It’s time to review Wild Growth Hair Oil – because it doesn’t look any bad:
- really low price
- high quantity for the money
However, I found lots of complaints and negative reviews about it.
Considering it costs just $9 – it might be a useless product. Or it might not.
Well, I tested it out myself so here’s all the details you need to know about this Wild Oil.
Note: This review is based on my personal experience + opinion on this product.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Hair Oil By Wild Growth
Sizes: There are two available – 4 and 8 oz (I will focus on the first one).
Best Actual Price: Around $9
Cheapest Place To Buy: Ebay – but if you want a safer place, you can choose Amazon.
Designed For: Hair growth in general – and anything it involves:
- reduces hair breakage
- protects the ends and the roots
- softens the hair
Also – it claims to be effective for beard, eye lashes and eyebrows.
My Rating: 5 out of 10 – I wouldn’t recommend it.
Worth Buying?: Definitely not – it’s really cheap, but that’s pretty much it:
- doesn’t grow hair really well (or fast)
- extremely thick, greasy consistency and terrible smell
- causes real problems in some people (bad hair loss – ironically)
- contains some basic ingredients
So I would surely not recommend it, even if it’s so affordable. You can get a much better product instead.
What I Liked About It
- Price is really good for the quantity
- Available in 2 sizes
- You can get it from many retailers and shops
- Many authentic reviews
What I Didn’t Like About It
- Most ingredients have no benefits for hair
- Greasier and thicker than most oils I used
- Really bad smell
- Leaves your hair extremely greasy
- Only made my hair grow 1 inch more than usual (in 1 month)
- I found lots of serious complaints about it
- Can cause hair loss in some people
What Is Wild Growth Hair Oil?
Shortly – this product is designed to regrow new hairs or speed up hair growth.
So it claims to do this in several ways:
- Protects the hairs from the roots to the ends.
- Reduces breakage/shedding.
- Fills in bald spots (no matter what’s causing them).
- Softens and detangles hair.
However – that’s just on paper. Because in reality, it’s far from being as effective as it claims.
And thing is – it’s an oily product. Simply applying oil on your hair roots will make them grow faster – that’s a rule.
So there’s nothing special about this product that makes it better than regular oil.
Obviously, at $9 per bottle – it’s really worth trying.
But it’s surely not a product that I recommend – or that I would try again. You will understand below why.
#1 – Ingredients (5 out of 10)
Just like many topical products, Wild Growth’s formula is pretty weak:
- No ingredient in the focus
- No doses
- Some substances don’t have any benefits for hair
Basically – it’s just a mix of nice-smelling herbs.
Most of them aren’t even useful for hair growth – but they make the list longer (that’s the goal in many topical products).
1. What It Contains
Here’s a list of Wild Growth’s active ingredients:
Now – out of this list, it’s the oils that are the most important:
- they stimulate hair follicles
- increase sebum secretion
Here’s a tip to keep in mind: any oil will speed up hair growth.
Oily substance stimulate sebum production, which also stimulates follicles.
Basically – applying oil to your scalp for a few weeks will make your hair grow much faster.
But there’s also a downside – it will get really greasy and you will have to wash it daily.
2. Overall Formula
So it’s the oils that do most of the job in Wild Growth’s formula.
As I said – any oils would do, using Jojoba or Coconut Oil isn’t a must.
Other than the oils, I can’t find anything interesting in this formula:
- there are about 20 substances
- but most of them don’t have any hair benefit
Plus – topical formulas are never as effective as supplements.
So there’s no point comparing Wild Growth with any supplement – because there’s a huge difference (in terms of effect).
Wild Growth has a pretty weak formula (just like most topical products):
- doesn’t contain anything special
- no doses mentioned
- its ingredients aren’t very effective
As I said – this product can only help because it’s an oil.
Applying an oil to your scalp will automatically speed up hair growth (even if it’s regular Olive oil).
So this product itself doesn’t do anything special.
#2 – Smell & Texture (6 out of 10)
To my huge surprise, Wild Growth has some real problems at this chapter.
In my opinion, this product’s smell is absolutely terrible.
I mean – I used some products with a nasty smell before, but this one seems even worse:
- Feels like soil and cigarettes (that’s the best comparison I could find).
- It’s extremely intense.
- It lasts about 2-3 hours in your hair.
The only solution would be to add some scented spray afterwards. But I doubt that would take off the smell completely.
But overall – Wild Growth’s smell is absolutely bad, in my opinion.
