1. Yellow Shea Butter For Hair Growth

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.42.40 AM

When I first heard about Shea butter, I decided to start using it on my sons skin (with all the other ingredients in my shea butter mixture) because he had very bad eczema.  I noticed that after awhile of using the Shea butter on his skin, his eczema started to clear up and his hair line started to grow back.  He had lost his hair line due to his excessive itching on his scalp, caused by the eczema.

Once I noticed how my mixture was working on him, I started using it on my scalp, hair and skin.  After some months of doing this, the bald spot where I had alopecia started to regrow hair.  I was so amazed! Since then I’ve done a lot of research to find out, why is shea butter so good for hair and skin?

Unrefined Shea Butter is The Way to Go

Shea butter is rich in vitamins, minerals and other natural properties and that is why I decided to use it as the base of my Shea Butter Mixture.  Shea butter’s main components includes linoleic acid, stearic acid and oleic acid along with many others, which are easily and quickly absorbed into our skin because  of our bodies warm temperature.  Raw unrefined shea butter contains all of these natural properties, but refined shea butter does not. This is why I only use raw, unrefined shea butter on my hair and skin.

It’s an Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory

Unrefined Shea butter has so many beneficial health benefits for skin and hair because it contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Shea butter contains Vitamin A, E, F and others, that protect our bodies from free radicals.  Free radical damages our healthy cells and they are responsible for many of the health issues we face, including hair loss and hair loss related conditions.  If our bodies are healthy, our hair will be healthy also. Inflammatory issues are main symptoms of a lot of scalp and skin conditions.  Conditions such as eczema and psoriasis contribute to hair loss.  Shea butter has inflammatory properties, which help to heal us of these scalp and skin conditions and allow our scalp (and body) to re-grow hair in a healthy environment.  Since unrefined shea butter has no added chemicals, it is ideal for sensitive skin.

It Keeps Your Hair Safe and Protected

Shea butter can be used as a natural sunscreen and hair protectant because there is a low amount of SPF.   This can protect our hair and skin from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun.  Shea butter coats the hair shaft and also protects it from damage caused by chemical hair treatments, blow dryers, straighteners and other hair tools that cause damage to your hair.  Shea butter can coat and protect your hair from the salt and chlorine contained in swimming pools as well. Whatever is good for skin is good for our scalp.  Shea butter has anti-aging benefits because of it’s collagen production, which contributes to youthful skin and it keeps premature wrinkles at bay.  It also restores elasticity in our skin. It soothes dry, itchy and irritated scalp, without clogging our pores, so that our hair can grow without any obstructions or hinderances.

How to Apply Shea Butter to Your Hair and Scalp

Shea Butter is great for our skin and scalp, but it is also great for direct application to our hair.  Raw unrefined shea butter is solid, dense and not really soft.  To apply it just scrape it out of the container with your finger, put it int the palm of your hands and rub your hands together.  The heat from your hands will cause the shea butter to melt and then just apply it to your hair and scalp.   You can watch me apply my Shea Butter Mixture on Youtube.   Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.31.24 AMScreen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.32.02 AMScreen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.32.37 AMScreen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.32.57 AM  Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.32.46 AM

How Does Shea Butter Restores Damaged Hair?

Since Shea butter is rich in Vitamin A and E it can repair damaged and split ends as well as it adds moisture to dry, brittle, dull, lifeless hair.  Shea butter hydrates, softens, conditions and overall beautifies our hair. Shea butter adds all of these awesome benefits to our hair, without leaving it greasy and heavy (based on the amount you use).  Shea butter restores moisture to hair that has been damaged from chemical hair treatments, blow dryers, straighteners and other hair tools that cause damage to your hair.

Shea Butter’s Naturally Heals…

Due to shea butter’s nutrient dense components (including several kinds of fatty acids) it has a vast amount of healing properties for skin and hair. It is very effective at healing and curing conditions that directly affect the scalp, such as:
  • Burns
  • Dermatitis
  • Dry Skin
  • Eczema
  • Hair Conditioner
  • Hair & Skin Moisturizer
  • Insect bites/ stings
  • Itchy Skin
  • Scars and Sores
  • Skin Allergies & Rashes
  • Skin Cracks
And so much more….  

