"Lavender, mountain lavender" ... This flower has a strong and unforgettable smell, both fresh and soothing. The same two words can also describe the effect of lavender oil: the ability to soothe the problem or irritated scalp, thereby preventing the occurrence of certain diseases (such as dandruff or itching), in the tendency to give the hair a delicate, delicate flavor that can not be compared with most purchased shampoos. And if you add that your favorite cosmetics based on this oil will make your hair thick, healthy and beautiful, all for a long time, there will be only one question: why is there still no useful "elixir" in your house?
It is not necessary to buy shampoos or balms, which include lavender. Buy a simple lavender hair oil, make from it home masks and get an excellent result: dandruff is not, hair is thick, lively and shiny. However, if you wear a certain length of hair, they will have to be cut somewhat more often, since this oil activates the growth of each hair. By the way, owners of fatty hair, too, like it, because after him the curls shine with health - but no oil shine.
Before you make the first mask with lavender oil, you should know: since it has a large concentration of essential substances, it should not be used in its pure form or even as a base oil. This means is enriched with purchased shampoos or rinsers, it is added to hair masks or massage mixtures - finally, it is a good variant of aromatic oil.
If you took lavender oil in the bathroom, for 1 teaspoon of shampoo or other means you need to drip no more than 3-4 drops of oil. By the way, do not store the remains of unused oil-enriched products - its benefits last only a few hours, until the essential oils of lavender evaporated. For a better effect, these fragrant bathing should be done several times a week.
The base hair mask with lavender oil is as follows. Warm up in a water bath 2 tablespoons of base oil (take jojoba , castor or burdock ), add raw yolk and essential oils: 4 drops of lavender, two ylang-ylang and pink. This mask will improve and strengthen hair.
Hair falling out? Help them with this mixture: 50 ml of warm olive (warm it all in the same water bath), plus 10 drops of lavender oil. This mask should not only be rubbed into the skin, but spread across all the hair. Heat your head, hold for half an hour, rinse with shampoo. The latter, by the way, can also be enriched with lavender oil.
In addition to masks, you can prepare a home hair conditioner . The "recipe" of this product for a single wash is as follows: in 600 ml of warm water pour 100 ml of apple cider vinegar and 2 drops of essential oil of lavender. The product is applied to freshly washed hair, from roots to the ends, lasts 10 minutes, after which it is thoroughly washed off.
Unlike masks, aromatherapy does not strengthen the hair, but it is an excellent tool to give the dull curls of "expensive" shine. This procedure is simple: take a wooden comb, 5 to 6 drops of lavender oil drip onto its teeth. Now brush your hair about 5 (better than 10 minutes). In addition to the bright cosmetic effect, such combing brings health benefits. He can improve memory and mood, get a headache.
