3 Springtime Oils for Healthy Hair! The Best Oil for Hair Growth and Thickness

With spring in the air and summer on its way, who wouldn’t love a full head of healthy locks? If you’re like us, the hustle and bustle of everyday just makes throwing our hair up in a bun, or utilizing the good ole ‘wash and go’ technique, just so time efficient! Between our busy schedules and multi-step skin care routines, practicing hair care usually takes a back seat. It is only in the warmer months that we are inspired to wear our hair down more often. To make sure your hair is ready for its closeup - read on for our favorite hair care oils and a DIY hair mask recipe for each one!


#1 Tea Tree Oil
 

Hair care starts at the root because a healthy scalp = healthy hair, and our favorite oil for scalp health is tea tree oil! Dandruff, lice, and oiliness don’t stand a chance against this potent essential oil. One of Tea Tree’s most prominent benefits for hair is its ability to unclog hair follicles and nourish our roots to enable healthy hair growth. Tea Tree is also a natural lice treatment and it’s antifungal and antibacterial properties help combat the fungus that causes dandruff. If your hair has been feeling extra itchy lately or just needs a refreshing cleanse, tea tree oil is your new go to!

Tea Tree Hair Loss Elixir

If you’ve been noticing the clumps of hair falling out in the shower are getting larger, use this simple DIY hair treatment to stop hair loss in its tracks! Mix all the ingredients below and apply to scalp. Keep overnight and rinse off with herbal or organic shampoo. Repeat treatment 2-3 times a week.

Ingredients:

    • 1-2 TBSP Coconut Oil
    • 3 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
    • 2 drops Rosemary Essential Oil

#2 Castor Oil
 

This next oil needs no introduction as it has quickly become one of the most recognizable oils for hair health and growth on the market! (and rightly so!). The high content of rincinoleic acid in castor oil helps accelerate blood circulation to the scalp, promoting healthy hair growth. Castor oil also replenishes the scalp’s natural oils, nourishes the hair follicles to help rid scalp dryness and irritation, and thickens hair.

Castor Oil Hair Strengthening Mask

This mask helps protect, strengthen, and repair damaged hair and scalp, and helps promote thicker, healthier hair growth. Mix ingredients below together in a small bowl. Apply mask to roots and strands of hair, massage mixture into scalp with fingertips. Put on a shower cap, leave for two hours, and wash off with warm water and gentle shampoo. Repeat treatment once a week.

Ingredients:

  • 1 TBSP castor oil
  • 1 TBSP avocado oil
  • 1 TBSP olive oil


#3 Argan Oil 

One of our favorite oils for this season is none other than the age-old beauty superstar herself: Argan Oil! More likely than not, you’ve probably heard of this oil and it was probably the first oil you were introduced to. Argan oil is overwhelmingly beneficial for repairing, moisturizing, and managing unruly hair. Its unique composition of vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids enables it to repair damage caused by color and heating tools, tames friziness, and moisturizes dry hair and scalp.

Argan Deep Hair Conditioner

Hair is kept moisturized by our scalp oils, and dryness/breakage occurs when there isn’t enough sebum being produced on the scalp. Argan oil contains Vitamin A, which helps moisturize hair by supporting healthy sebum production in your scalp.

Due to its versatile nature, there are many ways to use argan oil, but masking is definitely one of the best ways to soak up all the argan goodness! To condition and repair dry, brittle hair, combine ingredients below into a bowl. Apply to scalp and strands. Keep it overnight and rinse off with a mild shampoo. Repeat 2-3 times a week.

Ingredients

  • 1 TBSP Argan Oil
  • 1 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 3 drops Lavender Essential Oil
