Having gorgeous hair doesn’t have to cost a fortune. In addition to general tips for caring for hair, essential oil blends have been known to improve the appearance of hair.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the results you’ll get. Essential oils make hair shiny, provide nourishment and moisturize dry or brittle hair.

When I first looked into using essential oils for my shampoo, it seemed complicated. There are tons of DIY recipes out there you can use but I suggest starting slow.

I’m going to cover the easiest way to use them and the best blends so you can have gorgeous hair starting today!

Boost Your Shampoo with Essential Oils

The most common and practical way to use essential oils on the hair is a shampoo. The easiest way to do this is by simply adding the oils to your favorite shampoo. You still get the benefits of the oils without having to fool with whipping up a recipe.

Here’s how:

  • Add 20 drops of your favorite essential oil or blend to 4 ounces of shampoo.
  • You can dilute essential oils with a quality hair-friendly carrier oil prior to adding to shampoo
  • Mix and Voila you’re ready to go.

Homemade Shampoo Recipe

If you’re interested in an all-natural approach, you can make your own shampoo with:

  • ¼ cup coconut milk; homemade or canned depending on your preference
  • ¼ cup liquid castile soap
  • 20 drops of essential oils (this is where your blends come in)
  • ½ teaspoon almond, olive or rosehip oil (optional to treat dry hair)

Shake well before each use, patch test first and it’s recommended not to use on children under the age of five unless you’re using a kid-safe essential oil. Add ¼ cup water if using foaming dispenser. This shampoo will keep for approximately one month.

Best Essential Oil Blends for Hair

Now that you know how to use essential oils for shampooing, here are my choices for the best blends for gorgeous hair. When you’re diluting essential oils for your hair, the best carrier oils to use are rosehip oil or argan oil.

Use equal parts of each oil or play around with combinations to find what appeals to you:

Everyday Use: Lavender oil, Rosemary oil and Chamomile oil (optional: add Carrot seed oil to moisturize)

Aromatic Blend: Lavender essential oil and Orange essential oil – this smells delish!

Clarifier: Peppermint, Lavender and Rosemary essential oils.

Dry Hair: Rose oil, Sandalwood oil, Ylang Ylang oil and Lavender oil; add 1 teaspoon Jojoba oil. It’s best to use a hot oil treatment first, which will allow the hair to fully absorb the oils.

Oily Hair: Rosemary, Eucalyptus oil, Chamomile oil, Cedarwood oil and Lemon essential oil. (This blend leaves behind clean, shiny hair with a fantastic fresh scent)

Dandruff Prone Hair: Use any of the blends above but add Tea Tree essential oil.

Shine Booster: Chamomile essential oil, Lavender oil, Lemon oil, Tea Tree essential oil and Bergamot essential oils.

No matter what type of hair you have, you can benefit from quality essential oils. Remember, a little goes a long way. You’ll find that you save money and start getting amazing compliments on your gorgeous hair.
