How to Use Essential Oils for Hair Growth

Most people know that you can use essential oils to greatly improve the health of your skin and hair. But did you also know that you can use essential oils for hair growth as well? There are number of essential oils that can not only make your hair thicker and stronger, but can also make it grow far faster as well. So, how do you use essential oils for hair growth?

Well, the first thing you need to do is pick which essential oils you intend to use for the process. There are a number of different oils that can be used to improve hair growth, but the most common and easiest to obtain are rosemary and sage. Rosemary is one of the safest essential oils to use, though you still shouldn’t use it on a pregnant woman, a child, or anyone with known health issues. Sage is more potent than rosemary, and will cause hair to grow at an even faster rate. Whichever you choose, be sure to remember that essential oils are never meant to be used directly on the hair or skin on their own.

There are two possible methods for getting the essential oils on your hair. The first is to mix the essential oil with a carrier oil, which is an oil that is completely neutral, and does nothing but dilute the essential oil so that it’s not quite so concentrated. You can use anything from olive oil to MCT oil as a carrier oil for this. Once you’ve mixed the essential oil with the carrier oil, simply rub it into your scalp and you’re done.

The other way to do it is to mix the essential oil into your shampoo or conditioner. This method is easy and somewhat effective, but it does have the disadvantage of washing most of the essential oil off of your scalp almost immediately.

So, first you need to choose which essential oil you want to use for hair growth, whether that’s rosemary, sage, or something else. Then all you need to do is either mix it with a carrier oil and apply it, or mix it with your shampoo or conditioner and rinse as normal. Do this repeatedly and you’ll hopefully start to see some results.
