7 Plants That Promote Hair Growth ...

By Jelena

Hair growth is one of the most discussed subjects of hair care and it is no secret that every woman dreams of having healthier, thicker hair! Well, my ladies, if you love natural stuff and enjoy concocting a natural hair growth treatment every once in a while, take a look at this list of amazing herbs you can use for your hair growth treatments:

1 Aloe Vera

Widely known for its amazing ability to aid hair growth, treat dandruff and keep scalp properly moisturized and balanced, Aloe Vera is one of those versatile plants you can use just anyhow you want without having to worry about any side effects! Add Aloe Vera gel to your shampoo to create a cleansing solution, mix it with your favorite essential oils for a nurturing hair mask or combine one quarter of a cup of almond oil with one half of a cup Aloe Vera for a non-greasy, non toxic gel!

2 Fenugreek

Also known as Greek Hay or Methi, this herb is widely used in many natural hair growth treatments. It is said to do wonders for thinning hair, bald spots as well as hair quality in general which means that you can use it to prevent or treat an existing condition. Boil Fenugreek seed powder and use this liquid as a restorative rinse to thicken your thinning tresses and cure dandruff or mix this powder with coconut milk or your favorite essential oils to use as a scalp mask.

3 Rosemary

This great-smelling herb can really slow down premature hair loss and help you have thick, long hair of your dreams! It stimulates roots, soothes an irritated scalp, will condition and moisturize your hair root to end and can even slightly darken your graying hair! Pretty neat, huh? Well, then it’s time to determine whether or not you can use Rosemary (and I have to point that out because not all people react well to it) and give this natural hair growth treatment a shot!

4 Reishi Mushroom

Also known as Ganoderma lucidum, this Chinese mushroom is yet another ancient hair growth treatment I’d like to bring to your attention. It’s usually mixed with other herbs and used as a restorative tonic that helps slow down premature hair loss although ancient Chinese medicine acknowledges its other benefits as well! Reishi Mushroom is actually very rich in antioxidants and, as such, is a real rejuvenating treat!

5 Ginko Biloba

Speaking about anti-oxidant rich herbs… Have you heard of Ginko Biloba before? Well, apart from being one of the most praised anti-aging herbs, Ginko can be used as a natural hair growth treatment too! It increases blood flow into the scalp, helping your tissues get all the oxygen they need to function properly thus speeding up your metabolism and boosting your immunity and hair growth! Awesome! There is one catch, though! Ginko can thin you blood which means you must consult your doctor before you decide to use it.

6 Safflower

Looking for an interesting new oil to use for your hair growth treatments? How about Safflower oil? It’s probably not as widely known as other essential oils such as rosemary or castor oil but it’s just as beneficial and crucial for healthy, long, thick hair! This amazing oil should be used for scalp massages as it helps widen the blood vessels, ensuring increased blood flow into the scalp.

7 Catnip

I’ve already mentioned this fabulous plant – haven’t I? Well, let’s talk about it some more! Now, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but as it turns out, fast growing hair is not the only thing you’ll get if you decide to use this herb in your hair care routine! Yup, I’m talking I’m about healthy, shiny hair that doesn’t split as easily as it once did as well as thick, luscious tresses you could only dream about before! Isn’t that amazing? Well, all you have to do is soak one teaspoon of dried Catnip into one cup of hot water, let it cool down, strain and use this tea as a natural mask you’ll leave in your hair anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours!

Have you used any of these amazing plants in your hair growth treatments and are there any other great, note worthy stuff that aid hair growth? Do share!
