8 Herbs & Oils that Promote Hair Growth

Avatar • Nov 28, 2011

By Cipriana of Urbanbushbabes.com

For years I used products containing mineral oil to coat my strands. Many manufacturers use mineral oil in a majority of products that contain synthetic ingredients because of its behavior as a preservative. Mineral oil is the result of the distillation of petroleum which acts as a saran wrap against your scalp, slowing down one of the skin’s main job which is to eliminate toxins. On the other hand natural oils are easily absorbed by the skin.

When I used products that consisted mostly of synthetic materials such as Blue Magic I’m not going to lie my hair did grow, but it was not until I switched to all natural products that I began to see the true potential of my growth capability. Before the change in my regimen I experienced a GREAT deal of shedding and dandruff. Now those days are far behind. I’m still fascinated by how are body responds to topical products. Not only is it important to watch what we put into our bodies but what we put on it as well.

My boyfriend’s grandfather is full Cherokee Indian and when we met three years ago he always talked about the importance of what you put on your body, coming from a background of ancestors rich in a holistic lifestyle. But I could not and would not give up my trusty Coconut Blue Magic until just about a year ago. When I finally gave in to the natural “stuff” I was determined that this was just a trial period and I would be back on my good old Blue Magic in no time. Well it’s been a year later and I am still using the natural “stuff”. For years I had been so accustomed to my hair feeling greasy from the mineral oil based products that it took me a while to really understand what my hair felt like with natural oils.

Again I am not here to force you into switching into an all-natural regimen, do what works best for you, but I did come across two interesting articles from ehow.com about the usage of certain natural oils by Native Americans and the distinct benefits the hair reaps from each of these natural oils.

1. Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is an extract of the Jojoba plant found in California, Arizona and parts of Mexico. Jojoba oil has been used for hundreds of years by American Indians to moisturize and grow hair. The molecular makeup of jojoba has similar characteristics to the natural oil the glands of the scalp produce. Jojoba oil can be purchased at herb shops and can be applied directly to your hair or you can add a few drops to your favorite conditioner to promote hair growth. Jojoba is hypoallergenic and will not harm your hair or scalp. Aloe vera is another product used by Native American Indians to promote hair growth and is also an excellent moisturizer for your hair.

2. Wheat Germ/Aloe Vera/Coconut Milk

Mix 1/4 cup of wheat germ, 1/4 cup of aloe vera and 1/4 cup of coconut milk and use this product as a natural shampoo. Aloe vera can be purchased at drugstores and herb shops and can also be applied directly to the scalp as it will open pores on the scalp that may have previously been blocked and will allow the hair follicles to grow. The American Indians also used and continue to use several kinds of oils to promote hair growth such as emu oil, rosemary oil, and mustard oil.

3. Peppermint Oil

A few drops of any of these products can be massaged directly into the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles and promote hair growth. Peppermint oil is also a good scalp stimulator but must be diluted before application. Mix 3 drops of peppermint oil with 3 teaspoons of water and massage into the scalp. These oils can be purchased at herb shops and all are hypoallergenic and not harmful to the hair or scalp.

4. Lavender Oil/Lavender Water

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia or Lavandula officinalis), native to the Mediterranean, is now grown in temperate climates worldwide. For centuries, lavender has been used by herbal practitioners to prevent baldness and to encourage new hair growth. Lavender contains potent anti-bacterial agents that soothe and heal scalp infections. It is useful in treating dandruff and adds volume to the hair shaft. Place a few sprigs of lavender in a glass container and cover with extra-virgin olive oil and cover tightly. Place in a cool, dark spot and allow to age for 3 to 4 weeks. Use the lavender infused oil as a daily scalp massage. Apply and leave on overnight. In the morning, wash hair with a gentle organic shampoo and style as usual.

A daily rinse of lavender water (bring water to a boil, add a few sprigs of lavender, reduce to simmer for 20 minutes, then cool) will impart a delightful fragrance and shine to hair. Apply lavender as a daily rinse after shampooing.

