ESSENTIAL OILS FOR HAIR CARE

Essential oils help to balance oils, cleanse and refresh hair and scalp. They work like a tonic and promote shiny hair. Here are some of my favorite essential oils for hair care.

Clary Sage Salvia sclarea is balancing (helps to balance sebum), calming and regulating. Use for most hair types especially dry and oily.
