27 Recipes for Homemade Hair Growth Treatments 👩🏽🍯 ...
10. Nettle Hair Tonic
The nettle hair tonic recipe is probably one of the most complicated hair growth treatments on this list, but it's also incredibly effective.
It thickens your hair and also prevents hair loss, so it's great if you want thicker, fuller locks with lots of volume.
This treatment is not recommended for blonde hair!
Recipe: Begin with an ounce of nettle leaves, two cups of white wine vinegar, and two cups of water (make sure you have lavender essential oil as well, you'll need it later). Place all the ingredients in a pan (making sure it's non-reactive), let it simmer on the stove for two hours, then let the mixture cool before you strain it. Now's the time for the lavender oil: once you've strained your nettle mixture, stir in about two drops of the oil, then decant everything in a bottle that has a tight lid. Remember to shake it well before use and massage the mixture into your scalp every other day. Let it set for as long or as little as you like; it can be left on overnight, as long as you cover your hair.
How Often: Depending on your hair, you can use this every other day. If you have dry hair, once a week is best!
Where to Buy: The white wine vinegar is available at all retailers and grocery stores, as is the lavender oil, which you'll also find at your local health stores. Find the nettle leaves at drugstores like Walgreens, drugstore.com, or a variety of health stores both online and off!
