My DIY Hair Growth Oil

Creating your own hair products is an awesome idea! It is easy now that beauty supply stores and Amazon offer essential oils and other simple products at a reasonable price. Plus, when you make your own stuff, you don’t have to worry about a company discontinuing your favorite hairline or hiking up the price.

For the past year or so, I’ve been making my own hair oil for a healthy scalp, moisture retention, and hair growth. Here’s what I use:

  • Jojoba Oil: high in vitamin B and E
  • Castor Oil: high in vitamin E, minerals, and Omega 6 and 9, used to thicken hair
  • Olive Oil: high in vitamins A and E, antioxidants, helps protect the keratin in hair  
  • Peppermint Oil: antifungal, antimicrobial, stimulates hair growth
  • Tea Tree Oil: helps to unclog pores, nourishes roots, also antifungal

Making the mixture is so easy and it takes only a few minutes. I use an old Jojoba oil jar as my container. I like having a dropper when I apply my oils because I think it makes it easier.  But you can use whatever container you like.

All I do is fill my container 1/3 of the way with jojoba oil, 1/3 of the way with castor oil, and 1/3 of the way with olive oil.  Once I put them in, the container should essentially be full. Then I just add a few drops of Peppermint oil and Tea Tree oil. Voila!

Just because I’m extra, I also like to add a little bit of decoration to the bottle.

How do I use it?

I mix the oil in my shea butter to create a puree.  I also use the oil in my LOC regimen. First, I spritz my hair with some water. I then take a few drops of the oil and rub it into my hair. I then seal it all in with the shea butter puree. It might be a little redundant, but it works for me!

What oils do you use in your hair care regimen?

Thank you for reading!

    Wud this work for relaxed hair?

      To be honest, I can’t say for sure. The majority of my hair at this point is natural but my ends are still relaxed. Since I’ve been using this oil mix, I have had a lot less breakage at the ends, which makes me think that it is nourishing even for the relaxed parts. I’m sorry I can’t give you more of a definitive answer, but I hope this is at least somewhat helpful.