5. Burdock Root Oil

Burdock (Arctium Lappa) root oil, also known as Bur oil is one of the most important herbs used to restore hair. Burdock promotes healthy hair by relieving scalp irritations and improving blood circulation to the hair follicle. Burdock root oil supplies natural phytosterols and important essential fatty acids to hair roots, and has been traditionally used to reduce and reverse hair thinning. It is a key ingredient in many hair restoration treatments.

6. Saw Palmetto

Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) has been used for centuries as both a food staple and as a healing medicinal herb. The herb produces a dark red berry which is dried and then pulverized into a fine powder. Saw palmetto is available in several forms including ointments, capsules, tinctures and teas. Recent scientific studies have shown that Saw Palmetto may have beneficial effects for those suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH); male pattern baldness and other conditions associated with excess DHT (male hormone) production.

7. Stinging Nettle

Stinging Nettle (Urtica Diocia), found growing naturalized across America, blocks the conversion of testosterone into DHT. Excessive DHT contributes to hair loss in both men and women. Stinging nettle can be purchased in either pill or capsule form and is said to be more effective when used in combination with saw palmetto. Nettle can be harvested in the wild (use gloves as the leaves are covered with tiny hairs that cause a stinging sensation upon contact with human skin). The fresh leaves can be submersed in olive oil in a glass jar. Seal and place in a cool, dark spot for 2 to 3 weeks. Apply the oil in an invigorating scalp massage. Stinging nettle essential oil is frequently an ingredient in organic shampoos and conditioners.

8. Rosemary

Used for centuries in cultures worldwide to promote hair growth and delay the onset of gray hair, Rosemary oil stimulates blood circulation of the scalp. A refreshing daily rinse of rosemary leaves simmered in water retains hair color. The rinse is most effective on dark hair. A few drops of rosemary oil can be added to olive oil and used as a scalp massage oil.

So interesting! Ladies, have you tried any of these? How do they work on your hair?

Ooooo, that sounds interesting. How long have you been using rosemary in your hair? I’m interested in growing my hair back out after a drastic hair cut. But I want to do so in a healthy way and form better habits. When it was long I was styling it too much and I rarely saw growth. This time I want to leave it alone, but also keep my scalp healthy with natural products. And if I can make them myself (low budget) all the more better!

I use Jojoba Oil at the moment but not tried any of the others, Can you use these whilst pregnant?

Hyspin
Guest
Hyspin

Definite no on the rosemary and peppermint. As for Lavender I think your supposed to avoid it when pregnant just in case it is in essential oil form. As for the others I not certain. Saw Palmetto if I remember correctly affects hormones so I think it should be no as well.

Aloe vera should be fine though. But you may want to look them up just incase.

How did you make your rosemary oil?

LillianMae
Guest

I usually buy fresh rosemary and olive oil, add the rosemary to a jar w/ a tight lid and fill the oil to cover the herb. Cover tightly with a lid and put it in a dark place for a minimum of two weeks. Shake it at least once a week. The longer you leave it, the more potent it will be.

I wrote an article about the ways you can infuse your oils with herbs.

I’d also like to add basil oil to this list. Like rosemary oil, basil oil also stimulates blood circulation and promotes growth. While it’s not an oil, chamomile is also a great hair product. I add dried chamomile to my aloe vera and vegetable glycerin spray.

I’m on that for health reasons, but it really does the hair and skin wonders. They say the liquid is best, but take the capsules if the idea of drinking two teaspoons of fish oil makes you scream. =)

ive tried most of the mixes on this list except the wheat germ, aloe and coconut milk combo. They all work really well. I have been using lately an aloe juice/rosewater combo with jojoba oil and herbal extracts of burdock and lavender. Extracts are a bit cheaper than essential oils but they dont have as strong a smell ( also called tinctures). These have worked wonderfully for my scalp and hair. I plan to try that combo this weekend on my hair and let you all know how it goes 🙂

Very much enjoying the conversation, Ladies. Watch out, Scalp. Rosemary oil prepared and seasoning, as I write! But I am wondering, what would be the best oil mix to use on the actual hair itself? I am mixed (Mother Irish, Father African) and my hair texture is pretty much in between, and curly, so I do need to use a light hair moisturiser. What would you recommend? Thanks in advance, from a desperate woman in London!!

