I'd really like to know how best to use EOs and Ayurvedic in my regime.

I currently use the following oils for prepoos, in my conditioner (Aussie Moist) and in my daily moisturiser: EVOO;  Jojoba;  Grapeseed;  Sweet Almond; Crude Avocado.

I also want to add the following Essential Oils for growth and to decrease shedding: Peppermint;  Eucalyptus; Rosemary.

I also use Jamaican Organic Pimento & Castor Oil, which contains Grapeseed, Peppermint & Eucalyptus Oil. But I use it much less often and concentrate it on my scalp & temples, as it resulted in dry, hard, crispy hair.

I recently got some Shikakai powder, plus some Vatika Natural Coconut Oil with Amla (w/o mineral oil). However, I'm a little worried about the Amla, as it says it contains lemon to control sebum - but I don't produce enough to begin with! Anyway, I'm doing a patch test with the Amla (no irritation since I applied it just after midday) and I'm aiming to do one with the Shikakai tomorrow.

Anyway, my questions are:
- How do I incorporate
EOs and Ayurvedic products into my reggie?
- What amounts should I use and how often?
- What other EOs and Ayurvedic products can I use to stimulate growth, decrease shedding hair, reduce breakage and improve the condition of tightly coily, dry, protein sensitive hair, that won't cause irritation to my scalp?

- Is the Amla that I have sufficient for my needs? Meaning do I actually need any more EO or Ayurvedic?
- Can the Shikakai be used in a DC/prepoo/ daily moisturiser?


As you can see, i have a million and one questions! If anyone can help me out with any of them, I'd really appreciate it. Or, if there's a thread that deals with all this it would be great if you could point me in the right direction.

TIA Smile

UPDATE:
Still no irritation with with the Amla (Yay!) so I think I'm in the safe zone with that. Plus, I tried the Shikakai at around 9am this morning and there was no irritation with that either. I know it hasn't been 24 hours for the Shikakai yet (it's only 2.45pm now) but I think that'll be OK too.

I've been trying out this MHMETHOD and one of the steps calls for a bentonite mask treatment . I'm nervous that it's making my scalp itchy although I love the results.Would you have any advice as to how often I should use it? Or is it okay to use it more than once or twice a week?
