Its healing properties will help repair any damage your hair may have sustained over the years. Plus, your hair will smell amazing all day!

In the DIY summer hair masks we will present here, Organic Aromas’ organic lavender essential oil will be mixed with a variety of ingredients that will supplement its properties. Doing so will further boost your hair and scalp’s health.
