Experts use distillation and evaporation to extract essential oils from plants. These essential oils have numerous health benefits, including aiding with hair growth.
Lavender oil may speed up hair growth. Studies show lavender oil increases hair growth in mice. The essential oil reduces stress and spurs cell division in humans. The antibacterial properties of lavender oil also improve scalp health. Mix lavender oil with olive oil and soak it directly into your scalp for ten minutes. Then, wash out with shampoo. You can apply this remedy several times throughout the week.
Horsetail Plant Oil
Horsetail plant oil contains the vitamin known as silica. Silica strengthens hair and boosts its growth rate. A 2015 study focused on women who reported thin hair. The study found that oral horsetail plant oil strengthens and grows hair. You can take the oil orally, mix it with carrier oil, and apply it to the scalp.
Rosemary oil enhances cell regeneration uniquely. One study found rosemary oil and minoxidil equally effective for hair growth. It didn’t cause the itchy scalp that minoxidil did.
Thyme oil prevents hair loss by stimulating the scalp. This essential oil is particularly potent. We recommend only using two drops of the oil at a time on your scalp and diluting with a carrier oil. Let the mixture sit for ten minutes before rinsing out.
Peppermint induces a tingling feeling in the areas of the skin where it is applied. Studies reveal that peppermint oil boosts follicle count and depth in mice.
Essential oils are a great way to increase hair strength and stimulate hair growth. However, no oils are shown to be effective at preventing hair loss completely or permanently.
