I always knew, even as a little girl, that I wanted to be a hair stylist when I grew up, helping to make people look and feel their absolute best! I followed that path and have been doing hair now for the last 15 years. Even when we try to convince ourselves that it’s only hair and we shouldn’t get too attached, we do, because whether we want to admit it or not, it plays a huge role in how we feel about ourselves, and there’s no shame in that! It’s not vanity, it’s part of how we express ourselves and the neat thing is that we can change it whenever we want! Some like it long, some like it short, some like it blonde and some like it multi-colored, but the one thing that most of us can all agree on when it comes to our hair is that we want it to look and feel healthy!! Our family has been using doTERRA essential oils for two and a half years now and it’s been so fun learning different ways to incorporate my love of the oils into my love of creating beautiful hair!
The most important process to having healthy hair is to work from the inside out. I cannot stress this enough! Your hair and skin are the number one indicator of what’s going on inside your body. Lots of things can affect your hair in a negative way including poor nutrition, stress, medications, etc. So, my #1 tip to healthy hair is doTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality Pack! This is a set of three different supplements that work together to keep your body functioning at its optimum performance. Taking these every day will not only help to keep your hair healthy, but it will help it to grow faster as well! If you truly want healthy hair, especially LONG healthy hair, please don’t skip this step. While there are products that can help mask unhealthy hair, the only way to fully get rid of it completely, is to cut it off, so it’s best to have it grow in healthy from the get go! Lucky for you doTERRA has a special promotion happening this month where you can receive these supplements for FREE! Contact us for the details on this!
The next step to healthy hair is to be using quality shampoo, conditioner & styling products! doTERRA has an entire hair care line that is amazing! These already contain essential oils that are specially formulated to give you amazing results and a great scent so they’re perfect on their own or you can choose to add in some extra oils for added support if you’d like! I like to add a drop of each Lavender and Rosemary to my shampoo before I lather up to help keep my scalp free of dry skin cells and nourished, a healthy scalp = healthy hair!
After we’ve shampooed and conditioned, my girls and I like to use this DIY Tangle Taming Spray we made up. All you need is a glass spray bottle, water, and Lavender + Wild Orange essential oils and you’re good to go! This is inexpensive, detangles well, and BONUS, your hair can act as a natural diffuser! I’ve also noticed that if we use this at night it keeps my kids’ hair soft even the next day, and my littlest girl has some pretty crazy curls going on!!
For styling products, you’ve got the Hold Glaze and the Root to Tip Serum which I can’t say enough good things about! I have long hair and I like to keep it soft and moveable and these two work together beautifully! I have found that the entire hair care line is pretty concentrated so less is more, don’t get all crazy with it 🙂
And here’s my bonus tip for all you momma’s out there!!
If you have a severe phobia of lice such as myself (working in a salon will do that to you) you’ll appreciate this one! It’s a nice little concoction that doTERRA’s very own Dr. David Hill shared on his facebook page recently.
Back to School Blend
- 3 drops Clove
- 3 drops Melaleuca
- 8oz Water
- Glass Spray Bottle
Give the bottle a shake before each use and apply every day before the kids head out the door! It is called the back to school blend but I’d just go ahead and suggest that you use it anytime your kids are around other kids… trust me when I say that you are helping to make the world a better place when you help prevent the spread of lice!
As you can see, it’s simple & small tweaks that you can make in the hair care routine that you are already doing that can make all the difference! It’s not hard, it’s not overwhelming… chances are pretty good that you’re already washing your hair and throwing in a product or two, so what have you got to lose?! Swap out some products, add in an oil or two, and start poppin’ those LLV supplements and you’re golden!
If you don’t already have a doterra membership and would like to get some of these goodies into your hands for the best possible price let us know, we’d love to help you out!
