Is this DIY home-remedy the secret to long hair?

A recent DIY home-remedy to give long, silky hair is trending. The author of the method states it’s a tried and true old Indian method that’s been passed down generations.
Reviewers and followers of the method swear by its success and have pictures as proof. Many individuals have seen a 30% increase in hair growth after just 1 or 2 months of regular use.
The routine is simple: all you have to do is get your hands on an aloe vera leaf, castor oil, coconut oil, and vitamin E capsules. These products can be found at an organic supermarket or drug store.
While we haven’t tried the method ourselves, there is promising evidence of the success of vitamin E and warm oil on hair growth and overall hair health.
We give it our safe stamp of approval and encourage you to try this all-natural method for hair growth and let us know how it works!
Step 1. Cut open an aloe vera leaf. Rub the gel all over the scalp.
Step 2. Combine 1-2 tbsp of castor oil, coconut oil, and the contents of 1 vitamin E capsule in a small bowl.
Step 3. Place the small bowl of oil inside a larger bowl filled with hot water. This warms up the oil.
Step 4. After the oil mixture is warm (takes about 4-5 mins) massage it into entire scalp. This promotes circulation and encourages hair growth and absorption. Do this for 4-5 minutes.
Step 5. Let soak in hair overnight. If you have long hair, put it in a tight braid. If you have short hair you may want to wear a shower cap to bed to protect linens.
Step 6. Wake up and wash the oil out. This method should be utilized 4-5 times a week for maximum results. Results should be evident after 2 months of continued use.

Hot oil massage for hair growth

Hot oil treatments are the latest at-home hair care trend. Oils such as coconut, olive, or jojoba are warmed and then massaged into the scalp.
According to regular users of hot oil scalp treatments, the oil nourishes hair, moisturizes hair, relieves scalp problems, and stimulates hair growth.
But how does it work?
Oils provide much needed nutrients to the hair. When hair is nourished, it is healthier and more likely to grow.
In addition, the motion of massaging the oil into the scalp increases blood flow and circulation to the scalp and follicles. This also increases the rate of growth.
The benefits of hot oil scalp massages range from treating dandruff to fungus. Make sure to research which oils target which hair ailments, so you can make the most effective concoction for you.
