Ok, so it’s summer time, and most people see more growth during the summer. Why? Because everybody is out and doing something that has their blood circulation up. Blood circulation is essential for hair growth because it carries all the nutrients throughout your body. So how can we maximize and utilize this extra boost to help our hair growth? By using natural remedies to kick start hair growth. Keep in mind everyone’s hair grows at a different rate, but the remedies listed below can help your scalp squeeze out healthier stronger hair faster. Or depending on the person a wee bit faster.
Remedy #1: Emu Oil
If you go to the ingredients page you’ll find the nutritional rundown of Emu Oil listed. We don’t use Emu Oil in our products, but Emu Oil is very good for your scalp. If you don’t have a problem with using animal by products, this oil may be an option for you. Just apply it to your scalp once a day before you sleep and massage it into your scalp. My advice is to was your hair every 7 days when using this method to avoid the risk of build up.
Remedy #2: Castor Oil
This is also listed on the ingredients page. Castor Oil can also be used for babies who have bald spots. Granted, if the balding is caused by a medical issue(s) speak to your pediatric doctor before trying to use Castor Oil to help the balding. Castor Oil is really thick so you don’t need a lot of it. Place some in your hand, be sure to coat the tips of your fingers, and massage it into your scalp once a day everyday. Again, I advise you to wash your hair every 7 days if you are using this method to avoid build up.
Remedy #3: Ginger Root and Rose Herbal Rinse
Both of these are listed on our ingredients page as well. Just take some rose petals and freshly sliced ginger root and steep them in boiling hot water. Allow this herbal mix to sit for at least 4 hours. Strain it, pour it into a spray bottle, and spritz your scalp with it at least once everyday. This remedy works to cleanse your scalp, increase blood circulation, and opens the pores on your scalp so it can absorb the nutrients of this rinse. You could pour this mixture over your head after every wash, but I feel that that’s a bit wasteful.
Remedy #4: Vinegar, Lavender, and Rosemary
All of these are listed on our ingredients page as well. Be sure to choose the vinegar that is best for your natural hair color. If you color your hair there is a chance the vinegar will strip your hair. Take some lavender and rosemary and add them to a glass jar with the vinegar of your choosing. Allow this herbal mix to sit for at least 2 weeks. Doing this will eliminate most of the vinegar smell and it will allow the vinegar to become fully infused with the nutrients of the herbs. Strain it, pour it into a spray bottle, and spritz your scalp with it at least once everyday. This remedy works to cleanse your scalp, increase blood circulation, and opens the pores on your scalp so it can absorb the nutrients of this infusion. You could dilute this mixture with water and pour it over your head after every wash, but I feel that that’s a bit wasteful.
I’ve tested all of these out on myself and I have gotten results. Some worked better for me than others, but I also work out on a regular basis and my diet is decent. If you work out and your diet isn’t lacking any nutrients, these remedies won’t yield the same results for you as they would for someone who’s fitness and/or diet are lacking. Before taking supplements, you should always evaluate your diet and lifestyle to see if you can pin point the problem. Taking supplements can do more damage than simply trying a few natural remedies. So go natural before you go artificial.
