Customized hair care is a booming business on the internet. Just how is it done? Basically, an online quiz—about hair type and health, desired care outcomes, and perhaps lifestyle and environment—determines each individual’s formulas. Naturally, these personalized products are much more expensive than drugstore or even salon brands. But you can drastically cut hair care costs and still customize your own safe, natural products with organic carrier oils and pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.
Use “Essentially You” shampoo and conditioner for daily or routine care. (The shampoo also doubles as a body wash!) For intensive moisturizing, do an occasional hair mask with our hair conditioning serum. All of these recipes take no more than 5 minutes to make! For more information on essential oils for hair care and hair conditions, see the 10th editions of Modern Essentials and the Modern Essentials Handbook under “My Usage Guide: Hair.”
The castile soap in the shampoo acts as a mild cleanser, while the vegetable glycerin is a non-greasy moisturizer and humectant (meaning it helps your hair retain moisture).
