DIY Hair Growth Treatments

Lavender oil
Dubbed as “The Beauty Oil” for women, lavender oil is a well-known remedy for obtaining beautiful and long hair and enjoys delightful reviews all across the World Wide Web. It is appreciated for healing alopecia, the condition in which you lose hair in patches or you find you hair becoming ever thinner. Furthermore, it is a key ingredient for most spa treatments, and is known for lowering stress and helping you sleep better at night. The best way to use lavender oil is by mixing it with jojoba and rosemary oil and applying the essential oil mix to your scalp. Enclose the surface with a shower cap and let it sit for around one hour. Relax, rinse, and repeat regularly for outstanding results and a gorgeous head of long hair.

Scalp Massage
Massaging your scalp helps improve circulation and hence stimulates hair growth, and you only need to do it for about five minutes daily to see results. Just rub your fingers on your scalp in a circular motion, applying gentle pressure and kneading occasionally to open up the blood vessels and increase blood flow.

Rosemary
Rosemary is an excellent herb for your hair. It promotes growth of long hair, strengthens the roots, and eliminates dandruff. The herb has antioxidant properties that boost hair growth. In addition, the sulfur and silica content in rosemary helps reverse hair loss.

Mix two drops of rosemary essential oil in two tablespoons of a base oil such as olive, coconut, jojoba,  or avocado oil. Apply it on your hair and massage the scalp. Leave it on for at least half an hour and then shampoo your hair as usual.

Castor Oil
Castor oil facilitates hair growth because it is rich in omega-9 fatty acids and vitamin E. The thick oil moisturizes your hair, adds volume, prevents frizzing, and also fights scalp infections.
  • It is best to mix castor oil with an equal amount of a base oil to get a better consistency and enhance the benefits. Rub it on your scalp and massage. Leave it on for 30 to 45 minutes. Finally, rinse it out and shampoo your hair. If it is difficult to remove, use a clarifying shampoo.
  • To make it more effective, mix four drops of rosemary essential oil in an ounce of castor oil and then use it on your hair and scalp.

Eggs
Hair is made up of keratin protein and eggs are a great source of protein. Thus, they are highly beneficial in helping your hair grow.
  • Whisk two egg yolks and mix in two tablespoons of olive oil. Apply the mixture on your scalp and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it out with cold water and then shampoo your hair as usual.
  • Alternatively, mix one egg and one-quarter cup each of plain yogurt and mayonnaise in a blender. Apply this hair mask and cover your hair with a shower cap. Leave it on for at least half an hour before rinsing it out.

  •  Lemon
    Lemons are rich in vitamin C and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, folic acid, and other nutrients. Plus, they are loaded with antioxidants. In addition to hair growth, lemon juice promotes smooth, shiny, dandruff-free hair. When applied on the scalp, it stimulates circulation and hence prevents hair loss. Do not use lemon juice in excess though, as it can lighten your hair colour over time.
    1. Mix one part lemon juice and two parts of coconut or olive oil.
    2. Apply it on your hair and scalp and leave it on for 30 to 45 minutes.
    3. Wash it out and then shampoo your hair with a mild shampoo.
    Repeat once or twice a week.
     


    Coconut Milk

    Coconut milk contains vitamins B, C, and E, as well as calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, selenium, and numerous other nutrients. It nourishes your hair, promotes hair growth, and prevents hair loss. You can simply include fresh coconut milk in your diet, or try one of these remedies.
    • Massage your scalp with coconut milk, leave it on for at least half an hour and then wash it out with lukewarm water. Do this two to four times a month.
    • Apply a combination of one-quarter cup each of coconut milk, wheat germ oil, and aloe vera gel. All these ingredients encourage hair growth, and aloe vera contains an enzyme that decreases hair loss.
    • Mix coconut milk with avocado pulp, olive oil, and a little honey to make a nourishing hair mask.
