Wild Hair Growth Oil Review

Wild Hair Growth Oil
I purchased the Wild Hair Growth Oil a month ago because I’ve noticed that this rather expensive oil has been advertised in the back of most black magazines claiming that it will grow your hair long beyond any length you’ve ever achieved. The company that manufactures the Wild Hair Growth Oil makes a lot of wild claims so my initial research was that of the company’s website. As I read through the tons of testimonies from the women I noticed that the hair growth that they achieved was actually nothing more than the average hair growth they would’ve achieved if they cared for their hair properly. With that assumption I decided to test this oil out myself. After visiting several beauty supply stores I found a store that sold the oil for $7.99. Most stores sell this oil for almost $10!

As I began to use the oil I kept a log of my hair growth and how my hair felt as I used the oil. The very first thing I noticed about this oil was it did not contain an ingredients list so you really don’t know what you’re putting in your hair. As you may know I pay very close attention to the ingredients in a product so I can know what is going into my hair and the lack of an ingredients list is very displeasing to me. The next thing that I noticed was how thick and smelly the oil actually is. It doesn’t smell very good at all and when it comes time to shampoo the hair, I have to shampoo twice to get as much of the oil out as I can – another displeasing factor.

The bottle says to apply the oil to the scalp. I do not believe in putting anything on my scalp, but I did just to accurately complete this review. Here is a record of my hair growth log using the Wild Hair Growth Oil:

Q: Does Wild Hair Growth Oil make the hair grow faster?

Fact: Hair grows on average 1/2 inch per month or 6 inches in 1 year.

Day 1 – 1/29/09: Purchased Wild Hair Growth Oil after pricing several retailers. Applied oil according to directions. Smells strong and gives a slight cooling sensation during initial application.

Day 6 –  2/4/09: Hair has a softer texture. Hair also feels thicker. I’ve also been using Duke Revitalizing Lotion.

Day 16 – 2/13/09: Hair is still soft I’ve noticed about 1/4 inch of new growth. Hair needs to be shampooed 2x to remove the heavy oil.

As you can see my hair really didn’t grow exceedingly fast. It’s been growing according to schedule. After using the Wild Hair Growth Oil for over 2 weeks I find that this oil is good  for preventing breakage, but I don’t think it should be applied to the scalp. It should only be applied to the hair lightly paying close attention to the ends.

In conclusion Wild Hair Growth Oil will not grow your hair faster to some wild fantasy length like it claims, but it will help prevent and/or lessen breakage and improve manageability which will aid in adding length. This product is nothing more than an oil, plain and simple.

  1. Thank you for the information. My hair is thin and has

  2. Thank you for the information. My hair is thin and has always been short. My question is how to “encourage” thin hair to become thicker, or is it simply genetic and something with which I must simply live?

    I’d had my hair natural for the past 25 years, and decided to give a relaxer a try; I am taking good care of it, and not losing any hair. But it is still simply too short to do anything other than wash and condition and then about a 30 seconds light blow try. I’m already getting frustrated with it – any suggestions here?

  3. I notice you mention in the maintenance section that women with relaxers should use large/wide tooth combs. My hair is thin and short and I cannot gain any substantial traction with combs having wide teeth; also, in order to obtain a smooth look in the back of my head and on the side, a natural bristle brush is necessary.

    It appears to me that the assumption in most of the blogs is that it addresses and speaks to Black women with an advantage to start….. thick and/of long hair/medium length hair that can abide wide tooth combs and hair that does not require brushing to stay in place. Is my assumption wrong here?

    Remember in elementary school, there were those little girls with the beautiful, heavy thick locks/braids, that looked like rope and at least two inches in width or at least 7 inches or more in length? And then there were those unfortunate other little girls with the short
    fly away plaits, light-weight hair like cotton about and inch long and a half inch wide, and so thin until yo could almost “smell their brains” as the joke went?

    Well, I was one of the latter little girls – and not a whole lot has changed over the years not matter what I try.

    Thank you.

  4. My blog entries are not directed to just women with long hair at all. The whole purpose of this site is to help women grow their hair and maintain it. Brushes can be very damaging to your hair, ripping it out and causing extreme breakage. If you’ve opted to relax, your hair should be smooth and straight in the back so I’m confused to why you would need to brush it? You could always use a medium tooth comb. Wide tooth combs are best for black hair whether it is relaxed or natural.

