Ever since I was a baby, I struggled with sensitive skin and skin conditions. I felt like there was no end in sight when it came to finding something that actually worked on my skin and scalp issues. Topical steroids and prescription shampoos were my go to for a long time until I learned about natural living and clean ingredients. I realized that steroids and shampoos from my doctor were actually not safe nor were they the answer to my issues. Finding the root cause to what’s causing the skin & scalp irritation is key. It is possible to heal from a childhood issue once you know the root cause to that issue. For me it was parasites, heavy metals, and mold. Detoxing my body from those things helped me to see an incredible improvement in my skin health! I noticed less hair loss and a decrease in dry skin, especially on my scalp.

Understanding Non-Toxic Ingredients

Thankfully there are things you can do to calm your scalp while healing. Whether it’s eczema or scalp psoriasis, it’s important to know, both can be calmed. Herbal remedies are a great and natural way to calm the skin, scalp, and body. When I was introduced to herbs 7 years ago I had no idea what was good for what. Now after becoming a CNHP, I have a good understanding of herbs and their medicinal uses. There are so many great herbs that can help calm scalp conditions and promote healthy hair growth naturally. The cool thing, there are no crazy side effects from using natural herbs. Not only herbs, but also finding the right essential oil blend for dry, irritated scalp is key. These natural remedies also have antibacterial properties to keep your scalp clean as well as promote new hair growth. 

Why Herbs and Essential Oils for Scalp Health & Hair Growth

Herbs and essential oils can be excellent for the scalp and hair growth. The cool thing is they are pretty affordable and have so many medicinal properties. So many hair care products on the market today cause more harm than good. It’s sad to say it, but companies can green wash their products and make them sound safe. When in all reality, the ingredients don’t reflect the safety of their marketing schemes. Not only the lack of good ingredients but most will strip your hair and scalp of its natural oils. The natural oils in your hair and scalp are vital for the health and integrity of your scalp. Even if you have oily hair, it’s important to know, a healthy amount of good oil is beneficial. Don’t be afraid to use a hair oil to balance your scalp. A lot of oils have antibacterial & antifungal properties making it balancing for oily hair. 

There are also herbs and essential oils that help promote blood flow to the hair follicle and stimulate hair regrowth. Both will also have anti-inflammatory properties to ensure a healthy scalp.

When searching for the right scalp or hair growth oil, it’s important to always check the ingredient label. If you cannot read or understand the words on there, it may be a good sign to put it back. Transparency is everything, so if there isn’t an ingredient list or label you probably cannot trust it. Look for simple, wholesome, safe, and clean ingredients. 

Here is a list of things to look for when shopping;

  • Herbal extracts
  • Herbal Infusions (such as rosemary oil)
  • Essential oils (not fragrance oils or natural fragrance oils) (tea tree oil, lavender oil, peppermint oil are all great)
  • Organic Carrier oil (olive oil, avocado oil, castor oil, jojoba oil, aragon oil, coconut oil)

How Long Should I let Hair Oil Stay in My Hair?

We recommend at least 30 minutes. 4 hours is recommended for those with inflammation of the scalp or those needing hair thickness.
