DIY oils for hair loss! Bay leaf and thyme have benefits to reduce hair loss and can even promote hair growth! Infused oils are easy, and you can try them with your next scalp conditioning treatment.
Just sun-steep a jar full of clean and dry leaves + your favorite hair oil (safflower oil is a great choice since it has hair benefits too!) for 1-3 weeks.
Make sure your container is clean and airtight! You can speed up the process by placing your oils in an open jar with a water bath to gently heat the oil, but don't take your water past the point where steam is rising - no bubbling.
Do this for a few hours, until the smell and taste of the herbs are concentrated in the oil. Let cool and keep in the fridge for up to one month.
To use - massage into scalp and leave on for 30 minutes - 1 hour, then shampoo and condition as normal.
You can also add this OR a few drops of essential oils to your current favorite conditioner.
