Healthy Hair Ingredient | Lemongrass Essential Oil Is The Sweetness For Healthy Scalp

Lemongrass Essential Oil Is The Sweetness For Healthy Scalp

Have you ever purchased a hair product and thought that you could create something close to it for budget reasons? Or have you caught the aroma of something you would like in your hair every single day?

I surely have!

I love all products that have a citrus or lemon smell. Those aromas tend to last long in my hair and I love when I catch a whiff of my fruity-hair. I first learned this when I purchased Alikay Naturals Lemongrass Leave In Conditioner and Alikay Naturals Crème Brulee Curling Delight. I absolutely love the lemon smell of both products...however, both are over the budget for my hair care.

I decided to find this scent that I love so much and create my own oils, crèmes, and leave-ins...and I finally found it!

What is lemongrass oil?

Lemongrass oil is extracted through the steam distillation of dried lemongrass.

What are the benefits of lemongrass essential oil?

Lemongrass is helpful for treating digestive issues, bacterial/fungal infections, bring down a high fever, and reduce inflammation.

Lemongrass is known to fight hair loss, treat oily hair, and cure scalp conditions. It is an antibacterial, which will keep the scalp in a healthy condition for healthy growth. Lemongrass can also strengthen hair follicles to prevent hair loss.

How can I use lemongrass essential oil?

1/4 cup. of any carrier oil of your choice
3-5 drops of lemongrass essential oil

Massage the mixture on your scalp for 5 minutes. Be sure to focus on the hairline for extra love and protection

Cover your hair with a plastic cap and keep on your hair for 15-20 minutes. Add a hooded dryer to do a hot oil treatment for further benefits.

Wash your hair out thoroughly with shampoo/co wash and proceed with deep conditioning.

Use other essential oils in the mixture for added benefits.

You can also create a refreshing foot bath, use as a massaging oil, and spray diluted lemongrass to kill pet fleas and lice.
