Taking care of your hair is not an easy task. To keep your hair healthy and damage-free, you have to do a number of things on a regular basis- oiling, conditioning and damage repair. However, most of us forego these things and rely on branded shampoos to take care of our hair. The reality is that commercial hair products are full of chemicals that are actually bad for you. This is why there has been an increasing trend towards using chemical-free natural essential oils that strengthen your roots and work from the inside out. They’re budget-friendly and you know exactly what you’re putting in your scalp.
Rosemary essential oil has been proved to be one of the most popular and effective essential oils for hair fall and damage control. It has been used for centuries and across the world for its powerful healing properties. It not only encourages hair growth, but also prevents dandruff, grey hair and itchy scalp. Here are some ways in which rosemary oil can solve your hair problems.
1. Stimulates Hair Growth
Hair loss is a problem faced by most men and women in their lifetime. It reduces self-esteem and has devastating effects of confidence. Rosemary essential oil improves blood circulation in your scalp that encourages new roots and stimulates hair follicles. This helps reduce patchy hair and persistent hair fall problems.
2. Soothes Itchiness in Scalp
Rosemary has high nutritional value and its anti-inflammatory properties provide relief for itchy and irritated scalps. It nourishes the hair from its roots and moisturises dry hair. This essential oil is specially recommended for people suffering from inflamed scalps.
3. Dandruff Control and Prevention
Rosemary oil is highly popular for its effectiveness in controlling dandruff and flakes after only a few weeks of use. Pollution and excessive use of chemicals can clog your roots which then causes dandruff and hair fall. The oil from rosemary helps clean the clogged hair follicles which stops dandruff and hair loss. It is also renowned for its ability to prevent and control grey hair.
4. Gives Thick and Voluminous Hair
Rosemary is believed to stimulate cell division that promotes hair growth and new roots. It is known to give a shine and luster to the hair and is often used by people who have thin and dull hair. By removing dirt and grime from the hair, it also repairs dry and damaged hair.
How to Use Rosemary Essential Oil for Hair
Dilute the essential oil (3-5 drops) with a carrier oil like Jojoba oil and apply it to your hair. Massage into hair and shampoo after 10 minutes. Do this 2-3 times a week for best results.
It is advised to avoid rosemary oil if you’re pregnant, epileptic or have high blood pressure. Also, never use more than 5 drops as essential oils are highly concentrated.
