Alikay Naturals growth oil reviews - essential 17 growth challenge

Much like some of our favorite DIY mixes like aloe vera and almond oil for hair growth, this nourishing and lightweight Alikay naturals blend of 17 essential oils and hair growth herbs is designed to boost hair growth quickly by soothing your scalp while strengthening and stimulating your hair follicles. 

Many of the Alikay Naturals Hair Growth oil reviews say that a tell-tale way to know that Essential 17 is working for you is feeling and seeing a reduction in dandruff and scalp irritation. It’s common to see the boost in scalp health within a week or so and this puts your scalp in condition to maintain healthy hair growth.

Alikay Natural Hair Growth oil is a great alternative to using Wild Growth hair oil for your edges if you don't like the scent of Wild hair growth oil.

Some Alikay Naturals Hair Growth oil reviews mention that you should pair the hair oil with Alikay Natural Lemongrass Leave-In Conditioner for the ultimate 1-2  hair moisturizing, growth-boosting punch!

Alikay Naturals Hair Growth Oil Reviews - 5 star
Alikay Naturals Hair Growth Oil Reviews 4 out of 5 stars

REVIEW BY Lakesha E.

I have been having an issue with dull and dry hair. I bought Alikay Naturals Hair Growth Oil so that I could keep my scalp happy and have longer, healthy hair.

Because I have the Alikay naturals leave-in and hair yogurt I decided to continue with this oil.

I like the bottle and spout. I can get directly to the scalp and make sure that it is penetrated my scalp. It smells herbal but not in a bad way.

Since using this my scalp has been less dry and I am seeing less flakes.

Now the price is a bit expensive in my opinion that's why it doesn't get a 5-star rating from me. I do think a little goes a long way but I like hot oil treatments and because of using so much oil I just don't think this is cost-effective enough for me to do so. So I will continue to use this to seal my ends and will probably repurchase.

I have extremely fine damaged hair, a good friend of mine turned me on to this product. I don’t have an issue with my hair growing but it falls out by the handful. Seriously, I can run my fingers through my hair at any given time and clumps of hair will come out, that is why I started using this Alikay product.

After using it for about 2 months my hair isn’t falling out anymore and seems thicker. I really like the spout on this growth oil, it makes it super easy to apply! The product also smells wonderful. It still makes my scalp tingly but not itchy like some reviews I've read. All in all it is an amazing product.

This hair growth oil is absolutely amazing! It's not to oily to the point where it drips onto your face throughout the day. It doesn't transfer to your pillowcase, besides the smell which is a sweet peppermint smell. I was so in love in let my mom and sister use it.

My mom’s hair is thinner and straighter and it didn't weigh her hair down. My sister has 3c/4a hair and she also loves this growth oil for her scalp which tends to be dry. But after frequently using it that changed. My kinky hair drinks moisture and this product helps my scalp stay hydrated! Absolutely love the fact there's emu oil in it too! Emu oil is a great addition to any hair growth oil, the price is perfect!

I don’t know where I will be without this hair growth oil. This amazing brand shows real results. After my friend recommended the oil which can be found in stores such as Target and Walmart, I knew I would need to order more of their products. Can’t wait to update with growth results.

Alikay Naturals was one of the first natural hair vloggers that I followed on YouTube and I’ve been supportive of her journey since then! I received this hair growth oil as a gift and love using it.

My hair has been thinning out from stress and wearing tight braids, so this has been really helpful in making my natural hair thick again.

Alikay Naturals Growth Oil Reviews

So, to be fair. You can search online all day long and the Alikay Naturals hair growth oil reviews are overwhelmingly positive.

Still, I don't want to only show you the good, I want everyoné's voice to be heard, so I'll show some of the "bad" reviews.

Alikay Naturals Hair Growth Oil Reviews - essential 17 too oily bad review

I kinda had too laugh about the fact that this reviewer complained that an oil is "a bit on the oily side"....lol.

Anyway, the oilyness aside, some people (like myself) love a minty smell and it seems she did too. I haven't seen many other folks complain about any bad smell if you don't wash it out.

Now this next Alikay Natural hair growth oil review goes into the "ugly" review category... Yikes!

alikay naturals hair growth oil reviews - bad review only 12 ingredients instead of 17 essential oils

I had to do some research on this one, I don't know how damaging postpartum hair loss is, but that may beyond scope of a hair growth oil for black women.

Also, as far as the claim of only 12 ingredients instead of 17...

I can't lie, I did the research and I can't find more than 10 listed because they seem to list "key" ingredients only, either way, I will give you all of the Alikay Naturals Essential 17 Hair Growth Oil ingredients below in our FAQs section...

At the end of the day, results speak for themselves though. So you have to decide for yourself which Alikay Naturals Hair Growth oil reviews you believe. Here's a video presention of how to apply Alikay Naturals hair oil...

The "Walking Dreads" Reviews How to Apply Alikay Naturals Essential 17 Hair Growth Oil

If you watched the video above you'll see that good growth oils are essential for folks with locs. And many loyal buyers love Alikay naturals loc oil.
