This DIY Hair Growth Spray is the PERFECT solution for thinning hair or for someone trying to grow healthier hair. Of course we use the best essential oils to stimulate hair growth but also include essential oils and pure minerals to nourish and clean the scalp.
Truthfully, we started making this hair growth spray when Evan started balding. GASSSSP! I know, it was truly a horrifying time for him. He would agonize in the mirror as the bald spot in the back of his head started to get worse and worse.
He was going through a lot of stress at the time with work and flying to the Philippines almost every single month. The stress combined with travel food was just enough to activate the genetic tendency of balding (his dad is bald in the back of his head too).
We tried several things to get the hair loss under control. However nothing seemed to work until we stumbled across a version of the recipe we have today, shared by one of our friends in Singapore.
When Evan learned about the hair growth spray, he was SO ENCOURAGED! We went to work immediately and whipped up the blend. We've since made a few tweaks, to optimize results. We LOVE this recipe and continue to use it every single day.
THE WHOLE HAIR GROWTH TRUTH
We do DIY Hair Growth Spray EVERY single day when getting out of the shower. For accelerated growth, you can do a second application in the day if you’d like. For us, we shower in the morning. When Evan was really working hard to get results, we followed that up with an evening time application before bed.
The spray smells AMAZING, so I didn’t mind breathing it in when getting into bed.

ENHANCE RESULTS WITH VITAMINS
Evan and I are huge fans of taking daily supplements. The Life Long Vitality Pack by doTERRA is our top recommended supplement because the ingredients are high quality, readily absorbable and give us noticeable results with healthier hair and nails.
The vitamins contain therapeutic doses of Biotin, Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. All these vitamins are key nutrients for the body to build healthy hair.
DIY HAIR GROWTH SPRAY
Making your own hair growth serum spray is so simple. You will be blown away by how well it works. We use the 5 most tested essential oils for hair growth too!
If you have thinning hair or just slow-growing hair, you will definitely appreciate the brilliance of this spray!
Not only will it help to stimulate hair growth, but it will also detox your scalp, lessen dandruff and help thicken and strengthen damaged hair.
For this recipe you will need:
- -Tea Tree
- Filtered Water
- 2 oz. Spray Bottle
For our Hair Growth Serum we chose the top 5 based on the research we did. This unique combination of oils works to balance the oil producing glands in the scalp, stimulates hair follicles to produce hair, cleans and purifies the scalp, balances the microbiome of the scalp and helps to stimulate blood circulation.
All of these elements work together to help slow hair loss and trigger healthy hair growth!
THE HAIR GROWTH ESSENTIAL OILS
Peppermint: Peppermint essential oil leaves a cool, tingling feeling and increases circulation. This increase promotes hair growth during the anagen (growing) phase of hair growth.
Peppermint may increase the number of follicles, follicle depth, and overall hair growth.
Tea Tree: Tea tree oil has powerful cleansing and microbiome balancing properties. Topically it helps unplug hair follicles and increase hair growth. Also, if you suffer from dandruff or flakey scalp, Tea Tree helps the immune system in the skin attack and remove the bad bugs so that your scalp skin can become healthy again.
A 2013 study found that a mixture containing tea tree oil and minoxidil (more commonly known as Rogaine) was more effective than just the minoxidil alone in improving hair growth!
Lavender: Studies show that Lavender essential oil speeds up hair growth and reduces stress. Stress has long been known to cause hair thinning, so this essential oil packs a double punch to hair loss!
It also has microbiome balancing properties, which can improve scalp health and reduce itching.
Rosemary: Rosemary promotes nerve growth & improves circulation. It’s been shown to stimulate hair growth, prevent premature graying and prevent dandruff.
I found a study that compared Rosemary essential oil & minoxidil, commonly known as Rogaine on patients with male pattern baldness. Results showed that rosemary essential oil was just as effective as minoxidil in stimulating hair growth. The study also showed that Rosemary was more effective at preventing itchy scalp.
Cedarwood: Cedarwood essential oil promotes hair growth and reduces hair loss by balancing the oil-producing glands in the scalp. It also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which help cut down dandruff or hair loss.
One study I found showed a mixture with lavender and rosemary, cedarwood extract reduce hair loss in people with alopecia areata.
THE HAIR GROWTH MINERALS
CT Minerals: CT Minerals detoxes the scalp and gives your follicles the minerals it needs to grow new hair. We consider this a bonus add-on since it wasn’t a part of the original formula, but it definitely enhances results.
We also use the CT Minerals in at least one glass of water each day, to replenish cells and deliver minerals, fulvic and humic acids to the body. This also works to develop healthy hair from an internal level.

HOW TO MAKE THE DIY HAIR GROWTH SPRAY
- In a 2oz Spray Bottle add 10 drops each of the following essential oils:
-Bonus: 10 drops CT Minerals
- Fill the spray bottle the rest of the way with water.
- Shake well before each use.
NOTE: It’s best to use a glass or stainless steel spray bottle. This is because pure essential oils can dissolve certain plastics overtime. You can shop a few of our favorite essential oil safe spray bottles in our shop.
HOW TO USE DIY HAIR GROWTH SPRAY
It’s best to use this spray right when you get out of the shower. Towel dry your hair then spray 3-4 sprays into the roots of your hair. Massage gently into scalp. Brush hair and style as usual.
This spray won’t leave your hair looking or feeling greasy at all! In fact, if you add the CT Minerals, you’ll notice a nice all-natural root lift. This is particularly appreciated by women with thin hair like myself. I used to always have to buy volumizing spray. However with this spray, I find that I no longer need it!
HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
For best results, use 1-2 times daily. Also, be sure to remain consistent. I always suggest giving the body enough time to turn over 100% of its red blood cells. This is between 100-120 day. Give the body 3.5-4 months using the spray. You’ll be happy you stuck with it!