I can’t say I liked its consistency either:
- It’s really thick – much thicker than other hair oils.
- Takes a very long time to soak in (and it actually doesn’t completely).
- Leaves your hair extremely greasy (a lot more greasy – compared to other oils).
- Washing your hair daily is a must.
- It has a yellowish color.
Basically – I consider this product as really hard to use.
Do you know Castor Oil? Well, 10 times worse than that.
It’s so gross that even applying it is hard – not to mention how it leaves your hair.
Also, it leaves lots of greasy marks on your clothes (especially at first, when you don’t know how badly it stains).
I definitely didn’t like the consistency of Wild Growth.
It’s super thick and hard to apply, smells really bad and strong and it makes a grease out of your hair.
So I definitely prefer regular oils (like Castor or Coconut) – they have a way better texture.
#3 – How To Use It (7 out of 10)
Normally – I would have rated it higher, but the instructions are pretty confusing (to me at least).
So here’s what the label recommends:
Now, I don’t really understand these instructions:
- They say you should use it 3 times per week in the first month.
- Up next, they say you should use it as a maintenance treatment (from the second month).
- However, they recommended using it as often – 3 times per week.
So if you can clarify these instructions for me, I would really appreciate it.
Because to me – they look really confusing.
So I can’t really tell which is the optimal schedule for this oil, honestly.
#4 – My Results (8 out of 10)
Overall, Wild Growth did work (more or less). So it’s surely not a scam – but it’s not a great product either.
1. My Background
I used to have a bad hair loss for several years – so my hair looked pretty badly:
- very thin ends (compared to the roots)
- growing extremely slow
- ends were breaking off very easily
Obviously – my hair loss didn’t decrease considerably, but it was better than it used to be.
So the only things I expected from Wild Growth would be to speed up my hair growth and strengthen it.
It claims to solve both things – so I was very curious to see if that’s true or not.
2. How It Worked
As I said in the beginning – any oil would speed up hair growth.
It’s because of the greasy consistency, that stimulates hair follicles and sebum production.
So Wild Growth had to work – even a bit.
And it did – not amazingly, but I could see a small change:
- My hair grew about 2 inches/month (a bit more than normally).
- The ends felt a bit stronger.
- They didn’t seem to break off as easily.
However – there’s also a negative side:
- My hair didn’t get any more volume or get thicker.
- The ends were still extremely thin (compared to the roots).
- My scalp was really greasy all the time.
- I had to wash my hair every other day (sometimes even daily).
Now – at first, I used Wild Growth daily. But I soon switched to 2-3 days, because it was making my hair literally leaky.
Using to every 2 days was better – but it was still extremely oily and horrible.
So I’m not sure if a minor growth was worth the sacrifice.
Wild Growth did improve my hair growth – but not amazingly (maybe 1 inch more than normal).
Considering all the hard work I did following the treatment (washing my hair constantly, applying the oil really often) – I don’t think it’s worth using.
It does have a good price, but its effect isn’t amazing:
- you can use any regular oil to get the same effect
- it will be much easier to use
- also, it will cost you even less
However – my top recommendation is a hair supplement, because it makes real wonders for hair growth.
Plus, it’s extremely easy to use and doesn’t leave your hair dirty (as oils do).
#5 – Other Opinions (6 out of 10)
In order to make this review as unbiased as possible – I tried reaching out to other customers.
There are lots of real opinions on Wild Growth:
- opinions are pretty divided
- there are both satisfied and unsatisfied customers
Up next – I will try to mention the main things I found about this product.
Note: I only considered authentic reviews (not general ones).
1. Positive Reviews
Here’s the good part I found about Wild Growth:
- Some people say it really thickens hair.
- Other claim they saw fast results in their hair’s growth speed.
- Some others say it really softens and smooths hair.
- There are a few that praise its low price.
However – I didn’t find as many positive opinions as in other products.
2. Negative Reviews
To be honest, there were a lot of complaints on this product.
Here’s what most people mentioned:
- Hair started falling out and thinning.
- One or several bald spots appeared.
- Didn’t help even after 3 months.
- Really bad smell and hard to use.
Now – the first 2 complaints are surely something major (especially because I saw many people mentioning them).
So basically, this product isn’t safe at all. It can cause the opposite effects in certain people:
- hair loss
- bald spots
- hair thinning
I personally didn’t experience anything of this kind, so I can’t really tell.
But considering there are so many complaints on this topic – I’m sure they’re real.
Sure enough, they wouldn’t appear to everyone (I’m the best example for that). But there’s still a chance that you get 1 of these problems too.
