If your scalp is prone to being dry, using hair oils and also maintaining your hair's moisture is a great way to promote hair growth.
I have been using hair oils since going natural in 2014 and I love it! It has helped me achieve and maintain my current length.
I decided to share the oils I use as well as links to help others. In addition, DiscoveringNatural has great information on oil mixes.
I apply this oil mix to my scalp once a week and massage it through my hair for approximately 5 minutes.
OIL MIX: This mix is dependent on the size of the container you're using.
I have an 8oz bottle.
Eucalyptus Oil: 2 tablespoons
Jamaican Black Castor Oil: 1/8 cup https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003CTTZQQ/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Jojoba (it is pronounced ho-ho-bah) oil: 4 tablespoons https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CMT8DA/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Almond Oil: 1/8 cup https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0019LVFSU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 100% Extra virgin olive oil: 1/8 cup
All of the oils above perform specific functions in scalp/skin health and should be tested on a small part of your skin BEFORE using it on your entire scalp.
