The Benefits of Rosemary Oil for Hair
Rosemary’s having a moment. Or rosemary oil is, at least. Over on TikTok, everybody’s talking about it. And a lot of people have been ordering our Rosemary Shampoo and Conditioner. We’ve been using the beneficial oil from this Mediterranean herb in our haircare range for decades. Why the buzz now?
Why is Everyone Trying Rosemary Shampoo?
Rosemary oil went viral on TikTok recently after several users claimed it could help combat thinning hair and hair loss. That’s why people are running-not-walking to get their hands on rosemary oil shampoo. Using rosemary shampoo and rosemary conditioner is an easy way to build the ingredient everybody’s talking about into your haircare routine.
Does Rosemary Oil Encourage Hair Growth?
Here’s the truth: there’s no guarantee that rosemary oil (or any other oil) actually encourages hair growth. Several studies have suggested that in some cases, it may help reverse some forms of hair loss. This particular study, from 2015, showed very positive results. But as with any hair or skincare ingredient, what works for one person might not be effective for another. Whether or not rosemary oil helps reverse hair loss, it is known to have loads of benefits that can help promote a healthy scalp – and that can only be a good thing for your hair.
What Are the Benefits of Rosemary Oil for Hair?
Many of the benefits of rosemary oil for hair actually relate to the scalp. But given that the scalp is at the root (literally) of healthy hair, it figures that taking care of the delicate skin on your head will lead to stronger locks in the long run. Rosemary oil is known to have antifungal and antibacterial properties, which may help prevent dandruff and help keep follicles clear. It is also thought to increase blood flow to the scalp, which can lead to healthy hair growth.
Rosemary oil still has plenty to offer hair itself, though: thanks to its abundant antioxidants, it is thought to protect strands from free radical damage. And an impressive roster of nutrients including vitamins A & C, calcium and iron are all known to nourish and care for hair.
Why use a Rosemary Shampoo?
Fans of rosemary oil for hair growth suggest mixing it with a carrier oil (it should never be applied neat), massaging it thoroughly into the scalp and leaving for around 30 minutes. They recommend following this routine twice a week. If this sounds too messy and time-consuming for you, washing your hair with a rosemary shampoo and conditioner is a great way to treat your hair to a regular dose of rosemary oil without the grease and hassle. And if you are devoted to regular massages, what better way to complement your rosemary oil regime than by washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner containing the very same oil?
In case you need any more reasons to wash your hair in rosemary shampoo and conditioner, it smells amazing. The herbal, evergreen scent of rosemary has been used in aromatherapy for centuries. It is thought to help with concentration, and in ancient civilisation it was believed to aid memory. Regardless of whether it can really boost your brain, the fresh, woody aroma makes washing your hair an invigorating treat.
