Enhance Your Curls with Essential Oils
Why is it important to use natural products on our hair? First, we rub the product into our scalp which quickly absorbs products into our skin and blood stream. Secondly, we usually wash the product from our head down over the rest of our body. Third, the skin on our face comes into the same part of our pillow that our hair has rubbed on. All of those combine to make it healthier for us to use toxin free products on our hair, like this DIY sea salt spray.
As with all of our DIYs, we encourage you to find the combination of products that works best for your hair/skin type. We are each unique and our products can easily reflect that. Some carrier oils that have natural sun protection are olive oil, macadamia oil, almond oil, and coconut oil. Castor oil, and jojoba oil are said to help with hair loss; while grapeseed oil and avocado oil are said to help with dandruff. The essential oils in the recipe can be varied in many ways to help with hair growth, hair loss, dry hair, oily hair, scalp health, etc. Figure out what works best for you! You can even customize your DIY sea salt spray according to the time of year.
