How To Achieve Volume & Shine For Your Hair With Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil

For me, hair is an accoutrement. Hair is jewelry. It’s an accessory.

Let’s face it, girls! We all get that “hair envy” when we see those shiny, bouncing locks on the shampoo commercials, right? Well, at least I shamelessly do! The commercials want us to believe that we can achieve such a volume only by washing our hair with their magical shampoo. We all know that stuff ain’t real and this hairdo will cost us at least an hour to our hairdresser or even more if we blow dry ourselves. 

Fortunately, I have a tiny little secret for you. I am about to tell you how to achieve bouncing, voluminous hair as effortlessly as a shampoo commercial make it looks. You don't believe me? You better try it for yourself then. All you need is ylang-ylang essential oil. This magical oil will instantly transform your hair. You will notice after the first use, that your hair is shinier, it feels thicker, more alive and is definitely fuller.  It can’t get any better, right? Actually it can.
