Eucalyptus oil comes from the eucalyptus tree found mainly in the bushlands of Australia. Eucalyptus oil is used for medicinal purposes such as treating colds, sore throats and the flu. It is also used in many beauty care products, including shampoos, conditioners and products that promote hair growth.
A few drops of eucalyptus oil can be applied directly to the scalp and massaged to stimulate blood flow. It can also be mixed with shampoo or conditioner to revitalize dull and lifeless hair, which encourages hair growth.
Luster and Elasticity
As reported in 2005 by the Congress on Science and Technology of Thailand at Suranaree University of Technology, eucalyptus oil applied to the scalp increases the hair's luster and elasticity. Newly grown hair is richer, stronger and more vibrant.
Eucalyptus oil can be applied into the scalp and left in overnight for shiny and clean smelling hair while it works on new hair follicles and fosters hair growth.
Eucalyptus oil is concentrated and has rejuvenating and regenerative properties that promote and stimulate hair growth.
The benefits of eucalyptus oil are both medicinal and aromatic. It is contained in many soaps, lotions, shampoos and hair conditioners. Hair growth and improved hair texture are just one of its benefits.
