Hi Kcurly!
I just discovered your wonderful blog today. I have been looking for something like that for a while now. I have a question I hope you will
be able to answer. I want to fix my dandruff problem using only natural products made at home. I heard that Tea Tree Oil is good, but
I don’t know what to mix it with. I also can’t find a list of essencial oils and what they’re good for when it comes to hair. I want to mix what ever oil to make a type of shampoo or something. Thanks, and your help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Jael, thanks for this email!

Here is a list of the uses of essential oils from Motown Girl that I found helpful. Usually when mixing essential oils, it’s with a carrier oil (click here to see more info about that). You may want to do mix the two and then apply to the scalp.

As for the dandruff, I am not currently suffering from it as it disappeared (for the most part) after I stopped using the relaxer. I do still get an itchy scalp which can be helped greatly by a carrier oil mixed with some lavender or peppermint oil. Maybe someone else can give you helpful suggestions and you’ll have to keep us updated on how you experiments work out for you. I’ve also read that using Apple Cider Vinegar before shampooing your hair can help with dandruff.
