1. Olive Oil
A useful tip for faster hair growth involves the use of olive oil. The important constituents of olive oil, that include vitamin D, vitamin E, and B vitamins (niacin and biotin), help to get rid of bald patterns on the scalp. Hair regrowth is certainly possible by daily massaging the scalp with olive oil. Many hair experts regard olive oil as the best oil for hair loss. Vitamin E in olive oil helps to improve blood flow to the scalp, which in turn stimulates hair growth. When it comes to its usage, a carrier oil such as jojoba oil is added to olive oil and then it is applied on the scalp.

2. Coconut Oil
Another oil that has been effective to encourage hair growth is coconut oil. When it comes to proper hair care, many people prefer to use coconut oil. It is inexpensive and considered to be a very good option for hair conditioning. A scalp massage with coconut oil is a recommended approach to significantly decrease hair loss. As minerals and vitamins form important ingredients of coconut oil, its application on the scalp not only improves hair growth but also helps to correct damaged hair.

3. Castor Oil
Omega 9 fatty acids found in castor oil, act as a great moisturizer, thereby helping to prevent scalp dryness. Using castor oil on a regular basis is the simplest way to ensure regrowth of hair. Those complaining about thinning of hair can use castor oil, as it assists to thicken hair.

4. Almond Oil
Hair nourishment to prevent hair loss can be safely achieved with almond oil. To strengthen and revitalize hair growth, one can certainly rely on almond oil. A daily massage with this oil is the key to induce hair growth. Read more on almond oil for hair.

5. Rosemary Oil
Rosemary oil is great for stimulating hair follicles for hair growth, preventing hair loss and greying, preventing dandruff, strengthening hair, and boosting shine.

6. Safflower Oil
Safflower oil protects hair, nourishes hair follicles, moisturizes, and stimulates blood circulation to promote hair growth and thickness. And it is extremely beneficial for natural as well as dry chemically treated hair.

7. Sweet Almond Oil
Sweet almond oil works great as a “sealant.” This means that it “locks-in” moisture. Sweet almond oil also nourishes hair, smoothes hair cuticles to control shedding, promotes hair growth and thickness, prevents hair loss, and boosts shine.

8. Peppermint Oil
Helps to stimulate blood flow to the root of the hair. This helps the hair to receive proper nourishment and to grow correctly. It is a great shampoo for hair that is growing slow or hair that is thinning. Peppermint makes the scalp tingle and this is what stimulates the blood flow to the hair. This stimulation can help with hair loss and thinning hair in women and men.

9. Tea Tree Oil:
Tea tree oil works extremely good for those that suffer from scalp psoriasis and scalp dandruff.

10. Rosemary Essential Oil
Works great for dry hair and dandruff as well as itchy scalp! Rosemary is one of the essential oils for dry scalp and thin hair.


  1. What about argan oil? I've used most of these but argan oil was the only one that actually worked at getting rid of my hair loss and making my hair stronger and thicker. :) My favorite argan oil is from this brand called Pro Naturals (ordered it online from "beyas") because it's very light and has a really nice, subtle smell. Recommend it a lot!

  8. my definitive must-have is pro naturals argan oil =D

  9. Benefits of oils are admirable! But can all these oils use at a single time?

  10. I love love peppermint oil but never tried it on my hair. I love the ideas and the explanation as to how each one helps. My hair has been dyed so much it used to be thick and full but now it is somewhat thin and medium thickness. I will have to try the Olive Coconut and the Rosemary. Do you have any tips?

  11. Hi, how can these oils be used or which oils would I actually mix together to actually achieve the strength, thickness and growth? I am 5 months post relaxer and I just cut off an inch probably two of my relaxed hair yesterday because it was frustrating me. My hair is always covered during the week because I am a married muslim woman, I have to be covered but at home I do give my hair air and I must admit, I sleep on a cotton pillowcase but I do have the bonnet and a silk scarf. My hair is very dry, please give me details on how to mix these oils into my regimen or whether I can mix them altogether and use them as a daily spritz? Thanks

    1. Elize,

      My favorite oils to mix together are coconut oil, castor oil and peppermint oil. You can add these to an applicator bottle and use it daily, as a hot oil treatment, or after a wash. Also, olive oil is a great oil to help seal in moisture to your hair.
