When hoping for it to grow, many women turn to shampoos that promise rapid growth. However, if you are looking for something more natural, today we are going to show you 5 fantastic natural oils that help accelerate hair growth!

  1. Almond oil

Rich in vitamin E, fatty acids, and several other nutrients, almond oil is normally recommended for those with dry, lifeless hair. Among its effects, It moistures the hair and seals its cuticles, leaving it stronger than ever before! This oil is used by those who want to speed up growth since it reduces hair loss and due to its high quantity of magnesium, that is great to grow the mane! 

As we said before, you can apply it directly to the scalp – remember to massage it so the nutrients penetrate the capillary fiber deeply – or mix it with a little bit of conditioner and leave it for a few minutes before washing with an anti-residue shampoo!

  1. Rosemary essential oil

Rosemary essential oil is rarely found in stores, so you probably will have to DIY[2]Gotter, A. (2019, April 23). Essential Oils for Hair. Healthline. But don’t worry, it’s very simple! You have to heat up some olive oil or other oil of your choice and add some fresh or dry rosemary. Leave it for a few minutes and then let it cool. After that, apply it to your scalp and let it act overnight or for at least 10 minutes before rinsing!

This oil is amazing for all hair types because it helps increase blood circulation and cellular renovation, which is totally related to capillary growth! So massage it a lot on your scalp after you apply it!

  1. Lavender essential oil

Oh, I can already feel the amazing smell of lavender… Despite its amazing fragrance, lavender can be used as an essential oil (which means, it must be used in a combo with olive or coconut oil so it has more effectiveness). Among its wonderful benefits, we can cite the increase of hair follicles number, reduction of hair loss, antimicrobial and  antiseptic properties! 

If you want your mane to look thicker and to grow rapidly, you should use it every two weeks with a carrier oil (olive or coconut oil, for example), apply it to the scalp and hair length, massage it and let it act overnight!

After that, use an anti-residue shampoo!

  1. Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil is an amazing moisturizer! When used correctly, it leaves the hair completely frizz-free, soft, and strong! It also has healing properties that interfere with its growth: it promotes the production of new cells. And if you have dandruff, this oil will work wonders for you as well! 

Try to use it once a week, applying it directly to the hair and scalp or mixing it with conditioner or treatment mask! Let it act for about an hour before you wash it out or leave it during the night and wash your hair in the morning.
