Rosemary essential oil is said to stimulate hair follicles and nourish the hair and scalp, making it beneficial for anyone looking for thicker and stronger hair. I am definitely one of those people in search of both, so I had to find out for myself.
A few months ago I noticed that my hairline was looking a bit thinner than normal. After some investigating I realized that my hair was actually breaking off close to the root. I color my hair for grey coverage and the grey strands were breaking where the new grey growth and the previously colored hair met. I decided to give my hair a break and (temporarily) embrace the grey. I also decided that this was the perfect time to test out that rosemary essential oil for hair growth theory. So, I created a hair serum to nourish my fragile strands and boost hair growth. The result? It did indeed help!
I noticed a big difference within a few weeks. The breakage slowed down and new hair was growing in. The results were so impressive that I even started using it on my eyebrows and I am happy to report that they are fuller than usual.
Please take into consideration that my thinning hair was actually due to breakage caused by me coloring my hair for just about 30 years (I am a hairstylists daughter through and through). I have no trouble with hair growth, I just wanted to give it a boost to grow the broken strands in a bit quicker and get my thickness back to normal. If you are experiencing any hair loss or breakage that is causing you concern, please visit your stylist and/or physician to get to the root of the problem (pun not intended-ha ha).
And now for the moment you’ve been waiting for… The recipe for my hair serum!
This serum is pretty thick due to the consistency of the castor oil. I wash my hair everyday so that’s not an issue for me. If you don’t wash your hair every day, you may want to use it only on the nights when you plan to wash your hair the next day.
If you are going to use this on your eyebrows please be careful. The dilution is low enough to be used on your face every day, but you don’t want it seeping into your eyes. One little drop is enough to rub into both brows. Don’t think you need more, it will slowly spread to the surrounding area from the warmth of your skin.
