Hair oils can help contribute to healthier, shinier, stronger hair. When you look after your scalp and hair by treating it to nourishing and hydrating products, it promotes the successful regrowth of more resilient strands.

Looking for a solution to thinning hair or hair loss? No topical hair product can help make your hair grow, but it can certainly help with maintaining the overall health of your hair and scalp. There are many different products out there for thin hair and hair loss including luxurious hair oil. It is the essential oils that are blended within these products that help promote healthier hair. Here, we’ll be sharing the main essential oils that help with hair growth, as well as the very best hair oils to try.

The Best Oils For Your Hair

If you’re curious about which oils can be made into an at-home remedy to promote a healthy scalp and encourage hair growth, the following essential oils are worth stocking up on.

 1. Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree oil is a potent, powerful and natural product that has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. You can mix a few drops of tea tree oil with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, or almond oil and apply the mixture directly to your hair as a masque or mix 5-10 drops of tea tree oil into your regular shampoo.

2. Peppermint Oil

Peppermint oil, when applied to the scalp stimulates the hair follicles with a cold, tingling sensation which in turn increases circulation. To apply, mix 2-3 drops of peppermint oil into a carrier oil such as coconut oil and massage the mixture into your scalp. Leave the mixture sitting on your scalp for 5-10 minutes before shampooing and conditioning as normal.

 3. Lavender Oil

Lavender oil is made up of antimicrobial and antibacterial properties which can help improve the overall health of your scalp. Lavender oil is also known to help reduce stress and anxiety which can be a determining factor when it comes to hair loss and hair thinning. Mix 3-4 tablespoons of lavender oil into coconut oil and apply it your scalp. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes before rinsing with shampoo.