2. Coconut oil for Hair Growth

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.28.16 AM

Moisturizes and Maintains Hair

This is one of my secret weapons and personal favorites for hair maintenance.  I regularly use Coconut to maintain my hair, keeping it strong and moisturized.  In fact my whole family uses it as a natural moisturizer for skin and hair, since eczema runs in my family. Coconut oil (CO) is Great for hair growth.  For those of you who do not know, coconut oil is a Superfood, and can be applied directly onto the hair or it can be taken orally to help improve the health of your hair and your total body.  Coconut oil contains Vitamin E, K, iron and many other minerals and vitamins.  It is an antibacterial, an antiviral an antioxidant and so much more. Coconut oil is great for moisture and moisture retention.  Coconut oils contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals that are key to keeping your hair strong, nourished and moisturized.  Coconut oil has the ability to penetrate our hair shaft and therefore conditioning and moisturizing our hair from within.

How Does Coconut Oil Protect Your Hair?

CO also coats the hair, protecting your hair strand from environmental damage. When CO coats our hair it also does not let moisture escape very easily and that keeps our hair moist and soft, which prevents split ends, breakage and overall damage of our hair. When you apply coconut oil onto your hair strands, there is a fatty acid present called Lauric Acid. Lauric Acid easily binds to the hair protein protecting your hair from root to tip.  This is very important for hair growth because when your hair strands are protected from damage and they remain healthy and strong, you hair will stay on your head longer.This will contribute to hair growth and thickness. When your hair is not protected, it leads to breakage, split ends and damage to your hair.  This causes it to break off or fall out.  This obviously hinders the overall length and health of your hair.  Similarly, when the root is protected and healthy, it will keep your hair strands of hair on your head longer, adding to the thickness, lustre, softness and shine of your hair.

Antibacterial and Antiviral Properties

Coconut Oil has antibacterial and antiviral properties, which protect your scalp from unwanted hair conditions, such as, lice, dandruff, boils, eczema, psoriasis and that is only to name a few.  If your scalp is healthy, your hair will be able to grow in an environment that contributes to health, and length.  If these various hair conditions are also the cause of your hair loss or thinning, coconut oil can help cleanse your scalp and keep if free to grow hair and stop hair loss. While CO is great at keeping unwanted scalp/hair conditions at bay, it is great at improving blood circulation. Improving the blood circulation of your scalp, will ensure that your hair follicles get an adequate amount of oxygen.  Oxygen carries essential nutrients your follicles need to promote hair growth of strong, healthy hair. (Read More Here)

Coconut Oil for Styling Hair

Coconut oil is also great for styling, which is another reason why I use it so much.  So instead of using hair sprays and gels, that may be full of chemicals, you can use an all natural and simple oil to style your hair, while adding nutrients to your hair and scalp.  CO can be applied in its liquid state, but as it cools down it hardens.  But it’s still soft, unlike those hair gels and sprays. I personally use CO as a hair conditioner and a styler.  I also use if another very important part of my Hair Growth Journey regarding  regrowth and strength of my hair. (Read More Here)

3. Jojoba Oil For Hair Growth

Jojoba Oil Healing for Hair and Skin

Jojoba (pronounced ho-ho-ba oil) is another great oil that I added to my Shea Butter Mixture, due to it’s high nutritional value to our hair and skin.  I was surprised to find out that Jojoba oil is one of the few oils that is almost identical to our bodies natural oil, sebum.  It can be mixed very easily with other oils and it can be quickly and easily absorbed into the scalp and hair.  Jojoba oil has a wide range of benefits for the health of scalp and hair.

