We, at know how stress can affect your hair; and how stressful it is to battle with your hair....

We want to give you all the info you need to cope with any stress - including bad-hair days!

You can use essential oils for hair in two ways:

  • Add oils to commercially prepared shampoo. Use a gentle non-fragrant one for best results. I find that unscented baby shampoos work well. Add your choice of essential oils for greasy hair from the list below.
  • Make your own 'stew soap' and conditioner base. Add the appropriate essential oils and enjoy. This method is more laborious but so much more rewarding - you know what you are putting on your hair and it is much more economical.

Dry Shampoo For Greasy Hair

The following ingredients need to be mixed together thoroughly, and although this can be done by hand it is worth borrowing a blender if you don't have one. Most blenders have a tiny hole in the lid which could almost have been designed for adding essential oils, drop by drop, to blends. Make sure the lid is on tightly otherwise you could end up giving the entire kitchen a dry shampoo! Purified talc is the basis of many pharmaceutical drugs and most chemists stock the loose powder.

25g purified talc
10 drops Lemon
2 drops Rosemary

Blend well together. Use about a teaspoon on a real bristle brush and brush through the hair on the days you don't wet-shampoo but when your hair still needs some attention.

Conditioning Pack For Greasy Hair

Greasy hair needs conditioning as much as any other type of hair. Mix the following ingredients together in a bain-marie:

1 tablespoon lecithin base
1 teaspoon sunflower oil
1 tablespoon green clay
1 teaspoon vodka

Put the lecithin in the bowl first, then add the sunflower oil, vodka and green clay. Frankly, you will now have a yucky mess, but carry on - it will be worth it!

Now add your essential oils for greasy hair and mix well:
Birch (or Rosemary) 3 drops
Lavender 3 drops
Yarrow 2 drops

Smear the mixture over your hair, leave on for ten minutes, then shampoo off.

Vinegar Rinse for Greasy Hair

Add 3 drops of thyme essential oil to 1 tablespoon of cider vinegar and mix to dissolve the Thyme as much as possible. Then add to half a pint of spring water. Add this to the final rinse water in a bowl, after shampooing, and run it through your hair several times to cover well.
