The Amazing Benefits of Rosemary Oil: Hair Growth, Dandruff, and Grays

The Amazing Benefits of Rosemary Oil: Hair Growth, Dandruff, and Grays

Hair loss can be devastating, and a real blow to your self-esteem. There are numerous creams and treatments out there, but little have proven success. Before you give up on your dreams of luxurious locks completely, though, try rosemary oil.

That’s right! Rosemary can do more than garnish your lamb roast. It can halt hair loss too!

Rosemary oil has long been used in the Mediterranean because of its antiseptic properties. As a highly concentrated form of the plan compound, this essential oil is perfect for beauty and healthcare products.

Being more natural than chemically-charged ointments makes it a better alternative for hair growth too.

Why Your Hair Loves Rosemary Oil

Rosemary oil has been shown to increase hair growth. While this may not be true for every individual, it is certainly worth a try, especially if other treatments have been unsuccessful.

While you can make your own shampoo at home, some high-quality shampoos, like the Hair La Vie Shampoo, contain rosemary oil already. This offers not only convenience, but also the peace of mind of knowing you always have the right amount.

The healing and hair growth properties of rosemary oil stem from the basic health benefits the oil provides. These include:

♦ It is a strong antiseptic agent.

♦ It has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

♦ It promotes nerve growth.

♦ It improves circulation.

Helping With Hair Loss

Hair loss typically results from starved hair follicles that essentially die and fall out. It also happens as a result of hormonal imbalance, infection, and aging.

"

By increasing circulation to the scalp, rosemary oil helps these hair follicles receive more blood. This prevents follicles from dying and restores strength to hair weakened by any number of different conditions.

The improved blood flow can also help to reduce the appearance of gray hairs and clears up itchy, dry scalp. You no longer have to worry about disapproving looks as you buy dandruff shampoo or color to hide your gray.

Rosemary oil lets you fly under the radar of those nosey onlookers!

As with most super heroes, rosemary oil comes with a weakness. It cannot help hair loss that results from chemotherapy or conditions related to hair-pulling behavior.

But it does help promote hair growth and even reverses hair loss for so many other circumstances that it can still save the day for many.

Male-pattern baldness typically affects men, as the name suggest. However, because it is related to testosterone, and women carry this hormone too, they can also be affected.

A byproduct of testosterone known as DHT attacks hair follicles, causing them to die and fall out. Rosemary oil treatment prevents DHT from binding to hormone receptors, thus disabling its ability to attack hair follicles.

Alopecia is a hair-loss condition that impacts women and can be devastating. With hair being one of the defining features of beauty and femininity, complete hair loss can be catastrophic to a woman’s self-esteem. When treated with rosemary oil, women saw improvement in their condition after 6 months, as compared to those who used a type of Rogaine.

How to Add a Little Rosemary to Your Life

If you have genetic indicators that predict hair loss, if you already notice some thinning, or if you just want to be proactive, you can start using rosemary oil today to improve the health of your scalp and hair.

As a natural alternative to medicated shampoos and ointments, this essential oil has reduced risk of side effects and only needs to be used once or twice a week. Here’s what you should do:

Massage it directly onto your scalp: Using about 5 drops of the oil, massage it into your scalp after a bath or shower. It is a good idea to mix it with a carrier, like coconut oil. You do not necessarily have to rinse it out, but, if you do, make sure it sits on your scalp for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing.

Use a shampoo containing rosemary oil: Obviously the most convenient choice is just to have rosemary oil in your shampoo already. In fact, you can improve your treatment by using a conditioner with rosemary oil in it together with your shampoo.

Mix it into your shampoo: Add about 5 drops per ounce of shampoo and then wash as normal. Alternatively, you can make your own homemade shampoo, using rosemary and other essential oils. There are numerous online recipes for shampoo bases that you can use.

Final Thoughts

Science supports the use of rosemary oil in promoting hair health. Not only is hair loss prevention possible, you can also reverse it.

Regular treatment with rosemary oil can improve scalp health while promoting hair growth and strength. We know how important your hair is to you, which is why a vial of rosemary essential oil should have a front row seat in your vanity case.
