Essential oils for oily scalp

by Jennifer


Can you advise on essential oils for an oily scalp? I'm looking for an overnight treatment/recipes that I can wash out in the morning if possible?
I have absolutely no experience in this field so would be grateful of any information.

Kind regards

Help for Oily Hair
by: Anonymous

Hi, I have hair problems also, but I am on the opposite end with dry hair. I've made a lot of recipes for my daughter who also suffered with oily hair and this is the best that I've found for her.

First of all; the oiliness may be caused by shampooing too often and with harsh shampoo. It just becomes a never ending cycle.

Switch to a natural shampoo, shampoo as much as you feel is needed for a week then start to taper off. It will take a little time to get the chemical gunk off your hair and scalp.

Also, oily hair needs moisture too so start using a natural and gentle conditioner.

The next best thing I can recommend is to use a vinegar rinse.

Mix 3 drops of thyme essential oil (do an allergy test first) in 1 tablespoon cider vinegar to dissolve.

Add this mixture to a 1/2 pint distilled water.

Add this mixture to a bowl of distilled water that you will do your final rinse in.

After shampooing rinse your hair in the bath or shower as usual then put your hair in the bowl you prepared.

Run the water through your hair several times by using your hand or cup to pour over your head. Dry and or style as usual.

Please do as much reading as you can on the use and safe handling of essential oils before using any.

Vinegar and the distilled water alone will do something for the health of your hair but the essential oil will do a much better job. I hope this helps.
