Many people with short hair wish for quicker hair growth and are willing to try anything to achieve this. Instead of risking a sketchy or expensive method, try this homemade serum, which will help you accelerate hair growth. Start your hair care routines with this mixture and you’ll soon notice the pleasant results!
Do you want your hair to be longer, shinier, and healthier? On average, people lose 80 to 100 hairs a day, which is practically unnoticeable and natural in the short-term but can quickly turn into an obstacle when trying to grow back your hair. Luckily, there are natural alternatives to slow down hair loss and accelerate hair growth.
This homemade serum is very easy to make, with three ingredients carefully selected for their natural properties and positive impacts on your hair:
- Coconut oil
- Castor oil
- Rosemary oil
Coconut oil has a long and straight structure when you look at its molecules. This is what allows this oil to be easily absorbed into the hair shaft, a property that not many other oils have. In other words, it’ll help you deeply hydrate your scalp. The result is a positive impact on the reduction of protein loss in the hair.
Additionally, using coconut oil before washing your hair prevents damage risks caused by the hair's wetness, while the oil also helps to reduce friction and breakage when applied after washing your hair. You’ll find that many of the benefits of coconut oil are rooted in its many nutrients, vitamins, which include vitamins K and E, and antioxidants.
Castor oil presents many helpful properties when it comes to hair care. Not only does it provide essential nutrients to hair follicles in the roots of your hair, but it also reduces the possibilities of hair follicle inflammation. In addition to this, it's been proven that this oil provides antimicrobial properties and boosts the hair's shine and flexibility.
Due to its high concentration of vitamins and essential fatty acids, it strengthens and protects the hair follicles, stimulating growth and slowing down hair loss. While you should avoid castor oil if you have dandruff, as it can worsen your condition, it’s a very helpful ally when fighting against thinness, excessive shedding, and damaged edges.
Rosemary oil is very well known for its boosting properties when it comes to circulation and nerve growth, as well as its anti-inflammatory abilities. By improving the blood circulation in the scalp and the hair bulbs, this oil triggers hair growth and reduces the risks of death of hair follicles, which in turn prevents hair loss, premature graying, and dry scalp.
An additional advantage of rosemary oil is its nourishing properties. You’ll realize how, after using this oil, your hair will have received extra nutrients that will have boosted its growth. The results will be shinier hair that has lower risks of breaking.
Once you know what will go into the serum, the process to make it is very simple and doesn’t take more than a few minutes. The only thing you need to do is mix 15 drops of each essential oil in a dropper. Before going to bed, place a few drops on your scalp, massaging in a circular motion to help spread the oil and activate circulation. You can apply some on the tips of your hair as well, if it has a dry complexion.
After distributing your homemade natural serum on your hair scalp and, if you wanted, on your hair ends, cover your head with a shower cap to preserve the heat and protect your pillow. In the following morning, rinse your hair with warm water and wash it with your usual shampoo. It's advisable to apply this mixture twice a week in order to keep your hair strong, long, shiny, and healthy!