Charlene
Guest

Hi Nicole! I would recommend Coconut Oil because it’s a natural moisturizer while penetrating the hair shaft and it doesn’t just lay on the hair. Also it’s not greasy L:) HHG!

Hi Nicole — You and I have the same kind of “in between” hair. My hair has some parts wavy, straight, thick/thin.…anyways, Yes you can mix coconut oil with any oil. That’s another reason why I love to use it. Also, because I try not to blow-dry or flat iron my hair (unless I really need to). After I wash it and comb it out, I apply coconut oil to it, put it into a ponytail and then wrap it in a little scarf. When I take the wrap off, my hair stays in place for the whole day and… Read more »

I think argan oil is the best natural thing you can put on hair. My favorite argan oil is from this brand called Pro Naturals (got it online at Beyas) because it’s also a heat protectant and it’s very light and has a really nice, subtle smell. You can put some on your damp hair after a shower and it’ll fix your hair all day long, it’s really good for breakage, frizz, dryness and to prevent hair loss and split ends. It’s better than olive oil, almond oil, coconut and a whole lot of others. It absorbs better and helps… Read more »

Before applying oil to your hair, apply some sort of water/aloe Vera juice or liquid product, this opens the hair follicle and helps the oil to penetrate the hair strand, I am 4a and I use the l.o.c (apply liquid, then oil then some sort of creamy product) method to moisturize and seal my hair, I would say it works because my hair is thriving and always shiny.

DiDi

I read that oils DO NOT clog your pores. I found this hard to believe as I was always taught that oils would “stop your scalp from breathing.” I also read that since your hair grows from underneath the scalp, it’s going to push it’s way through and therefore it will grow regardless. Oil attracts dirt to your hair and scalp. Our hair automatically produces “sebum” (natural oils). If we didn’t wash our hair for a month or longer, our hair still grows. Although it would probably be cluttered with dirt from the excess oil, but the growth process would… Read more »

Only products with petroleum/mineral oil cause this buildup effect. Natural, unprocessed oils mimmick sebum, which is the oil your body naturally produces. This promotes hair growth and hair nourishment.

I’ve been using rosemary for about a year now and I’ve seen significant growth and improvement in my Locs. I do advise focusing what you put in your body as well as what you put on your hair.

Hey ya’ll! First I’m going to say that I’m Native American and Black, my hair is kinky, and my hair at one point was past where my bra strap would have been and much much MUCH more thick than it is now. Over the years, I have not been taking the proper care of it like I am suppose to. I am now 19, in college, and trying to grow my hair back. I just cut my hair twice in the past couple of weeks.

I know I’m late with this reply, but you should investing in good lace wigs for the times you have your photo shoots or have your stylist bring the wigs to you custom made to the shoot. You must remember that constant hair stress like ponytails, dyes, and heat will take a toll on your hair. I am in no way affiliated with this website or the owners or wig makers but you should really take a look at louisepierre.com their units look very natural.

My favourite oil at the moment is Jojoba- it is light and easy to use. I do like the Jamaican Castor oil- but as its quite heavy, its not for frequent use. However there are so many different types of oils out there- which is the greatest thing as you can mix and match depending on how your hair feels at that time. NubianSisters.com

Once you have heat damage, the only thing you can do is cut it off or slowly transition by wearing style to camouflage the heat damage. But eventually you will have to cut off the damage. As for the breakage, a proper moisture and protein balance is in order. Are you doing enough protein and moisturizing deep conditioning treatments? To moisturize is not enough if your hair is not strong. Check out the blog The Science of Black Hair as well as the book of the same name. As for the weak nape hair, can’t really tell by your description… Read more »

