Hi everyone,
I was hoping someone might have a recommendation for aromatherapy products that could help with dry hair. My hair is healthy, but it can get very course and brittle in the winter months or after coloring it. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks, Sandra

Hi Sandra, Gosh you must think we're awful here! Sincere apologies for missing your question way back in April. We have been working really hard to make this resource available to all aromatherapy enthusiasts and unfortunately early on in its teething days when the system was being set up, we must have lost your question in the same place that lost socks go. Anyway, I do hope you'll forgive us and here are some aromatherapy ideas for you try out to help with dry hair. Auroma has an additive-free and fragrance-free shampoo and conditioner, both of which are all plant-derived and so based on natural oils. I have found an excellent holistic hairdresser who uses only these base products and pure essential oils in her professional practice and I have to say I was very impressed by the results on mly own hair. Needless to say she has a blossoming clientelle due to her skills and unique approach to salon hair-care. So I would recommend starting with these as your base-products and selecting from a range of the following essential oils to start. You should always be drawn towards the eo's you use - it's vital that you like what you blend. Lavandula officinalis is an excellent balancer for skin and hair, antibacterial and also soothing. Sandalwood has been used for centuries as an eo that helps maintain moisture in skin and therefore hair too. Other possibilities would be frankincense - restorative and preservative - myrrh is very similar. I would suggest you blend either of these oils with lavender to sweeten the fragrance. Geranium Bourbon is another suggestion due to its reputaion for being able to normalize sebum production and since this is your natural oil supply, stimulation of your own sebum production would help moisturize your hair from the inside out. Blend your choice of eo's - up to 3 of your favorites - at a total of 6-8 drops in 1 tablespoon of base - shampoo and conditioner. Leave the conditioner on in a warm, humid atmosphere for at least 3 minutes - shower or bath is perfect. Then rise and style as usual. You can also give yourself a hot oil treatment. Blend 12-15 drops in 1 fluid ounce of avocado, jojoba or sweet almond oil (Auroma has a wide range to choose from) and then massage into your scalp and roots of your hair before going to bed. Wrap your head and hair in cling-wrap and even put a tight fitting hat on - then go to bed. IN the morning shampoo and condition as usual. If you don't want to do this all night - quite understandable if you have a partner that wouldn't appreciate this - then simply have a night in with a good video and treat yourself to a hot oil treatment whilst relaxing. Shampoo before bed or even better still before going out for the evening. You'll see the difference. I do this every now and then when my hair has been mis-treated - and especially during the summer months. Come to think of it its also a great rebalancer for hair in the winter too with dry centrally-heated environments. Hope this helps and it's not too late. Please let me know if we can be of any further help. Enjoy your blending! Best Carolyn
