Homemade Hair Growth Serum

Many personal care products contain a laundry list of ingredients that can be difficult to pronounce, let alone understand. Unfortunately, many of these products are loaded with harmful chemicals and toxic substances.

For instance, silicones, commonly found in hair care products, may give the appearance of healthy, smooth hair. However, what many don’t realize is that silicone often coats the hair shaft, clogs follicles, and seals out moisture, ultimately leading to dull or dry hair over time.

Achieving beautiful, lustrous hair isn’t always straightforward. Factors such as diet, environmental elements, and excessive heat styling can all take a toll on our hair’s health.

So, what’s the solution to avoid these potentially harmful substances and promote long-term hair health? Consider making your own DIY hair products.

In my experience, homemade hair treatments have proven to be more effective than their commercially bought counterparts. They offer a way to minimize our exposure to toxins while nourishing our hair naturally.

One such DIY recipe is a hair growth serum, which requires:

  • ½ cup of castor oil
  • ½ cup of coconut oil
  • 8-10 drops of rosemary essential oil


  1. Using a glass or bottle container, mix the castor oil, coconut oil, and rosemary oil.
  2. Apply the oil mixture onto your scalp, massaging it for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Ensure you cover and massage your entire scalp. Leave the serum on for an hour, or ideally, overnight.
  4. Rinse with tepid water and shampoo as usual.
  5. Store the mixture in a dry, dark place and use this routine 2-3 times a week for optimal results.

Benefits of these ingredients:

  • Castor oil contains omega-6 essential fatty acids that promote blood circulation, encouraging hair growth. It also strengthens roots, nourishes the scalp, and protects hair follicles from shedding.
  • Coconut oil’s natural lipid structure allows it to penetrate deeply into hair roots, stimulating growth, nourishing follicles, and reducing frizz, resulting in a healthy shine.
  • Rosemary essential oil promotes hair growth, improves circulation, prevents premature graying, and helps control dandruff.

By incorporating this DIY hair growth serum into your routine, you can nourish your hair naturally and avoid the potentially harmful effects of commercial products.
