Top 5 Scientifically Proven Oil for Effective Hair Growth

Having a longer hair is a pride to most women and men now fancy longer hair and beards too.

But, before talking about the top 5 scientifically proven oil for hair growth and maintenance, there is need to be aware of a significant factor that leads to healthy hair growth.


And that is –  Blood Circulation beneath the skin (Scalp)

When the scalp is massaged using any of the oils that will be mentioned below, blood circulation increases. And these oils also reduce inflammation of the skin (Scalp) which may lead to hair loss, hair breakage and other hair problems.

1. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which provides a soothing feeling when applied in the scalp. It is an ancient oil used for centuries to get rid of hair problems as a result of inflammation of the scalp, infections (dandruff, eczema) because of its richness of anti-inflammatory agents. Coconut oil contains the needed fatty acid for hair growth which is lauric acid
It is one of the most important oil used by several cosmetics and hair product manufacturers due to the great moisturising effect.

2. Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is highly rich in antioxidants, vitamin A and E, essential fatty acids, and biotin which are all responsible for healthy hair growth. 

Massaging avocado oil onto your scalp will help stimulate blood circulation, and cleanse the hair follicles of any clogged particle or debris to facilitate healthy hair growth and further prevent hair loss. 

It helps to repair, strengthen and moisturise the scalp.

3. Olive Oil

Olive oil is rich in vitamin E which is very important for hair growth. It helps revitalize the scalp, nourishes the hair roots and promotes the growth of hair strands. Olive oil contains emollients such as oleic acid, palmitic acid, and squalene which are responsible for adding shine, thickness and further softening the hair strands.

 It is a lightweight oil which makes it easy to penetrate the skin easily to stimulate blood flows without leaving any greasy form on the hair or scalp.

4.  Castor Oil

This is a very popular oil to the natural beauty product manufacturers. Castor oil contains ricinoleic acid which is a type of fatty acid to combat skin inflammations and fungal/bacterial diseases. 

Due to its antibacterial properties, it  helps to get rid of dandruff and other scalp issues. It is also highly effective at moisturising, softening, nourishing and thickening the hair.

Castor oil is mostly advised to be mixed with other lightweight oil such as coconut oil due to its heavy property which leaves greasy form on the hair and scalp after application.

5. Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is also another known oil for hair growth stimulation. It easily removes any clogged debris from the hair follicles on the scalp allowing for proper hair growth through the freed follicles. 

Jojoba oil is also considered an effective oil in moisturising the hair strands, protection from external damage, and also nourishes them to promote healthy hair growth. It doesn’t harm the scalp or hair whatsoever.

The oils for effective hair growth are not limited to these five alone but are mostly the most populous and highly effective oil for promoting healthy nature of the scalp, hair strands and blood flow stimulation.
You can get a bottle of these oils from your closest store or online.
