There are numerous claims today of products that can grow hair. For those suffering from hair loss problems, these products, although expensive, seem tempting. With a little information, you can find natural products that are less expensive and have a better success rate. Familiarize yourself with the different oils and their uses. The key to success with oils in hair growth is persistence. It may take up to seven months to see results, so don't give up too soon.

Rosemary Oil

Rosemary oil is often used in shampoo. Rosemary has the ability to stimulate the hair follicles, which results in hair growth. Rosemary helps hair grow not only longer, but stronger.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil has the ability to loosen and remove crusted build up on the scalp. This build up is known to block hair follicles and inhibit hair growth.

Lavender Oil

Lavender oil is used for many purposes one of which is hair loss. Several smaller studies have shown that individuals suffering from alopecia (hair loss) who massaged their heads daily with lavender and other essential oils had significant hair re-growth over the course of seven months.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is excellent for nourishing hair and helping it have a beautiful shine. Massaging coconut oil into the scalp ensures that the hair is free of lice, lice eggs and dandruff and helps with the nourishment and re-growth of damaged hair.

Thyme Oil

Thyme oil is used to promote hair growth by improving circulation to the scalp through massage. Thyme provides hair with shine, luster and bounce.

Hair Regrowth Mixture

Mix three drops of lavender, two drops of thyme, two drops of rosemary, 4 tsp. grape seed oil (carrier oil), and 1/2 tsp. jojoba oil. Mix these ingredients well and then massage into scalp for two minutes. You can wrap a warm towel around your head to increase absorption. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo after one hour. Do this daily for up to seven months.
