#AskBee: Blog Reader Question 1

hair questions

I've been keeping up with your posts and you have mentioned applying "scalp oil mix" to your scalp after washing. Please which oils make up the mix and how often do you apply it?
Thanks "

Thanks for dropping by on my little space in the "blogosphere". My scalp oil mix is made of carrier oils that I've found overtime to be most beneficial to my scalp health. See Composition in the image below.

scalp oils

Here's why I chose these oils;
Castor oil: It promotes and stimulates hair growth, makes the hair strands thicker. It has antifungal properties so it prevents dandruff and other fungal scalp issues. It contains Ricinoleic acid, which is believed to help replenish sebum (scalp's natural oil)Coconut oil: It's very penetrative and enhances blood circulation to the scalp thus stimulates hair growth. It has antibacterial properties which prevents itchy scalp, dandruff etc. It is also very rich in vitamins and minerals that are essential for hair and scalp health.

Tea tree oil : It has antimicrobial and antiseptic properties. It prevents and heals scalp issues like dryness, flakiness, Itchy scalp and also dandruff. At the beginning of my healthy hair journey, my scalp was always terribly itchy. Even just a day after washing and deep conditioning. I introduced tea tree oil to my regimen and that was it. My scalp is now super healthy. I even added it to my shampoos and deep conditioners. 

Peppermint oil: For me this essential oil is the chief hair growth stimulator. I mean you can even feel it working within seconds of application. LOL. #Justkidding. But really, the tingly, minty feel on the scalp is so refreshing and I also always notice an increase in my growth rate anytime I use it consistently. It increases blood circulation to the scalp which rejuvenates the hair follicles and thus leads to increased hair growth.

I apply the oil mix to my scalp and massage it in for about 3 -5 minutes, not just on wash days but at least twice a week

Introducing: Blog Reader Questions Series #AskBee

Blog reader questions

Hi lovelies,

Happy New Month!

I have decided to add a something new to the blog, Blog Reader Question(s). I've received mails and messages from ladies interested in healthy hair. I thought it would be a great idea to share the question(s) on the blog so others can also learn and so that I would not have to answer the same question twice. Once a question has already been answered I can easily refer to the answer on here. 
The frequency of the Blog Reader Question(s)/ #AskBee Posts will depend on how often I get mails/messages. 

So if you would love me to answer your hair-related questions send a mail to OR DM (Direct Message) @hairvolutionbybee on Instagram/HairvolutionbyB on twitter. I will reply as soon as I can and also post the question and my answer on here without disclosing your identity.   Let's get this started !!!

Disclaimer : My answers to questions are by no means a rule or law. They are simply based on my knowledge and experience.
