Oil Controlling Shampoo For Oily Hair & Oily Scalp
We all dream of having soft and silk hair that can be easily handled, and, in this search, we always end up spending a lot on lavish hair treatments at hair spas.
But often all we need is basic natural products.
- 1 tbsp of baking soda
- 10 drops of Lavender oil
- 1 cup of distilled water
- 2 drops lemon juice
- 5 drops of essential oils like Eucalyptus, tea tree, or peppermint
- Take the distilled water in a bowl or cup.
- To this, add the baking soda and mix well using a spoon.
- Now add the lavender oil and the essential oil of your choice and keep stirring.
- Finally, add the lemon juice.
- Transfer this mixture to a pump bottle and store it in a cool, dry location where direct sunlight is not affected.
- You can store this for 10 days; however, I would recommend you to make a new batch before every use because we don’t wash our hair that frequently.
- Use on wet hair as you would normally shampoo your hair and then rinse thoroughly.
Baking soda is not only a fantastic time-saving hack for oily hair, but it can also potentially minimize oil overproduction, assuming we don’t allow too much to build up.
The oil on our scalp is produced in the same way as the oil on our skin is produced by the sebaceous glands.
These glands function to produce an oily substance called sebum that passes through hair follicles or pores to the surface of our skin, where it hydrates and protects our complexions.
When too much sebum is stripped away, either from soapy hair washes or harsh shampoos, our bodies will cause sebaceous glands to create more to make up for what has just been lost, which only leads to even more oily scalp.
Lavender oil is an essential oil derived from flowers of lavender.
Studies have shown that topical use of lavender oil promotes hair growth.
- It increases the number of hair follicles on the head, resulting in a thicker and fuller hair.
- It also has amazing antimicrobial and antiseptic properties, making it suitable for use by people with dandruff.
- The hair follicles that develop when the scalp is treated with lavender oil are more deeply rooted, causing less hair loss.
- Ideal, particularly for those who appear to have oily hair.
- Lavender oil stimulates hair growth without the side effects of other topical hair growth ingredients.
- It prevents hair loss, moisturizes the scalp, and balances the development of sebum. Its daily usage results in fuller, thicker hair.
- Along with its many benefits to hair and skin, lavender oil has also been shown to reduce tension, which is also a source of hair loss.
- Lavender oil also has a distinct and friendly fragrance.
If you want to manage the oiliness, a mixture of henna and lemon juice might be a good choice.
Lemons are filled with the goodness of vitamin C, which helps to encourage the production of collagen.
As a consequence, the growth of hair is guaranteed.
The acidic essence of the lemon dissolves hair follicles and activates dormant ones.
Overall, lemon juice can be beneficial in reducing hair loss.
