How To - Mix and Blend Essential Oils & Apply for Softer Healthier Hair

In the past my hair oiling related posts have been some of my most popular, so today I thought I would share with you how I oil my hair, as can be quite a daunting task. But once you know how the results are amazing.

You can read my last hair oiling post HERE

Bits and pieces you'll need //

A carrier oil - I use coconut, almond or jojoba - if you use coconut you'll need to heat it up, as it is typically sold in a solid form, and work quickly before it hardens again.

An essential oil - I'm currently using chamomile and lavender - only use a maximum of three essential oils at a time, the more you use, the harder it is to know which one works best for your hair.

A mixing bowl preferably one that you don't mind ruining

Measuring spoons or electronic scales

An old towel

Cotton wool balls or a tinting brush - both optional

A plastic brush or one you don't mind ruining

Cling film or a plastic shower cap - both optional

How to //

Step One - measure 20ml of your chosen carrier oil into your mixing bowl

Step Two - add in five drops of your chosen essential oils - this is five drops in total, not five drops of each oil.

Step Three - wrap your self up in your towel - hair oiling is hella messy

Step Four - dip your fingers, cotton ball or tinting brush into the oil and massage gently into your scalp and brush through to the ends of your hair with your brush. Repeat this until your entire scalp is covered with oil. If your have any remaining, you can massage this through the ends, if you don't mix more oils and carry on.

Step Five - give your scalp a good massage, I start at the top of my scalp and work downwards, this will stimulate your scalp and hair follicles - and its also relaxing.

Step Six - tie your hair up in a high bun and leave your oils in for as long as you want. At this point you can also put on your shower cap or wrap your hair in cling film. I typically leave my oil in for the entire day, and wash out before bed. Just remember to rinse your hair for slightly longer, just encase you haven't shampoo'd all the oils out.

I hope this removes any mystery you had about hair oiling, and I hope it inspires you to give it a try.
