For the past week or so i have been massaging my scalp using oils. I used to do this in previous months but i was not consistent. Now i do it one to two times daily for as long as i want because it really feels good, its relaxing.
My initial plan was to only use castor oil. I did this but then i decided to mix it up with coconut oil. I saw no harm in doing so because both have great properties that my scalp and new growth will benefit from.
I really wish i had peppermint oil but it is too pricy for me at the moment. This oil is amazing and the only reason i want it is because when used on the scalp along with other oils, one can feel the scalp tingle. This is a great thing because the scalp is being stimulated thus increasing blood flow to that area. This results in more nutrients being transported to the hair follicles and this leads to faster hair growth or basically healthier hair. You see now why i really want that oil?
Because i did not have peppermint oil, i decided to look for another essential oil that would work just the same. I went out and bought pure eucalyptus oil, not that i was looking for that particular oil but its the only one i could find.
I added my eucalyptus oil to my deep conditioner but it did not give me that tingly feeling. I know its not because i used a little amount but i figure with it being an essential oil i shouldn’t have to use a lot! That oil is pretty pricy too. I also added some to my coconut-castor mix and still no results:( I have just made a fresh batch and used it on my scalp and i can only hope i feel something soon:/ I do however like that strong tonic-like smell it has. I smell…interesting.
Aside from the eucalyptus oil, i have some other oil that i bought a while back, maybe a month ago, now this is not a pure oil bit it has a mixture of some good oils. It is by Tony Airo called ‘siri’ like all his other products. It says that it is a roots stimulating oil. Again, this product did not give me the desired results (tingly scalp). Maybe i am supposed to put t straight on my scalp…i don’t know. What i do know is that if that ‘s how i am expected to use it…i can’t afford it! Its pricy too! I had used it in my deep conditioner and also together with castor oil for my scalp.
I will not buy the ‘siri’ oil again, am not even using the one i have. I will probably mix it into my coconut-castor-eucalyptus oil mix and try to use it up like that. I will however buy the eucalyptus oil again but i will probably use it in my deep conditioner only. When i am finally able to buy the peppermint oil, i will stop using the eucalyptus oil.
For now, i will keep massaging…OH IT FEELS SO DAMN GOOD!