#6 – Price (9 out of 10)
At this chapter, there’s nothing I could criticize about Wild Growth:
- really affordable
- doesn’t come in a low quantity
1. How Much It Costs
As I said in the beginning, you can find this product in two sizes: 4 and 8 oz.
Here’s an average price for each:
- Smaller size is around $9.
- Larger size costs about $15.
Surely – the exact price depends on the seller, discounts or certain days (prices fluctuate from day to day).
But overall, this product is anything but expensive.
Now – I do agree that it doesn’t have any special ingredient. So the price is right – it shouldn’t be any higher.
But considering there are hundreds of products that contain basic stuff and cost over $30 per bottle, Wild Growth is really decent at this chapter.
2. Where You Can Find It
Just like I mentioned, the price depends a lot on the seller.
But good news here – you can find Wild Growth in many retailers:
Now – these are just a few, there are many other smaller websites that sell it.
But the question is – where can you find the best price?
- Ebay has different sellers, so they have the lowest prices ever.
- However – you have to contact the seller and pay the shipping taxes.
- That’s why it’s a bit more dangerous.
On the other hand, Amazon’s price is a bit higher (around $9) – but it’s a lot more safer.
So if you’re looking to buy Wild Growth, I think Amazon is the best choice.
#7 – FAQs
Here’s a list of the most common questions you might have about Wild Growth.
Note: I might repeat something I already mentioned, but it’s easier to notice here.
1. How often you should apply it?
As I said, the instructions are pretty confusing regarding to that.
But from what I understand, 3 times per week would be fine. That means every 2 days on an average.
2. How much lasts 1 bottle?
That’s not mentioned anywhere either.
But in my case – a 4 oz bottle was enough for about 1 month and a half.
So it really depends how often you apply it. But if you apply it ever 2 days, I should last at least 1 month.
3. How should you apply it?
It’s pretty simple:
- shake the bottle well enough
- apply a few drops all over your scalp
- massage or brush through
I personally never used the brush – because the product is very thick, so it would only make my brush dirty.
Using your hands is much easier. However – keep in mind this oil will make your hair really greasy.
4. Are there any side effects?
The label doesn’t mention any – since it’s a topical product.
But I read many reviews of people complaining about hair falling out (ironically), thinning or getting bald spots.
So I think I can call these side effects – and they seem to be more common than it other products.
That’s why you should be really careful with this product.
5. How fast should I notice an effect?
According to the label – you should check your hair daily.
But it doesn’t mention anything about how fast it should start working.
Now – in my opinion, you should see an effect after 1 month (at most). It won’t be a major one, but there should be an effect.
#8 – Final Conclusions
Here are 3 ideas you should keep in mind about Wild Growth.
1. Really Cheap
Compared to other hair oils, this one is so affordable:
- less than $10 per bottle (for the 4 oz size)
- lasts long enough – more than 1 month
It’s surely not a great product in terms of effect – but that’s not the point here.
Other products work just as bad and cost over $30, so Wild Growth is really affordable (even just for trying).
2. So Hard To Use
Wild Growth’s consistency matches its super low price:
- the thickest oily lotion I’ve seen
- really greasy and doesn’t soak in completely
- leaves your hair so greasy
- absolutely terrible smell
Basically – it’s very uncomfortable to use, even every 2-3 days.
Plus, you have to wash your hair several times. Otherwise the grease won’t go off.
3. Possibly Dangerous
There are lots of authentic reviews complaining about it.
According to many people – instead of growing hair, it causes:
- hair loss
- bald patches
Thing is – there were more than 10 people complaining about that, which makes me think it’s real.
Obviously, these won’t happen to everyone – but they might. So be careful if you use this product.
My Verdict – Is Wild Growth Worth Buying?
Short answer: Not really – it might be cheap, but it has some big downsides:
- Ingredients are pretty weak overall.
- Extremely hard to use (greasy and bad smell).
- Leaves your hair extremely greasy.
- Doesn’t speed up hair growth considerably.
- Can cause serious side effects in some people (hair loss and bald spots).
- Many negative reviews overall.
Its only big advantage is price.
But considering what it contains – the price isn’t even that low.
So what should you choose instead?: A special supplement called Folexin – that’s designed for hair growth.
It does cost more than $9 – but it’s way cheaper than others. Besides:
- Decreases hair loss completely in 1-2 months.
- Speeds up hair growth a lot.
- Thickens hair and adds volume.
- Works for both men and women.
