For persons who are prematurely gray there are some things that you can do before you shampoo to put a stop to those premature gray hairs. This recipe is adapted from Valerie Worwoods book, The Complete Book Of Essential Oils And Aromatherapy.
It is a recommended read for those persons who are interested in oils and how they work, especially those oils that can be of help to your premature graying tresses.
1 tsp alfalfa essential oil
1 tsp. carrot essential oil
8 tsp. avocado oil
Combine the three oils together in a container preferably glass. Shake together until they are combined and gently massage in the hair scalp and pay special attention to the roots of the hair. Massage hair with the pad of your fingers, not your nails. Leave this mixture on for up to an hour before you shampoo your hair or overnight in lieu of your hot oil treatment. The mixture can be stored for up to 60 days.
- Do not store your mixtures in the bathroom.
- Use the treatment as long as needed.
- If you experience any skin irritations stop using the mixture immediately.
