DIY hair growth serum

1. Get ingredients together

First, take some carrot-infused oil. This oil is made with olive oil, which has great benefits for your hair - it's full of a mono-saturated fat that penetrates very deeply into your hair shaft. It also helps to close out split ends.

The second oil we’re going to use is Moroccan argan oil, which helps to make your hair softer, silky, and shinier. It's a great hair conditioner, and it also helps with split ends and taming frizzy hair.

The third oil is Jamaican castor oil, which helps with hair growth and also with hydration. It contains a lot of Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids and a lot of Vitamin E.

Lastly, we’re going to add some carrot seed essential oil, which will help to boost the keratin effect.

Carrot seed essential oil is also full of vitamin A and vitamin E and helps with humidity retention for your scalp and hair. It's a great conditioner for the hair, and it prevents split ends and breakage.

Mixing oils

2. Combine ingredients

Place a funnel on top of your bottle and fill half of it with carrot-infused oil.

Then, fill a quarter with argan oil and another about ⅛ of the bottle with castor oil.

Finish by adding 10 drops of essential oil. Any space that you have left, you can fill up with carrot-infused oil.

Shake the bottle to combine all the ingredients.

Applying oil to hair

3. Apply the oil

If you’re looking to repair your hair from damage such as bleach or heat, I recommend using the oil as a mask.

Put it on the lengths of your hair after washing and conditioning your hair, and then let it sit for at least 30 minutes.

If you're looking to grow your hair, apply it on your scalp, again on freshly cleaned hair.

Deeply massage the oil into your hair for around 10-20 minutes. Let it sit on your hair and infuse in your scalp.

You can also wear a shower cap when you’re letting it sit if you like.

Let all the nutrients get into your skin, and then rinse it off.

I personally do this second treatment once a week, and I see great results after rinsing it out.

My hair feels healthier and rejuvenated, and the overall appearance looks much better. Give this serum a try for yourself, and let me know what you think!
