The results of one research study suggest that the essential oils of thyme, rosemary, lavender, and cedar wood mixed with oil and applied on the areas of hair loss may stimulate hair growth. This double-blind, placebo-controlled study enrolled 84 people who massaged either these essential oils or a non-treatment oil into their scalps each night for seven months. Results showed that 44% of people in the treatment group had new hair growth compared to only 15% in the control group.
Here are some of the best essential oils for hair loss including hair loss recipes to stimulate hair growth.
