How To Use Tea Tree Oil For Hair

tea-tree-oil

Tea tree oil has been used for thousands of years but has only recently started to become popular as a natural hair care product. The practice of using tea tree oil started in Australia, by native aborigines and was used to cure cuts, burns, boils and for use as an antiseptic. Tea tree oil is extracted from a narrow-leaved tree native to the northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia. Tea tree oil is an amazing natural beauty product that should be a staple in any woman’s beauty arsenal.  Tea tree oil is a great natural choice for cleansing hair because it won’t cause damage or dryness. It can be used for a number of hair and beauty problems and can help to reduce the effects of hair loss and promote hair growth. Tea tree oil is becoming more and more popular as a natural hair care product. It can be used alone or paired with a gentle shampoo, like ESSENTIOUS Exonerate to gently cleanse and moisturize the hair and scalp.

You can use tea tree oil to maintain a healthy scalp, but it is also important to foster scalp health from the inside. HAIRFINITY Healthy Hair Vitamins are formulated with hair specific nutrients that will promote hair that is healthier and more vibrant.

Carrier and Essential Oils

 

essentialoils

 

Knowing the difference between various types of oils can help you choose the right ones for your needs, especially if you love mixing up your own natural hair products at home.

What’s the Difference? 

Carrier oils are derived from plants. They’re fatty in nature and usually come from the seeds or nuts. They don’t often have a strong scent. It’s perfectly fine to use carrier oils all by themselves, although blending them with other oils is also acceptable. These oils can go bad or rancid after a period of time. Although you may only use a small amount of a carrier oil depending on the specific use, you’ll still use much more of these oils at a time than essential ones.

Essential oils come from plants or fruits, too, but are concentrated, and much more fragranced because they’re derived from the aromatic parts of the plant, such as the flowers, leaves or peel. When mixing these into oil blends, you only use a small number of drops, anywhere from one to a dozen or so. Because you use such minimal amounts, even a small bottle of essential oil lasts a long time for the average consumer. These oils don’t go rancid, but may lose their effectiveness and aroma after a number of years.

While you’ll find some carrier oils stored in glass bottles, they’re usually sold in plastic containers. Essential oils are stored in glass due to their high concentration levels.

Dealing with dandruff can be an exercise in frustration, especially if you’ve tried numerous remedies to get rid of this unsightly problem. If using harsh shampoos gives you pause, more natural remedies may be in order. These natural ingredients and products have been shown to relieve dandruff. Just because they’re natural doesn’t mean you should overdo it, however, so follow guidelines in order to make your problem better instead of worse.

Rosemary:  You can use this herb in a couple of different ways to naturally fight dandruff. Infuse one rosemary tea bag in half a cup of hot water and allow to cool. Spritz this mixture onto your hair and massage it into your scalp. You can also use rosemary essential oil, adding a few drops to your shampoo; again, focus on your scalp when cleansing. Try either of these treatments once a week.

How to Avoid Hair Loss

 

hairloss

Since some men fight male pattern baldness any way they can, you know how much more distressing it is for women to face hair loss. After all, a woman’s hair is her “crowning glory,” and a head full of long, thick hair is the envy of many. To hold onto every strand, taking good care of your mane is important. Sometimes, hair loss is genetic or due to medical conditions. Outside of that, there are ways to avoid losing your precious hair.

Be careful with chemicals: Relaxer overprocessing is one of the most common causes of hair loss, temporarily and permanently. These chemicals should only come into contact with the hair, not the scalp. They shouldn’t be left on longer than recommended, which is why it’s best to visit an experienced stylist for the process. If you do relax at home, follow the directions to the letter; don’t be tempted to leave the relaxer on longer in an effort to get bone straight hair, which often lacks body.

Seal in Moisture with Natural Products

When it comes to moisturizing your hair, you prefer natural products over those packed with ingredient names you can barely pronounce. While natural ingredients have been around forever, they’re getting a lot more recognition in the beauty industry today, so they’ve become much more accessible and affordable. Remember that water actually adds moisture to your hair; while some products claim to moisturize, all they really do is seal in that moisture. These natural products work in conjunction with water to keep your mane supple and soft. A regular sealing routine prevents dryness, so don’t forget your ends.

Hair Breakage vs Hair Shedding – How to Know the Difference

breakage

Everyone loses hair each day. The average amount of hair shedding is between 50 and 100 strands per day. It’s normal to lose slightly more, but if you’re experiencing a great deal of shedding, you’re probably wondering why.  Hair shedding is different from breakage, and both excessive shedding and hair breakage are areas of concern.

How to Tell the Difference Between Breakage and Shedding 

Take a look around you after styling your hair. Do you see a lot of short, broken-off hair strands on your bathroom sink or floor? Are there a few sitting on your shoulders? Once you pick these up, examine them. Chances are you won’t see a bulb, where the hair was pulled from the root. Instead, these rootless hairs represent breakage, and are often the result of too much manipulation, heat or chemical damage.  Hair that sheds excessively, on the other hand, is a normal part of the growth cycle, is generally longer than broken hair, and it retains the small white bulb that was attached to the follicle.  Excessive shedding could be the result of postpartum or seasonal changes, or even medications you take. If you suspect anything outside of that, consult your doctor.

Hair weaves can do much more than make your hair look longer and thicker. Wearing a weave is also a smart way to protect your hair if you’re trying to gain length.

Protective styles take many forms, whether your hair is natural, relaxed or texturized. Braids and twists are popular options for natural ladies, but sew-in weaves work for anyone. Sew-ins are the most gentle way to add extension hair for long-term use. There’s no glue involved, so when it’s time to remove them, you don’t have to worry about losing hair as you pull them off.

How do these extensions protect your hair and allow you to retain growth?
