5 Hair Growth Ingredients that Actually WORK.

But first, the cause of hair loss

The reason for a lack of hair growth/hair loss can occur for a variety of reasons, with the 3 most common being hormonal changes, traction alopecia (primarily for weave & wig wear), and stress. If you're struggling with a lack of growth, don't worry it's extremely common. In 2016, a study of almost 6,000 African American women by Boston University's Slone Epidemiology Center found that almost 48% of respondents had suffered hair loss on the crown or the top of the head. 


If you're like most people, chances are you've probably already tried hair growth products and remedies before. It's likely that those products worked to some extent. However, chances are you're not actually getting the best hair growth results possible. This is because while their are many oils that are great for the hair overall their are a select few that stand wayyy above the rest when it comes to actually growing your hair. Below we’ve listed the 5 BEST organic oils that have actually been proven by both science and the hair care community to drastically accelerate hair growth!

#1 Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint oil, as some might already know, is one of the most potent all-natural hair growth ingredients on the market. Go ahead, Google it: What you'll find is article after article about how the oil can help with shedding, breakage, and regrowth. Peppermint essential oil has multiple studies that back up it's miracle claims as a hair growth elixir. A 2014 study by the The Korean Society of Toxicology found that peppermint oil was more effective than even Rogaine, a potent but toxic chemical solution for hair loss. Link

#2 Rosemary Essential Oil

If you want to improve both hair thickness and accelerate hair growth, rosemary essential oil is a great choice thanks to its ability to improve cellular generation. According to a 2015 study, rosemary essential oil performed even better than rogaine (minoxidil), a chemical based hair growth treatment, but with less scalp itching, and side effects. Link

#3 Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil recently gained attention for stimulating hair growth. A 2016 study found that lavender oil applied to animals made them grow significantly more hair than their non oiled up counterparts. Per these studies, lavender oil has been proven to help with issues like pattern baldness and alopecia.

#4 Cold Pressed Castor Oil

Castor Oil is rich in omega-6 fatty acids that help accelerate hair growth, among many other benefits. Castor oil, in short, contains natural compounds that promote hair growth and contains Ricinoleic acid, an essential amino acid required by the body. While their aren't many scientific studies on the efficacy of castor oil for hair growth it is widely popular in the haircare community.

#5 Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin E oil is amazing for hair growth due to it's ability to limit hair follicle stress. A 2010 study by University of Sains Malaysia showed that after eight months of Vitamin E oil supplementation their was a 34.5% increased hair count in 38 patients with hair loss, compared to a 0.1% decrease with the placebo group.

Like many, I’ve used several different products hoping for results. Several dermatology visits, invested in hair scalp analysis, and hair growth pills. The discovery of a quarter size area hair loss wasn’t alarming until I noticed the area grew larger and larger. I was told it was Alopecia, perhaps hereditary and there was no chance the hair loss would reverse. With all due respect I believed the “experts,” for approximately 5 years. Seeing your products on Social Media, my first thought “here is another hair growth miracle product, I’m not buying it!” Fast forward, after purchasing the 10 in 1 oil I began using it three days a week. As I continued to read “how to use!” I noticed for faster results it’s recommended to use the oil daily. To my surprise, I see aggressive hair growth results. I did not take before photos; imagine a completely bald scalp about the size of the diameter of a small bowl to significant hair fuzz. I’m excited to see results six month March results. Thank you for your vision to package and produce hair growth affordable products.

After I got out of the hospital last November, post covid, I was losing hair in large clumps, every day! I just sat & cried. Then I started looking for something to help me get it restarted. I found this 10 in 1 oil & have never looked back! It’s amazing, smells so good, and makes my now FAST GROWING HAIR feel so good!
I’ve got new ‘baby hairs’ all over my head & I LOVE IT!
