With all the serums out there today it’s difficult to know which hair oils work best for growing and strengthening your hair. But I firmly believe that natural hair oils work better than any serum out there when it comes to hair growth. Here are some of the best hair oils for hair growth out there that are all natural and relatively easy to find.
Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant. It is a thick all natural moisturizer that has been used for decades; and I can say decades I’ve using castor oil since I was a little girl, it is my mom’s favorite oil.
Dry or damaged hair can especially benefit from an intense moisturizer like castor oil. Adding the oil on the hair shaft on a regular basis helps to increase hair flexibility and decreases the chance of hair breakage. It is also good for people prone to dandruff, because of castor oil’s anti-flammatory properties this makes it beneficial in treating dandruff.
Peppermint Oil is one of the world’s oldest oil and is native to Europe. The oil is derived from a peppermint plant which is a mix between the watermint and the spearmint. It is used to treat a number of ailments including acne and is especially good for hair growth.
The oil has regenerative, antiseptic and stimulating effects which helps to relieve dry scalp and irritation, stimulates hair growth and gives your hair a shiny look and leaves your hair smelling minty fresh. Not: PURE Peppermint Oil cannot be used by itself, it would need to be diluted by adding a carrier oil to it. (This my favorite oil, can’t get enough of it.)
Rosemary Oil is best known as an aromatic herb used in cooking but it has many other benefits. Rosemary is a small evergreen plant belonging to the mint family. The oil is extracted from the leaves and flowering tops of the plant.
The oil is best for reducing hair loss and also promotes thicker hair. Rosemary Oil also needs a carrier oil to dilute it to avoid skin sensitivity.
Honestly I’ve never been a big fan of coconut oil but that is because of where I was getting it from. Unlike most of my audience out there, I was afforded the luxury of not having to buy this wonderful oil but it came with a consequence.
I got my coconut oil from my dad (my dad is a countryman meaning he was taught how to make his own coconut oil) and his coconut oil was all natural straight out of the pot, I use to watch him boil it until he could strain enough for a bottle; it was smelly though, had a really strong scent and flavor that would overpower everything whether you used it for cooking or in your hair, I couldn’t stand it.
Eventually I went to store bought coconut oil, the scent isn’t as strong and it had the same positive effects to my hair as the smelly one.
Coconut Oil is good for hydrating the hair and promotes hair growth. It also strengthens the hair follicles leading to a decrease in hair breakage and hair loss.
Wild Growth Oil
Now let me tell ya’ll about Wild Growth Oil. I found wild growth oil April of this year when importing my hair products (and yes some of my hair products I have to import to my beautiful island) and I’ve been using it ever since, I still have my other oils but now I just add a little of them to the Wild Growth oil. This oil id great; made with all natural ingredients like pumpkin seeds, peppermint oil, rosemary oil, coconut oil and castor oil (told you it had all the good stuff) which is just some of the oils.
It comes in an applicator bottle which makes it easy to apply to your hair and you don’t need to get your hands dirty. The only thing I don’t like is the smell, I usually add a couple extra drops of peppermint to mine to giving a better smell.
Wild Growth Hair Oil is all the benefits of the oils I mentioned above in one bottle, I personally think that why it works so well and people love it so much cause now they only need to buy one oil.
Now honestly while I did like the fact that I no longer needed to buy several oils, I personally didn’t see many results as to what most of those persons writing reviews out there say they did. No hate or nothing, maybe my hair just don’t like it that much (only grew about 1/2 inch, but there are others out there that experienced maximum growth results from this oil.
I’ll try again after I take out my protecting style which is my twist braids and write a FULL review on the oil, so look out for the in a couple weeks.
These oils are what I used to grow out my hair and while some of them have their con’s (wild growth oil) I fully believe that if you’re looking for all natural oils to stimulate hair growth, strengthen and promote less hair breakage, then these are the oils for you. Just remember that there are different brands for all these oils so be careful of what brand you buy because while the oils themselves are all natural, the way the brand processes the oil may disrupt that claim or some brands made add perfumes.
If you’ve tried any, or think that there is an oil I should add to the list, let me in know in the comments section below.