Jojoba oil is an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and it is non-toxic. This is great for individuals like myself who have sensitive skin and who like myself have suffered from various skin/scalp conditions.  JO reduces swelling and it eliminates skin bacteria. It is great and helping to heal various skin infections, such as, eczema, psoriasis and other bacterial infections.  It keeps the scalp clean from impurities and it maintains a healthy environment to allow hair to grow and be nourished, keeping it strong and healthy.

Protecting and Moisturizing Your Hair

Jojoba oil is great for protecting your hair from the outside environment by coating your hair strands with an organic barrier.  This keeps unwanted damage away and keeps needed moisture and nourishments in.  Jojoba oil will also close your hair follicles.  So if you are in a swimming pool with chlorine or salt , Jojoba oil will protect your hair from the stripping of it’s natural oils and the destruction of your hair.  This will also allow your hair to stay moisturized and grow.

Jojoba oil is a great scalp and hair moisturizer.  As I mentioned before it is so close to the properties of our natural sebum, which makes it great at adding oil to our hair and scalp.  This helps us by  enhancing our hairs overall look and quality.  It lubricates, hydrates and conditions our hair, causing it to look shiny, feel soft and to add strength. The protein, vitamins and minerals acts like a natural conditioner for your hair.  If your hair is dry, brittle and gets knotty easily, jojoba oil makes it easy to detangle and makes your hair more manageable.  This helps reduce breakage from combing your hair to roughly and it promotes hair growth and length.

Healing Your Scalp and Hair Regrowth

JO has the ability to unblock pores and to free our pores from unwanted particle or sebum build up. This is important for the overall growth of our hair because when our scalp is clean and our pores are clear, this will allow nutrients to enter into our hair follicle and it will allow our hair to grow healthy and strong. Unclogging our pores also stops hair loss and thinning caused by blocked hair follicles.  This is accomplished because when jojoba oil melts, it opens up the clogged pores and it encourages new hair growth.

If your hair has been previously damaged due to harsh treatments and handling, jojoba oil is great at repairing damaged hair. Due to jojoba oils “sebum like” properties it is able to reverse the damage cause to your hair by, harsh chemicals or products, excessive shampooing or styling, heating tools (such as hair straighteners and blow dryers), perming, dying, ect. Jojoba oil is extremely effective at treating dry, brittle, damaged split ends and other various hair loss issues.


Jojoba oil contains Linoleic acid and other antioxidents that aid in skin and cell regeneration.  This is especially important to those of us who have struggled or are struggling with hair loss issues.  With our body regenerating cells, this allows our scalp to grow new, strong and healthy hairs, which contributes to the overall health, volume and lustre of our hair.

4. Sweet Almond Oil For Hair Growth

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.41.21 AM First off I want to say that, I really like the texture of Sweet Almond oil.  It’s not a thick greasy type of oil.  It’s a light oil and it absorbs very easily onto my scalp. I personally find it’s a great moisturizer for my hair.  But with all that said let’s get down to the nitty gritty of Sweet Almond and what it does. I’ve come to learn that Sweet Almond oil is loaded with many hair, skin and overall health benefits.

Prevention and Protection

If you are suffering from a magnesium deficiency, your hair may fall out.  Thankfully, sweet almond oil contains magnesium and this mineral will keep your hair from falling out, especially when it is combined with other vitamins and minerals. Magnesium, along with the other vitamins, strengthen your hair at the root, which can help to stop excessive breakage and hair loss.

Vitamins and Minerals for Your Hair

It contains a high concentration of proteins, minerals and vitamins.  Some include: magnesium, zinc, fatty acid omega 9, 3 and 6; as well as vitamin A, B and E.  These various nutritional components of this oil helps to add shine to dry, dull, hair and; it provides nutrients for amazing hair growth.  It’s essentially great for protection from unwanted hair loss.