    My son is in kindergarten right now and I notice the little girls and there hair condition when I drop him off or volunteer in his classroom. I’ve noticed that the little girls with longer hair usually have a sheen where it looks like it is moisturized and cared for properly. The little girls whom have very short hair usually have very dry hair and a lot of rubber bands and/or hair trinkets that aid in the breakage of their hair. The main problem is the lack of moisture which is why the hair will not gain length. Does your hair tend to be dry? Moisture may be the issue and now that you’ve decided to relax, your hair may be even drier. My suggestion is to follow the hair regimen on this site which will help you maintain a proper moisture balance, prevent breakage and add length. Let me know if your hair gains 3 inches in 6 months. Remember to wear a satin scarf or bonnet at night!

  6. To Robin504…take a look at your diet and make sure you are eating healthy and getting proper daily nutrition by eating fresh fruits & veggies, drinking at least 8 cups of water daily, taking vitamins and exercising. All those things really does wonders for your hair! What’s on the inside of you affects your hair & skin so get a colonic & drink water like crazy & be healthy. I hope this helps you!

  7. Yes and I love how healthy and strong my hair is without the chemicals! I can’t wait until it’s long again.

  8. Thanks for info!!!May be its helpful for me……

  9. Hi: Your information has been helpful. I lost an enormous amount of hair from glue ons, bad relaxers, weave ons, wig ons and braid ons. Now I am keeping my hair natural. Unfortunately my hair has thinned out and my temples and hairline are shot. Also, being older my hair is growing slowly but it is growing on the top and sides. Any tips?

    Comment by Ami — April 9, 2009 @ 4:44 pm

  10. Follow the suggestions on this site depending on your hair type (natural or chemically treated) and incorporate the Organic Root Stimulator Scalp Scrub and Fertilizing Hair Balm to regrow the hair that is thinning. In all honestly cutting my relaxed hair and regrowing it in its natural state was the best thing that I ever did for my hair. My hair is thicker than ever! I am not suggesting that you cut off your hair and go natural. The choice is totally yours, but it is always an option as well. Good Luck!!

  11. In your review of Wild Growth Oil you said the ingredients are not listed. I just started using these 2 oils (regular & lite)a few months ago and the ingredients are printed clearly on both bottles. I decided to try them because I’d read many messages saying that they are very good,keep hair soft & help stop breakage.I have found it to be true.

    Comment by NubianPrize — August 2, 2009 @ 9:29 pm

  12. Oh my! I have been using Wild Growth. When I was younger I used to have extremely long hair {oh how i miss it} but when I got into middle school I began wearing cornrows…as soon as I would take them out..I would put them back in…and sometimes they were tight…which of course destroyed my hair..and left my sides extremely thin…or practically bald…so I decided to go back to using wild growth again….and I dont know…I think it actually helped my hair grow…but like you said it could be that it was going to grow that same length anyways…and I also recommended it to a classmate…and her hair was so thick and beautiful and it had only been about 3 mnths…It does smell really bad though ugh…but now I can save the 10 bucks that this thing is costing me =) thnx for the tips!!!

  13. Some hair is just genetically made to be thin, especially if you are natural and it’s always been this way, but my questions to you are, what type of products are you using? Sometimes products can be the cause of thin hair. Also I don’t understand why you aren’t gaining any length if you are following the suggestions on this site. Are you cutting your hair to often?

    Comment by Samara — October 14, 2009 @ 3:58 pm

  14. you stated that the directions are not on the bottle and they are right on front on the bottle, and you only used the product for 15-16 days? So, therefore you never gave the product a full chance, what black person has ever achieved a full head of hair down her back with only using the product for 16 days, of course it’s not going to show immediate results. And the product is called “Wild Growth” for hair that is wild and hard to tame not for wild growth results….I think that if you are going to test a product fully atleast use the whole bottle before just throwing away money or telling others not to use it.

    *ladies use your own mind because what doesn’t work for someone else might just work for you

    Comment by shamiles3 — November 29, 2009 @ 7:27 pm

  15. First, I will like to correct you: I never stated that the directions were not on the bottle: Quote “The bottle says to apply the oil to the scalp. I do not believe in putting anything on my scalp, but I did just to accurately complete this review.” End Quote.

    Secondly, I never stated to women to not use this product.(Please see final paragraph) I simply stated that it does not cause the hair to grow any faster than it already does.

    Thank you.

  16. Perhaps you are right in saying that with proper maintanence your hair will grow in about the same amount of time. However, I am one who does not have time to cater to my hair all the time. I work, go to school and have children. So the hot oil treatments are usually out and daily applications are out. I frequently have to get my hair braided or wear a wig or plug in the flat irons to have decent looking hair. Therefore, I think this is just the miracle product I have been looking for. I put this oil in my hair a couple of times week and forget about my hair and it still grows…FYI my hair is growing at about a rate of 1 inch per month not 1/2 inch. I love this oil however I dont know how much more the new light oil can help but am dieing to see. Good Luck ladies try it you might like it alot.

