I don’t know about you, and I cannot speak for everyone BUT my hair has been through HELL the last 16 months. I would get my usual which is called a “bleach and tone”. If you’re not familiar it’s when the hair is pretty much bleached and toned every 4-6 weeks. Well there happened to be an incident which left my hair very damaged, and unable to come back from what had happened. I politely changed salons and immediately had to cut several inches off my hair. Now I know you don’t know me (just yet), but this crushed me. I get it-it’s just hair right? “It will grow back” they say! These are all things I know, but just didn’t want to hear.
In the last 12 months I have taken extra good care of my hair. I have been getting routine trims/cuts every 3-4 months and have only applied some basic color (at the advice of my colorist) to my hair twice. I did the whole root grow out which I absolutely fell in love with, but I’m ready to be close to platinum again! So this is where Essential Oils comes into play for me, and dōterra Geranium Oil to be exact. I’ve been looking into many different dōterra oils for the effects of improving hair quality. When I stumbled upon dōterra Geranium Essential Oil I just HAD to get my hands on it. Some of the benefits of the dōterra Geranium EO are various beautifying purposes, including promoting healthy, glowing skin and hair, while providing a sweet, floral aroma. The beauty side of this EO is really what grabbed my attention.
So you’re probably wondering at this point what I’ve been doing with this oil right? Well you’re in luck! I have been taking Organic Unrefined-Unfiltered Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and mixing it with some dōterra Geranium EO
. There isn’t an actual method or calculation–for however much you are going to make, I would suggest using 1/4 parts Geranium EO
with either 1/2 or 3/4 parts Olive Oil. I haven’t made a large batch yet-I just make it as I want to use it. All I do is section my hair into three parts and start at the ends and work my way up each section. I then just top knot it and let it sit for a minimum of one hour. You could technically leave this mask on for as long as you want including overnight, but generally I do about three hours while I clean up around my house or sit and relax. My only suggestion to you is if you’re going to sleep or sit on something porous put a towel down, or a sheet you don’t mind getting some oil on temporarily. So the results! You want those right? I only have to shampoo my hair once and I put in a very small amount of conditioner but what I find when my hair dries is the smoothness and shine! Whether I apply heat to it or wear my natural curls my hair feels and looks so much healthier. Now I can be pretty forgetful so I will sometimes go weeks without doing this mask and let me tell you when I do I regret not being on a better schedule with this thing! I am no professional but I’d like to say giving my hair some extra love now and again has truly helped my hair grow and become strong again. Lastly have I mentioned how awesome my hair smells afterwards? Have a spa night, and give this a try! You owe it to yourself!