- Really easy to take (compared to Wild Growth).
That’s the product I personally use and what I also recommend to anyone with hair loss or who wanted to grow out hair.
So I hope you choose the right thing for you.
8 thoughts on “My Review: Wild Growth Hair Oil (2023) – Does It Really Work?”
Hi, you don’t need to apply Wild Oil daily, twice a week would be fine for the beginning. It took me a while to discovered that, but it does your job easier using it less. The smell doesn’t bother me so much, but it’s more weird that others. But I agree about its thick consistency, that makes it so hard to rinse well so you have to shampoo your hair more than you would normally. But it’s a nice oil for the price, my hair grew a few inches in the last months.
Hi Jen, thanks for your explanation. Wild Growth Hair Oil’s “how to use” was so unclear to me, but you’re right – it’s much easier to apply it 2-3 times per week. You don’t need to wash your hair so often, which is a big waste of time usually.
It’s great to hear it helped regrow your hair. Now – the point is that any oil applied on the scalp speeds up hair growth. It’s their mechanism, because they stimulate gland secretions so hair follicles are also stimulated. That’s why I’m not so sure if this product helped you more than any regular oil would have.
But anyway – for $9, it’s worth using. Thanks for letting me know your opinion.
Hey Olly, I used Wild Hair Growth and other oils and nothing helps, my hair is shedding like crazy! I had an appointment to my doctor and had some blood tests, but nothing that explains my hair loss. I feel otherwise healthy and full of life, but my hair is shedding for 4 months already and I’m getting my scalp visible from certain angles. I finished with menopause more than 3 years ago, so it could not be this, also my specialist let it go. Any suggestions on what I could do? Do you think i should go on using this oil from Wild Growth? As you said it’s so nasty to use, leaves your fingers so greasy and unctuous that you don’t wanna touch anything else, yuck! I would rather not, but if you say it has a chance to help me, I might give it another shot.
Hey Erika. There may be several causes, from genetics to chronic conditions you already have (diabetes, auto-immune problems, thyroid issues, etc).
So let me ask you a few questions to understand your problem better:
1. Did your blood test show any vitamin/nutrients deficiency?
2. Has anyone from your family (women most likely) dealt with similar problems at your age?
3. Are you/Have you eve been a smoker? If yes, how many cigarettes per day?
4. Do you have any chronic conditions? If yes, are you following the treatment?
5. Have you followed any drastic diet in the last year?
6. Did you experience any major trauma in the last 6 months?
Please answer the question as detailed as you can and let me know your answer.
I can recommend you the product I also use for hair loss, which made real miracles for me.
But I would advise you to give me more details before you order anything. Maybe we can realize what’s the problem behind together.
Hope this helps.
I think it’s okay for a $9 product…My mom and I are trying to grow out our hair and bought this to see if it helps. We’re african american and have kinky curls, so it never looks like growing anything. I didn’t really love this oil but I actually think it improved my hair a bit. I can’t tell about the growth as it’s just 2 months since I’m using it, but it definitely looks softer. My mom feels about the same, but she uses it less because she hates the smell and can’t cope with it. I didn’t like it at first but now I got used to it, it’s not a reason to give up this oil for me. I paid just $9 on it, I’m not expecting dramatic changes lol, any extra inch would mean a lot to me. Will notify you on how it goes on in the future.
Hi Kylie, thanks for your feedback on Wild Growth Hair Oil. I’m definitely curious to see if it helps you on the long term. It’s great to hear you weren’t bothered by the smell. It’s true that you get used to it, but I personally really disliked it, as well as the consistency.
You guys have kinky hair, so maybe that’s why you felt like it was softer and better hydrated. My hair is normally pretty dry too, but it’s not kinky – so it was constantly greasy from this oil. That’s why it probably works much better for black women – I actually think that’s what it’s designed for, right?
Thanks again for your honest opinion and I’m waiting to hear the results.
Wild hair growth oil Does not work. My daughter and I both lost hair to this product it changed the texture of our hair which fell out due to excessive shedding.
Hi Erma, thanks for your feedback on this product. I’m sorry to hear you had such issues because of it, but unfortunately you’re not the only one. Lots of women complain it made their had look really oily and heavy, so it ended up breaking and falling out. It’s such a shame that a product meant to grow hair faster ends up making it fall out worse than before. I actually recommend it only to black women with coarse hair – in these situations, it won’t affect the hair too much but actually help it. But for white women (no matter how frizzy is your hair) it’s way too strong.
Thanks again for sharing your experience with it.
