7 Best Hair Oils For Faster Hair Growth

by jomol on November 1, 2013 · 32 comments


Suffering from hair loss and alopecia? and you want natural treatments to tackle hair loss, then there’s good news, because there are some hair oils which can really fasten up hair growth, tackle hair fall, and improve the overall quality of the hair. Unfortunately, I cannot keep hair oils on my head, but I know that a lot of people who have beautiful and long hair use certain oils. If you are suffering from thinning of hair, scalp problems, dandruff, and other hair issues, do try these if every other remedy in the book has failed. Some people dismiss the “hair oil-hair growth” theory, but a lot of people who have had long and healthy hair by using hair oils say otherwise. So, here’s a list of the best hair oils that would aid in faster hair growth.

1. Castor Hair Oil:
Castor oil

Castor oil is rich in vitamin E, proteins, minerals. Its a very viscous oil and its hard to wash it off the hair, but that’s the only con. It works wonders on hair. Castor oil has anti-microbial properties, that will help you get rid of dandruff and other scalp issues. Castor oil contains ricinoleic acid which treats scalp inflammations and diseases. Castor oil moisturizes and softens hair, maintaining the moisture level in the hair. Castor oil aids in blood circulation and therefore results in faster hair growth. Since it is moisturizing in nature, it can be used to treat dry scalp. To use, apply it well on scalp and run through the hair, leave overnight, and wash it with a mild shampoo the next day. Regular use of castor oil gives you healthy, thick, shiny, and moisturized hair.

2. Bhringraj Oil:

Bhringraj oil is made from combining Eclipta alba or False Daisy with sesame oil. This oil helps in reducing hair fall, prevents premature greying, and also aids in faster hair growth. Regular use will give you healthy and long hair. Bhringraj is available in prepared form in ayurvedic shops, you can read review of one such oil here.

3. Olive Oil:
Olive oil

Olive oil is a highly moisturizing hair oil, rich in vitamin E which is so important for hair growth. Olive oil has a high concentration of anti-oxidants which is good for both hair and skin. Olive oil is lightweight and contains oleic acid which easily penetrates the hair shaft and locks in the moisture. Olive oil is the best natural conditioner available and will give you touchably soft and smooth hair with regular use. Since this oil has anti-inflammatory properties, it helps in treating dandruff thereby reducing hair fall and aiding in subsequent hair growth.

4. Sesame Oil:

Sesame oil is used as a base oil in many ayurvedic preparations for hair growth, for example, bhringraj oil. Since sesame oil is anti-microbial, it treats a lot of scalp infections and fungal infections. Sesame is best when used as a hot oil treatment. It conditions hair, nourishes scalp, and gets rid of dandruff and the vitamin E in the oil boosts hair growth.

5. Argan Oil:
Argan Oil

Argan oil is taking the beauty world by storm and why not, it is an excellent oil for healthy hair. It hydrates and moisturizes hair, it penetrates hair shafts and nourishes deeply. Argan oil is rich in anti-oxidants and repairs damaged hair. The high vitamin E and vitamin F content repairs damaged hair and makes the hair lustrous. Argan oil also treats split ends. It is known as “liquid gold” for its wonderful properties on hair and is absolutely great for hair damaged from heat styling.

6. Jojoba Oil:
Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil is highly beneficial for both hair and skin because of its moisturizing and healing properties. Regular use of the oil makes hair lustrous and frizz free. Jojoba oil aids in hair growth by helping in the growth of new hair cells. It acts against dandruff and thus reduces hair fall.

7. Coconut Oil:
Coconut oil

Its the best hair oil and gives healthy, soft, and lustrous hair. Coconut oil is a natural conditioner rich in vitamin E and antioxidants which repairs damaged hair. Coconut oil is known to penetrate into hair follicles and stimulating hair growth and moisturizes dry hair. Coconut oil makes hair softer and prevents hair breakage and split ends. Also, when herbs like bhringa, brahmi, curry leaves, and other ayurvedic ingredients are added to coconut oil, it becomes a miracle oil that cures all hair issues and makes hair grow faster in a short period of time.

Another oil for dandruff is pure neem oil. It stinks I know. It should be applied on the scalp and kept overnight and washed off with a nice strong smelling shampoo. If this is done twice or thrice in a row then dandruff vanishes!!! Another thing to remember is that pillow covers need to be changed to prevent recurrence. I did it twice and my scalp became extremely CLEAN ! I mean no dandruff, no itchiness and no dirt in the scalp. This oil made my scalp very healthy.


