One of the biggest problems most people face is the thinning down of their hair as they get older. The hair succumbs to damage, breakage, and hair loss and our hair begin to thin out. Also, there are external factors too that can contribute to hair thinning like the water we use on our hair, the products, sun damage, hair treatments, and many more.


Well, while hair thinning is inevitable, there are ways we can use to regrow thinning hair and improve hair growth.

The best way to regrow thinning hair is by choosing a natural remedy and what’s better than this one super helpful essential oil – rosemary essential oil!

Here are the benefits of using rosemary essential oil on your hair:

  • The properties of anti-inflammation in rosemary essential oil can help prevent and treat scalp conditions and reduce hair fall.

  • It helps promote hair growth by healing the damaged hair follicles as it has carnosic acid, which is an active ingredient present in plants that is known to help heal damaged nerves and tissues. This property of rosemary essential oil can heal nerve endings and could possibly stimulate the rejuvenation of hair follicles, in turn restoring hair growth.

  • Rosemary essential oil can help promote better blood circulation in the scalp to regrow thinning hair as certain times the hair follicles remain dormant and proper stimulation can help it begin to grow hair again. Proper blood circulation is of utmost importance because when the blood flows to the scalp it can stimulate hair follicle growth from within and stimulate better hair growth right from the root, so the hair grows out stronger and healthier.

How to use rosemary essential oil on your hair?

Caution: Rosemary essential oil (or any essential oil for that matter) is very potent and cannot be used directly on the hair or skin. It has to be diluted before use.

Here are two easy ways to use rosemary essential oil for your hair:

1. Add it into your hair oil and massage it in:


2 tbsp carrier oil

A few drops of rosemary essential oil

Note: You can use any carrier oil of your choice like black seed oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, almond oil, argan oil etc.

Method and usage:

Into 2 tbsp of carrier oil, add in 2 to 4 drops of rosemary essential oil and mix well.

Then to use, partition your hair and evenly apply this on your scalp and massage it in using circular motions. Then let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes before washing off with a mild shampoo and conditioner. You can do this once or up to twice a week for the best results.

2. Add it to your shampoo and wash your hair with it:


2 tbsp shampoo

A few drops of rosemary essential oil

1 tsp coconut oil or black seed oil (optional)

Method and usage:

Into a mixing bowl, add some shampoo (you can add in as much as you’d use for a one-time hair wash). Then, add in a few drops of the rosemary essential oil, along with the coconut oil or black seed oil (optional for those with dry hair), and mix this well.

To use, wet your hair well under running water and then apply this shampoo mixture evenly all over your scalp and hair. Then, using your fingertips, massage it in gently so that it lathers well.
