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.

When I saw my neice’s hair I asked her what she was using . She gave me this website address and I checked out the reviews. I couldn’t believe what everyone was saying and what I was seeing. I have tried a lot of hair products and spent a whole lotta money on oils, shampoos and conditioners that are supposed to make your hair grow; no matter what age (I’m 60) and have only seen little results. I just want my hair to grow back around the edges and get thick and long. I’m really hoping this product works. It is due to arrive today (5/8/21). I am also taking hair vitamins, so you know I’m expecting great results! And since I like to give new products an opportunity to work, I purchased 6 bottles upfront. LOL I’ll leave another comment after 30 days. ;-)


I have bought been told and used many things before with no real results…Until after using this product for about 1 month (STOP “wait hold up”) to my surprise I notice that my hair FELT different. I now look in the mirror EVERYDAY!!
My edges had become thin and this has made them much fuller to my amazement. Certain by this I have recommended your 10 in 1 to several different co-workers whom has since bought their own. I have my household family members using the product as well. I’m excited for everybody and can’t wait to see their results. I apply oil every night. My edges are full, new growth throughout my head and it keeps my ends soft and smooth. Nice!!
