Hair growth is one of the most discussed subjects of hair care and it is no secret that every woman dreams of having healthier, thicker hair! There is no denying that nature has been a source of beauty solutions since the beginning of time. If you love natural stuff and enjoy concocting a natural hair growth treatment every once in a while, plants are a natural way to treat a variety of ailments from an uneven complexion to a dry scalp.
Plants can also aid in your hair growth hair goals! Take a look at this list of six amazing plants you can use for your hair growth treatments.
1. Aloe Vera
Widely known for its amazing ability to aid hair growth, treat dandruff and keep scalp properly moisturized and balanced, aloe vera is one of those versatile plants that you can use with no worries! The enzymes in aloe vera dissolve dead skin cells and excess sebum which can clog hair follicles and aloe gel is an excellent moisturiser due to its super hydrating properties and helps to restore the pH balance of the scalp which helps to encourage growth. Aloe also contains salicylic acid, an anti-inflammatory and mild antibiotic. For these reasons, aloe vera is one of the best carriers for other herbal remedies that promote hair growth.
Rosemary is vitamin-rich, anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant, and by far one of the most popular and effective herbs for scalp health and hair growth. This great-smelling plant can slow down premature hair loss and help you have the thick, long hair of your dreams. It stimulates roots, soothes an irritated scalp, conditions and moisturises your hair. Often used as an oil, either combined with olive oil or by itself, it can help with circulation to aid in growth. It has the added bonus of stopping premature greying too.
3. Gingko Biloba
Besides being one of the most praised anti-ageing herbs, Ginko can be used as a natural hair growth treatment too This plant is known to stimulate blood flow and improve circulation. It can help with increasing the blood flow follicles need to encourage new growth at the root level, while helping your tissues get all the oxygen they need to function properly thus speeding up your metabolism and boosting your immunity and hair growth. It can also be taken as a supplement and is especially useful for people suffering from deficiencies that affect the follicle.
Peppermint is another plant that offers healing to the scalp to help with growth. It not only moisturizes and soothes an irritated scalp but also stimulates hair follicles. A healthy scalp is the bedrock of hair growth so don’t underestimate herbs that work solely to heal the scalp as a means of growth. It is often used as an oil applied directly to the scalp, but may also be consumed as a tea. The moisturizing oil contained in peppermint leaves is anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. When applied to the scalp, peppermint oil can help to heal chemical, microbial, or environmental damage while also stimulating growth by boosting circulation and stimulating hair follicles.
Mineral-rich horsetail is a hugely popular natural solution for promoting hair growth and a healthy scalp. It works by stimulating blood vessels that supply oxygen to hair follicles. It is known to improve the strength of hair, as well as bones, thanks to the ingredient silica. It also helps to make hair less brittle to retain hair which is great for hair loss. It can be taken as a supplement or used in a product that already has it as an ingredient. Also, it contains quercetin, a flavonoid with anti-allergy and anti-viral capabilities. Although it is one of the lesser known plants, it is actually one of the most widely used in hair products.
This popular plant has antibacterial properties so it will leave the scalp free of anything getting in the way of generating growth. Lavender oil stimulates circulation in the scalp, strengthens new hair growth, and helps to balance the natural oil production of the scalp, making it a popular choice for people of all skin types. If your scalp has a lot of parasites, fungus, or other less than desirable things, it will be almost impossible for growth to take place. As an added bonus, lavender oil is also a natural insect repellant which can ward off disease-carrying parasites like fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and head lice.
