Sparkleme said: Hi Brenda, I’m natural and just did my big chop in July. I want to make a homemade moisturizer using aloe Vera juice with oils. What would you recommend that I use? Would It be fine to use a carrier and an EO in the mix? I Also plan on making a flaxseed gel for my hair after using the moisturizer. And because it’s sticky I’m not sure if I can add oils in the gel and it still be beneficial to my hair? One more… Sorry =( where can I go to find these oils, I can’t find them anywhere around where I live. Thank you

Hi Simon, there are some oils like peppermint, eucalyptus, jojoba which are said to balance the pH on the scalp. I am sure there are several more but these oils when used are said to greatly enhance the condition on the scalp and thus promote hair growth.

Jojoba Oil – The debate is whether jojoba is the king of the carrier oils. Many scalp related problems are caused by a hardened build-up of sebum that clogs the hair follicles and may cause some types of scaling. If this hardened build-up is not removed, it can eventually obstruct the hair follicle’s ability to function properly, jojoba rapidly penetrates down to the scalp and hair shaft, and readily loosens and dissolves this hardened build-up. The scalp and hair follicles are left clean and free to continue their normal function. Jojoba is great for all hair types and has an ability to inhibit excess activity of the sebaceous glands making it the perfect choice for people with oily scalps that still need conditioning. Likewise it can be used for dry hair as it helps to moisturize your hair properly.
