Is it true that essential oils have been clinically shown to stimulate hair growth? Yes, it’s true! This 1998 study shows how a mixture of jojoba and essential oils for hair growth were used to stimulate new hair growth in 44% of patients with alopecia areata. This natural hair growth treatment worked for men and women! Not only was this study a huge success – it also shows us a scientifically proven way for women experiencing hair loss to naturally regrow hair! I’m going to show you how to make the same essential oil infused recipe used in this study to help you regrow your hair.
The stress of hair loss triggers the same fight/flight survival response that’s designed to save your life from imminent danger. Whether you’re facing a wild animal or worried about hair loss, your body responds to the perceived threat by flooding your bloodstream with adrenaline and cortisol. These stress hormones change your entire physiology by initiating a biochemical chain reaction that prepares your body to defend and survive. Your breathing changes and blood is diverted away from the internal organs to feed your peripheral muscles.¹
The survival response is great for getting you out of a dicey situation, but if you’re constantly exposed to these potent survival hormones your health and your hair will deteriorate.This recipe uses the exact same ingredients in the study mentioned above. Hopefully by using these essential oils for hair growth you will see the hair growth just like the patients in this study!
ProTip: Add these essential oils to your shampoo and conditioner for extra hair growth stimulation!
Once you combine your essential oils for hair growth, lovingly apply the mixture to your scalp. Dip your fingertips into the oil mixture and massage the oil into your scalp using this scalp massage method. Do whatever feels good here. I’ve found I like to grab a fistful of hair and gently tug once the oil has been evenly distributed.
Once you have applied the mixture over your entire scalp, let the oils soak in for at least 20 minutes. This is a good time to find something inspirational to read, take deep belly breaths, strut your stuff around the house, do whatever makes you feel vibrant. I usually plan the essential oils for hair growth treatment on the same day I intend to wash my hair with my hair growth shampoo – but you can also leave the treatment in over night for deep penetrating moisture. If your scalp could talk, it would say “yes, please and thank you!”
Just a word of caution… I know you know, but I gotta say it; oil and clothing don’t mix. (Why am I always re-learning this?) Choose a ‘special’ set of clothing for your oil treatments, one that you don’t mind staining with grease. Unless you know you’re ridiculously careful, in which case, wear a prom dress, I trust you completely.
