Healthy hair growth is a key concern for many people, and while genetics play a role in determining hair growth patterns, there are steps you can take to promote hair growth and improve the health of your hair. One of the most effective ways to do this is by using essential oils.
How can essential oils help to improve hair growth?
Stimulating Scalp: Essential oils such as peppermint and rosemary can help to stimulate the scalp, promoting blood flow and encouraging hair growth. They can be added to a carrier oil such as jojoba, almond or and massaged into the scalp for best results.
Strengthening hair strands: Essential oils such as lavender, cedarwood and thyme have been traditionally used to strengthen hair strands and prevent breakage. They are also known to help in preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth
Nourishing the hair: Carrier oils such as coconut, argan and jojoba oil can be used as a hair oil to nourish the hair, and keep the scalp healthy. They can be used as a pre-shampoo treatment or as a leave-in treatment. Since essential oils are a concentrated extract of a plants, they are very strong in undiluted form – so you should always dilute the essential oils with a carrier oil before applying to your skin.
Balance Scalp pH: Essential oils such as tea tree and rosemary have antimicrobial properties, which can help to balance the scalp pH and prevent scalp irritation or dandruff, a common cause of hair loss.
Customizable blends: Essential oils can be blended together to create customized hair growth treatments that are tailored to your specific needs. For example, you can create a blend of peppermint and rosemary for stimulating scalp and a blend of lavender and cedarwood for strengthening hair strands.
How to make an essential oil hair oil for hair growth:
- 2-3 drops of essential oils (Rosmary or peppermint)
- 2 table spoons of carrier oil (for example almond oil, jojobaoil or coconut oil).
- Blend together and massage into wet hair. Wrap your hair in a warm towel*. Leave in for 1 hour (or over night) and wash off with schampoo. Use the hair oil 1-2 times a week to stimulate hair growth.
*Blow dry the towel to make it warm before wrapping it around your hair for maximum results.
In conclusion, essential oils can be a valuable tool for promoting hair growth and improving the health of your hair. They can be used to stimulate the scalp, strengthen hair strands, nourish the hair, balance the scalp pH, and create customized blends.
