I experiment a lot when it comes to taking care of my skin and hair. Since the day I started using 100% organic or natural ingredients for my hair , the quality of my hair started changing a lot for good , especially there is a huge noticeable difference in the texture. My hair had always been thin which is why I used to chop my hair off as soon as it grew till my shoulders.

Trying a variety of organic oils in my hair packs , oils and conditioners have made the texture of my hair really thick and guess what the speed of my hair growth is beyond amazing now.

  1. Lovely post Aarushi!! Extremely informative! I use a blend of oils at present that contains olive oil as carrier oil along with rosemary, lavender, peppermint and argan essential oils that is being very effective! Would you suggest using this regularly?

    1. Hi Swetha. Thank you so much. Yes it is completely fine to use this blend regularly. Also, argan oil is a carrier oil so you can add more quantity of this oil as well.

    1. Hey Archana. Yes they both can offer their own benefits to the hair but in comparison to the oils mentioned in the list they are not much effective. They will surely help to soothe dry and itchy scalp but not too effective in hair growth. But yes add it to your oil if you want to relieve headache or stress.

  2. Great 👍👍 mujhy Jojoba n grapeseed oil bahut pasand hai kyunki ye hairs k liye kaafi help karta hai 👍👍