Shamika, When applying oil, I section my hair and pour a few droplets, and then smooth the oil through my hair with my fingers from root to tip (but I’m kinda heavy-handed with my oils). A lot of people have said they use a hair dye applicator bottle to put oils in, and that’s another easy way to apply as well. Your hair isn’t growing unevenly in truth; hair grows at the same rate all over your head. It just seems like it’s growing unevenly because some parts are breaking off more than the others. I had this problem a… Read more »

Hi Everyone, a good detox may help also. Because our bodies are full of toxins, we may start experiencing imbalances that show themselves on the outside of our bodies, i.e., hair falling out, acne, weight gain, etc. Imbalances also manifest themselves on the inside of our bodies, i.e., cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. A good detox will put you on the right track to restoring balance to your body and the proper healing will take place with some time.

Keep hair moisturized, trim when needed, and don’t flatiron or style so often and your hair will grow before you know it. Also less is more.

Oils are very important for hair growth. Especially when dealing with dry hair, not everyone can use the same oils due to differences in texture and amount of hair. I have tried many many, and so far jojoba oil seems to be my fav! Hair vitamins are great if you can’t use oils. The right hair vitamins will have vitamins and proteins in the ingredient lists, if you want hair to actually grow. I did find Fast Grow hair oil which has jojoba in it 🙂 have any of you used it? http://www.exoticallure.com/black-hair-tips/5‑Reasons-to-Use-Fast-Grow-Hair-Oil.htm

I have been transitioning for one year and four months. It has been really rough. I hate hair wash days, simply bcuz it takes HOURS from beginning to end! I’m still struggling with finding the right product.…my hair seems extremely dry, especially after washing. Thank all of u who post info to help ppl like me. 🙂 I should hv tapped into these resources early on. So…I don’t cry AS MUCH on hair wash days, but pls send moisturizing products that work for you.… Thx Sistahs! Luv y’all!

Hair Oil Reviews

I think a lot of people don’t realise that many of their problems begin with the shampoos they use. Many people are so sensitive to the chemicals in these products. If they can use a base shampoo with a few drops of an essential oil in it, then once the hair is dry use a hair oil that is appropriate for their hair condition and hair type.I have thick, curly hair so a medium,heavy oil works for me but every ones hair type is different so a little research is a good idea.

4. Lavender Oil/Lavender Water “Use the lavender infused oil as a daily scalp massage. Apply and leave on overnight. In the morning, wash hair with a gentle organic shampoo and style as usual.” Can someone clarify the statement referenced above? This oil infusion should not be left in your hair. Should I do a daily massage at night and then wash it out in the morning? I get the sense the author is given readers two options. The other questions are whether or not ethnic hair should be washed daily? Does this regimen strip the hair of its natural oils?… Read more »

This is my 10 year old daughters hair… I love her natural hair.. I use Jane Carter products along with natural products such as aloes and coconut oil … Lately I’ve noticed that her ends are breaking off and I’m not sure why!.. I use the stretching method and haven’t used the blow dryer in 2 months!.. Her ends get extremely dry so I just get a spritz bottle and spray it!.. Can u help give me a regimen , because her hair seems to be dropping instead of growing and it has no chemicals in it!.. Please help!.. Thanks

Hi Dannie! Have you thought about using henna to make her hair stronger? I have used henna only twice in my natural hair journey, but it has made a huge difference in the strength of my hair, as well as its ability to retain moisture. Consider trimming half an inch from her ends, and trying the henna. It’s only $5 a box on eBay. After washing her hair, add a bit of conditioner to her damp hair as a leave in, and then rub some raw shea butter in your hands to soften it, and smooth it through her hair… Read more »

While you are working on ways to stimulate hair growth, try to use a hair filler (X‑Fusion) to hide the thin spots. This does in NO WAY fix the bald spots, but it will ease your un-easiness about looking so thin while you undergo treatments.

