Notes

If you are going to be washing your hair the following day, use the oil blend.  The essential oils will blend better with oil (they really don't blend with water), but you will have a greasy scalp if you don't wash them out the next day.
Use the water blend on days when you will not be washing your hair.  I personally use this blend on a daily basis.
Oil Options: Any liquid oil can be used, but olive oil is supposed to be good for hair health. Jojoba and argan are other great choices as well. You could use a liquid coconut oils as well.
