Introducing A Girl’s Guide to DIY: Beauty from Your Kitchen


In this brand new weekly series, we explore different ways to create your very own natural beauty products at home.  We want everyone to feel welcome in our community, regardless of finances. This series was created so that all of us can participate in this green beauty movement and take back control of what we are putting in our bodies, on our bodies and in our environment.  A Girl’s Guide is your go-to place for all things DIY.

There are a lot of reasons why you or a friend of yours may be looking for a natural hair growth oil:

  1. We may style and color our hair until it is broken, thin, and basically a damaged mess.
  2. Others may have a health issue that has caused their hair to thin or has caused significant hair loss, this includes medications that cause hair thinning or hair loss.
  3. Still others may have poor eating habits. If you are not healthy in body, you will not have healthy, beautiful hair.
  4. Lastly, we cannot forget that genetics play a huge role! If your mom has thin hair, there’s a good chance you may too. If male pattern baldness is in your family, you may genetically be turning off hair follicle growth and all external action will not help.

You will need to look into your causes and make any changes you can to improve your health and the health of your hair.

What you should be doing:

  1. Eat healthy! This is huge! Consume a good amount of vegetables, proteins and fats so you can produce natural oil for your hair and keep your growth cycle going on schedule.
  2. Drink a lot of water.
  3. Massage your scalp gently to increase circulation.
  4. Exercise to increase blood flow.
Let’s kick it off with an all natural hair growth oil that works for me and can works for you too just like a magic in less than 20 days! Scalp massages and oils work to stimulate healthy hair and major growth, and infusing your oil with essential oils is absolutely amazing for the hair. Essential oils work to stimulate the follicles in the scalp and encourage healthy growth. The cool thing is, hair growth oils are so simple to make at home, and you can use things you probably already have! Here’s a super easy, cost-effective way to make your own growth oil and see results.

How to make it

Here’s what you’ll need:
 Olive oil: Damaged, dull, dry or frizzy hair, as well as for those who suffer from dandruff. Great for improving hair growth.
 Coconut oil: antibacterial and increases thickness
Jamaican Black Castor oil: helps thicken hair and encourage growth
Peppermint essential oilstimulates hair growth
Rosemary essential oil: also great for growth
Argan Oil: Those who have dry, brittle, frizzy or coarse hair should definitely opt for argan oil. If you style your hair frequently exposing it to heat from gadgets like straighteners, curlers and dryers, this is a good option for you.
Jojoba Oil: Those who want to boost hair growth and control dandruff. It is also ideal for those with dry scalp issues and damaged and dull hair.
Almond Oil:Those with dry, damaged and dull hair and for those who lack omega-3 fatty acids in their bodies. If you have hair loss issues, this oil is apt for you.
Applicator bottle for use
Now, I use all of the ingredients listed above, but if you’re short on cash, stick to whatever you have or can get your hands on. Even combining, say, two of these ingredients will have beneficial effects on your hair. Use this recipe as a blueprint or inspiration, customize it however you want!
I make and use my oil in an 8 oz applicator bottle, adding more oils whenever I see it getting low. I eyeball the quantities of each ingredient, making sure to fill the bottle all the way up. Since all of these ingredients are nourishing and healthy, I’m not too picky with exact measurements, though generally, I try to use equal parts carrier oils (olive, coconut and castor oil) and 10 drops of each essential oil. Simply pour each oil into the bottle, shake until everything is mixed together. Voila! So quick, so easy.

How to use

The beauty of this recipe is that it can be used in multiple ways. A few times a week, I apply it all over my scalp and give myself a five minute (minimum) massage. It feels so good and it works to stimulate and nourish the hair follicles, encouraging hair growth.
I also use this oil to seal my ends when doing a protective or low manipulation style. Every wash day I do 8 braids and I use this oil recipe to seal my ends, and sometimes throughout my hair. During the week when moisturizing my braids, I add a little extra oil to make sure they stay nice and healthy.
Sometimes, when I’m feeling fancy, I use this oil as a pre-poo to detangle my hair before washing. I usually just use coconut oil, but this recipe packs a bit more of a punch. The night before wash day I section my hair, apply this oil, and detangle. I let it stay in overnight and when I go to wash my hair the next day, it’s super moisturized and the shampoo doesn’t feel nearly as stripping.
When it comes to natural beauty, you can use quality ingredients at a low price, most of which you already have in your kitchen! Having healthy skin and hair doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
