Which hair treatment is best for you?
As the colder months approach us, everyone’s hair needs a little TLC. With so many products on the market, it’s hard to know which ones will do your hair good. Using the wrong produce can do your mane an injustice – for example, using an anti-grease remedy on thin hair can actually make your hair get greasy more quickly. Whether your locks are prone to frizz, grease or dandruff, it’s vital to get the right product for your hair – keeping it smooth, sleek and gorgeous in the winter months.
If you’re prone to itching and irritation, it’s especially important for you to pick the right hair treatment. Using a product rich in coconut oil is known to be helpful for skin conditions such as eczema and is a wonderful natural emollient for dry skin. Other herbal oils such as evening primrose oil and sweet almond oil are thought reduce inflammation, ease itching, soothe, calm and nourish the scalp.
Whether your hair has been damaged by the sun, excessive use of hair straighteners and dryers, or if it’s just naturally a bit dry – it needs extra special attention to get it back to a luscious and healthy ‘do. Natural herbs, oils and butters deliver nourishment to the hair shaft, seal in moisture and repair dry and damaged sections of the hair. Using a treatment rich in these natural ingredients will quickly restore your hairs natural shine, without the need for harsh and unnatural products.
For hair that refuses to grow, using nourishing and rejuvenating oils on your hair is essential. Avocado and sweet almond oil are thought to be extra beneficial for thinning hair, whilst virgin coconut oil is a supposed genius at strengthening your tresses, stopping breaks and splits. It might also be a good idea to look out for stimulator lotions with rosemary in them – a stimulating herb thought to boost circulation to the scalp and promote quick hair growth.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
