Chamomile Essential Oil
There are different types of Chamomile from which essential oils are extracted, but it is the yellow-colored Roman Chamomile oil obtained from Anthemis nobilis that is commonly used for hair care. This soothing oil has excellent anti-inflammatory properties. It can be rubbed into the scalp to relieve itchy and scaly scalp, be it from dermatitis, psoriasis or dandruff.
Chamomile oil conditions the hair and protects it from the damage inflicted by environmental pollutants. When used as a conditioning rinse, it lightens the hair color and renders a golden sheen to it.
How to use:
Add a few drops of chamomile oil to 2 Tbsp of Jojoba oil and massage into the scalp. It provides a non-greasy protective coating that does not have to be washed away unless you’d prefer to do that.
To make a hair rinse, add 10 drops of chamomile oil to a quart of water. You can use an infusion of chamomile flowers in water instead. Use it as a final rinse after washing your hair. It will leave your hair smelling mildly of apple.
