Hair is composed mainly of a protein called keratin, which also forms our nails and the outer layer of skin cells. Keratin is not a living substance, but is produced as the living cells in the hair follicle (the root) die.

As hair is a dead substance, aromatherapy cannot influence a lot the quality of hair. However, essential oils can be used improve the health of the scalp, on which the condition of the hair depends. A better health of the scalp means better-looking hair.

Essential oils for hair care

The essential oils you can use are:

  • Rosemary, which is used as hair tonic (for dark hair notably) for centuries
  • Camomile oil, which is better for blonde or light brown hair.

Of course, it will take time, especially for women with long hair. As hair growths around 1cm per month, you will need 3-6 months to see a difference in the hair near your head, and one year or more.

The good news is that you can easily integrate essential oils in your hair care routine, without extra efforts. You can add 15-20 drops in your bottle of conditioner and do a quick massage of the scalp when you apply it.

As you may not be applying conditioner near the roots of hair, a better option, is to do a massage oil by diluting 3 mL of essential oil in 60 mL of carrier oil. Then use one tablespoon of the mix to do a vigorous scalp massage one hour BEFORE shampoo. By doing this 2 times a week, the massage oil will last 2-3 months

Why before? Since oil attracts oil, using your preparation while your hair is dirty will actually remove some of the grease and will help eliminate more dirt during shampoo. And, as wet hair is more fragile, doing this will prevent breakage from scrubbing too vigorously in the shower.

A quick tip for massage and shampoo: avoid using your nails, as scratching cause burning and irritation and bacteria underneath your nails can lead to an infection.

If you suffer from dandruff, you use essential oils of Bergamot, Lavender or (better) a blend of the two. Mix them in equal quantities and add to a carrier oil in a 3% dilution, then apply in the same way as described above, before shampoo.
