Which Essential Oils Assist in Hair Growth?
There are thousands of essential oils out there but what essential oils are good for hair growth in particular? Check out the list below:
» Rosemary – With its strong fresh herbal scent, rosemary oil is extracted from the leaves of the herb rosemary. Rosemary oil has powerful hair growth boosting properties. It has a stimulant effect which rushes blood to each and every hair follicle, including the ones stuck in the ‘dormant’ phase, unable to function any more. The stimulation awakens those follicles and fosters growth of new hairs while strengthening existing ones.
» Lavender – A floral oil with a pleasant scent, lavender is most versatile when it comes to essential oils. It is known to be a powerful hair growth aid that assists in fighting hair loss, balding, thinning edges and alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease whether the immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles, causing hair loss.
» Cedarwood – Cedarwood is calming and good for relaxation, however, research shows that it is also an effective natural treatment for hair loss issues. It helps restore lost hair, strengthen hair follicles and promote growth of strong thick and luscious hair.
» Thyme – A warming oil, thyme also stimulates the hair follicles and aids in hair growth. It also protects the scalp from bacteria, microbes and fungi that cause dandruff and scalp fungal infections.
» Peppermint – When applied on the scalp, peppermint oil gives a pleasant tingling sensation that is said to invigorate the hair follicles and awaken even the sleeping ones which leads to hair growth. Peppermint also refreshes the scalp, fights oily scalp, removes dandruff and relieves itchy scalp issues.
» Sweet Basil – Another herbal oil like rosemary, sweet basil is cooling and helps heal the scalp of inflammation, nourish the hair follicles and help then produce strong long and thick hairs.
