Do Hair Growth Oils Really Work or Are They A Scam?

There has been a debacle on social media as to whether your hard earned money should be sent on purchasing growth oils. There is a narrative that the oils are all a "marketing" ploy which do not provide any benefits to your hair. As a hair care business, we are here to debunk the narrative trending on social media. Bask and Lather sells hair products that will aid you in achieving your hair goals especially hair growth. From our scalp stimulator, our business has been born and continues to see significant growth year on year. Regardless, our mission still  remains as we are the #1 products for hair loss and healthy hair growth.

Understanding the Basics of Hair Growth:

Before dissecting the effectiveness of hair growth oils, it's crucial to understand the natural hair growth cycle. Hair growth occurs in three main phases:

  • anagen (growth phase), 
  • then catagen (transition phase),
  • and telogen (resting phase).

Each hair follicle goes through this cycle independently.


The Role of Hair Growth Oils:

Hair growth oils typically contain a combination of essential oils, carrier oils, and sometimes additional herbal extracts. These oils nourish the scalp, strengthen hair strands, and stimulate follicles, leading to accelerated hair growth.

Bask and Lather Scalp Stimulator Scalp Oil:
Our Scalp Stimulator formula is natural, made with cold pressed oils, and infused with rosemary and mint along with other vital ingredients to stimulate hair growth with regular use! Our hair growth stimulant is rich in omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids. They provide vital nutrients to nourish your scalp and increase blood circulation to hair follicles. Therefore, allowing the scalp to function as it should in producing hair growth as well as the sebum needed to coat it. Additional benefits of the oil include:

  • Calms an irritation scalp to reduce itching, flakes, etc
  • Eliminates dandruff
  • Strengthens hair and restores natural shine and vibrancy

Does it work or is it a scam?
The evidence supporting the effectiveness of these oils is often limited within the scientific sphere. Bask and Lather started a few years ago when the CEO of Bask and Lather Co's younger sister lost ALL of her hair to a ringworm that spread across her scalp and was misdiagnosed as dandruff. The dermatologist told her mother that her hair may never grow back after months of having a smooth, shiny scalp. Out of desperation, her mother took things into her own hands and created a scalp oil to stimulate growth (Scalp Stimulator) and a hair oil to nourish and strengthen hair. 

From the reviews and feedbacks that we have received from customers (including you), we know that it works! Our scalp stimulating oil has transformed individuals lives by growing their hair to their desired length, regrowing a bald spot, increasing the thickness of their hair, and so much more. We received multiple messages from customers letting us know how the oil has helped their hair. The messages will be from mothers, women, and even men! We are truly grateful for the impact that the bask and lather scalp stimulating oil has on each and everyone of our customers.
