Hair loss is a problem that is very common and is often difficult to emotionally cope with. There are a lot of reasons that we lose hair, ranging from a bad diet to stress. However, at the root of it, hair fall happens because the scalp is deprived of essential nutrients and stimulation. A method that is proving to help regrowth of hair is using essential oils. Essential oils are highly potent and aid can increase hair growth by stimulating the scalp and hair follicles. Essential oils also have a wide range of calming effects due to their pure scent, further relaxing your mood when you practice self care.

Radhika Iyer, Founder of Beauty by Anahata, shares four essential oils that are extremely beneficial for hair growth.

Please keep in mind that essential oils should always be used after being diluted with a carrier oil, such as coconut or castor oil.

​Rosemary oil

Rosemary essential oil promotes hair growth by dilatation (expansion) of blood vessels and cell multiplication. It oxygenates the scalp and facilitates nutrient distribution. It’s well-known for thickening hair, which aids in hair regrowth. Apply 5-6 drops of rosemary essential oil to your scalp with coconut oil. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing with a natural shampoo.

​Lemongrass oil

Lemongrass essential oil is effective against dandruff. Dandruff is one of the most common causes of hair loss. Lemongrass not only has a soothing scent, but it also helps to get rid of a dry scalp. 3-4 drops lemongrass essential oil in your regular shampoo or conditioner (preferably natural or organic products) and use on a regular basis.

​Bergamot oil

Bergamot essential oil has antimicrobial properties and promotes a healthy scalp. Its anti-inflammatory properties keep the scalp cool, lowering the risk of painful inflammations such as boils or excessive sweating. Inflammation also contributes to hair loss, which bergamot can help with. Apply 3-4 drops of Bergamot oil mixed with coconut oil to your scalp. Following that, wash your hair.

​Cedar wood oil

Your go-to oil for preventing future hair loss is cedar wood! This essential oil balances the oil glands in the scalp, creating a healthy environment for hair-friendly bacteria to thrive. It also has anti-fungal properties, which aid in the prevention of dandruff and a dry, flaky scalp. This oil improves the health of your scalp, allowing your hair to regrow in a safe and nurturing environment. Apply 3 drops of cedarwood essential oil to the scalp after mixing it with coconut or castor oil.

Essential oils are excellent for stimulating scalp growth, but please use them with caution. Dilute the essential oil properly with the carrier oil, and always perform a patch test (apply to one portion first) to check for any type of reaction. I wish you beautiful hair and lots of energy.
