If you are looking for a natural remedy to stop hair loss and encourage new hair growth, there has been some evidence that certain oils are just as effective as medicated treatments, minus all the toxins and dangerous side effects. These effective oils when applied topically help to stimulate the scalp and encourage the flow and circulation of blood throughout the body.
Natural Oils to Encourage Hair Growth
There are many oils that promote hair growth quickly and easily. In this recipe, I use:
- Castor oil – Castor oil not only halts hair loss, but it can double normal hair growth rates . Castor oil is rich in ricinoleic acid—a type of fatty acid known to fight inflammation. When applied to the scalp, it can promote healthy hair growth and prevent hair loss. Find it here
- Black Seed Oil – Black seed oil possesses many benefits but it is especially wonderful for hair growth. One study found that black seed oil mixed with coconut oil helped promote hair growth, while another white paper found that hair fallout was reduced by 76 percent. (I use this one)
- Rosemary Oil – Several clinical studies have found that rosemary essential oil is particularly effective for treating male or female pattern baldness and may even be effective for alopecia. A 2015 clinical trial published in PubMed.gov states that rosemary oil was just as effective as minoxidil in preventing hair loss and encouraging new hair growth. (I use this one)
1/4 cup castor oil
