How to Use Rosemary for Promoting Hair Growth
Regular use of rosemary oil helps stimulate follicles, making hair grow longer and faster. It is also believed that essential oil slows down premature hair loss and graying of the hair.
1. Daily Shampooing
For nourishing your hair on a daily basis add rosemary essential oil to your shampoo or conditioner. Use 10-12 drops of oil for every 30 ml of shampoo or conditioner.
2. Hot Oil Treatment Once or Twice a Week
Once a week use a hot oil treatment for your hair and scalp. Mix a few tablespoons of a carrier oil (such as almond oil, jojoba or castor etc) and a few drops of rosemary essential oil (about 3-4 drops of rosemary oil to one tablespoon of carrier oil) in a small glass jar that can be sealed. Place the jar in a bowl of hot water until the oil is warm.
Gradually massage the entire amount using your fingertips into your dry scalp for several minutes. Make sure to apply a little blend down the length of your hair until the ends. Wrap your hair with plastic wrap or plastic shower cap, and then cover it with a very warm damp towel.
Replace with another warm towel once the first one has cooled. Leave the blend for at least 30-45. You can stay with it overnight, and if you do this, remove the plastic wrap and sleep with a dry towel on your pillow to absorb the oil. Then rinse and lightly shampoo your hair with a chemical free shampoo. Follow with conditioner if you want.