  17. For everyone on here who is talking about the wild growth hair product, its mainly just for people with natural hair and the product does work and have ingridiants on the bottle. People just get up set because the product may not work for them like it has work for someone else so there is no reason to be dogging out the product. Beside everyone need to try it for themselves instead believing what someone else tells you about it because i use the product myself.

    Comment by Octavius — April 16, 2010 @ 11:40 am

  18. I don’t believe this product is just for natural hair. Although I am natural now, when I used this product I was relaxed and it did work well with my relaxed hair.

    Comment by Samara — April 17, 2010 @ 1:52 pm

  19. The bottle that I obtained did not contain a list of ingredients. Perhaps they have updated there packaging.

    Comment by Samara — April 17, 2010 @ 1:56 pm

  20. Maybe this oil works for different people. I noticed on other discussion forums that there were alot of negative results…such as, the product not working,and weighing your hair down, and the smell. Well I used the product exectly as it was explained. My hair grows slow, about or less than 1/4 of an inch a month =[ I got sick of my shoulder length hair. Its also very thick, my hair is permed and still thick and was breaking with splits. I used Wild growth hair oil for about 3 months and my hair is now growing about an inch a month =] and the breakage/splits seem too be stopping now!I am very happy with this product. This is what I did 3 times a week: *I parted my hair and applied a little amount of the oil in each part,then massaged my scalp.
    *put a little amount in my palms and rub together then rub it in the ends and body of my hair.
    *I blow dried my hair then wrapped it with a durag everynight. To me the smell goes away faster,i kinda like the smell though.

    I did this for about 3 months and my hair has grown a little over 2 inches…if that isnt wild growth then i don’t know what is.

  21. Thank you so much, I have purchased this product too and experienced nothing like the product claims. But I do believe that it helps the hair to be damageless from the breakage and free from harsh chemicals. A lot of African Americans don’t realize that they don’t need a certain product to really grow their hair (Not that i’m saying just by any product right off the shelf without doing any research). But as I have also search for growing African American hair, I have found the main conclusion from gathering my facts from searches that the main key is to “moisturize moisturize” that’s what our natural dry hair desire. But it also depends on how a person take care of their hair.

  22. I believe the ingredients are one the front of the bottle at the bottom. I just bought the light oil one (in a yellow bottle) because I am experiencing frizziness and breakage due to hair dye.

    The bottle I had did not contain an ingredients list, just instructions on how you use the oil

    Comment by Samara — September 29, 2010 @ 3:09 am

  24. For you info Samara I have been using wild growth hair oil and it is working for me. My hair used to be shorter than shoulder length hair in January of 2010 and now October of 2010 it is bra length and I am very pleased and recommend it to any black woman it will thicken your hair and grow it out faster. For the smell just get a little bottle of sheen spritz and spray it over you hair every time you use it.

    Comment by ami — October 11, 2010 @ 10:11 am

  25. So are you saying your hair grew about 5-6 inches? If so your hair has actually grew it’s normal rate. All this oil did for you is cut down on your breakage so you could maintain length. Hair grows an average of 6 inches per year.

    Comment by Samara — October 25, 2010 @ 2:47 pm

  26. Maybe you would of had better results if you tried it for at least 1 month. When trying ANY hair product, you should give it some time and a chance to actually see results. A little over 2 weeks isn’t a fair amount of time…..

    Comment by NewGrowth19 — February 2, 2011 @ 4:47 pm

  27. samara, did you use the oil consistently for at least a month, or did you give up after a week? were you using other things too?

    Comment by getitgirl — March 7, 2011 @ 12:51 pm

  28. I used the oil until it was gone, but overall it didn’t make my hair grow faster, however it did eliminate breakage so my hair could gain length.

    Comment by Samara — March 10, 2011 @ 3:17 pm

  29. i have to disagree with you. i know for a fact that wild growth oil works on bald spots. maybe you should have taken pictures since you look at your head full of hair everyday, it may seem like nothing is growing. wild growth oil is the truth. it should be used 2-3 days a week, and dont put no other products on your scalp the rest of the week.

    Comment by getitgirl — March 11, 2011 @ 9:40 am

  30. This product has done wonders for my hair. I can’t thank you enough. I just need a website that sells just this product as a kit…
