If you’re frustrated at the rate in which your hair is growing, you’ll be happy to know that there are natural hair products that promote hair growth. These remedies are all safe, gentle and effective when used consistently.
Castor oil, and especially the more nutrient dense unrefined Jamaican black castor oil, is wonderful for stimulating hair growth. It’s very rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E, and is especially effective for those who have suffered from hair loss. Castor oil comes from the castor bean which is native to Eastern Africa and India.
Jojoba oil has been used for hundreds of years by Native Americans. Jojoba oil is very similar to the natural oils that your scalp produces and can be applied directly to your scalp to promote hair growth.
Aloe vera will open pores on the scalp that perhaps are blocked by residue and will allow the hair follicles to grow, balances the pH balance of the scalp and also activates new growth by increasing blood circulation to the scalp.
Peppermint, lavender and rosemary oil all stimulate hair growth. They should be diluted before use in water or conditioner and should be massaged into the scalp.
These natural products promote hair growth and can all be found in your local health food store. When trying to grow your hair long, remember that you always need to keep it moist. When your hair dries out, it becomes dull, brittle and prone to breakage, which is not what you want! Too many of us naturals don’t believe that it hair is growing at all when really, it’s just difficult to notice the new growth because we don’t realize that our hair is breaking off at the ends. Do your best to prevent this!
