Taking Care of Your Hair Using Essential Oils!

Taking Care of Your Hair Using Essential Oils!

I am super-duper excited to be joining Kerri and all my oily friends this week to share tons of ways to detox your home!  Did you see her homemade mouthwash?!  Cool!

I am sharing about hair care using Young Living oils…..we have an abundance of hair around here, as you can see.

Taking care of your hair with essential oils! -- The Pennington Point

My girls and I all work hard to keep our hair healthy and nice looking.  Several of my daughters have used the no-poo method (where you don’t use shampoo at all) and they liked it in some ways, but it was hard to keep up with.  Right now we are using natural shampoos, but we are always looking for new ideas that are natural, easy and less damaging to our hair.

So when I tried this recipe for “Sweet & Sassy Hair” from the book, “The Chemical Free Home” by Melissa Poepping I was thrilled!  It is easy to use and makes your hair so shiny and bouncy!  I just put it into a little glass spray bottle (I buy these where I buy my rollon bottles) and keep it with my hair products.  After I wash my hair, I spray this on while it’s still wet and let it dry.  I am thrilled with how healthy my hair feels!

My recipe is slightly different than the one in the book because I didn’t have one of the oils she suggests.  So I’ll share my altered recipe (which I love!) for you.

Hair care using essential oils!

Sassy Hair Spritz

Fill an 8oz. amber glass bottle about 2/3 full with distilled water and 1 TBSP of witch hazel (this helps it last longer).  Add 12 drops lavender, 8 drops lemon, 8 drops rosemary and 4 drops geranium.  Shake well before using.  Spray on wet hair.

Yep.  That’s it.  It smells WONDERFUL and it’s so good for your hair and scalp.  You could also add Melaleuca if you have a problem with dandruff or scalp irritation.

You can make a scalp/hair conditioner by using jojoba oil as a base instead of water.  Just mix it into a cup and massage it into your scalp and let it sit while you’re in the shower and then wash it out.  Add a little peppermint to it for a scalp tingling extravaganza.  And if you (or someone you love) deals with stinky hair, add some Melrose to it.  That’s one oil I use often with my teens!

  1. I just tried this. I have been using a homemade spray with only Rosemary, so I hope this will be even better! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I was wondering why you spray instead of using a squeeze bottle. And being new to E. Oils I was wondering where you buy your glass bottles? I haven’t seen any before.

  3. Oooh, I need me some sassy hair – but with short hair, don’t think it matters, but I have a daughter who will eat this up and who already loves using oils!! Thanks for this!!

  4. Love this idea! Hoping it helps my hair that has been falling out like crazy lately and super dry!

  5. Will have to try this. My hair gets super dry from overusing heating products. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I’ll have to try this sometime. Lately I’ve been doing the baking soda and vinegar routine on my hair, and I’m really liking how my hair feels. A few weeks ago I forgot the soda, so I just used my salon-quality shampoo that I have in the shower, but I didn’t like the results quid as much.

    But what I thought you might find interesting is not that, but what I add to the vinegar. You see, I detest vinegar. I don’t like vinegar pickles, and I use lemon juice in recipes that call for it. So put it on my hair? Well, I recently joined Young Living, and Joy was one of the first blends I purchased. I add 3 drops to the vinegar, and it smells like a fancy flower-scented conditioner! So maybe that is the reason my hair is so nice!

  7. I love this post! Thanks for this valuable information. Jojoba is such a powerful and natural element to use on your hair.
    It’s known as the only compound in nature that closely resembles the human sebum. This enables jojoba to easily penetrate the skin and scalp and provide the essential nutrients needed for keeping your hair and body healthy. Using natural essential oils for hair treatment is simply awesome. I’ll certainly give your recipe a try.
