Lavender Benefits For Hair & Scalp

Most people find lavender’s fragrance relaxing, but there are other ways this plant can nourish your mind and body. Lavender essential oil contains a variety of natural compounds that researchers are increasingly investigating. These compounds have a number of healing properties that may aid in dandruff management, among other personal care applications.

Specifically, a 2014 study of ingredients in a variety of essential oil samples made from Lavendula angustifolia plants identified the most commonly occurring compounds as linalool, lavandulol, linalyl acetate, lavandulyl acetate and ß-caryophyllene. These compounds and others found in lower concentrations in lavender essential oil likely play a role in lavender’s healing properties. Here are some of those benefits:

Soothing Itching and Irritation

Lavender oil has long been believed to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that can calm irritated skin, and studies are increasingly supporting this. Both linalool and linalyl acetate have been shown in clinical studies to soothe inflammation and ease pain.

Cleaning and Preventing Infection

Linalool, one of the compounds found in lavender essential oil, is an effective antiseptic used in many cosmetic products. It is also a known insecticide and is widely used in pest control products. Studies suggest it may also help prevent and treat lice infestations. Linalool is just one of several compounds found in lavender essential oil with anti-microbial properties that may help address viral, bacterial, and fungal overgrowth on the skin - a property which may help limit Malassezia overgrowth (an underlying cause of dandruff).

Stimulating Hair Growth

Lavender oil is believed to encourage hair growth. A 2016 Korean study supported the use of lavender oil for new growth of hair, hair thickening, and hair loss prevention, noting the “marked hair growth-promoting effects” of lavender oil. using our hair growth serum, which comes with Lavender oil in its 100% pure and high quality form with blend of some other essential oils to stimulate & Nourish Hair Follicles on the scalp and gives you even faster hair growth results.

Lavender essential oil can also help condition the hair, boosting shine and controlling frizz, especially in combination with other high-quality shampoo ingredients. 

Relaxing Mind & Body

It’s increasingly recognized that reducing stress can be a way to improve general health - and this includes calming dandruff symptoms. The World Health Organization, among other medical groups, recognizes the effectiveness of the lavender oil compounds linalool and linalyl acetate for relieving stress and anxiety and reducing agitation or restlessness. 

More research is needed on the exact mechanisms involved, but some studies do suggest that these compounds and perhaps others in lavender essential oil can help reduce anxiety and depression through their interaction with the central nervous system.

Replaces The “Medicated” Smell of Most Dandruff Shampoos

Lavender’s lovely fragrance contributes to its use in dandruff treatments in another way: it’s a great replacement for the unpleasant “medicated” smells of most dandruff shampoos. If you’re affected by chronic dandruff symptoms, the products you use to manage it become a part of your daily routine.
