I do not have an oily, but for those of you who do, I would like to recommend a stellar remedy for you to combat the excess oil build-up on your scalp.

This remedy works best with natural shampoos that are oil-based or contains vegetable glycerin. Mix at least two teaspoons of the essential oil and 1 tablespoon of the carrier oil. Herbs vary according to your own discretion.

Herbs: marigold, horsetail, lemon balm, mint, lavendar, sage, stinging nettle
Essential oils: tea tree, orange, lemon, rose
Carrier oils: coconut, grapeseed
Base for mixture: aloe vera juice

GOOD LUCK ON YOUR HAIR JOURNEY!

I am so glad you asked. As a matter of fact, I do.

Here is the dry scalp remedy:

Herbs: Burdock Root, comfrey, sage, rosemary
Essential Oils: Sandalwood, chamomile, rosemary
Carrier Oils: olive, coconut, castor, almond, avocado, jojoba, grapeseed, evening primrose, hemp seed, wheat germ, macademia nut, sunflower, safflower, and neem (strong fragrance)

Base for all of the shampoos: aloe vera juice (1-2 tablespoons).

GOOD LUCK!

Very Happy

Oh thank you! Do I do the same as in bold for the oily scalp remedy?

Yes, I only say this because [from my experience], shampoos that contain sulfates are not as effective because they soak up all the natural ingredients, so your hair and scalp reaps none of the benefits of this regimen.

So, yes, try this with a shampoo with vegetable glycerin, maybe even a liquid castille soap (Dr. Bronner's).

Here is the link to Dr. Bronner's site:

Here is the direct link to the new line of organic hair conditioning products. I just scoped this out!

GOOD LUCK!

Thanks for the site. The prices look good too. I'm sorry if i keep bothering you with questions but the soap, what name or bottle should I get? And what shampoos contain vegetable glycerin?

The bottle that you should get depends upon what hair type and texture you have. Even though this is not a major concern, I believe that it is a factor. Each bottle of the classic castille soaps has its own benefits. Personally, I believe that it is best when you use them in combination with your own herbs, essential, carrier, and fragrance oils [from my experience].

Dr. Bronner's Classic Castille Soap Brands [my additions are located in brackets]

Peppermint [I currently own. Works best to combat itchy scalp and is great to use as a base for a specialty itchy scalp shampoo]
Eucalyptus [I currently own. Works best to combat lifeless hair, limp hair, and dryness]
Almond [I currently own and LOVE this one! Works best to combat dry hair, split ends, and breakage. Works really well as a braid shampoo]
Rose [Great for oily hair and scalp. Works well to moisturize your hair strands. Would be best for a moisturizing shampoo regimen]
Baby Mild [I would use this if you are adding your own ingredients that contain invigorating fragrances, because the Baby Mild is the only classic castille soap that is unscented]
Citrus [Great for oily hair and scalp. Works best as a base for a clarifying shampoo]
Lavendar [ I currently own. Works well as a specialty shampoo. Combine rosemary herb and oil, with grapeseed oil, coconut oil, castor oil, eucalyptus oil, ylang ylang, and sage for a hair growth shampoo like you never knew before]
Tea Tree [Great base for a itchy scalp shampoo. Also great for braid wearers]

GOOD LUCK!
