7 best essential oils for your hair type

Due to the popularity of the previous post ‘5 best essential oils for your skin type‘ this post now discusses the 7 best essential oils for your hair type.

Like skin types, there are also many different hair types and using the best essential oils recommended for each, is a great way to treat your hair. Many of the commercial hair care products on the market use chemicals that can actually damage your hair not to mention be detrimental to your health. By using natural hair care products with the addition of essential oils you can improve your hair’s natural state as well as look after your health.

A great way to do this is to make or buy a natural shampoo or conditioner base and add essential oils. Below is a list of the best essential oils for your hair type:

Oily: Clary Sage, Lavender, Lemon, Rosemary, Sage, Thyme, Yarrow

Dry: Carrot seed, Geranium, Lavender, Parsley, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Yarrow
