DIY Hair Care Recipes with Essential Oils

Keep your locks as beautiful as ever with these DIY hair recipes!

DIY Dry Hair Spritz

If your hair is dull or naturally dry, spritz this recipe over your hair throughout the day to keep it from looking dry, particularly if you are planning a day in the sun. I only use and recommend Young Living essential oils.

Add all ingredients in a 12-oz. spray bottle. Shake well before spritzing over hair, avoiding the roots.

DIY Detangler

Smooth out knots with this hair detangler!

  • 1/2 cup Lavender Volume Conditioner (or other Young Living conditioner)
  • 1 1/8 cup hot (not boiling) distilled water
  • 3 drops Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood*
  • 3 drops Cedarwood
  • 3 drops Frankincense

Put conditioner into a 12-oz. spray bottle. Add distilled water and shake. Add essential oils and shake again. To use, spray on dry or damp hair, focusing on the ends.

DIY Highlights

Lighten any hair color with this recipe for sun-kissed highlights.

Be conservative with darker hair to avoid brassy hues.

  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 15 drops Citrus Fresh™
  • 3 drops Frankincense
  • 3 drops Ylang Ylang
  • 3 drops Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood*

Add all ingredients into a 12-oz. spray bottle and shake to combine.

To use, shake well and spritz throughout hair when spending time in the sun.

Start with a small amount to avoid over-drying hair.

These essential oil DIYs will have your hair feelings soft and looking fabulous after any activity!

*Hong Kuai or Hinoki may be good alternatives to try if you do not have Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood. However, we cannot guarantee similar results because the therapeutic compounds would not be the same as Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood.
