Herbs come straight from nature. God created them for many medicinal purposes and one of those purposes is hair growth for those struggling in that area. The many ways you can combine these herbs with natural oils oils is innumerable. Many herbs (ex: henna, shikakai, amla, neem) and oils (ex: coconut, olive, grapeseed) can be mixed together to create herbal hair oil recipes that can lead to an increase in the rate of hair growth.
Herbal hair oils are staples in Indian Hair Care regimens and one thing to take note of is how long the Indian women grow their hair. Yes, some of it is genetics but one factor not to be overlooked is the presence of herbal oils in their hair routine.
I’ve tried many combinations of herbal hair oils. Some were DIY recipes and others I purchased were already mixed with various herbs. The one thing that each of these oils had in common was their ability to help increase the rate of hair growth.

Here are the recipes:

Herbal Hair Oil Recipe #3

Want A Cheap Non-DIY Herbal Hair Oil?
Although you’ve read this far, you may decide, “Nah I don’t want to create a DIY hair oil for hair growth. I just want to buy it already made on the cheap.” Cool.
One very affordable herbal hair oil that I purchased and really enjoyed using (as it helps calm my scalp when it’s itchy) is Gro-aut Hair Growth Oil. If you don’t want to create your own DIY hair growth oil, this one is rich in potent herbs.
Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Embilica Officinalis (Bringraj) Herb, Eclipta Alba (Amla) Herb, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Oil, Lavandula Officinalis (Lavender) Oil, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM sulfur), Biotin.
If you’ve been following this blog at least since the beginning of 2018, you may notice a recurring theme that I keep reinforcing….Consistency.
As with any other hair product, practice or routine, the key to seeing results is consistency. Whichever herbal hair oil recipe you choose to use, do so with consistency and you’ll see results.
It may seem like using 3-4 herbal hair oil recipes is not consistent but in the case of the recipes just shared, you don’t use them all at once or one oil blend one day and then another the next. On the contrary, the most effective way to use a variethy of oil mixes is to use one particular oil mix every 2-3 days for about 2 or 3 months before rotating to the next.
