6 Best Natural Ingredients to Stimulate Hair Growth

Always wanted to have long and luscious hair but no matter what you try nothing seems to make a difference? It’s time to do your research and invest in products with hair-growing natural ingredients.

Gone are the days of relying on harsh chemicals that can actually do more harm to your hair than good. Bring your hair back to its natural healthy state and start using the right ingredients - here are our top picks for the best natural hair growth ingredients on the market.

Rosemary Oil

Not only will rosemary oil make your hair smell amazing, but it can also stimulate hair growth.

Take one look at hair-tok and you’ll see rosemary oil is a crowd favourite among hair-growth enthusiasts. And it’s not all viral videos either - studies cited by the NLM show results of rosemary helping those with Alopecia to stimulate hair growth.

There has also been further research into using rosemary oil to mirror the same effect on hair as hair growth medication. Rosemary oil comes without the nasty potential side effects hair growth medication does, so investing in a rosemary oil-infused hair care product certainly sounds like the better option in our book!

Rosemary oil can increase the blood flow to your scalp which stimulates your hair follicles and promotes hair growth. The hair-growing properties in Rosemary oil are compounds that contain antioxidants, as well as antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Gaining a fuller longer head of hair is one thing, but increasing shine and luscious-factor is another; as rosemary oil can also help with the appearance and quality of your hair.

We offer an exclusive range of hair care products, with many rosemary oil-infused options from shampoos, to root enhancers.


Biotin is a vitamin that is found in foods such as eggs and milk. This vitamin helps turn the food you consume into energy and also produces keratin, the protein that hair is made of.

If you are deficient in biotin, it can lead to hair loss or thinning, as you don’t have enough keratin in your system.

By using biotin-infused shampoos, you can potentially enhance your production of keratin which will help your hair to grow.

Coconut Oil

One of the best ingredients for helping grow your hair faster, coconut oil is a holy grail ingredient when it comes to hair care.

Not only does it stimulate hair growth, but it also helps repair split ends and scalp infections. Repairing your split ends doesn’t make your hair grow faster but it does help improve your overall hair growth which helps to keep your hair length.



No longer just an ingredient to wake you up in the morning, caffeine is also great for hair growth.

Caffeine has been shown to enlarge your hair follicles, and lengthen the growth phase, which is key for longer hair. You cannot make more hair follicles, but you can lengthen the amount of time your hair stays on your head. When your hair falls out, the follicle goes into a rest phase and won’t grow another hair until its rest phase is over. That’s why caffeine is key - the longer your hair stays on your head, the longer your hair has the chance to get.

Caffeine is a stimulant which also can have an impact on the blood circulation around your hair follicles, helping the hair grow faster and stronger, which will leave your hair looking full and voluminous.

Protein Shampoo

Protein shampoo is a convenient and efficient way of treating your hair. The shampoo is packed with vital proteins that help boost your hair growth, and can be applied easily without the hassle of using multiple different products, to enrich your hair with the same amount of proteins.

Packing in a whole lot of those vital proteins that help boost your hair growth into a shampoo creates a convenient and efficient way of treating your hair.

 The key hair-growing proteins and ingredients to look out for:

  • Hydrolysed Quinoa Protein
  • Soy Protein
  • Keratin
  • Collagen
  • Amino Acids


Aloe vera

Aloe vera is a fantastic ingredient to help your hair grow, and stop excessive hair fall. Aloe vera has a chemical compound called Aloenin which washes away dead skin cells, leaving you with a healthy scalp and a healthy scalp gives your hair the best chance for growth.

Aloe vera also contains proteolytic enzymes that work to improve hair growth and prevent hair breakage.

Other methods to improve hair growth

As well as using the right ingredients, there are a few key techniques you can try to help stimulate hair growth: 

  • Scalp massages
    Scalp massages can stimulate blood flow to the scalp and help improve hair growth.
  • Staying away from heat
    Using hair styling tools such as straighteners and curlers aren’t the best for your hair, as it can damage your hair and cause breakage. If you have to use a heated styling tool make sure to use a heat protectant spray, and if you can lower the temperature on your styling tool.
  • Try and reduce your stress
    High stress levels can actually cause hair loss as it triggers your hair follicles to prematurely enter the resting period. So try not to get wound up, if you want to get a healthy head of hair.
