What is Rosemary?
What are the benefits of rosemary for hair loss and for improving the condition of your hair?
Rosemary is a fragrant plant or herb that has been used for centuries due to its amazing aromatic properties and benefits. It has been used as an ingredient in food, medicine, and even as an ingredient in perfumes. Once you have tasted roasted lamb or roasted chicken with rosemary or roasted rosemary potatoes you will be hooked.
Rosemary has a distinct, pleasant smell that can fill a room and is often used as an air freshener. In addition to its wonderful scent, rosemary has also been known to improve memory, relieve muscle pain, and boost circulation, among other benefits.
Rosemary can be used in many forms, such as a fresh herb, dried herb, infused rosemary oil or water, or essential oil. Essential oils are often used for health purposes because they are powerful and easy to obtain. In fact, most chemists or pharmacies usually stock rosemary essential oil together with a couple of other essential oils. Be careful not to mistake essential oils for infused oils.
Essential oils are produced when the plant is crushed and placed under pressure to extract the pure natural oil found in the herb. This oil is much more powerful and beneficial than an infused oil which is created by soaking the plant in oil for a period of time.
The benefits of Rosemary for your hair
While rosemary has so many health benefits, my main concern is the benefits that it has for your hair growth and how it can assist you to have longer healthier, and more vibrant hair.
- Anti-inflammatory – helps to reduce the inflammation on your scalp. This can help to prevent itching, dry scalp, and hair loss. Inflammation can also affect hair follicles, causing them to become infected. By reducing inflammation on your scalp, you can help to prevent this and keep your hair healthy, beautiful, and strong.
- Vasodilator – increases blood flow to the hair root. This increased blood flow provides more nutrients to the hair, which allows it to grow stronger. The most commonly known drug for hair loss, Minoxidil, is nothing more than a vasodilator.
- Boosts Hair Growth – The increased blood flow to your hair root combined with reduced inflammation can cause a significant boost in hair growth, stronger roots, and healthier hair. A medical study by scientists found that Rosemary can increase hair growth substantially and is also effective against certain types of alopecia.
- Reduces Hair Fall – By strengthening your hair and improving the hair root, Rosemary helps to prevent excess hair fall. When you start losing more hair than is normal, it can cause your hair to become thinner. If the hair loss continues, it can eventually lead to baldness.
How to Use Rosemary on Your Hair
Using Fresh Rosemary For Hair
If you want to make a Rosemary infusion, cut a few fresh sprigs of rosemary from your rosemary bush and add them to a jug of freshly boiled water. The amount of water should be 1 to 2 liters.
Allow the rosemary to steep in the water for 10 minutes. Remove the rosemary sprigs from the water. The water should be lovely and fragrant.
You should wash your hair, and then use the Rosemary water to rinse it afterward. Do not rinse the Rosemary water out your hair. While you’re drying your hair, try to also give your scalp a gentle massage. This can help improve circulation and make your hair look healthier.
Rosemary Essential Oil.
Add approx 10 drops of rosemary essential oil to your 300ml bottle of shampoo and the same to your conditioner.
Shake the bottles gently until the rosemary is mixed into the shampoo and the conditioner.
Use to wash your hair as normal.
Alternate – Rosemary oil.
Add 10 to 20 drops of rosemary oil to 1 tbsp of your favorite carrier oil, extra virgin olive oil is a good choice.
Apply a couple of drops of the oil directly onto your scalp and massage into the scalp.
Leave the oil on your scalp for as long as possible.
Rosemary has been shown to be an effective solution for hair fall, with some studies even suggesting it is as effective as Minoxidil (Rogaine) for hair growth. To get the best results, using it in combination with other beneficial essential oils and base oils is recommended.
