I don't expect a newbie mixtress to start off with a huge collection of essential oils from day 1; I certainly didn't.
In my opinion these are the six most important essential oils for a kinky haired girl:
Except for bergamot I have used all the other 6 essential oils for a very long time. I started using lavender, rosemary & ylang ylang in 2006 for massage. I added peppermint a little later on and when I went natural in 2011 I immediately added cedarwood and thyme because I knew they were reputed to be great for hair growth.
In 2013, I added bergamot - I love the smell and it's also great for weak, dull or thin hair.
I now blog about wealth creation - so if you have any money questions meet me there, you can do all sorts of cool things like leave me a voicemail.
