The transition towards a more chemical-free, toxin-free lifestyle should also include the products you choose to use for hair & scalp care. It is so important to realize that what we put on our skin or hair is also absorbed into our body. So where are you in this process? Looking for ways to nourish your hair & scalp can be overwhelming, and the beauty marketplace can be misleading. Consider this report where nearly 100 personal care products were in violation of a California law requiring that consumer be warned of the presence of cancer-causing chemicals.
Other things to bear in mind as you make this transition, several factors can have an affect on the health of your hair: lack of sleep, overuse of alcohol, synthetic chemicals in certain hair products, smoking, prescription drugs, and hairspray.
So how about an alternative? Young Living’s beauty products contain all natural-ingredients infused with essential oils that are free from harmful chemicals found in many mainstream products. Using essential oils for your hair & scalp has many benefits and your hair will smell amazing!
- Encourages hair growth and may help minimize hair loss
- Reduces dry scalp
- Encourages circulation to the scalp, which can lead to healthier, shiny hair
- Helps to remove chlorine and other harmful chemicals that have built up on your hair
- Helps to remove excess sebum that has hardened into plaque and built up on the scalp (which can result in hair loss)
Begin by selecting one of Young Living’s essential oil-infused shampoos or conditioners. You can give your hair an extra boost by adding a few drops of appropriate essential oils to your hand before adding the conditioner to your hair. Rinse with cool water to close your cuticle and seal in the moisture. Then, make your own nourishing hair and scalp spray from the recipes below.
