If you are concerned that you might be losing your hair or just really want to see your hair shine and your scalp stay nice and smooth, here are the 5 best oils for natural hair growth and maintenance. Keep in mind these are the core ingredients that many of the expensive hair products use and you can buy these yourself from Amazon saving you a ton of money!
1. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has to be one of our most favorite products because it truly is one of those “cure all” products. The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil prevents the loss of proteins and replaces the natural oils lost when you shampoo your hair.
2. Olive Oil
Most hair loss is caused by the hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and olive oil helps stop DHT from affecting your hair in this way. Olive oil is also known for enriching your scalp with nutrients that keeps your hair rich and full as well as ridding your skin of free radicals because it is loaded with antioxidants. If you want that rich shiny look that models have, olive oil is the trick they use!
3. Lavender Oil
Lavender oil is one of the best ways to fight Alopecia areata (the most common reason people lose their hair). Because it is a powerful antiseptic, the disinfecting properties fight off many viruses, fungi, and microbes which causes so many problems with peoples hair.
4. Castor Oil
Castorl oil is another one of those “cure all” ingredients and because of its Ricinoleic Acid property (a strong anti-bacterial and anti-fungicidal agent), it protects the hair and scalp from infections. The omega-9 fatty acids and humectant properties in the oil moisturize and nourish hair leaving it thick, shiny and strong
5. Jojoba Oil
The way jojoba oil works is very simple: instead of penetrating your hair it actually seals up the hair folicle to keep the moisture in. Our bodies secrete a natural oil called sebum and we lose this oil over time. Jojoba oil helps keep it in!
