Rosemary Effects on Hair

Rosemary tea and rosemary oil are both used extensively in hair care routines for very good reasons. Rosemary stimulates hair follicles, causing hair to grow long and strong. Rosemary also combats premature hair loss and stops hair from falling out during brushing, shampooing or just daily living. This can be an especially important benefit for women who have PCOS or hormone related hair loss, for people with alopecia areata or for people who are concerned with balding. If you are concerned with battling grey hair, rosemary can help with that as well. Rosemary promotes pigmentation in the hair, preventing premature grey hair and even reversing grey hair in some cases. Dry, flaky scalp, and the often resulting dandruff, can also be remedied using rosemary. The detoxifying and disinfecting attributes of rosemary oil, combined with its invigorating qualities, make your scalp and hair healthy and flake-free with regular use. So how does rosemary work for hair growth and hair health? One of rosemary's principle actions is increasing circulation to the scalp. This increase in circulation to the scalp results in renewed cellular health and increases the nutrients delivered to the scalp and hair. How is rosemary oil used? Rosemary oil is best used directly on the scalp, and can be mixed with other hair health herbs such as fenugreek, sage, bhringraj, horsetail or aloe vera. Rosemary can also be used as a tea rinse for hair, or made into a rosemary infused vinegar rinse for hair.

Hello everyone, As a hairstylist for 5 years my clients always ask me the same question, "what is the best product for my hair?" Since I'm not product biased I can't always predetermine that a specific line will work for them like a miracle, but thankfully nature has helped me to create "natural hair remedies" that I give them and in most if not all occasions they seem to work for them. Here is one of my favorites because its quick and easy. Ingredients: -banana -egg yolk -honey mix them all together to get a thick consistency. On dry not shampooed hair (dirty hair) run the treatment from roots to end, let it sit for at least 15 minutes (the longer the better) and then shampoo and condition your hair. Not only will your hair smell delicious but the bananas and egg yolk will help create strength in your hair and the honey will nourish and provide shine to the hair. I hope this has been helpful and I will be sure to keep coming back to share other trick. Wish you all an awesome day.
