Your hair plays a crucial role in your appearance, and so it's important to take good care of it. Thankfully there are several essential oils that can help us with our precious locks. I want to share and go over not just the essential oils that are wonderful at supporting healthy hair, but also the products that doTERRA has created that will give you peace of mind, knowing they are chemical and toxin-free, contain the superior CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils, and are professional quality and grade.
Let's start with the essential oils that are great for hair health:
Tea Tree/Melaleuca - it helps prevent buildup of chemicals and dead skin, it's very cleansing and purifying to help maintain overall scalp health, and it's rejuvenating which helps hair look thick, clean and healthy.
Peppermint - increases circulation, provides freshness and a fun tingly sensation which can help with hair growth.
Lavender - can speed up hair growth, has antimicrobial properties that can help with itchy scalp or dandruff.
Niaouli - is a relative of Tea Tree, it helps keep the skin healthy-looking and clean.
Ylang Ylang - stimulates the production of sebum which keeps the hair healthy and conditioned, thus helping prevent split ends.
Rosemary - has mild cleansing properties, is stimulating to the follicles, and increases circulation which helps promote hair growth.
Cedarwood - balances the oil-producing glands which can help with hair growth, has cleansing and purifying properties which helps maintain an overall healthy scalp.
Now that you know how the different essential oils can play a role in your hair health, I want to share some of my favorite hair care products and what doTERRA has created and made available to us to make things super easy. I like easy!

The last product that I want to share with you is doTERRA's Lifelong Vitality Supplements. In my opinion and from my personal experience these bad boys have made ALL the difference in the world when it comes to my hair. Seriously! Now I use all of the doTERRA salon grade products, but even before I was using them I was taking the Lifelong Vitality Supplements and that's when my hair stopped falling out in clumps. When you have thin hair already, you really appreciate when there's less thinning happening up top.
The supplement trio (shown below) really helps with and was designed to assist in our overall foundational health. Our lifelong health and vitality depend on many factors including diet, physical activity, weight management, rest, stress management, exposure to toxins, and inherited genetic predisposition for disease or wellness. While some of these variables are beyond our complete control, breakthrough scientific research is revealing many ways we can influence—and even control—significant factors of aging and wellness. A long life full of vitality and healthy aging begins with providing your cells with essential nutrients and metabolic factors to help them perform optimally - and that's exactly what this trio of supplements does for our bodies.
Here are some of the primary benefits:
- Antioxidant and DNA protection
- Energy metabolism
- Bone health
- Immune function
- Stress management
- Cardiovascular health
- Healthy hair, skin, and nails
- Eye, brain, nervous system
- Liver function and digestive health
- Lung and respiratory health
The 30 day supply comes with a $79.50 price tag, but that's a fraction of what you'd pay if you compared all the groceries and stuff you'd need to buy to make up all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that these provide. Plus with a 30 day money-back guarantee you really have nothing to lose in trying them.
