DIY: Hair oil mix 

Updated: Jun 24, 2020

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.

Peppermint oil: 2 tablespoons.

Eucalyptus Oil: 2 tablespoons

Jamaican Black Castor Oil: 1/8 cup

Jojoba (it is pronounced ho-ho-bah) oil: 4 tablespoons

Almond Oil: 1/8 cup 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.
