Essential Oils for Healthy Hair

Select the essential oils that best match your health concerns and personal scent preference, and simply add a few drops of each one to your normal shampoo or conditioner until you start to see the benefits. Or, to make a nutrient-rich oil treatment, mix 3-5 drops into a tablespoon of carrier oil (never apply essential oils directly to the scalp as they can be too harsh).
