Lavender oil is part of this list because its an antibacterial agent which means it gets rid of bacteria on the scalp so that the pores can breathe and thus blood can circulate to the scalp and your hair to grow.

3. Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is popular due to the ease it can be combined and mixed with other essential and carrier oils, and also because of its ability to produce solid results in terms of hair growth, improving dry or damaged hair conditions. Jojoba works well as a hair conditioner because the oil itself helps to nourish dry hair and thus prevents breakage.

I have used just about every oil listed in your article and I agree you don't have to spend tons of money to attain a healthy head of hair and achieve hair growth. For my hair, I focus on the healthy aspect of it rather than the growth aspect because, in my humble opinion, growth will come if your hair is healthy. I LOVE the natural look. Thanks for sharing your tips!
