Daily Dose of Nature


RoseMary Hair Rinse

Rosemary can be used on the scalp to help thicken and regrow hair. One study found that rosemary oil was as effective at regrowing thinning hair as minoxidil, better known as Rogaine. Rosemary has also been used traditionally to encourage a healthy scalp and eliminate dandruff. But research doesn’t yet support this use. Rosemary water may also be used to subtly darken your hair. Many women use it to cover grays.

Here are the benefits of rosemary hair rinse :

  • Nourishes hair follicles
  • Boosts thicker hair growth
  • Treats dandruff
  • Makes hair shiny & soft.

How to Prepare :

  • Add water in a saucepan along with dried rosemary leaves and let it simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Strain and pour the water into a spray bottle or mug and use it as your last hair rinse after conditioning.

      As with all herbs there are many different ways that rosemary can be applied externally onto your hair and scalp. These processes can be used with both fresh and dried herbs. But as with cooking, it is always recommended to use fresh ingredients. If you don’t use all of your herb initially, you can dry them and store for next time!

      Rosemary is very common and easily accessible herb. It is green in appearance with thin, needle-like leaves with a deep, pungent smell. When it comes to its contributions to hair it seems to be all-purpose. Here is a brief list of its uses and benefits to hair :

      Growth – Stimulates and improves circulation to the scalp thus encouraging hair growth
      Cleanser – Due to its antibacterial quality it gently cleanses hair
      Shine – Increases shine
      Scalp issues – Relieves irritated, dry, flaky, dandruff ridden scalps

      Before Pantene, Queen Helene and Head and Shoulders, women turned to their gardens, woods and fields for plants that met all of their beauty needs. Whether it be a cure to dandruff, premature balding, dull strands or a desire for a new color, there was a plant that they knew could meet their specific demands. I think that the more the world becomes synthetic, the less we truly understand the implications of allowing such chemicals, toxins and mad men creations into our bodies. It is important to be knowledgeable and at the very least know that there are natural alternatives to every single demand that humans require whether in sickness or health.

        I agree to every point you’ve made. I am coming to the stage of my life where less is better. I want to make my self care routine good, healthy, and simple. I want to be free of the stereotype of having to have long hair. I have given over to the beauty myth for too long, time to let go.

        Yes letting go of thoughts, things, beliefs, situations that bind us in our own vicious cycle of stagnation is a liberation.
