Everyone has a moment in their life when they just wish their hair would grow longer overnight. Certain haircare oils may help you achieve your dream length in less time.
Everyone has a moment in their life when they just wish their hair would grow longer overnight, whether it’s after a bad haircut or a longstanding desire to flip a perfect mane. Numerous hair-growth products contain gimmicky ingredients, but one of the best ways to get long locks faster is by using hair oils.
How do oils stimulate hair growth?
While all botanical oils have different characteristics, many of the most widely used haircare oils share the ability to encourage hair growth. Such oils contain a ton of fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that help nourish and balance your scalp.
My hair’s oily. Can I use haircare oils?
Every scalp can benefit from the pH- and moisture-balancing properties of oils. But you probably want to use them in the evening if you’re concerned about your scalp looking greasy during the day. Keep in mind that a dehydrated scalp sometimes causes overproduction of sebum, so an oil can definitely help.
Another thing to try is just using oils where your hair tends to look less nourished or dry - for most people, this is the ends of their hair.
Which oils will help my hair grow?
Argan oil is incredibly beneficial to the hair. This oil's high vitamin E and omega fatty acid content nourishes the scalp, speeding up hair growth. You can find argan oil in all Moroccanoil products, such as Moroccanoil Dry Scalp Treatment.
Almond oil contains vitamins A, B, and E, and is incredibly soothing for the scalp. Almond oil is also rich in magnesium, which can assist in hair growth. You can find almond oil in Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil, a world-famous luxury treat.
Rosemary oil isn’t as hydrating as the other oils listed, but it's said to increase circulation to the scalp. This oil also has natural antibacterial properties to help correct scalp conditions. You can find rosemary oil in Sachajuan Scalp Shampoo.
Macadamia oil is incredibly thick, hydrating, and nourishing for the most irritated scalps. Containing oleic and linoleic acids, this oil prevents hair loss and boosts the strength of the hair. You can find macadamia oil in O&M Hydrate and Conquer Shampoo.
Coconut oil contains protective, moisturising lauric acid as well as vitamin E, vitamin K, and iron. Using coconut oil regularly has been shown to increase blood flow to the scalp. Coconut oil can be found in Pureology Curl Complete Style Infusion Hair Care.
