8 Herbs & Oils that Promote Hair Growth

• Nov 28, 2011


Style Icon Cinni

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!

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.

How did you make your rosemary oil?

LillianMae

Reply to  Kery

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.

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!!

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 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.

Does it matter if I steep rosemary/lavender/burdock root in water and mix it into my shampoo, instead of oil? I used oils and it made my hair too greasy, even after using a vinegar rinse. Will I still get the hair growth benefit using the leaves/root?

@MsBayBeauty coconut oil does not clog the pores, it does however act as a sealant to lock in moisture. Source: http://www.exoticallure.com/blog/Coconut-oil-and-Black-hair-Growth.htm

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.

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.

Or not focus so much at all, then one day you will notice your hair has actually grown. Hair grows about a centimeter a month. That’s 6 inches a year.

My mom has been praying over my sister and I hair from since when we were little girls. I now pray over my hair when I do it and by the full and wonderful grace of GOD I always have long, full, and thick hair. And so does my sister. We are both 4b and some 4c. So I know the power of prayer.

Thank you. Amazing, I pray over most things that concern me, but I never even thought about asking God’s help in caring for my hair. I also have 4c hair and have been natural for 20 years, but my hair has never grown to more than shoulder length. Thanks for reminding me that the Lord cares for even the hairs on our head and that we can always seek His help with anything. 

May God bless you and your family.

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 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.

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 »
