I believe that everybody needs to moisturize their hair at least three times per week, regardless of their hair type.
This is because your hair will look and feel at its best if you regularly give is an oil therapy treatment it in order to replace lost moisture and also to regulate scalp. In fact, if your hair could speak it would tell you that it loves to be massaged and cleaned with the lovely Rosemary Herbal extract included in our hair serum.
This applies to all hair types, not just thinning hair. I know from past experience that people with hair that is very thin or has been subjected to chemicals either through medical treatments or through dyes and coloring have scalps which need cleansing, massaging and hydrating. The Rose Hip Seed oil included in our hair serum is brilliant for correcting those imperfections. People think that their scalps will automatically correct for these damages and although the scalp does, it often needs help when nature or chemicals have taken their toll.
And, people with dry hair to go to the other extreme by insisting on using hair serums that are very thick and heavy. Weighty oils and treatments, weigh down the hair causing it to lose its bounce. People with dry hair tell me they need something heavy, but a light moisturizing applied to the ends and any areas that are feeling straw-like will benefit tremendously from a daily light spritz to these troubled areas.
In the pyramids of Egypt, the grave of Tutankhamun had nestled within it urns which still carried the scent of lavender. He lived around 1341 B.C.E. and the Egyptians were known to have made perfumes of lavender and some believe that they distilled even back then. Perhaps this was the inception of the idea that the vibration of lavender led one to the stars as the Egyptians believed. This makes the use of lavender over 3300 years old!
The last great active pharaoh of Egypt, Cleopatra, a member of the Ptolemaic Dynasty, had as her secret weapon in the attraction and seduction of both Mark Anthony and Julius Caesar, the lovely scent of lavender. The Romans then adopted the use of lavender after their conquest of Egypt and they scented baths, pillows, and were known to carry lavender into battle.
Mary, the mother of Jesus, was the first Mother known to use lavender. She was said to have hung His baby clothes over a lavender bush thereby scenting His clothes. Lavender was ever after known to protect people from evil. In the Middle Ages, crosses of lavender were hung over the doors of homes to ward off evil. And, those in India believe that bad smells promote and bring evil entities to one. They use many essential oils and flowers for many different applications. Lavender also wards of insects protecting the wearer from bites.
Later in Christ’s life, Mary Magdalene anointed His feet with Lavender Spikenard by rubbing the oil into His feet with her hair. The scent was said to fill the house with the beauty of lavender.
As lavender made its way north into Europe it found its way into usage by the German Saint and nun Hildegard von Bingen. She lived from 1098 to 1179, and used lavender waters, which are a blend of alcohol – gin, brandy or vodka and she probably used a macerated lavender oil concoction. Today these are often blended with either lavender essential oil or absolute, which according to her soothed migraine headaches.
