There is NOTHING like trying out a new DIY hair serum, especially one that works to encourage hair growth! Those with fine, barely there hair that would like to grow their hair, can benefit from this coconut oil & aloe vera DIY hair growth serum as it promotes quick hair growth. Aside from that, it also nourishes dry hair and scalp and pumps each hair follicle with proteins and vitamins to add shine, volume, and fix split ends.
Coconut Oil & Aloe Vera DIY Hair Growth Serum Recipe
- 1/2 cup fresh aloe vera gel
- 2 tbsp organic coconut oil
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 1 vitamin E capsule
- In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together.
- Apply to dry, unwashed hair and leave on for at least 2 hours or overnight. If you leave it on overnight, make sure to slip on a shower cap as not to stain your pillows!
- Rinse out and shampoo and condition as usual.
- Use 2-3 times a week to encourage hair growth, fix split ends, and eliminate fizz.
Why The Coconut Oil & Aloe Vera DIY Hair Growth Serum WORKS:
Aloe vera gel is a natural ingredient that is anti-bacterial and deep cleansing, therefore curing any scalp problems that may prevent hair growth. Aloe vera gel also contains a ton of vitamins and minerals that go deep into the hair follicles to seal in moisture and prevent split ends.
Coconut oil is packed full of fatty acids and proteins which nourish dry, brittle, and breaking hair. Each strand gets a big dose of these fatty acids and proteins to protect and heal hair that grows slowly.
Honey is also anti-bacterial and anti-septic, and therefore great for the scalp. Honey is also a deep cleanser and a moisturizer too!
Vitamin E oil nourishes dry, breaking hair, and also eliminates frizz.

Can I use vitamin E oil out of the bottle or is it not the same as the capsule. Thanks
Yes you can use vitamin E oil straight out of the bottle – it is the same thing 🙂
When using Vitamin E Oil in the oil form how much should one use?
You can use anywhere from 1/4 tsp to 1 tsp. It doesn’t have to be exact 🙂
I don’t have vitamin e oil does this serum do the same with growing hair without it
The serum will still work well without it, but vitamin E oil is great at helping to repair damaged hair follicles and helps build tissue. You could also replace vitamin E oil with a little bit of castor oil, but if not, leaving it out altogether is ok 🙂
Where can I purchase vitamin E oil from plz?
Marie-Claire, you should be able to find vitamin E almost anywhere 🙂 Check your local drug store, grocery store, health store, beauty store, or online such as on Amazon!

The aloe vera in this recipe will make the serum a little slimy, yes. Massage all over head, including roots and ends for best results 🙂
Do you have wash it out ?
Yes, the serum must be washed out. You can leave it on overnight, but you’ll have to wash it out and then follow up with a shampoo and conditioner.
