Top Three Essential Oils and Hair Growth Solutions

You have heard a lot about essential oils and hair growth. For years now, you have been trying to desperately grow your tresses, but it may already be due to your genes why your mane takes a long time to regrow. You have tried a lot of products and treatments, but the results were superficial. You want something that will last and produce a great effect, hence you are serious in finding out more about essential oils and hair growth.

First and foremost, do not confuse mineral oils and essential oils. There are a lot of hair care products that contain mineral oils, which are synthetic elements that act as preservatives. Mineral oils are derived from petroleum sources. These can clog the pores of your skin, making it hard for your skin to get rid of toxins. As a result, you will not see tremendous effects in terms of hair growth and the products may also have negative effects on your tresses and skin in the long run.
Switch to Essential Oils and Hair Growth Products

It is best that you try out the essential oils and hair growth products first before continuing with its use. This way, you can test if you are allergic to any of these natural oils and also to find out which one will work best for the type of tresses that you have.

To help you decide which essential oils and hair growth products to use, here’s a list of the top essential oils that are beneficial for your mane.

1. Lavender oil. This is typically grown in places with temperate climates. The oil was used by ancient practitioners in treating and preventing baldness, as well as in growing the tresses. This is effective because of its antibacterial elements that can help in treating scalp problems. When it reaches the hair shaft, the oil works its wonders in getting rid of dandruff and in eliminating the dryness of the skin.

You can use the infused oil in massaging your head and scalp nightly. Its scent has a calming effect, which can help you sleep soundly. When you wake up in the morning, use an organic shampoo in washing your locks. Towel dry your hair before styling and avoid using a blow dryer or any products that utilize heat such as curlers and irons. Lavender oil can add volume to your hair with continued use.

If you have time, you can also make your own lavender water and use this in rinsing your tresses every day. To do this, you need to boil some sprigs of the plant in water, simmer for around 20 minutes and cool. The combination of the oil and water will make your hair shiny, your scalp healthy and your mane smelling really good.

2. Jojoba oil. Aside from its effectiveness in supporting hair growth, the reason why this can be found in many essential oils and hair growth products, this is also known for giving moisture to the tresses. Its molecular characteristics can be likened to the oil that the glands in the scalp naturally produce. Unlike many essential oils, which need to be diluted in carrier oils before using, jojoba oil can be directly applied to the hair and scalp. Actually, this is used as a carrier oil for many essential oils and hair growth products. This kind of oil is hypoallergenic, so it won’t harm your scalp, skin and mane.

3. Rosemary. This can be used to grow your tresses and to delay the process of developing gray hair. This helps the scalp by improving its blood circulation. You can mix a few drops of this oil with olive oil and use the result in massaging the scalp. The leaves of rosemary can be boiled, simmered and cooled to produce water that you can use in rinsing your locks. The practice can help in retaining the natural color of your tresses. This is popularly practiced by people with black hair.
 

Prioritizing in Preparing For Survival

There’s a lot of information around for those folks that some are now calling “prep-ers” or those who are preparing for dire future scenarios. One way of trying to make sense of the pages and pages of seemingly endless information and long lists of items that may be needed is to step back and take a look at that vessel we all contend with on this plane, the human body.

The one thing that could do a person in very fast is not having breathable air. For those that can’t afford expensive, full face masks, lets hope this one doesn’t come to pass. (The eye’s could need protection in some situations, which a breathing apparatus that covers only the mouth and nose would not provide.)

If our bodies were suddenly thrust too far out of our narrow range of necessary temperatures, it could also pretty much mean instant death. So, in order to prepare for this, we would need to somehow control our environment ensuring that we not to get too hot or too cold. A wood stove with a good supply of wood could be one possible tool to counter the cold. Hint: large chunks of wood are harder to steal than smaller ones. And what about a solar powered air conditioner? You get the picture. But don’t worry if you, like most people, can not afford those expensive panels. A quick heating up of things as drastically as that has a lower probability of occurrence than do other scenarios.

Fresh water would be our next concern. Stocking this and keeping it drinkable is the subject of many sources that can easily be looked up. And lets not forget the supply in the hot water tank, toilet tank and filling the tub if time allows.

As for food supplies, this is also covered in many easy to find places. And don’t forget the rice and noodles. I have many recipes soon to be posted that will utilize these affordable and storable, nourishing staples. If you have the wood stove and fuel, this can double as a cooking stove. And remember, you’ll be needing dry matches, pot, etc.

This is by no means an exhaustive coverage of the topic for prepers but just some guidelines that might prove helpful. Not to be too paranoid but it’s always better to be prepared than not to be prepared. You might want to check some of the numerous sites that go into much more depth including escape plans if needed. And remember not to keep your lights on if you are the only one around that has lights. If someone thinks you have something they need, they may try to do whatever necessary to secure those things for themselves.
