Side Effects Of Essential Oils On Hair

Using essential oils in your hair and scalp is usually safe for most people. That said, essential oils should always be mixed with other carrier oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, or jojoba oil before applying to your scalp and hair to prevent side effects.

When applied directly to the scalp without mixing, essential oils can cause allergic reactions such as itching, redness, scalp irritation, and swelling. If you experience any of the side effects, wash the oils out of your hair immediately with soap or shampoo.

Essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream once applied and massaged into the scalp. Once they get into the bloodstream, they can cause side effects such as coughing, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, or eye allergies. This is why a skin patch test is recommended before using essential oils.
