Hair loss is pretty common in men and women of various ages and can come in the form of alopecia, pattern baldness, PCOS and many other conditions. Hair Oiling is a proven traditional solution to hair growth and there are various types of oils that promote new growth, enhance thickness and prevent further damage. So, if you’re experiencing any type of hair loss, hair oiling might be the answer to your problems! We’ve put together a list of the best oils for hair growth to help you on your hair growth journey
Native to Mediterranean countries, rosemary has been proven to have hair loss-preventing properties and has been prominent in Mediterranean cultures as a staple ingredient in hair growth rinses dating back centuries. It works by increasing blood circulation in the scalp, which in turn nourishes the hair follicles and promotes hair regrowth. It also has anti-fungal properties which makes it great at tackling dandruff and soothing the scalp
Coconut oil is popular for its wide range of benefits for the hair, including its ability to nourish the scalp and promote the growth of thick, luscious strands. The high concentrations of fatty acids found in coconut oil allows it the ability to deeply penetrate the follicles of the hair and provide it the nourishment it needs to grow thicker and longer while protecting against heat damage. Applying coconut oil to your hair daily may save you a few visits to the hair salon for trims, as its great absorbability prevents breakage due to split ends.
Extracted from castor beans, castor oil is a nutrient-filled oil that is clinically proven to have amazing hair growth properties. It is rich in Vitamin E, which is also proven to increase the movement of blood capillaries surrounding hair follicles and therefore boosts hair growth. While castor oil is amazing for growth, it is important to note that it is quite thick in consistency and is most effective when mixed with a more lightweight oil to aid in its absorption into the roots and strands
Olive oil has for many years mainly been used in the kitchen for cooking, but more recently it’s been recognised for its benefits as a hair growth stimulant. It acts as inhibitor for the binding of DHT, (a hormone that shrinks hair follicles, resulting in the growth of fine, brittle hair) to the scalp. This therefore makes olive oil a great agent for the prevention of hair loss such as pattern baldness. It also acts as a natural conditioner for dry hair due to its high oleic acid content, which is used to lock in moisture.
The oils mentioned above (all of which can be found in the Meeno Cosmetics Hair Growth Oil
), have their own great individual benefits for the hair. Combine these oils together and you’ll have a super high-performing Hair Growth Oil that is bound to take your hair growth journey to the next level!
