Essential oils are beneficial for hair, especially dry hair. Some of the most popular essential oils for dry hair are lavender essential oil and rose essential oil. Lavender essential oil balances the natural oils of the scalp and treats flaky and dried scalps. Massaging regularly with lavender essential oil can decrease hair loss and have it shiny and soft. Rose essential oil is especially helpful because it is completely natural. Using rose essential oil as even a hot oil treatment provides the ability to easily absorb the ingredients and treat the hair.
