Much like the hair masks you probably buy at the store, those products can contain chemicals that essentially are horrible for your hair, and in turn making the deep repair hair mask you are using basically ineffective. Or it’s just not going to do the job you really want, and in the end will require the use of more products and take much longer to see results.
I’ve been researching and experimenting lately using all natural oils (yes, ones you could use in a oil burner to make your home smell amazing). There are so many out there, and all of them do wonderfully different things for your hair.
A company called Hair Loss Evolution share the same beliefs in using natural hair oil to stimulate and promote hair growth. Their product, called Wild Growth Hair Oil, guarantees 95% of growth results in as little as 60 days. And the ingredients are all natural oils. Read more about the 9 Ingredients of Wild Growth Hair Oil.
So, if you’re having a tough time managing your strands or promoting hair growth – natural is the way to go – since most consumer products out there tend to have chemicals that just counteract the main growth and nurturing ingredients.

How our hair looks, feels & grows is primarily determined by:
- the products you use
- activities (swimming/perming/dyeing/heat styling)
- & more
Now, you only need to apply these oils to your hair dependent upon the type of hair you currently have. That is your first step in determining the type of oil you should use for your hair. If you are not sure what type of hair you have, I have conducted a way for you to be able to figure out down to the detail the hair type you most currently have. Your hair in the most natural state is freshly dried after a wash. Take note as to what the texture of your hair is like – all the way from the scalp to the ends – the look of your hair scalp to ends and the feel of your strands scalp to ends.
When you have determined your hair type based on the three listed below, each type will give you a solid list of recommended oils specifically balanced to your hair type. These oils should only be used like you would a face mask, about once or twice a week maximum. But here’s a little trick I have done with this knowledge:
Since I personally tend to steer more towards dry hair, I will usually add a couple drops of Lavender and Castor oil to my favorite hair styling product to benefit from the natural oils each day. And still once a week deep treat my hair with the oils.
