Essential oils for fast growth?

  • 1 Post By Veecoily

I'm currently using a mix of essential oils of rosemary, lavender, peppermint, clove and clary sage mixed with carriers golden jojoba and castor oils organic cold pressed. I've been applying them for about three weeks 3x a week before I cowash but have no idea if they're working since I didn't measure my hair when I started. I think my hair has grown a bit because when I started it was to grow out the bangs that I had just gotten and looked terrible on me and they have grown. My hair has grown but it could just be natural growth because it's back where it was when I first got the cut. Has anyone used oils for hair growth and have they worked? Now I want to grow my whole head as fast as possible lol.

Hair 2b 27 in long or slightly below bsl
Henna 2 step every month and a half since Oct '12
Scalp oils mentioned above
Coconut oil pre wash
Suave coco cowash YTC rinse out
Giovanni direct leave in
Homemade oil mix of Castor, avocado, jojoba and olive oil as a sealer
LA looks polish hair gel
plopping or diffusing in med heat slow setting if I'm in a rush.
this looks like a great start! i have a massive ever growing collection of oils all tried on tested on face, body and hair. I too have a nice oil mix that i message in my scalp every night. this helps with healthy hair growth. i really think that my mix works for me: rosemary, peppermints, vit E oil and my carrier, or "base" oils are half argan and half evening primrose oil.
do you really message your scalp with it? i put it on my finger tips, rubb then together and give my self a nice message. i start at my crown, then i put more oil on my finger tips and work my way down. i add more oil to my finger tips maybe.... 5 or 6 times.

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
That sounds like a good oil blend I use all of these oils and with great results. I oil my scalp/hair daily and my hair loves it and it keeps the single strand knots away.

Loving my coily hair because it grows towards the Sun giving praise to my Lord!
I have the oil mix in an applicator bottle I got at a beauty supply store for a little bit over a dollar and apply it an hour before I go in the shower. I massage the scalp from deep within not just rub my fingers over it. I'm not sire if that is the right way to do it but I hope so. I will be measuring my hair again in mid Feb and let you guys know if the oils have made any difference in the growth. Even if it hasn't, my hair looks a thousand times healthier so I can't complain. The reason I don't do it every day is because people have complained about the smell lol. For my first oil mix I didn't have essential oils so I mixed the leaves of rosemary with some cayenne pepper, garlic and onion powder from a recipe I got on youtube for hair growth. It was horrible and made me want to throw up the two times I applied it so I threw it out. ahhh newbies...lol

i heard rosemary makes hair grow super fast. i just started using it
I used an Ayurvedic hair growth oil for a while that worked great for me -- it was Bramhi oil, made by Banyan Botanicals. It came mixed in coconut oil. I used it on my scalp every morning and night and I think it really helped my hair get past the BSL hump! (Not using it now because I'm pregnant and my doctor cautioned me to be careful about using herbal formulas of any kind. But I do think it worked great while i used it!) They also make a Bringaraj oil that's supposed to be good for hair growth -- might be worth investigating.