Hi J, 1st a weave won’t make a difference in growth but it is a protective style. 2nd braids would be better because she can still get to her scalp. Now coconut oil is a GREAT moisturizer,mix in some Jamaican black castor oil. Use this as often as needed. She should also co-wash her hair weekly. She can also use a lavender rinse to keep scalp clean& clear while braids are in. ( a few sprigs of fresh lavender & boiled water let cool & pour over scalp. Save left-overs for not use) I hope this helps u guys

Hi J: I don’t think weaves is the answer. It is more of a protective style… is her hair natural? If so wet set are good, natural twist/braids or maybe some wash and gos for styles vice the weaves. Weaves can get expensive and if her hair is breaking, that needs to be addressed asap! I am learning it is more technique than products. The L.O.C. METHOD WORKS for some and some deep conditioners and protein treatments. At 13, she has a LOT OF time to learn what her hair can or cannot do and what products the hair likes.… Read more »

This sounds amazing! My boyfriend has some hair loss that he feels uncomfortable about. But it’s not that his hair is gone from those areas, it just grows at a considerably slower rate from the rest of his head.
Do you think if I combined the jojoba, peppermint, aloe vera and lavender oils together it would be okay for him to spray on and try? Or should they not be mixed together?

Aloe vera is difficult to rinse out because its so sticky that it coats the hair. Rinse with an apple cider vinegar (75%) and 25% water. Let it sit for 5mins before rinsing, but afterwards, you’ll need to immediately give your hair a really good conditioning to restore moisture. The cider rinse will strip it of any buildup! However, aloe vera is still an extremely great natural ingredient for the hair. I use it right before my sauna days in the gym. The heat loosens the aloe and makes it less sticky, therefore, better penetration to hair shaft. The aloe… Read more »

Something I am learning is that we have to do some trial and error when it comes to blending essential oils with base oils. Less is always best; try making a mixture with a few drops of lavender and take it from there. Peppermint smells good, but too much makes me nauseous. Also, have you tried coconut oil? It’s pretty good in the hair and on the skin. Tamara

Mateland

We use a blend of organic coconut oil, lavender, rosemary, and tea tree in both our hair and skin moisturizers. It is all about the ratios in the blends.

ms_lydia
Guest
ms_lydia

Your ratio of essential oil to carrier oil is 2:1 which is too high. You should never have more essential oil than carrier. This can cause serious problems. See the authors directions for peppermint oil above. 3 drops to 3 Tbsp. I would suggest doing some research before using essential oils.

I agree with SandraEvadne. I tried using Aloe Vera on my hair and scalp. At first I loved it, until I realized that I couldn’t get it out!! Regardless to how much washing I did there was this white film on my hair. After I stopped using it, there was a long period of time before it was completely out of my hair. I would love to go back to using it again, but someone would have to tell what shampoo to use to get it out.

I personally use Aloe Vera as a daily moisturizer. I found a recipe somewhere. Bought Aloe Vera on a Latin grocery store, took the gel out, put it on a blender with some water,then strained that mix with a piece of cloth, and poured a few drops of lavender essential oil on it. Need to be on the refrigerator after use, cuz it goes bad if you leave it outside. Doesn’t leave any white trace, at least not on my hair. I use it as a leave in conditioner, so no need to wash it after putting on your hair.… Read more »

Hi Karyn. I have found when I treat my hair with any kind of oil, it helps if I work the shampoo directly into my hair before I actually make it wet. So first work up a great foam, make sure you do your whole head and then you add the water, then rinse. The oil washes out easily because the shampoo breaks up the oil. Good luck.

Also has anybody tried Burdock Root Oil? If so is there a major retail store that sells it? I need help. I’m transitioning because my hair is thinning (crowning) and I need something that will grow it back. I really want to avoid taking anything orally, so I would like to try the topical approach.

I’ve never used Burdock Root oil, but Lavender essential oil is good for treating hair loss and Grapeseed and Almond oils stimulate hair growth.

