Protect Your Hair with Argan Oil hot oil hair treatmentA Scientifically Tested Natural Oil Hair Growth Formula

Oils for hair growth are used in cultures are around the world.

Two studies that were carried out in Scotland [1] and South Korea [3] tested the effectiveness of some of these folk remedies.
Could something as simple as a natural oil really help with baldness and hair loss?

A group of 86 subjects were given a blend of essential oils in a mix of carrier oils to apply to the scalp once a day.
After 6 months
44% of the test subjects had clear hair regrowth.

This is as good a result as the most widely used hair growth drug minoxidil – but without the side-effects. [1][4]

Next we will describe how to re-create the formulas used in these tests.

 

Making a Natural Oil Hair Growth Serum

Step 1: Choosing a carrier oil

Essential oils are powerful and some can cause skin irritation if applied undiluted.
Before use most essential oils need to be added to a carrier oil.

Carrier oils are usually oils rich in Vitamin E and Omega fatty acids.
These nutrients condition and repair the hair shaft and cleanse the scalp and, hair follicles.

The most popular choices for carriers oils are Jojoba Oil [1] [9], Argan Oil, Evening Primrose, Grape-seed Oil and Coconut Oil.
Jojoba oil should always be included in a carrier oil blend. It is similar to your scalp’s own natural oily secretions which gives it scalp cleaning properties.

Pure coconut oil is also an essential ingredient. It is solid at room temperatures and needs to be blended with Argan Oil so that it will stay liquid.

Step 2: Oils that Stimulate Hair Growth, Thicken Hair and Slow Greying

Pumpkin Seed Oil
Test were carried out using Pumpkin seed oil on 76 male patients mild to moderate androgenetic alopecia (AGA).
The results showed that the group applying Pumpkin Seed Oil had more hair after treatment than the placebo group.
In fact hair counts showed an increase of 40% over the 24 week study period. [3]

Thyme Essential Oil ( Thymus vulgaris )
The active ingredient in thyme oil is thymol.
This is a powerful antiseptic and bactericide and inhibits enzyme activity in the hair follicle to encourage hair growth. [1]

Rosemary ( Rosmarinus officinalis ct verbenone )
Is widely used in shampoos and hair tonics for its reputation for encouraging new hair growth by stimulating circulation. [1]
It is also anti-inflammatory.

Lavender Oil
Lavender is an ancient anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial oil for reviving damaged hair.
Lavendat is also used for reducing stress an important factor in many hair loss patterns.

How to use Natural Oils for Hair Conditioning & Repair

Application
Simply massage the scalp with the oil serum.
Then work the oil down into the hair from the root to the tip.

Wrap the hair in hot towels and keep as hot as possible for 20 to 30 minutes.
Keeping the hair hot will help the oils to penetrate and work on your hair.

Wearing a plastic shower will help to prevent oils from being absorbed into the towels and keep them on your hair.
Wash out excess oil with a light shampoo.

How often should the  hair be treated?
During research studies oil serums were applied daily.
This may not be practical in everyday life. But try to do the treatment 3 times a week.

Any hair treatment regimen will need to be followed for at least 12 to 24 weeks.


16 Herbs & Tonics for Healthy Hair

Finally, there are many herbs and vitamins that can imrpove hair growth.
Here is our list of the most useful ones.

1. Juniper Tonic & Dandruff :
Even a common condition like dandruff can be a cause of hair loss so be sure to treat any unusual problems of the scalp.  A very effective hair tonic can be made from Juniper. Use a mixture of 10 drops juniper oil to 1 ounce jojoba oil and apply to scalp to promote hair growth and to eradicate dandruff. Allow to remain on scalp for 15 minutes to half an hour, then shampoo as usual.

2. Indian Herbal Stimulant:
Mix 2 tablespoons of amla (Indian gooseberry), reetha (from the soapnut tree), and shikakai, which comes from a shrub native to India. Add egg and form a paste. Apply on scalp and massage throughout hair. Let sit for 25 to 30 minutes, then rinse and cleanse with a mild shampoo. Try this 3 times per week for one month to help hair regrow naturally.

3. Saw Palmetto:
has been used to treat hair loss for decades. It is the primary active ingredient found in the vast majority of natural hair loss remedies and may help hair regrow naturally. This may be because Saw Palmetto helps reduce the DHT hormone levels in the body that can cause the hair loss.

4. Stinging nettle:
One of the most common herbs used in traditional folk medicine, is said to help regrow hair.

5. Gotu kola:
This popular herb is available in its natural form at many health food stores for hair growth.

8. Vitamin A:
Essential for hair growth, but too much vitamin A can actually cause hair loss, so be sure to take no more than 100,000 IU each day. And try natural food sources such as mango, orange, carrot, sweet potato, and squash.

9 Vitamin B
boosts the production of hemoglobin, which helps the scalp receive enough oxygen to stay healthy and promote hair growth. Be sure to consume potatoes, bananas, garbanzo beans/chickpeas, chicken breast, oatmeal, pork loin, and roast beef.

10. Folic acid:
Found in collard greens, lentils, garbanzo beans/chickpeas, papaya, peas, and asparagus, folic acid contributes to natural hair regrowth.

11. Vitamin E:
This  helps blood circulate to the scalp and improve hair growth, can be found in most cereals, almonds, safflower oil, corn oil, and soybean oil. Argan Oil is super-rich in vitamin E and can also be taken in Culinary Oil form.

12. Vitamin C:
Required for the healthy development of collagen, which is necessary for growing strong hair. Enjoy kiwi fruit, guava, red peppers, and oranges.

13: Exercise.
Daily exercise improves circulation throughout your body, including your scalp, which can result in faster hair growth. Be sure to get your heart pumping at least 3 to 4 times each week.
