Rosemary can be used on the scalp to help thicken and regrow hair. Some believe that rosemary essential oil is as effective at re-growing thinning hair as minoxidil, better known as Rogaine.

Rosemary has also been used traditionally to encourage a healthy scalp and eliminate dandruff.

Ingredients list:

[ ] 2 tablespoons fresh Rosemary leaves or 1 tablespoon dried rosemary leaves

[ ] 2 cups Water

Bring the water to a boil, then add rosemary leaves. Then reduce the heat, and simmer, covered – to avoid the loss of volatile oils in the steam – for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it sit in the pot to cool. The water will turn a dark brown. You may see an oil film on the surface, and that’s ok – it’s the rosemary oil. Strain out the rosemary leaves, and proceed by stirring the mixture.

Use as a final rinse over the hair in your shower routine. Slowly pour the rinse over your hair. Massage the infusion into your scalp and hair and let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes then rinse thoroughly. This stimulating rinse will help condition both hair and scalp. Do this rinse twice a week after shampooing and conditioning your hair.

** This quantity should be suitable for at least 2 to 4 applications depending on the length of your hair. Store it in the fridge between uses – it will stay good for up to two weeks.

P.S: Avoid this recipe if you do not wish to darken your hair color.
