Hair Growth Oils: My top 3 picks!

Hello Natural beauties!  As many of you know, when it comes to Natural Oils, there is no shortage of oils to choose from.  There are so many wonderful oils with needful properties that it can be difficult to settle on a few staples, because they all have something we want! Also scientific research has shown that certain oils in particular are superior when it comes to scalp and hair health.  Whether your primary goal is to have a healthy scalp, nourished strands, or to stimulate more growth, you can rest assure there’s a natural oil out there that can help you achieve your goal!  During my healthy hair journey I have used a LOT of oils, and one day I will take time to blog about the benefits of each, But today I want to share a few of my front runners!

Extra Virgin Olive oil
I personally use this oil every single day! One of the best advantages of using this oil is it acts as an antioxidant in that it helps cure hair loss. Olive oil actually fights off harmful hormones that cause hair loss.  Olive oil is also an excellent hair conditioner, and perfect for hot oil treatments. It also seals in moisture well. I also use Olive oil to add shine to my hair; hands down it is the only oil that has been able to give my hair the shine I want.

Vatika Oil   
Vatika Oil is Coconut oil that has been infused with Lemon, Amla, Henna, and 5 other essential herbs! Vatika has been coined by some as coconut oil on steroids! I can understand why some would say that. The benefits of Henna coats and protects the strands, Amla strengthens the roots of your hair, and maintains the color, while the lemon acts as an astringent for your scalp. I often massage my scalp with this oil because it helps with “itchy scalp” and dandruff that you can experience, especially when wearing long term protective styles.  I also pre-poo with Vatika oil,  the coconut oil allows for a deeper penetration into the hair shaft carrying with it the other 8 herbs that infused into its base!  I absolutely love this oil and it remains as my staple.

Sesa Oil
This oil is a powerful weapon for stimulating hair growth and it really nourishes your hair at the same time.  Sesa oil contains over 20 Ayurvedic herbs! The first ingredient is Bhringraj, an herb that derives from an Eclipta Alba plant used in Ayurvedic medicines, and especially for men experiencing male pattern baldness. (Now, that is what really got my attention). I use this to massage my scalp, and to nourish my hair, it helps to protect my hair and aids in length retention. You can also use it as a hot oil treatment... I love how soft my hair feels after treating it with Sesa oil!

So, these are my top three picks, what are your favorite healthy hair oils?

My 3 go to oils for a few months have been: African Royale Hot Six Oil, BB Growth Oil, (both by Bronner Brothers) and my always faithful EVCO! The Hot six and Growth oil are both an easy way to get a group of Great oils, without breaking the bank with the one by one purchases! :)
I absolutely love both!

Great post.. my favourites are coconut oil & castor oil since i use them really often. doesn't the vatika oil mix contain mineral oil? x

Chan said...

Hi Yolandass thanks for your response! Great choice in oils! No Vatika does not contain mineral oil. The one have pictures is coconut oil, Amla, Lemon, Henna and other natural oils. I did notice another Vatkia oil that they had mixed with olive oil? It's new..when I read the label I did see mineral oil in it. If you do decide to try it..use the one I have pictured!

Hi....I hate to sound stupid, but i'm transitioning to natural hair i saw your top three oil picks and i was wondering if the extra virgin olive oil is for the hair or the oil you cook with and use as dressing?
