Do you know how to use neem oil for hair growth? I’m looking for a cheap natural way to make my hair stronger and longer. It’s been breaking off because it’s dried out from a bad dye job.

Sure, I can tell you how to use neem oil to grow your hair back stronger and longer. There are two easy ways you can add it to your normal hair care routine. Both treatments moisturize both dry hair and scalp, tame frizz, and repair split ends.
The first method is to mix three or four drops of neem oil with your shampoo. Wash your hair as usual, but let the shampoo sit for a few minutes on your hair before rinsing it. You can do this every day if you like.
The second way how to use neem oil for hair is to combine it with a carrier oil like almond or coconut. You may wish to add a few drops of an essential oil with a pleasant scent, like peppermint. Massage this into your scalp and let it work overnight before you wash your hair. It turns out that you only need to do this once a week to get results.
Equally important, neem oil can do a lot more than simply repair hair. It calms down itchy skin caused by psoriasis, and it cures dandruff. Also, it keeps mosquitoes away and gets rid of head lice.
Furthermore, there are so many more uses of neem oil you may find interesting. You can apply neem oil to your pets to get rid of fleas and ticks or treat skin infections. And it also kills garden pests like spider mites.
