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.

Gently Agitate

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.

Strain Well

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:

Coconut Oil

Penetrates follicles and protects from protein loss.

Avocado Oil

Rich in vitamins and fatty acids that nourish hair.

Argan Oil

Hydrates hair and repairs damage from styling.

Castor Oil

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.
