Shortly after getting pregnant with our third child in 2012, something shifted in my body and all of a sudden I had oily hair. I have never dealt with oily hair in my life, if anything it was sometimes dry, but never oily. I switched shampoo at first, but that really didn’t do anything. I tried a more expensive shampoo from one of the beauty supply stores, and that helped some, but not for very long. I mean I could shower, wash my hair, blow dry it, and it would be oily all over again. I would let it dry naturally, and again…OILY!
I finally turned to Google shortly after having our son summer 2013 because I was getting really frustrated and thought I could search out a solution. After some research and lots of reading of other people’s blogs, I decided to give the baking soda and apple cider vinegar trick a try. It was interesting…some days! I would scrub my scalp with baking soda, rinse with water, soak the ends of my hair in Apple cider vinegar, then cover all my hair in apple cider vinegar and let it sit for a minute or two. (Yes this was VERY stinky) Then I would rinse it all out. Some days my results were amazing! My hair would be so soft and look so nice, clean, and shiny. But most often the baking soda would dry my hair out and leave it brittle from not getting it all rinsed out. Some days it would look oily and dirty like before. It was VERY frustrating!
I decided maybe I better give this lavender mint shampoo a try because I’ve tried everything else! I have been using the Young Living Lavender Mint Shampoo and Conditioner for 3 months, and I am VERY happy with the results. My hair is so much healthier and no more oily head! Plus I don’t have any split ends. I used to have lots and lots of split ends from all the blow drying and flat iron use, but now NONE! I can’t remember when my hair has ever been so healthy.
The shampoo and conditioner contain lavender, peppermint, and spearmint essential oils. It can be used for all hair types and helps repair damaged hair. It comfortably stimulates the scalp and is very refreshing.
