Oregano oil hair growth?
I have heard about oregano oil how it's good for the scalp and how oregano oil helps with hair growth. Can any experts talk about this a little and if the claim holds any truth and whatnot?

RE: Oregano oil hair growth?
The herb oregano has historically been used for its health benefits and medicinal qualities. The oil of oregano is extracted from the dried flowers by a steam distillation process. Pure oregano oil is used in a variety of home remedies for issues such as indigestion, sore throats, sinus congestion and is now believed to encourage hair growth and help to battle hair loss (similar to how is also achieved by tea tree oil).

Hair Benefits:

Pure oregano oil addresses and eradicates scalp problems such as inflammation, dandruff and sweat. It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial in nature. If you have very little strand fallout, along with good hygiene and maintenance practices, it is believed that your hair will be able to grow at an accelerated pace.

I have used oregano oil in the past and I did notice some benefits, including what looked like slightly faster-growing and stronger hair.

When to use:

Use weekly or bi-weekly as a part of hair and scalp cleansing regimen. If you are being challenged with hair loss, balding, dandruff, head lice, scabies or inflammation of the scalp, you may want to especially consider using pure oil of oregano.

How to use:

Create a topical hair/scalp rub for general maintenance to avoid hair loss and promote maximum scalp health. Mix with other oils, as pure, undiluted oregano oil can be a skin irritant. It is recommended that you dilute with carrier oil at a ratio of one to four. Add a few drops of pure oregano oil per tablespoon of shampoo to get rid of scalp infections or dandruff. If you are creating a topical ointment, you should use one ounce of pure oregano oil in four ounces of coconut oil on clean scalp.

Once hair has been washed and conditioned, part your hair row by row and massage oil mixture into scalp for best results. If your scalp is particularly sensitive, dilute mixture to a more comfortable ratio and rub in. If you desire, you may rinse entire head after 10 to 15 minutes, as the smell may be strong even after dilution.


You may substitute coconut oil with any other nourishing carrier oil such as olive oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil or avocado oil.

You may also add ingredients such as pure aloe vera gel and/or vitamin E oil to your hair and scalp ointment for a super-enriched application for hair health.


Always follow the instructions on your particular bottle before applying topically or using in conjunction with other oils.

Avoid taking regularly during pregnancy, since oil of oregano is purported to reduce the body's ability to absorb iron. Consult your doctor at all times before taking anything new, even though oregano oil is a benign and health oil to use on your scalp.

You can get oregano oil very cheap from Amazon by the way. IN fact you can get other oils like coconut oil from Amazon at the lowest prices around too.
