Infusing beneficial herbs in oil allows harnessing the powerful properties of herbs in a format that can deeply penetrate hair follicles. But how do you properly infuse herbs in oils to create hair-boosting blends?
How to Infuse Herbs in Oil for Hair Growth
To infuse hair-healthy herbs like rosemary, lavender and thyme in oil, pack chopped herbs tightly into a jar, cover with oil, then allow to steep 2-6 weeks before straining and using on your scalp and strands.
Select Your Herbs
Research hair-supporting herbs like rosemary, lavender, green tea, celery seed, amla or stinging nettle.
Chop Herbs Finely
Using a knife or herb grinder, chop dried herbs into tiny pieces to maximize infusion.
Pack Jar Tightly
Really pack chopped herbs tightly into the infusion jar - this increases potency.
Cover with Oil
Pour oil like coconut, almond, olive or jojoba over the herbs until they’re fully submerged.
Steep 2-6 Weeks
Allow infusion to steep at least 2 weeks, up to 6 weeks for stronger effect.
Tips for the Best Herbal Hair Oil Infusion
Follow these tips for optimizing the infusion process:
Use a Small Jar
A smaller jar makes it easier to fully pack in the chopped herbs.
Shake or turn the mixture gently every day to prevent settling.
Keep in Dark Spot
Sunlight can degrade herbs - store in a cool, dark place as it infuses.
Watch for Visual Cues
Herb pieces darkening and oil taking on stronger scent and color indicate infusion is working.
When done, pour through cheesecloth and press herbs to extract all precious oil.
Types of Oils to Use for Hair Growth Infusions
The best carrier oils for infusing hair herbs include:
Penetrates follicles and protects from protein loss.
Rich in vitamins and fatty acids that nourish hair.
Hydrates hair and repairs damage from styling.
Thick oil that coats strands to prevent breakage.
Sweet Almond Oil
Softens hair while controlling dandruff.
Making Herbal Hair Oil Recipes
Combine 2-3 complementing herbs like rosemary, thyme and lavender to capitalize on their synergistic benefits for optimal hair health and growth.
