Fortune Scalp Oil Treatment - FAQ

What essential oil is best for dry scalp?
Certain essential oils, such as tea tree, sage and ylang-ylang, can be effective as a dry scalp treatment. Often dry scalp can be caused by dandruff, fungus, poor hygiene or possible sensitivity to hair care products. Our Fortune Scalp Oil Treatment is high in all these actives. A primary constituent of tea tree essential oil is terpinen-4-ol, which gives it great antibacterial and antifungal properties making it a great dandruff treatment. Sage essential oil also functions as an effective antibacterial agent, helping inhibit the growth of bacterial infections. If you maintain a healthy scalp the moisture level is also healthier. The best of all, Ylang-ylang essential oil is ideal for those with dry scalps. It can control sebum secretion in your scalp, keeping an ideal balance of natural oils in your scalp. Never too dry or never too oily!

Is hot oil treatement good for dry scalp?
A dry scalp that does not produce enough natural oil (sebum) can make your hair dull and your scalp itchy and flaky. One of the most effective ways to fix this is a hot oil treatment. When heating the oil before application, it not only feels great while you’re massaging it to your scalp but it also helps the oils to penetrate better your scalp and moisturize it inside out. Hot oil treatment applied to the scalp twice a week can help moisturize and soothe an itchy, dry scalp. Our Fortune Oil is an intensive scalp treatment that you can use as such or heat it. Let it sit for 30 min or overnight before washing it off.
