Spirulina Hair Oil: How to Make It

Diperbarui: Apr 25

Sudah pernah cobain spirulina?



Spirulina Hair Oil

Spirulina ini sudah santer terdengar sebagai green superfood sejak beberapa waktu lalu, dan akhirnya saya baru-baru aja cobainnya karena saya butuh asupan to boost my defense against pollution di Jakarta . I do believe prevention is better than cure. Daripada sakit yang biayanya mahal, lebih baik mencegah jangan sakit kan? I take this food supplement berdasar hasil studi pada tahun 2015 yang menyebutkan bahwa spirulina ini efektif untuk menetralkan polutan dalam tubuh, such as mercury, arsenic, lead, iron, fluoride.


Eh tapi ternyata spirulina ini hitz banget sebagai produk perawatan kulit dan rambut. Coba deh googling spirulina, pasti banyak muncul “masker spirulina” dan “spirulina hair growth”. Spirulina bisa untuk menumbuhkan rambut? Hmmm, lemme check apakah ada published research mengenai hal ini. The result of 2015 study shows that marine protein-based dietary supplement was useful to reduce hair thinning/loss.

Another study in 2018 finds that a dietary supplement containing a marine complex and other natural ingredients can safely and effectively promote hair growth and decrease hair shedding in women and men with thinning hair.


Interesting! Ini penting banget for my hubby yang rambutnya thinning dan secara genetic di keluarganya mengalami kebotakan. Ok, let him try using spirulina orally and topically.

Nah, untuk menggunakan spirulina sebagai perawatan rambut, I made him a bottle of hair oil yang dipakai setiap hari sebelum dia cuci rambut. Here I want to share how to make spirulina hair oil:


1. Pick carrier oil

There are some options of carrier oil with hair growth benefits such as argan oil, castor oil, kukui nut alias candlenut oil dan ada juga coconut oil. Kali ini saya pakai candlenut oil alias minyak kemiri yang traditionally dipercaya dan populer untuk perawatan rambut di Hawaii dan di Indonesia.


2. Infuse the oil

I prepared the oil in a glass jar then I add spirulina powder – the ratio is 1:3. I used cold infusion, so it took 4 weeks before I can use this oil. For detail on how to make infused oil, visit my previous article.


3.Get it ready to use

After 4 weeks of infusion, tiba saatnya untuk menyaring minyak kemiri dengan coffee paper filter. Hasil minyaknya saya tambahkan essential oil yang bermanfaat untuk hair growth – this time I use ginger, lavender and clary sage essential oils. To make it easy to use, I recommend pump bottle.



My hubby has been using it for more than a week every night sebelum keramas, let see apakah hair oil ini membantu mengatasi his hair problem. I will definitely update this post J Stay tune!