Yes I like Sweet Almond oil too. It’s not greasy or thick; that is one of the things I do not like about products that are on the market.. They seem to heavy. I like lavender too. Try cedarwood, rosemary and lavender. I use Young Living, as well as Mountain Rose Herbs. I used to only use Young Living, but I’d run out too fast. hahahahahha. So, I get the larger bottle from Mountain Rose Herbs and it lasts a long time.

Also, check out the Vitamin Shoppe; I’ve gotten my base oils (jojoba, apricot kernel, sweet almond, grapeseed, etc.) from there and they just may have it. Argan oil is good for the hair and skin as well, but it is pricey. It’s worth it, though. Tamara

With that in mind I asked Services by Le Shell what’s in her products and some of the oils you have listed is in all of her products. Just used in combination with each other. And the lesson she taught to us is your body eats in different ways. She had us do steam… Read more »

I went the 100% natural route a year ago and lost nearly 50% of my hair. When it came to detangling my hair natural products did not cut it for me. For the ladies that can do this, that’s great. These days I incorporate natural products into my regimen but I’m not going back to using 100% natural products again. No thanks.

Burdock root and stinging nettles are new ones for me. My mum has always had essential oils hanging around the house, so for me jojoba and peppermint were always used in my hair. I have found that mustard seed oil mixed with lotus oil and water in a spray bottle strengthen and promote longer lasting moisture without any excess grease.

Hi, I know this is a site for women but as a guy I very much loved this post. I am a 53 year old man that started loosing his hair in his 20s and since I change my diet I have noticed my hair growing back. I found it refreshing to find a post that didn’t just tell you what natural things to use for hair but also how to use them. I will be giving these a try and also my mother will be getting this info because she is worried about hair lose right now also. Thanks!

Has anyone tried ordering JBCO from amazon? Not sure if it is the real thing or not. It is $9.99 and $11.99 for the ones that I want, but the shipping is an additional $9.99. That seems a little steep to me. Any suggestions?

I used to order JBCO online, but then Sally’s started carrying it for 6.99 for 4oz. It’s got grape seed, carrot, and soybean oil as well, but I’m finding that it works just as well as the pure version.

Just a quick heads up, if you are allergic to any nut, ie peanut or tree nuts, please do a patch test before applying to your whole head. Most times if you can’t eat it without having a bad reaction you also can’t wear it without having a bad reaction. I learned this the hard way when I got all willy nilly with some coconut oil. Argan oil, shea butter, and jojoba oils are all derived from tree nuts. Please beware.

well right now I think my hair is damaged beyond repair!!! every time I wash my hair I loose like a whole handful of hair, I don’t think that’s normal and even while brushing or combing or even running my fingers through my hair causes it to break… its almost as if my hair is breaking from the roots, I’m just thinking about cutting it all off and starting over. Btw my hair is relaxed

SandraEvadne

You should try using a deep conditioner. Maybe the perm you are using is too much for your hair. How often are you relaxing and when did your hair start falling out. Do you need a trim? Maybe you should go and see a hair stylist or maybe even a doctor, the problem might be beneath your scalp.

I am pretty hard on folks using correct spelling/grammar. Although I have a bad habit of using shorthand due to years of working in customer service, I still find it hard to curb my tongue, or my fingers (in typing). However, that being said, I have learned that judging another based on this alone is utterly ridiculous.

Wondering if you can mix some of these together in the olive oil so you’re not massaging all of them into your hair or would that smell funny or not work?

I mix my essentials with a base of olive, coconut, castor, and jojoba…an even amount of them all. Pure essentials can burn or the smell will aggravate asthma. So add as much of each essential that you’re going to use as you want, start small, and increase based on your nose’s tolerance. That’s how I do it.

My daughter had hair loss at her temples and the nape of her neck. I am having success with using the peppermint oil and lavender oil in olive oil and water. I think when trying to stop hair breakage you have to find a style that will not cause the tension breakage. We have been using these oils since Sept 2013 and have had a little over an inch of growth in those areas.
