Essential Oils and Hair Growth

Essential oils have various benefits, one being they can improve your hair health. There are many different essential oils, each with their own benefits for hair including helping hair grow, adding strength, or adding shine. 

Lavender

Lavender oil is known for speeding up hair growth. It also has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that can improve your scalp health. Mix a few drops of lavender into a few tablespoons of carrier oil and apply it directly to your scalp. Leave it for 10 minutes, and then wash the mixture out and shampoo as you normally would. You can use lavender oil several times a week. 

Rosemary

Rosemary oil is known for improving hair thickness and hair growth due to its ability to improve cellular generation. One study found that rosemary performed similarly compared to minoxidil, with less itching as a side effect. You can use rosemary for your hair the same way as lavender but only do so twice a week for best results. 

Cedarwood

This oil does not only improves hair growth but could reduce hair loss by balancing the oil-producing glands in your scalp. Cedarwood also contains antifungal and antibacterial properties, which can help with conditions that might be causing dandruff or hair loss. 

Lemongrass

If you struggle with dandruff, lemongrass is the oil you need to be using. Lemongrass oil can reduce the production of dandruff in one week. It’s best used daily. Mix a few drops into your shampoo and conditioner and massage it well into your scalp when you wash your hair.
