5 Oils That Promote Faster Hair Growth

June 09, 2015

Hi guys! With the polluting environment it seems really difficult to take care of hair problems like hair fall, dull hair, thin hair, dry hair and many more. From childhood we are told to apply hair oil one night before shampooing because hair oils have a tendency to stimulate our hair for good. Oiling hair at least once in a week is a key to healthy and long hair. 


Hair oils boost hair growth however, there are some hair oils which work for a particular problem and regular usage of them leads to a faster hair growth. Who doesn't want a long, beautiful and lustrous hair? In this article, you'll find some great natural oils which give competition to costly hair serums and oils and are much more effective than them:

1. Castor oil

Castor oil is known for being beneficial for skin, hair and also for consumption. It is a vegetable oil. It has a very thick consistency and it moisturizes the hair from deep within and makes it thick. Castor oil helps in hair growth, prevents hair damage and split ends. Warming it up with coconut oil for few minutes will thin up its consistency to apply easily and double up the benefits. Leave it on hair overnight and wash off next morning. Avoid applying too much of this oil or it will be hard to rinse it off.

2. Almond oil

It is one of the multipurpose oils which is used for skin and hair care. It instantly adds shine to the dull hair. Moisturizing scalp with almond oil reduces hair fall and helps in hair growth. It enhances hair growth rapidly. Apply it at least 2 times in a week and your hair will get all the nourishment it needs. It also treats dandruff which is a common hair problem. It is also used as a leave-in conditioner for a rich hair treatment. Use almond oil for many weeks and you'll notice the difference.

3. Olive oil

We must be aware that olive oil is used for cooking and skin care but do we know also for hair? Yes, it is. It is known to increase strength of hair, reduce hair fall, get rid of head lice and dandruff, tame frizzy hair and maintains a healthy scalp. Massage your scalp in circular motions and leave it overnight to let it work. Wash next morning with a mild shampoo. Do this 2-3 times a week. Regular oiling with olive oil promotes hair growth.

4. Coconut oil

 Coconut oil has been used for hair and skin since ages. It is my holy grail hair oil. I'm using it since a year and I can say it has definitely did better for my hair. I apply it before washing my hair and after shampooing as a leave in conditioner and massage my scalp and tresses with it. Best thing is that it feels light on hair. Applying it on the ends of hair prevents split ends. Coconut oil prevents hair loss by mixing gooseberry (amla) or lime water with it and applying on the affected areas. Adding curry leaves to coconut oil and heating it a bit and then applying to hair growth.

5. Jojoba oil

Pronounced as ha-ho-ba oil, it is an expensive oil that has availability issues. It has the same molecular structure as of a sebum (natural oil found in scalp). It blends into the scalp easily moisturizing it. It is used mostly to treat dandruff and dry and rough hair. It is used to add volume and shine to hair. Mixing it with essential oils like lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus, etc enhances faster hair growth. Mix jojoba oil with your shampoo and conditioner to hydrate dry hair. It keeps the hair tangle and frizz free. Rub jojoba oil to your scalp and gently massage. This will improve blood circulation of hair follicles and activate hair growth.

These were the five effective oils that promote hair growth. Why need to spend thousands of bucks in a hair product which contains loads of chemicals when you can spend a dime for natural hair oils that works more effectively than them?
