8 Essential Oils That Will Regrow Thinning Hair — and How to Use Them

A confidence boost in a bottle!

The winter weather doesn’t do our hair any favors. It can dry out our strands and scalp and cause hair to fall out. Not to mention that as we get older, we often see more hair in the drain and find our locks thinning. Whether it’s seasonal or hormonal, hair loss can all take its toll on our confidence. But we’re here to tell you that nature might be your best source of hair-growth-promoting ingredients — in the form of the best essential oils for hair loss!

Many of the beauty products we already use contain hair-enhancing essential oils, so why not turn right to the source? All you have to do to get the same benefits is dilute two or three drops of your EO of choice (or a combination of them!) in one to three tablespoons of a carrier oil like coconut or avocado oil (One to try: Viva Naturals Sweet Almond Oil — Buy on Amazon, $12.62) . Always be sure to do a test patch on your skin first for adverse reactions! Apply your oil mixture to your hair from root to tip, focusing on your scalp. Massage the scalp for ten minutes and allow the oil to sit for at least 15 minutes before washing normally. If your hair is very dry and brittle, you can also opt for a more deep conditioning treatment and can leave the oil in your hair overnight, washing in the morning.