Antioxidants for Scalp and Skin

Sweet almond oil contains antioxidants, which help to cleanse the scalp of impurities that my be responsible for unwanted hair loss. It does this by unblocking pores and keeping our scalp nourished.  This results in a softer and smoother scalp, which is an ideal environment for hair growth.  Pores can get blocked by dead skin cells, dirt, sweat or even product build up. The vitamins and minerals relieve dry, itchy and irritated skin and reduces skin inflammation caused by skin conditions; such as dandruff, eczema and psoriasis.  The rich zinc properties is also responsible for curing many of those skin conditions as well.

How Does Sweet Almond Oil Moisturize Your Hair?

As I’ve mentioned before Sweet Almond oil is a great moisturizer.  It absorbs very easily into your scalp and hair shaft; quickly keeping your hair moisturized longer.  The fatty acid contents is what allows your hair to stay moisturized. The many vitamins and minerals keep your hair healthy and strong preventing breakage and split ends.

It also softens the hair and allows it to keep its elasticity, which keeps your hair strong, manageable and growing.  Massaging sweet almond oil into your scalp promotes hair growth by stimulating the hair follicles and reducing hair loss.

5. Jamaican Black Castor Oil For Hair Growth

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.42.54 AM Castor oil is great for hair.  It’s very thick and greasy, so use it wisely.  I personally use Jamaican Black Castor oil because I’ve heard so many good reviews about how it helps your hair to grow thick.  I can’t prove whether or not this is true, however I did include Jamaican Castor oil in my shea butter mixture which resulted in my hair growing back thicker and faster.  We have heard of the saying “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” My hair finally started growing back after years of struggling to retain hair growth, so I decided to continue to use Jamaican Black castor oil and I have not tried regular castor oil at all.

The Difference Between Jamaican Castor Oil and Regular Castor Oil

Some believe that the difference between Jamaican Black Castor Oil and regular castor oil is that Jamaican black castor oil is dark and therefore not refined or processed, which makes it more superior to the clear castor oil.  This is not the case.   Jamaican black castor oil got it’s dark color, due to the ashes from the roasted castor oil bean, being added into the castor oil.  Castor oil in it’s natural state is a yellow color. The clear castor oil in stores have been processed.

Why are the ashes added into the Jamaican castor oil?

It is believed that the ashes have natural and organic health properties and that the ashes do aid in better hair growth and healthy hair. So which is better?  Like I said, some have raved about longer hair growth and thicker hair.  All I know is that my hair grew using whatever was in my shea butter mixture, so all the ingredients will remain the same.

Jamaican Castor Oil Strengthens Your Hair

Castor oil has great benefits for healthy hair growth and retention. It is full of antioxidants, omega 9 fatty acid and ricinoleic. Omega 9 is a phenomenal hair growth aid. It aids in activating hair growth and it fights back against thinning and baldness. It is responsible for preventing the keratin to get damaged due to the outdoor environment. It also adds strength to the hair follicle, which aids in hair growth. Overall Omega 9 promotes new hair growth and it prevents and protects our hair from thinning, damage and balding from hair loss. Restoring Shine by Cleansing Your Scalp Castor oil adds shine and lustre to your hair. The vitamins and minerals add strength and volume to our hair.  It also balances and restores our scalps pH levels. By restoring the pH levels or bodies are able to help keep those irritating skin and scalp conditions (like dandruff or eczema) away, allowing our hair to grow and get longer and thicker.  It also has anti-fungal and antiseptic properties, which aids in keeping our scalp clean and clear of any skin infections or hair loss related conditions.

Antioxidants Help Your Hair to Grow

The antioxidants in castor oil increases blood circulation to the scalp, which increases oxygen flow and allows our scalp to get the nourishment it needs to generate new and healthy cells that will in turn aid in generating new and healthy hair. The extra oxygen allows the roots of our hair to grow strong. If the root is strong, it allows the hair to stay in the head longer. Weak and brittle hairs t the root, cause the hair to fall out quickly, which aid in hair loss and hair loss related conditions. Castor oil is a great oil to use on your hair for the overall promotion of hair growth promotion and for radiant, stronger, robust and overall healthy hair.  

