10 Best Hair Growth Oils and Serums for Black Hair


by Nina King

While we wish we could guarantee that these hair oils will grow you thick and healthy hair overnight, it’s just not possible. The hair growth process takes patience and time, which is why on average our hair will grow a half-inch per month. If that’s not the number you were hoping for, don’t be discouraged! Even though these hair oils can’t speed up the hair growth process, they promote healthy hair which leads to growth and length retention. That’s the key.

 To get you started, we’ve gathered some of the best hair oils and serums that will lead to a healthy head of hair. If you’ve started on your own hair oil search, here are specific ingredients you should be looking for: castor oil, Jamaican black castor oil, avocado oil, sunflower seed oil, argan oil, and jojoba oil. If these ingredients are present, you’re on your way to growing healthy hair.
