This mixture will be good for you hair as it will keep your scalp and roots healthy, which will make sure that your hair grows long.
For Head Lice
• Peppermint, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Tea tree and carrier oil of your choice (Jojoba, Almond, Olive Oil) should be used as a natural cure for head lice. This mixture will save your hair from lice infestations and will keep it healthy.
• Use fresh Rosemary, Sage and Horsetail herb along with 250ml Jojoba oil, 2 glass jars, and a strainer for this composition. This is a very effective Aromatherapy for hair, and is for multipurpose use. You have to combine the fresh herbs into the first jar and then pour the Jojoba oil over them and leave them like that for 2-3 weeks. Then you should strain the mixture into a second jar and use your own infusion as a healthy hair mask.
