I permed it and colored it over and over. My hair got weaker and weaker and is now probably on half the strength and number as it was 20 years ago. Go figure.
Then came pregnancy, the dreaded time for woman’s hair (not only hair). Really wish I knew about essential oils back then. But I didn’t so I chopped my hair short, trying to ease the damage and hair loss. It was heart breaking.
Also, the shorter my hair goes, the curlier it goes. So with my long bob now, I am like a Bon Jovi double from the 80ties. I kid you not. If I want smooth texture, I have to blow dry or iron my hair. That causes more damage so I try to avoid it and rock my messy curls
I have learned one thing. Oil up! Yes, we have amazing oils that help us with anything and everything and hair is not an exception. In the Japanese Starter Kit, there is Lavender and Rosemary and I always recommend to add Cedarwood to the first order, so my new member can start making her hair treatments right away.
Why? Lavender, Rosemary and Cedarwood is my Holy Trinity for all things hair.
Lavender Essential oil can speed up hair growth. Knowing that lavender oil has properties that can generate the growth of cells and reduce stress, researchers on one study found that this oil was able to generate faster hair growth. It also has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, which can improve scalp health.
Rosemary essential oil helps to improve both hair thickness and hair growth. It has the ability to improve cellular generation.
Cedarwood essential oil is thought to promote hair growth and reduce hair loss by balancing the oil-producing glands in the scalp. It also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which can treat different conditions that may contribute to dandruff or hair loss. Included in a mixture with lavender and rosemary, cedarwood extract was also found to help to reduce hair loss in those with alopecia.
During summer, I like to add Peppermint and for my friends who just had baby, I include Clary Sage in this mix.
Here is my recipe for great and highly effective hair mask
10 drops of Lavender Essential oil
10 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil
10 drops of Cedarwood
30 ml of Castor oil
60 ml of Hemp oil (can be Coconut oil too)
One 100 ml pump container
First mix the essential oils in the container and let sit for few hours together, so the oils can synergy together. Then add Castor oil and hemp oil and swirl well, so it all mixes properly. Do not shake it, it would oxidize the oils and you don’t want that.
About 30 min before you will be washing your hair, spray the mixture on your roots and massage well into the scalp. The mixture is thick, thanks to the Castor oil, so be generous with it and spray it all over your head. Leave on for at least min. You can leave it on longer
Then wash it off with Shampoo as you’re used to. You can also use my Shampoo bar Recipe that is fantastic and has same essential oils to support beautiful hair.
What’s the best about this Hair treatment is that it contains zero toxic chemicals, just pure goodness. And if you need longer lashes, you can put some of this mixture into an empty mascara container and use it as you Eyelash Serum!
If you do not want a Mask, but a spray that you can use every day, make our Mermaid Hair Spray
Mermaid Hair Spray
30 drops of Lavender
30 drops of Cedarwood
30 drops of Rosemary
1/4 of the container to be filled with Witch Hazel
Fill rest with distilled water
I use 200 ml Sprayer bottle
You can use this spray daily to boost your hair growth. It’s great. Switch is up by adding Peppermint, Clary Sage or Idaho Blue Spruce (or any of the woodsy pine tree oils)
