DANDRUFF & ITCHY SCALP
Thyme essential oil is antimicrobial in nature and so its usage can help treat itchy scalps plagued by bacteria and fungus. It is best used with grape seed oil as a carrier, since the former also contains Vitamin E and linoleic acid, which nourish the scalp and help prevent dandruff.
ALL HAIR TYPES
Still a bit puzzled? You won’t go wrong with rice bran and hemp seed oils, which suit all types of hair. Rice bran contains vitamin E and creates a harder shell around the cuticle so your strands suffer less breakage; while hemp seed oil is packed with amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, and minerals that make hair stronger and healthier overall.
You can also custom blend various oils according to your hair needs. For example, if you have coarse hair that’s also afflicted with dandruff, mix coconut oil and thyme essential oil. Similarly, you can use a nourishing oil for scalp and a light oil for hair strands. So, use your own experience of your hair and create a personalized oil blend for yourself. Or pick one up off the store shelves – just read the ingredient list to know whether it suits your strands.
