Message me for more information or to customize a product that best fits your wants and needs. Thanks! - Kayla K. (owner of KKś Happy Home Remedies) email@example.com LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL Lavender oil can speed up hair growth. Knowing that lavender oil has properties that can generate the growth of cells and reduce stress, researchers on one animal study found that this oil was able to generate faster hair growth in mice. It also has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, which can improve scalp health. It is also important to point out that the positive psychological effects of lavender oil, which have been observed in several studies, can also influence hair and scalp health. Stress is one of the leading causes of hair loss in both men and women and can be targeted with lavender oil aromatherapy. Further, immune activation and inflammation are strongly associated with anxiety and stress, both of which can lead to poor scalp health and hair loss. By providing both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties to the scalp, lavender oil improves overall scalp health. A healthy scalp is essential to new hair growth, so this may also aid in promoting hair growth. PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL Peppermint oil can cause a cold, tingling feeling when it increases circulation to the area it’s applied to. This can help promote hair growth during the anagen (or growing) phase. One study found that peppermint oil, when used on mice, increased the number of follicles, follicle depth, and overall hair growth. That said, a recent 2014 study in mice showed that peppermint essential oils could hold a lot of promise for hair growth. Researchers noticed the hair grew faster and thicker, and blood flow to undernourished hair follicles increased. The study opens a door to exploring peppermint essential oil’s benefits for human hair growth. ROSEMARY ESSENTIAL OIL If you want to improve both hair thickness and hair growth, rosemary oil is a great choice thanks to its ability to improve cellular generation. According to one Source, rosemary oil performed as well as minoxidil, a common hair growth treatment, but with less scalp itching as a side effect. In recent years, there have been claims that the oil may be great for hair growth. Some say it could even prevent hair loss, pointing to Mediterranean cultures’ use of rosemary in hair rinses to promote hair growth for hundreds of years as supporting evidence. Like peppermint essential oil (also used to promote hair growth), rosemary essential oil strengthens circulation. As a result, it could prevent hair follicles from being starved of blood supply, dying off, and leading to hair loss. Beyond stimulating hair growth, rosemary essential oil is used to prevent premature graying and dandruff. It may also help dry or itchy scalp. According to some scientific evidence, rosemary may benefit nerve tissue. Carnosic acid, an active ingredient in the plant, healed tissue and nerve damage in one study. This ability to heal nerve endings may rejuvenate nerves in the scalp too, in turn possibly restoring hair growth. More revealing recent studies show that rosemary directly helps protect against hair loss. One 2015 trialTrusted Source pitted the essential oil against minoxidil, commercially known as Rogaine. Both were used on human subjects with androgenetic alopecia (male or female pattern baldness). Results showed that rosemary essential oil was just as effective a minoxidil. During the process, it helped the side effect of itchy scalp more successfully than minoxidil. CEDARWOOD ESSENTIAL OIL Cedarwood essential oil is thought to promote hair growth and reduce hair loss by balancing the oil-producing glands in the scalp. It also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which can treat different conditions that may contribute to dandruff or hair loss. t has been scientifically proven that when combined with a few other natural oils cedarwood oil is capable of promoting hair growth. Alopecia areata is a disease that causes the hair follicles to stop working but not die. This leads to baldness. The double-blind study showed an improvement in hair growth for 44% of those tested. The changes were quite noticeable as the patients’ hair was restored in length, thickness, and even color. LEMONGRASS ESSENTIAL OIL Dandruff can be a common ailment, and having a healthy, flake-free scalp is an important part of hair health. Lemongrass oil is an effective dandruff treatment, with one 2015 study finding that it significantly reduced dandruff after one week. Lemongrass oil for dandruff is most effective when used daily. Lemongrass Oil has got antibacterial and antifungal properties due to which helps to keep scalp infections at bay and prevent hair fall. Lemongrass Oil has got anti-inflammatory and astringent properties due to which it is very beneficial in treating dandruff with effective home remedies, as it helps to soothe and calm down the itchy and irritated scalp. Lemongrass oil acts as a good stimulant. Massaging Lemongrass Oil with a carrier oil helps to open up hair follicles and also promotes blood circulation. It helps to remove the dirt and grime which gets locked inside the pores and thereby promoting hair growth. CLARY SAGE ESSENTIAL OIL Clary sage oil contains the same linalyl acetate that helps make lavender oil so effective in increasing hair growth. It can improve hair strength, in addition to increasing hair growth, making hair more difficult to break. One of the most common uses of essential oils in hair care is strengthening hair or attempting to spur hair growth, and clary sage oil is no exception. Clary sage contains the same compounds that make lavender oil such a great hair growth stimulant, making it a great choice for helping you grow your hair as well. It also contains a good deal of nutrients, including Vitamins A, B, and C, as well as potassium and calcium. TEA TREE ESSENTIAL OIL Tea tree oil has powerful cleansing, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties. When used topically, it can help unplug hair follicles and increase hair growth. Tea tree oils come in many concentrations, so it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions. Some are highly concentrated essential oils, and other products are mixed in a cream or oil. A 2013 study even found that a mixture containing tea tree oil and minoxidil was more effective than just the minoxidil alone in improving hair growth, though more studies are needed on using tea tree oil only. A review in 2015 found tea tree is commonly used in anti-dandruff treatment products. YLANG YLANG ESSENTIAL OIL While those with oily hair and skin would want to skip this one, ylang-ylang oil is ideal for those with dry scalps, as it can stimulate sebum production. As lack of enough oil and sebum causes hair to become dry and brittle, ylang-ylang can improve hair texture and reduce hair breakage. COCONUT OIL Ideal for: All hair types, but particularly those with dry, damaged, or dull hair. Coconut oil works well for those wishing to repair brittle hair and split ends, and is recommended for people with slow hair growth.

