Home Remedies For Hair Growth

In this lens, I will go over two organic products on the market that work really great for beautiful, healthy hair. These two products are organic coconut oil and Moroccan argan oil.

Both are 100% naturally organic, can be consumed as well as used externally, and work great for both healthy hair and skin. These two oils have stood out to me as being the best products on the market that are all natural and truly work.

I have been looking for that miracle product for my hair since forever. First, I learned of the benefits of organic coconut oil for the hair and I have been using it now for over 6 months. It has helped tremendously for the treatment of my itchy scalp and dandruff.

I notice my hair to be less frizzy, less split ends, healthier scalp, and no dandruff. It also grows at a healthy rate and it's even safe to use for baby's dry scalp and skin. Also, coconut oil works really good when used internally and externally.

After months of using organic coconut oil, I learned of this product which grows from the argan tree in Morocco, Moroccan Argan Oil. There are a few differences between both oils. But, overall, both are all natural and have many benefits.

After learning the benefits of argan oil for the hair, skin, and nails, I just had to try it. What I found was an amazing oil that absorbs easily and quickly into the hair without any greasy or oily feeling. The argan oil can be used on both wet and dry hair and can be used as an anti-frizz gel on dry hair.

Benefits of Coconut Oil For Hair

I've tried everything for my dandruff problem, but nothing seemed to work until I tried organic coconut oil. I will use it to deep condition my hair once every 2 weeks by massaging into the scalp and leaving in for an hour or so, then wash and condition as normal. It's always important to trim your hair every 6 to 8 weeks.

There are many benefits with the daily and/or weekly use of organic coconut oil for hair:

  • Cleans & nourishes the hair

  • Healthy scalp & dandruff

  • Control frizzy or unruly hair

  • Use internally & externally

  • Shiny, beautiful, radiant hair

  • Promotes hair growth

  • Minimizes protein loss

  • Replaces the hair's natural oils

  • All natural & no chemicals

  • Safe to use on baby's scalp

How to Use Coconut Oil For Hair

For treating baldness:

Apply to the area of hair loss 3 times per day. This will help support cell regeneration while promoting the hair to grow.

Dry scalp and dandruff:

Massage into the scalp and leave in for as long as you'd like (even overnight). You can wrap your hair in a warm towel. It will help to moisturize the scalp while controlling the oil secretion, which is the main cause of dandruff.

As a leave in conditioner:

Massage some into the hair and/or scalp, but very little. You can leave in for as long as you'd like, then wash and condition as usual.

As a pre-shampoo:

Before washing the hair, massage some into the ends. Leave in for as long as you'd like, then wash and condition as usual. I do this but I only leave it in for a few minutes before washing my hair.

With coconut oil, you really only need to use a very small amount. If you use too much, your hair will look and feel oily.

Benefits of Argan Oil For Hair

Argan Oil for hair is becoming popular in hair salons across the country. Just the other day I was having my hair done and the stylist said he will add some miracle oil to finish. He told me the miracle oil was called Moroccan argan oil. Even models and celebrities use this amazing oil for beautiful hair and skin.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Smells great

  • Absorbs easily into the scalp and hair

  • No oily residue

  • Does not weigh the hair down

  • Adds moisture to the hair

  • Smooth, frizz-free look

  • Beautiful natural shine

  • Soothes dry scalp and relieves dandruff

How To Use Argan Oil For Hair

Argan Oil can be used on dry or wet hair. It can easily replace all your gels, mousses, anti-frizz products, and hair smoothing lotions. This stuff truly is worth its weight in gold. There is no wrong or right way to use. You just don't have to use a lot of it.

On dry hair:

To use on hair that is dry, simply use the argan oil as a gel or anti-frizz lotion to calm the hair down. it will leave the hair soft and manageable. You can also apply to your hair right before you wash it by wrapping your hair in a warm towel and letting the oil sink in for as long as you'd like.

On wet hair:

After you wash and condition your hair in the shower, simply apply as a mousse or gel. You only need to use a dime-sized amount. Then, style your hair as usual.

For dry scalp:

Massage a small amount into the scalp to treat dry scalp and dandruff. You can wrap your hair in a warm towel so the oil absorbs into the scalp. Then, wash your hair as normal.

For very damaged and dry hair:

You can even leave the oil in overnight and wash it out the next day. Just wrap your hair so the oil doesn't get on your pillow or sheets.

Before and after styling with heat:

It can be applied in a small amount to the ends before styling your hair with heat. when you're done, apply a small amount for a beautiful, frizz free and glossy finish.

      Natural products for hair make sense - many shampoos have sulfate, paraben and silicone in them and that just causes drying and frizzing. This sounds like a great product for healthy hair, and if it's natural it can't have harmful chemicals. thanks for the info.

      @OldCowboy: My husband is bald and he, too, keeps it shaved. He refuses to use it on his head, he says he's perfectly happy being bald. I'm with your wife on this one, bald is definitely beautiful!! I also add c.o. to my shampoo. It can really be used in any way, just be careful not to use too much or else your hair feel and look oily. Thanks for comment.

      @BuyAndStoreGold: I think you're going to need some good ole hair dye for this. If you like to go all natural, you can try dying your hair with coffee. I did it a few times and it does darken your hair, but I don't know how it works on grays.

      @Judith Nazarewicz: Hi. Argan oil is really good for your hair and face. It's becoming very popular because it absorbs easily into the skin and hair, without oily residue. The only downside is that it's expensive. A very small bottle cost around 18.00 and a good sized bottle around 48.00. It's really good stuff and lasts a long time. Also, there's a lot of imitation argan oils out there. Josie Maran is the best, in my opinion. Thanks.

      @trekkieguy: If you use very little and massage into your scalp daily and paying attention to the bald spots may help overtime. Of course, if you use a lot, your scalp will be oily. If this happens, simply wash your hair/scalp with a gentle shampoo.

      Great lens, Melissa. Almost without fail, the products Mother Nature generates are superior to anything man can throw together. Coconut oil is another prime example.

      How much coconut oil would you use for bald spots? Does it leave a residue?

      I like the idea of using coconut oil to promote hair growth. I'll give that a try. Thanks.

      Awesome lens! I love using coconut oil and I use it daily both internally and externally. I buy it by the huge container and just about found myself considering the idea of purchasing it in a 2 and a half gallon pail. :-) As for Argan oil, I've never tried it, so your information on it is very interesting. I think that I'll see about getting some. :-)

      Thanks so much for sharing.

      My hair grows just fine but started turning gray at a younger than normal age. Anything for that?

      Will it work on my balding head? lol I keep it shaved most of the time for my woman who is a big bald-is-beautiful fan. I am so glad, otherwise I might have to figure out how to get the hairs from my hairy beard to migrate north! My wife adds coconut oil to her shampoo. Is this an accepted way to go about it, or should it be a treatment that takes place after the shampoo and rinse?
