Waiting for your hair to grow is like watching paint dry—except worse. Paint will dry in, well, approximately a few hours. Hair, depending on the damage and length, could take months (if not years) to grow to your desired length. Trust me, I’ve been waiting for my hair to grow back from a less-than-stellar haircut for over a year.
Of course, there are things you can do. Celebrity colorist Matt Rez, who works out of Mèche Salon in Beverly Hills, offers helpful advice like masking with Olaplex’s Hair Perfector No. 3 ($28), Shu Uemura’s Ultimate Remedy Extreme Restoration Treatment ($68), and using a Tangle Teezer Original Detangling Hairbrush ($15) to gently brush your hair and avoid breakage. And guess what? It works. However, if you’re in search of a more natural option (we hear you), you can rely on trusty essential oils to get the job done as well. To find out more, we reached out to Sara Panton, the co-founder of Vitruvi and an essential oil guru whose knowledge and products we trust implicitly. Below find her best hair regrowth advice.
