Geranium is a beneficial ingredient for many skin and hair types and, due to its balancing effect on sebum (our skin’s natural oil which keeps skin healthy), it is especially good for keeping the scalp healthy. Geranium is very cleansing to the skin, and is helpful in clearing a sluggish and congested complexion.
Ylang-ylang has been used in hair preparations for centuries, the haircare properties of ylang-ylang are well-known. Ylang-ylang has a balancing effect on sebum – your skin’s natural oil – so can be helpful in cases of oily or dry skin. It also has a tonic and stimulating effect on the scalp and helps to promote healthy hair growth.
Lemon balm, often called “The Elixir of Life”, is famed for its rejuvenating properties. This herb has a generally calming effect, and so can be helpful with skin problems such as eczema. It is very soothing for the scalp, reducing itchiness and irritation. It is also helpful for greasy hair, and is said to counteract baldness.
Ensuring your hair is wet and warm, pour some shampoo into your palm and gently massage the shampoo into your scalp. When you've covered all of your scalp, gently "squeeze" the shampoo down the lengths of your hair. Avoid applying shampoo directly to the ends of your hair as this can cause dryness. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Slow Beauty tip… give your hair a final rinse with cool water for extra shine.
