Apparently arnica will promote hair growth and controls dandruff. I haven't tried it yet but it has wonderful reviews.

There are many essential oils mixed with a carrier oil that will promote hair growth. It take time (as much as 4 month to notice new growth) but they do work.

please be careful with arnica, it can poison you if you have a scratch or an open wound.

I was loosing hair at an alarming rate so I started using castor oil, which helped tremendously. Also, a friend of mine applied raw onion paste on her hair which also offered great results. I wasn't aware of the second remedy but I must admit that it helped her regrow hair.

Herbal remedies improve circulation, disinfect the scalp and stimulate hair growth.