6. Lavender Oil For Hair Growth

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.42.21 AM Lavender oil is something I use for its healing, therapeutic properties and its aromatherapy (smell).  Since lavender oil is an essential oil, if it is applied directly to your scalp, it can cause irritation.  It is best used mixed in with a base oil or butter. Lavender oil is very versatile and it can be mixed is with many varieties of bases, such as shea butter mixtures, shampoo, conditioners, creams, lotions, etc. When it is mixed with other scalp and hair healthy products, it is ideal for promoting thick, healthy hair growth. It is great at promoting faster hair growth, due to the nutrients it provides to the scalp.

Can Lavender Oil Moisturize Your Hair?

Well to be honest it’s an essential oil so its not great for moisturizing or hydrating our hair, but it is an excellent source of nutriment for our hair and scalp.  Its healing properties are great for keeping our scalp clean and free from irritating scalp conditions, such as dandruff and itchiness. It is also great at keeping Lice away because they do not like the smell of the lavender oil. Lavender Oil is a great way to keep your scalp healthy, which promotes hair growth.

Lavender Oil is Therapeutic for Hair

Lavender oil has therapeutic properties, which is essential for hair growth. When we are anxious, depressed or stressed out we are automatically have a higher chance of experiencing hair loss or hair loss related conditions.  Our psychological state plays a huge role in hair loss. When our body is under stress and pressure it does not function the way it was made to. (Read More Here) The therapeutic properties of Lavender Oil aromatherapy helps to relieve some of the phycological stress and helps to prevent hair loss and hair loss related conditions.  It also helps to promote blood circulation throughout the body (including the scalp), which promotes strong and healthy hair growth.

It promotes hair growth for conditions such as alopecia, so this essential oil became an essential part in my mixture.

7. Tea Tree Oil

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.42.12 AM If you have ever used Tea Tree oil, you know that it has a very strong smell.  I was first introduced to Tea tree oil by my mother in-law years ago.  She would use it mainly as a healing agent for cuts or sores but years later I find it’s also great for my hair.  My mother in-law is known for raiding the herbal stores and coming out with all types of natural healing aids and this is one of them. Anyways, tea tree Oil is great for preventing various scalp issues and aiding in providing beautiful, strong, healthy, and shiny hair and scalp.  It has various natural properties like being an anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral and anti-infection.  It’s anti-everything bad for your hair and skin.

Tea tree oil prevents hair loss and promotes healthy hair growth.  It prevents hair loss by preventing clogged follicles and unblocking hair follicles that are already clogged by removing dead cells allowing the hair follicles to get the nourishment it needs to grow strong, healthy hair.  It is also good at controlling excess oil build up, which inhibits hair growth. It also helps with unblocking ingrown hairs.

Antibacterial and Anti-fungal For Hair Growth

Along with clearing plugged hair follicles it promotes hair growth through its anti-fungal and antibacterial properties by getting rid of, healing and preventing scalp conditions caused by viral and bacterial infections, that inhibit hair growth like, dandruff and psoriasis.  Viral and bacterial infections are largely the cause of a lot of our scalp disorders.

It also helps to stimulate the blood flow to our scalp, delivering valuable nutrients that our body needs to create healthy hair.  

8. Vitamin E For Hair Growth

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.41.58 AM Years ago vitamin E is something that I thought was mainly beneficial for skin but it is also great for hair.  Vitamin E is an antioxidant. Its strong antioxidant properties are helpful in destroying free radicals.  Free radicals damage the hair follicles, which causes hair loss.  So by destroying these free radicles, our body allows a healthy environment to grow and replenish healthy hair that was lost.

 It’s Strength For Your Hair

Vitamin E increases blood circulation in our bodies and repairs damage to the hair follicles, this is important because it encourages healthy hair growth.  By enhancing the blood flow to our scalp, the cells on our head and scalp get more oxygen and nutrients.  This is ideal for new, strong, healthy hair growth.  Strong, healthy hair follicles, increase strong, healthy hair growth.  These added benefits increase hair growth and it reduces hair shedding.

