Healthy hair starts from the inside out and you needn’t look any further than nature for the perfect formulas, no matter what your hair’s texture. This week we looked to the style experts for their advice when it comes to naturally nurtured hair that will shine through from first looks to last dance. So, here’s your essential guide to essential oils.
Strong, thick hair starts with a healthy scalp. Almond oil is non-greasy, easy to apply and it’s a great way to hydrate the scalp and prevent flaking or dry skin at your roots. It brings the moisture back and revitalizes hair, while doubling as an all-natural conditioner.
Macadamia nuts are rich in fatty acids, proteins and minerals, so your hair and skin will really benefit from this exotic and delicious nut’s oils and extract. It’s packed with antioxidants to help moisturize and soothe the skin and has the added bonus of anti-aging effects. And if you’re looking to plump up your tresses, the rich fatty acidic content of macadamia oil will make your hair feel thicker, while strengthening follicles and reducing hair loss.
Commonly used in the kitchen, it’s also a vital part of any natural hair care routine. Because of its light texture, sunflower oil is easy to mix with other oils and it stimulates growth! So, if you were hoping to rock the perfect updo, you may just gain the extra length you need. Sunflower oil’s healthy dose of Omega 9s, not only helps to reduce hair breakage, but can also eliminate frizz and promote shine and softness.
