Discover How To Use Emu Oil As A Hair Growth And Hair Loss Remedy

Since I started researching different popular oils and butters, I came across one in particular called emu oil. I didn’t realize at first that it is exactly as its name implies — oil from the emu bird, a relative of an ostrich. The emu bird is like most other fouls — it is considered a low-fat option to red meats like beef.

It’s a bummer because I’m a vegan and I don’t eat or use animal products, but for those who don’t mind, I have great news!

From the research I’ve come across, it’s been shown that emu oil wakes up to 80% of sleeping hair follicles. This is clearly exciting news for those suffering from hair loss or want to boost their hair growth.

What makes emu oil different from other animal oils?

Animal fat, or lard, is not all created equal. The oil taken from the emu bird’s meat is sterilized from its fat, which is then refined in order to remove organic substances and icky smells.

Emu oil isn’t brand new either — it was first used by aboriginal Australians who used it for its healing properties. Later in 1860 London, it was used to help heal wounds, alleviate pain and treat various muscular disorders.


Now, we have evolved to using the oil for beauty purposes such as hair growth. It has grown in popularity around the globe because of how it is able to stimulate growth and regrowth in as little as one month. Try rubbing pig lard on your hair and see if it can do that!

Both men and women suffer from hair loss at young ages

Hair thinning and balding isn’t only affecting middle-aged men and women. These days, it’s trickling down to both sexes younger and younger. Of course, this has a lot to do with diet, poor nutrition and damaging hair routines (or lack of a sensible routine).

It’s said that 40% of men will have noticeable hair loss by the time they’re 35 years old. Further, 65% of women are believed to have obvious hair loss by the time they reach 60 years old.

Whatever age hair loss it witnessed, most folks turn to chemical products like Rogaine to combat their problem. Unlike with emu oil, these products can take as long as year, if not longer, to see real results. What’s worse is that once you stop these treatments, your hair starts to fall out once again — not exactly a remedy, just a cover up. You might as well get a toupee!

I’m going to look for this and try it.

I know of someone who swore by emu oil although I haven’t tried it myself.

I am so glad emu oil is getting it’s props. i use it all the time and i swear by it. Do your homework on it first. See which ones are government certified. Between Jamaican Black Castor Oil and Emu Oil, I couldn’t go wrong.

i started using emu oil about a month or so ago and I’m in love. I was looking for information for healing a piercing and the website I found the piercer recommended emu oil. I did some research and learned of all the other possible uses/benefits. I mix it with other oils for hair and skin. I use just emu oil on my face now. And I have been using it on a surgery scar and it’s already helping with hypertrophic scarring. I just wish I revisited this a long time ago.

Because they have to kill the Emu to abstract it’s oil, I am totally against this method. There are too many products on the market for hair growth without selfishly destroying an animal to obtain. If you are a conscientious person, please try other oils. Thank you.

I just published an article about this exact topic too! Emu oil is great for hair loss caused by tight pulling. Like you pointed out, those hair follicles aren’t dead, they’re still in there but they’ve stopped actively growing. Emu oil wakes them up. http://emubliss.com/pages/emu-oil-for-hair
