How To Make An All Natural Hair Growth Oil For Hair Loss

Creating a natural hair loss treatment at home.

Before and after of my crown

I Refused To Accept Hair Loss

I suffered from hereditary alopecia and unlike many women in my family I refused to go down without a fight. My aunt’s dermatologist told her that she could take scalp injections, but they were not guaranteed to work. He also suggested that she simply relax and go with the flow. Can you imagine having your supposedly skilled and trained physician tell you that there was no help for your condition and you will have to live the rest of your life bald? Most hair issues are maternal; and sure enough when I turned 35 my hair started to come out just like it had other women on the maternal side of my family.  At first I felt defeated. I started wearing wigs and weaves trying to cover up the fact that my crown and hairline were quickly disappearing. A bit discouraged and reluctant to try chemical treatments I began researching various natural alternatives to treat hair loss.

After three years of research and lots of trial and error I finally found the perfect combination of oils and herbs to create my own hair growth oil. If you are experiencing thinning, bald spots or excessive shedding I am about to show you how to make an oil that will be great for stimulating your scalp, restoring your scalp’s PH balance, fighting dandruff, thickening your hair and promoting growth.

Why Are These Ingredients Needed?

Two of the main reasons for hair loss is the production of DHT  (DiHydro Testosterone) in the body or the loss of blood circulation to the hair follicle. DHT is a hormone that is produced by a particular enzyme (called 5Aplpha) in the body along with testosterone. This hormone attaches itself to the follicle and causing shrinkage which in turn leads to hair fall. On the other hand if the hair follicle is not being "fed" through blood circulation it will also shrink and fall out.  The ingredients that I chose to combined stimulates the scalp as well as "blocks" the formation of DHT thus giving dormant and weak follicles nourishment.


How To Use Heat Infusion To Blend The Oils And Herbs

Heat infusion allows you to draw the medicinal properties out of the herbs and blends them with the oils. It takes 4-6 hours to complete this process and the temperature of your oil mixture should not exceed about 100 degrees. Using temperatures higher than that will destroy the medicinal properties of the herbs and oil. You will need a stainless steel pot or ceramic crock pot and a thermometer. Never use copper or aluminum materials when using heat to infuse your mixture.Make sure that you watch your mix carefully and stir it frequently. Never leave it unattended.

In your stainless steel or ceramic pot add in 4 oz of castor oil, 4 oz. of jojoba oil, 4 oz. of coconut oil, 4 oz. grape seed oil  and all of the dried herbs and green tea. DO NOT add in the Vitamin E Oil or Essential Oils, those will be added in after the oil has cooled and been strained. Heat 4-6 hours at 100 degrees stirring occasionally as its heating. Do not cover mix while it is heating. Heat it uncovered the entire time.

Once the oil has cooled completely you can then use a cheesecloth, a strainer (no aluminum or copper) or pantyhose to strain the pieces of herbs from the oil. Make sure the container you use to catch the oil is clean and large enough to hold at least 16 ounces. Once you have strained the oil, pour it into a clean empty bottle with a top. Even though you used 16 oz. of oil with this recipe once you finish heating and straining you will probably end up with out 10-12 ounces of oil. Make sure your container can hold more than 8 oz.

Finally add in 20 drops of each (Rosemary Oil, Peppermint Oil, Lavender Oil) and 1 tablespoon of Vitamin E. Give it a good shake and voila, your scalp is going to love you for it!

Make sure you wash your hair at least once a week. Apply the oil to your entire scalp and massage for 3-5 minutes at least 2-3 nights a week. For faster results use the oil every night at bed time. Botanically infused oils have helped me so much and I have been able to help other people with hair loss issues as well.

Hey Denise, right at this very moment I am making your hair oil and was wondering if it was ok to tweak it a little. I only had 2oz of Jojoba oil and substituted the other 2oz with Olive oil and will be adding a few drops of Tea Tree oil at the end. Hopefully this won't alter the results, otherwise I'll have to start all over again. Wish me good luck!
Thanks for sharing your recipes!

@Mira... herbal infusions have worked wonders for me over the last year. My hair is healthier and thicker than it has EVER been. I use my growth oil everyday on myself and both of my daughters.