Using it regularly also helps prevent hair loss and promotes healthy hair growth and a healthy scalp. Coconut oil improves the look of hair by helping it retain moisture and adding a beautiful, healthy shine. Many coconut oils also possess a delicious coconut scent that makes hair smell wonderful. ALMOND OIL almond oil is wonderful for your hair. It contains Vitamin E, fatty acids, proteins, and antioxidants, along with magnesium, which reduces hair breakage and helps it grow. People with mineral deficiencies are prone to slow hair growth and hair loss, so adding some almond oil into your diet can also greatly help with these issues. Whether used for cooking or beauty care, all-natural almond oil is best, as there are no added chemicals. Ideal for: Dry and damaged hair, dandruff-prone hair, and those with slow-growing hair or hair loss issues. Benefits: Almond oil moisturizes, seals, and protects hair and also protects against hair loss and breakage. Using it regularly helps you grow longer and stronger hair. OLIVE OIL Olive oil is another extremely versatile oil, derived from pressing olives. It has protective and moisturizing properties. Since it coats the hair shaft and shields keratin, olive oil has protective qualities. It also has exfoliating and dandruff-fighting properties when combined with lemon juice. When used regularly, olive oil can replace the need to use conditioner and other hair-smoothing products. Organic extra virgin olive oil is best since it is rich in natural antioxidants and does not contain any chemical ingredients. Ideal for: Damaged, dull, dry, or frizzy hair, as well as hair that is dandruff-prone. Benefits: Olive oil protects against heat damage, imparts a sleek look and shine, moisturizes, and gives damaged and broken hair a healthy appearance. AVOCADO OIL Avocado oil is rich in fatty acids and minerals, making it ideal for strengthening hair. The antioxidants and Vitamin-E in the oil make it excellent for taming frizz, locking in moisture, and retaining shine. Ideal for: Damaged, dull, dry, or frizzy hair. Benefits: Avocado oil helps to reduce frizz and increase shine. GRAPESEED OIL Grapeseed oil is an extract of cold-pressed grape seeds. It contains emollients, antioxidants, and nutrients that are essential to the growth of healthy hair and skin cells. While it possesses the same moisturizing qualities as many other natural oils, grapeseed oil is superior in its ability to treat brittle and weak hair and hair loss. It is also effective dandruff and dermatitis fighter and may help people regrow hair. This light and versatile green-colored oil are also beneficial for heart health when used for cooking. Pure, all-natural grapeseed oil is the best type to use for both cooking and skin and hair care purposes. Ideal for: Dry, dull hair and brittle hair, hair that is prone to getting greasy and dandruff-prone hair. It is also effective at combating hair loss. Benefits: Grapeseed oil moisturizes and conditions hair. It also makes hair strong and healthy and is effective in treating frizz and split ends. Grapeseed oil is helpful in fighting dandruff and reduces scalp inflammation in those who suffer from dermatitis. In addition, it blocks the production of DHT, a hormone that causes hair loss. The high content of Vitamin E in grapeseed oil encourages the production of linoleic acid, which helps restore strength and shine to weak and brittle hair.

I also take ashwagandha! Absolutely love it paired up with chamomile and lavender tea. 💚💜 I'm so glad to finally get to where I can share what I've learned. Back in high school I was more interested in Nathan's beautiful hair and causing trouble. Lol But Lavender is all over everything in my house. 😊 I'm obsessed with the healing aspects of nature. Did you know a powerful pain killer grows wild in most yards? Pretty purple wild weed cabbage and a thick stem tall plant.... Forget their actual names. Boiling the sticky sap creates a painkiller tea! Nasty though lol