Priyanka July 4, 2014 at 3:41 pm

I use hibiscus oil n it made wonders on my hair. Even my husband uses d same n his hair fall too is reduced.


Archana July 4, 2014 at 4:48 pm

I used olive oil+almond oil last 15 years,it is best for me,in winter i used with castor oil,great combination 🙂


mehak ahuja July 4, 2014 at 8:57 pm

I hav severe hairfall…..thinning. … dandruff….tried hell lot of things….. currently on medical prescription for hairfall n to get more volume.hav thin n wavy hair… please guide me which oil shud I use….can I mix some of the above mentioned oils n use…..


Maharani July 10, 2014 at 12:39 pm

You can use Himalaya anti hair fall oil and castor oil alternatively.As castor oil is thick, you can mix it with coconut oil leaving overnight.Use egg on hairs, its very effective for hair fall. Applying raw onion juice on hair roots can be very effective, don’t worry about the smell, it will vanish after you shampoo.Leave the juice for an hour and then wash it off as normal.Use shampoos that do not contain sulphates. Hope the above tips help,as I was also facing the same problem, but now my problem has been solved.All of the above tips should be applied on alternate day basis and you need to be very patient.

ive been using coconut oil in my hair for about a month. i recently cut my hair around the same time i started using coconut oil in my hair. i cut my hair from the damage of always dying it diff. colors so my ends were horrible. i cut it to the top of my ears. *nonono* i didnt like the short look at all so my mom told me to use coconut oil my goodness i love it *happydance* my hair after a month is already to my shoulders. and i use it on my daugters hair also and her hair was already at her shoulder now since using it on her this past month its in the middle of her back. amazement *announce* *announce* i would recommend coconut oil any day!!


Léa January 3, 2015 at 10:16 pm

Hi! I also had cut my hair recently, but the hairdresser got me completely wrong! So your text is really giving me hope and I wanted to ask how did you use the coconut oil exactly? Did you warm it or something ? Did you let it over night ? Sorry for bad english, thank you so much !!

srividhya September 6, 2014 at 12:23 pm

*announce* all the above said oils are good… but for faster hair growth we should take some Iron, zinc, vitamin bcomplex especially vitamin B12(biotin) rich foods mainly fruits and vegetables. ….All the best for faster hair growth *duh*

Spring Lady April 9, 2015 at 3:12 pm

I wonder how can you miss avocado oil on this list. Of many oils i have used, i felt avocado and jojoba oil as the best ones. They not only promotes hair growth but also reduces hair loss to a greater extend.


veenusha May 27, 2015 at 10:34 am

Thank you for all these great tips i’m sure its a great boost to many people.I had the same problem too and i will tell you a secret that my great grandma told me for beautiful hair.Every morning go in the garden and pass your hand on the grass or leaves to take the first dew and then rub it on the tips of your hair only the tips ok. It works wonders. Also take watercress and olive,almond or argan oil blend all and make a paste.put in on your scalp and leave for one hour. wash with a good shampoo and see the results yourself.Amazing…..:)


Mohsina June 4, 2015 at 4:08 pm

Actually coconut oil will promote hair growth but it cannot control hair loss..I have been using it with amla oil since my childhood.. i have got a long black frizzy south indian hair . For theLast six months i m using olive oil and i got amazing results..If u have grey hair use mox amla oil with ur regular oil and enjoy the black shining hair..


Sarah princess July 25, 2015 at 5:33 pm

i will use olive oil because it is much better from all oils


Prathistha July 28, 2015 at 7:56 pm

I had so shiny and thick hairs but they are no more my roots weakend due to i was using more more straightner like everyday…
Some please help how can i save my hairs from hairfall


kinjal December 18, 2015 at 7:54 am

Castro+ olive+almond+keshking+coconut oil is best blend. My hair just lives it. Castrol is heavy. But I warm it up n use it on my roots directly many a times. N in two wash it go away.


SRI January 30, 2016 at 10:42 am

As mentioned above, Biotin rich food is good and some good multivitamin tabs would really promote the length and overall health of your awesome tresses.


Jennie September 9, 2016 at 5:00 am

Please help. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don’t know what to do. my hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should i do to regrow hair?
