Why Rosemary is a game changer for your hair

Why rosemary is a game changer for your hair growth


For centuries, the fragrant herb rosemary has graced kitchens and gardens, adding a touch of magic to culinary creations and aromatic delight. But did you know this versatile herb holds a secret weapon for your hair? That's right, rosemary can be a game-changer in your hair care routine, promoting growth, enhancing strength, and adding shine you'll love.

Indian women have long embraced the power of natural ingredients for their hair, and rosemary perfectly fits the bill. Let's delve into how this wonder herb can transform your tresses and answer all your burning questions about using it:

Does Rosemary Help Hair Growth?

Studies suggest that rosemary may promote hair growth by stimulating blood circulation in the scalp and potentially inhibiting the enzyme responsible for hair loss. The herb can speed up the process of cell turnover and growth, which can work as a natural remedy to grow thicker hair. Since it is an anti-inflammatory, it is used for preventing hair loss, as well as regrowth. While individual results vary, many users report thicker, fuller hair with regular use 

 3 ways of using Rosemary for hair 

3 ways of using Rosemary oil for hair growth

There are multiple ways to harness the power of rosemary for your hair:

  1. Rosemary Oil: Dilute pure rosemary oil with a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba oil (in a 5:1 ratio) and massage it gently into your scalp. We recommend leaving rosemary oil in your hair (diluted) from 30 minutes to an hour before washing your hair. 
  2. Rosemary Tea Rinse: Steep fresh or dried rosemary leaves in hot water for 15 minutes. Let it cool and strain the liquid. After shampooing, use this as a final rinse and leave it in for 5-10 minutes before rinsing again.
  3. Rosemary Infused Hair Products: Look for shampoos, conditioners, or hair masks infused with rosemary extract. These offer a convenient way to reap the benefits without DIY preparation. Our aromatherapy hair cleanser Kesika is enriched with the goodness of Rosemary, Tea Tree, and Neem. 

    Can We Store Rosemary Water Without Fridge?

    Rosemary water stored at room temperature can last for a couple of days. For longer storage (up to a week), keep it refrigerated. Freezing is an option for an even longer shelf life, but be sure to thaw it completely before use.

    Is it OK to Apply Rosemary Water on Hair Everyday?

    While regular use is beneficial, daily application might be excessive for some hair types. Start with 2-3 times a week and adjust based on your hair's needs. Listen to your hair and scalp – if they feel irritated, reduce the frequency or dilute the solution further.

    Can I Apply Rosemary Water on Oiled Hair?

    It's best to apply rosemary water on clean, dry hair, or at least 30 minutes after oiling. Applying it on oiled hair can hinder absorption and might weigh down your strands. For best results, apply the rosemary water after you wash your hair, making it the last step in your hair care routine. 

    However, if you’re using rosemary oil or spray, use it before washing your hair to allow maximum scalp absorption. 

    Does Rosemary Darken Your Hair?

    Rosemary oil won't permanently darken your hair like chemical dyes. However, its properties may enhance natural pigments, lending a slight darkening effect to darker hair shades.

    Additional Tips:

    1. Always do a patch test on your inner arm before applying rosemary oil directly to your scalp to check for any allergic reactions.
    2. Consult a dermatologist if you have any pre-existing scalp conditions or concerns.
    3. Be patient! As rosemary is a natural ingredient, it may take several weeks to become noticeable


    Rosemary offers a natural, affordable, and effective way to nurture your hair. Whether you seek growth, strength, or simply healthier, shinier locks, incorporating this wonder herb into your routine can be a game-changer.

    Remember, consistency is key! So, embrace the rosemary revolution and witness the transformation as your hair thrives with this natural treasure.