Vitamin E  helps to repair and build the tissue on our scalp and skin, that is caused by scalp and skin related issues. It also helps to reduce inflammation on the scalp caused by these very same skin and scalp conditions (including dandruff and psoriasis).  It moisturizes our scalp and protects our hair from the damage that comes from dry scalp and brittle hair.

Vitamin E also promotes hair growth and it repairs split ends.  This is important in order to achieve longer hair and reduce dryness and damage that cause breakage and hair loss.  It repairs many kinds of damaged hair, leaving it strong, shiny and healthy.  It also protects our hair from damage from the outside environment, including the suns rays , the winter cold, the pollution and debris in the air.

Vitamin E and Male Pattern Baldness

Vitamin E has been said to reverse male pattern baldness in men.  I am not sure if it is only said to work on men, but I put Vitamin E in my shea butter mixture, along with all the other oils with healing properties, and my hair grew back too.  For these reasons, and many others, I decided to put vitamin E in my hair growth regimen, on my hair growth journey.

9. Argan Oil For Hair Growth

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.51.09 AM
From my experience Argan oil is very light and it’s not thick and greasy.  So it’s great as a leave in conditioner to help moisturize your hair.  Argan oil rich in extremely beneficial nutrients for the promotion of healthy hair growth, including fatty acids and Vitamin E, which promotes healthy hair growth.

Antioxidants For Hair Growth

Vitamin E contains antioxidants, which helps to encourage the replenishment of cells, which encourages them to promote and grow, healthy hair.  Argan oil is non toxic, chemical free and non-irritating, making it ideal for all skin types, even those with especially sensitive scalps.

Argan oil can help to stop hair loss by treating underlying scalp conditions that lead to hair loss,  such as seborrhoea (a very oily scalp) dandruff, dermatitis, dry scalp, eczema and many more.  With any kind of skin/scalp condition hair loss is associated because it blocks hair follicles and damages our scalp, causing hair loss and excessive hair shedding.  Argan oil improves scalp and hair health and promotes new, healthy, hair growth.

Along with keeping your hair healthy and strong, it can actually reverses some of the damage that had been previous made to our hair.  If you are suffering from dry, brittle hair or hair damaged caused by using artificial chemicals, dying your hair, or from heat damage caused by using hot hair tools on your hair,  argan oil enriches your hair with nutrients and repairs damage. It is also a great product to use before straightening since it can help protect hair against heat damage.  Argan oil can also aid in treating and preventing breakage and split ends.

It is quickly absorbed into the scalp and hair, so it does not leave build up.  We know if our hair is moisturized is will grow and it will stop hair from becoming dry and brittle and falling out. It is extremely beneficial for our overall scalp and hair because it has the ability to restore softness and strength to our hair. Argan oil promotes softer and stronger, sleek and shiny, more resilient, more elasticity, and more manageability to my hair. That is why I use it in my shea butter mixture, to grow and maintain healthy hair.  

10. Peppermint Oil For Hair Growth

Screen Shot 2015-03-14 at 1.55.36 PM Peppermint oil is a great smelling and great feeling essential oil. The tingling sensation and cooling effect that it has on our scalp can’t be beat by any other essential oil (in my opinion).  I love the minty smell.  It is soothing and calming. The tingling sensation promotes blood circulation to our scalp and it stimulates the hair follicles. This is necessary for the regrowth and promotion of healthy, strong hair. Peppermint oil also has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, which is needed to sooth dry and itchy scalps caused by dandruff and other scalp/skin related conditions.  It is also very effective at keeping lice away. Peppermint oil also helps to absorb excess oils on the scalp and it is a great aid (along with the other oils) to keep hair follicles clean and clear. It is very effective at moisturizing a dry scalp and promoting over hair health and growth.    **Please Note- When I say Healthy Hair, I am in no way indication that our hair is alive and that it can either be “sick or healthy”. It is just a term that I use to describe the state of our hair. For a lack of better descriptive words, I use the word health or healthy hair.***
