HAIR: 4 weeks hair growth with multiple oil infusion...does it work?

I try to make the blog intros short so you can read up on the topics quickly so I hope the following is short enough lol..
I went into this search for thickening and hair growth in hopes of finding something to help with my thin hair and in my past journey, I have tried oils, serums, thickening and/or volumizing shampoos and hair products and some worked for a little bit, some weighed my hair down and some just completely failed....
So my last venture with hair product probably has the most result and so I decided to share my 4 weeks journey to longer, shinier and healthier hair.
Here are the ingredients to my concoction :) which I have used religiously 1-2 times a week leaving it overnight. Key is consistency.

I used the container's cap to measure as I don't really have an exact measurement of the products. For my hair length, I used a capful of each.
You're going to need a container, I used one of those gladlock's 4 oz container, you can use a squeeze bottle from sally's if you have one for easier dispersal.

Prior to mixing all the oils, I treat my scalp with Murad Scalp Treatment Serum for thin hair. This product claims, "Murad Serum for Fine to Thinning Hair is a patented formulation designed to stimulate and fortify the scalp with vital nutrients, nourishing healthy hair growth. Murad Scalp Serum for Fine to Thinning Hair also strengthens and protects hair." Doing this prior allows the treatment to penetrate while you mix your products.
Proceed with mixing the oils. Apply to scalp massaging it for at least 3-5 minutes then work your way through the end of the strands. Let it sit for however long you want to. BEST result, leave it overnight (wrap your hair with a silk scarf, and protect your pillow with a towel or your boyfriend's t-shirt)
Shampoo twice, condition and style. Make sure you use a clarifying shampoo every other week to wash off any buildup and follow up with a hydrating hair mask or just leave conditioner longer than you normally would and you're good to go. 

Have you tried any DIY hair growth remedy?

Grapeseed Oil (any grocery store or organic grocery store)
Virgin Coconut Oil (Cold press for best result)
Argan Oil (Wholefood's, Trader Joe's or Amazon- Got mine at Sprouts)
Moroccan Oil (If you can't get a hold of this or too pricey ($30+), Organix (>$10) has their version and available at CVS)
Castor Oil (I like this particular brand as I've read good results from other users, I got this at Sprouts for about $12 I think.)
Vitamin E Oil- (CVS for under $10)
Murad Scalp Treatment Serum (Sephora, Amazon $25+)

Some of my go to hair care... I ran out of my Moroccan oil Shampoo and Conditioner and decided to try the dupes below and found that it works just as great for a fraction of the cost :)
