I have decided that instead of the usual list of the Different benefits of lavender, I would answer the 12 most commonly asked questions. So here goes.

Oh but first let me tell you what inspired me to write this article. I visited a lavender farm which was an amazing experience. I will leave links at the end of this article.

Is Lavender Good for Your Hair?

I will start by saying that I use lavender in my hair treatments all the time and have been doing this for years now. I will soon be writing articles on my best and favorite hair treatments.

Lavender Essential Oil is mild and soothing and can be used for any hair type. When you massage it into your scalp it improves blood circulation and prevents hair loss and promotes hair growth.

I would say this. I have never added the pure essential oil on my scalp. I will add it to something. Here is an example.

To do scalp massage Is will use a 100ml bottle and fill it two-thirds full with any oil of your choice and then add 20 to 30 drops of the lavender essential oil to it. Then I would use it to do a scalp massage.

Can Lavender oil Help with hair Regrowth?

Right this is a question that is not a simple one to answer. Lavender oil alone will not make your hair grow back. If you are looking for an instant fix, then I am sorry this is not it. Lavender oil will help to promote hair growth but with a lot of patience from you and care and attention to the area that you want to re-grow. Lavender will increase the circulation to your hair follicles but you will only achieve success by regularly giving yourself scalp massages with lavender oil.

Can You Leave Lavender Oil in Your Hair?

Before I answer this question I will tell you what I do, because I have been doing this for years. Firstly I have an oil mix that contains lavender essential oil. I will be doing an article on my oil mixes soon.

Then only time I will wash the oil treatment out of my hair is when I am doing a hot oil treatment or an oil rinse. As I mentioned earlier I will be doing articles on all of this so you will know everything that I do. Which is tried and tested not only on me but friends and family over at least five years or more.

You can leave the oil on your scalp after doing an oil massage. The amount you use will depend on your hair type. A little goes a long way.

You want to let the oil do its work on your scalp. You may experience a calming effect whilst it starts to do its magic in healing your scalp.

Lavender is known to repel moths, fleas, flies and mosquitoes. Lavender has been used for years to keep clothes and homes smelling fresh but mosquitoes, moths and flies and other unwanted insects dislike it. I have proven this to myself time and time again.
