I already had Mielle Organics Mint & Rosemary Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil on hand for this little experiment. For starters, I love that this oil is designed for those with coarse, curly, and textured hair types, which describes my own hair in a nutshell. Although recently enjoying a resurgence in popularity thanks to TikTok, this oil has been around for a minute. I’ve used it in the past from time to time to help with breakage during birth control, but never really committed to using it regularly. This time I decided to use it daily for a few weeks to see if I noticed any difference in hair growth.
Overall I noticed a bit of growth, but honestly it wasn’t enough to be substantial or dramatic – that’s why I haven’t included any photos here. My hair is also extremely curly so growth can be hard to see unless I straighten it. What I really liked about the oil was how soft it left my hair after using it. It also tamed flyaways quite well and I felt a bit more confident wearing my natural curls to run errands. Depending on the brand, it can also be used as a treatment for split ends, so I’ve experienced it that way as well. On that front, I really noticed an improvement. Although I only used it for a few weeks before I sat down to write this, I think with continued use the results would absolutely be there.
I mostly decided to use it regularly after my curiosity got the better of me, I don’t necessarily want to grow my hair super long, but I will continue to use it three to four times a week in the coming months. My hair also felt stronger and I noticed less hair in the brush since adding this to my routine. Basically, if you’re looking to grow out your hair, I really think it’s worth a try. Results vary from person to person, but I think if you have the patience and use it regularly, you’ll definitely notice that it helps increase your hair growth rate over time.
