why do you have to mixed essenial oils with carrier oils before putting on your hair and scalp?

What would happen if you didn't mixed the essenial oil with a carrier oil? Is it bad for your hair?

Many essential oils are irritating to the skin if put on directly without a carrier oil. Scalp is skin too of course, but I would assume it might also irritate the hair if it irritates the skin, although probably not as much. With how expensive essential oils are, I would much prefer to put them in carrier oils anyway even if they weren't irritating by themselves :)
