Natural Hair: The Best Oils to Stimulate Hair Growth

It is common knowledge that healthy hair growth begins at the scalp. Over the last few decades, thousands of women have discovered the rejuvenating power that all natural essential oils can have on their scalps. The good news is, because of their recent rise in popularity, they are more readily available and don’t require an arm and a leg to purchase.

You can find the majority of these oils at your local health food stores. We also have our own recommendations below.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is the stuff of legends when it comes to healthy natural hair. It can be found at any grocery store and will run you about three dollars on the low end. You can even find odorless coconut oil which is what I prefer. A small bottle of coconut oil can last ages and promote a healthy shine and luster in your hair. Since I tend to use this “miracle” oil for everything from cooking to moisturizing my hair and body, “ages” is not in the cards for me!

Almond Oil

Almond oil is particularly beneficial when it comes to treating an unhealthy scalp. It is stated that this oil will change the health of your scalp drastically, and set up a nice foundation to a fast growing, strong head of hair.

Cedarwood Oil

Cedarwood oil is a new one for me and is supposed to be ideal for stimulating the scalp to promote overall hair growth. Because it is not recommended for nourishing the scalp or hair itself, it is advised not to use this oil as the first step in your hair growth regimen. Utilize products to create moisture first, then follow up with the products to stimulate hair growth.

Clary Sage Oil

Clary sage oil is another great oil to encourage hair growth. Though unlike cedarwood oil, this oil poses wonderful hair softening traits that are beneficial to creating a strong foundation for healthy hair. Try this oil for a one-step beauty regime.

While each of these oils is natural and ultimately good for your hair, they should be used with caution. Essential oils in particular, that have not been diluted, can be damaging to the scalp and hair, and create affects opposite to what you desire. Make sure to read labels and do some research before purchasing or putting anything on your body. It is also a smart practice to first test the oil on a small patch of your skin to be certain that you don’t have a negative reaction to it.

    Love this post. Definitely going to try out Cedarwood oil.
    Can also try Jamaican Black Castor oil, as it’s a great thickening and growing agent, and a few others as well. It’s all about finding an oil that works best with your curl type. http://tinyurl.com/hzzdln7
