Do You Include Lavender Oil In Your Healthy Hair Care Routine?

February 9, 2015

When I’m looking for a soft subtle scent, I always go for lavender.  Lavender oil is known for its stress relieving properties, and it often included in spa products for that reason.  Turns out the scent lowers your heart rate  and blood pressure, which helps you relax.  And who couldn’t use a little extra help relaxing?


Not only is lavender good for the mind, but its also beneficial for a healthy scalp and hair growth.  Because lavender oil is a natural anti-inflammatory, it is helpful for maintaining a health scalp.  It can be used to treat dandruff and psoriasis of the scalp.  By keeping these scalp conditions at bay, your scalp is able to be rejuvenated.   Lavender oil also enhances blood circulation, which will definitely improve the health of your scalp.  And what comes out of a healthy scalp? Healthy hair of course!


High stress levels can lead to many common hair and scalp issues, especially hair loss and alopecia areata.  What’s alopecia areata? Alopecia areata is a medical condition in which hair is lost from some or all areas of the body, usually from the scalp.  Because lavender oil is naturally helpful in reducing stress, it can be used along with other stress relievers to reduce the risk of hair loss or alopecia arreata.  A relaxing scalp massage with lavender oil can help cure insomnia and improve sleep quality, and it relaxes you and helps you get rid of anxiety. This in turn helps control hair loss, as insomnia, stress, depression are among the common and probable causes of this problem.   When we get enough sleep and have mental peace, this ensures that hair loss stays in control.
