DIY Scalp Oil. This mix of these 2 oils greatly helps GROW hair faster, helps with thinning hair and helps prevent hair loss! I used this mix a few years ago when I grew my hair out (my thumbnail photo) and am now starting to use it again to grow my hair longer after cutting it. I mix equal parts of castor oil (look for cold pressed, hexane free, unrefined) with onion seed oil in a amber glass bottle with a dropper (this is how I like to mix and store it). Castor oil is well known for hair growth and is rich in fatty acids. Onion oil is rich in sulfur which is a building block for hair. Both these oils are antibacterial, antifungal and both help to stimulate new hair growth. I also like to add about 5 drops of rosemary oil to the mix in order to mask the scent of onion and rosemary also stimulates the hair follicles for new growth as well. I warm my oil under hot water and spray my scalp with a little water to help with better absorption of the oil into the scalp. Then I apply a few drops directly onto my scalp all over my head, parting my hair as I go. I massage the oil into my scalp for a good 3 to 5 minutes and then I leave it on my scalp for at least an hour or more, sometimes overnight. I do not put the oil all over my hair, but only on the scalp. I like to use a lavender mint shampoo to wash out the oil (this also stimulates the scalp) and follow that with a neem conditioner which promotes healthy scalp and hair. This is great for men or women!

superWowstyle inspired on diy hair growth. I wanted to share how I grew my hair out and what I am using now to grow it again after having it shoulder length for a year.


  1. * I have written all of the information along with links to products in the description box of this video (just click the show more or upside down triangle under the video). xoxo

  2. How do you shampoo the oil out of your hair/scalp, especially the castor oil. I’m finding it almost impossible to wash out. It’s very thick

  3. Oils make my hair come out more. I've tried caster, coconut, olive and on & on (all organic). My hair sheds more straight after & for a few days. Any other tips apart from oils? I'm always searching as I have thinning hair for years & it's very demoralising. Much appreciated x

  4. I found this video of yours after i had purchased grande lashes for $65. I had no clue that Castor oil and onion seed oil could help the growth of hair. I’ve been using rogaine which hasn’t done anything that i can tell for my hair. So mixing up equal parts of those and rub into scalp for about 5 minutes, and do that every night. How long does it take to see results? Think I’ll purchased the rosemary as well. Sounds like it would be better to wash the hair first, so that when you have the scalp wet, you apply this mixer on when it is wet. What do you think? Oh he is the mint shampoo good for color treated hair?

  5. Hi Anne -. Would someone with a sulfur allergy be able to use onion seed oil or is there something else I could use along with castor oil? Thank you!
    Lynn W 😃

  6. I take Biotin 500 mgs your hair and nails will grow like crazy.but I definetlu want to try the castor oil.

  7. Thanks Have a wonderful weekend I will try and have big hope that would work for me

  8. Hello Anne I did watch this video and want to give it a try I think should work Did you have hard time to wash it out oil I try castor oil a few times but it so sticky and doesn’t feel clean after I wash my hair Love your make up Very natural Thanks Anne have a blessing weekend

  9. Sorry, I spelt Anne wrong.

  10. Hi Ann Marie,

    Thank you so much for all your advice. I have been using unrefined cold pressed castor oil on my eyebrows for 3 months and wow new brows. I'm also working on the hair thickening oils so I'll let you know.
    Another lady I follow is Gio, she has a website called Beautiful with Brains and she is so helpful, she aids with navigating through the product showiing us what active ingredients are effective and safe and ones not to bother with. Thank you once again

  11. Your hair sure has grown from the last video I watched about trimming your own hair.
    Have a beautiful day everybody 😘

  12. Love that color lipstick!!Can you share?

  13. Your videos are always super helpful 👍😙😙😙😙❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️

  14. Mother put that mess on my hair when I was a child only she used a real onion

  15. Do you think this would help with a male receding hairline?

  16. Hi I have been using this mixture on my hair before washing for several months now. I apply it all around my hairline and on to my hair and then comb it through. I am seeing new growth at the hairline! My hairdresser also said she saw a lot of new growth! Yay!!! After losing weight last summer I found that my hair was feeling thin especially at my hairline. I am so relieved it is looking better. And it’s very moisturized. I use a little peppermint oil instead of the rosemary. Thanks so much for your great ideas!

  17. You look better and better every time I see you 😇

  18. Hi I am loving your videos for the "older-younger" woman!! How does your hair smell after using the conditioner? Does it have a lingering smell? Or pretty much disappear after you rinse?

  19. I have really been going through a shedding stage (I hope that's all this is) and have been trying plain castor oil on my scalp, but will definitely try this recipe. Thank you!!

  20. Are youusing Onion Oil or Onion Seed Oil? I am led to believe those are two different things.

  21. I truly believe the reason for hair loss is from inside. Wether it be a slow thyroid or your Adrenials.
