How to Use Rosemary Oil to Reverse Hair Loss and Grow Enviable Hair
Aug. 28, 2020
It seems like every hair product on the planet contains some kind of oil, despite the fact that we wash our hair to get rid of that oily look. From argan to almond oil, it seems like we’re supposed to be using it all on our hair, but once you’ve probably not considered using is rosemary oil – at least until now!
Why Use Rosemary Oil for Hair Growth?
Rosemary is a culinary herb, and if you’re anything like us, you’ll associate the smell of rosemary with a delicious meal! Much like peppermint, oregano, cinnamon, and other herbs used in the kitchen, rosemary usually comes in the form of essential oil. Essential oils are made when plant or herb extracts are concentrated and distilled for beauty, culinary and medicinal use.
So, what can rosemary oil do for your hair? Here are 3 major benefits.
Rosemary has been used as a healing herb for centuries due to its anti-inflammatory properties. As many auto-immune and chronic diseases are caused by inflammation, any herb or plant that could reduce inflammation is often relied on heavily.
While its medicinal properties have been lauded for a long time, rosemary can also improve nerve growth and circulation. When applied to the scalp, rosemary essential oil can prevent hair follicles from drying up and breaking off, and the increased blood circulation ensures your hair gets all the nutrients it needs.
Many people who suffer from pattern baldness use rosemary as a wholesome and safe long-term alternative to hair implants or extensions, or as an additional treatment in their arsenal.
Rosemary oil has been used as a treatment for those suffering from androgenetic alopecia. One 2015 study found that, compared to minoxidil, which is commercially known as Rogaine, rosemary oil was as effective in encouraging hair growth and even more effective in reducing the severity of itching scalp.
For those who have lost significant amounts of hair due to illness, rosemary oil may prove to be an excellent product, particularly for those who are concerned about using harsh chemicals on their scalps.
A review of the way rosemary interacts with microorganisms and cells noted that rosemary could be an effective way of killing bacteria. The same study even went on to comment that rosemary would work well in products such as ointments, soaps, toothpaste, mouthwashes, and irrigating root canals.
Given that rosemary has antibacterial properties as well as anti-inflammatory properties, the essential oil should be applied to the scalp to remedy skin irritation or infection caused by bacteria on the scalp. This makes it effective for people who suffer from dandruff and eczema on their scalp.
How to Use Rosemary Oil for Hair Growth
There are two key ways you can use rosemary oil for hair growth: as a treatment or infused in your everyday routine.
As an Intensive Treatment
Massage it into your scalp. If you have very thick hair, make sure you distribute it evenly throughout your hair (you can make this easier by mixing it with a “carrier oil” such as coconut oil which will dilute it some). Leave it overnight in a shower cap if you want intense hydration, or leave it on for about 10-20 minutes and rinse it out.
If you want to avoid intensive treatments, try adding some oil into your shampoo. This is perfect if you have a sensitive scalp or broken skin, and don’t want to apply it directly.
Start off with a little, just a drop or two into your palm with your shampoo, and once you have done it a few times, build it up to two or three drops. Adding rosemary oil is a great way to doubly stimulate the hair follicles and increase your chances of having a lovely, thick mane. It also means the rosemary oil will be thoroughly rubbed into every inch of your hair as well as your scalp.
Can It Really Reverse Hair Loss?
It should be noted that, while rosemary oil has been seen to protect against hair loss, research on the healing properties of rosemary oil and it’s the ability to reverse hair loss is still fairly new, but it certainly has potential to prevent hair loss and many have reported good anecdotal reports.
Of course, if you’re simply looking for a beautiful long, strong mane, then rosemary oil should definitely be a part of your weekly hair routine! If you have sensitive skin and haven’t tried rosemary oil before, perform a patch test as you would a home hair-dye or intensive treatment just to check you won’t react badly to it. It’s unlikely but better safe than sorry!
Clear Hydrated Skin The Clean Way✨
Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰

Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
