Rosemary is native to the Mediterranean region, originally used by ancient civilizations for both culinary and medicinal reasons. Today, rosemary is commonly found in essential oils and used as a home remedy for a multitude of ailments because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

In regards to hair health, studies have shown that rosemary oil has the ability to reverse some symptoms of hair loss and promote hair growth.

Using rosemary oil for hair can help with: 

  • improved blood circulation in the scalp
  • hair loss prevention and regrowth 
  • anti-inflammatory skin cell protection 
  • lengthening and strengthening hair
  • great for an itchy scalp
  • could help with early gray hairs and dandruff

At Mielle Organics, we’ve tested and examined the fascinating results of rosemary oil in lengthening and strengthening natural hair and improving scalp condition, which is why we’ve decided to use it as a primary ingredient in our Rosemary Mint Collection. So let’s take a look at how rosemary oil can help you grow out your beautiful locks! You can browse our other hair oil treatments that also help promote healthy hair growth.

Rosemary Improves Blood Circulation in the Scalp

Rosemary comes from the same family as peppermint! Both peppermint and rosemary are known to stimulate blood flow and strengthen circulation. Oxygen is vital for a healthy scalp. When our circulatory system is disrupted, less oxygen is available to be transported throughout our body, which means less nutrition for our hair follicles. Starved hair follicles can result in hair thinning and premature hair loss.

We recommend using our Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil to keep your hair follicles healthy and stimulated. Massage this hair oil treatment to your scalp and comb through to the ends of your hair. Leave it in and style as you desire! This special blend is formulated with more than 30 essential oils and nutrients, including biotin, to promote thicker, stronger, and longer hair! Read thousands of reviews from satisfied customers on how it helped moisturize their scalp, restore their edges, and grow out their natural hair!

Can Rosemary Oil Prevent Hair Loss & Help With Hair Regrowth?

The short answer is yes, rosemary oil can help prevent hair loss triggered by testosterone. In 2013, researchers found that rosemary oil restored hair in mice who lost their hair due to testosterone. One of the reasons for hair loss, specifically in men, is because of an androgen called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which shrinks hair follicles and shortens their life cycles. Researchers found that rosemary oil might have prevented DHT from linking to hormone receptors, so that it would be unable to attack hair follicles.

Applying rosemary oil directly to the scalp can help promote healthy hair follicles and extend their life cycles. Mielle Organics recommends adding Rosemary Mint Strengthening Hair Masque to your daily routine to aid in preventing hair thinning and hair loss. Massage this product into your hair, from roots to ends, and wait 15-20 minutes for it to work its magic. Apply heat for an extra stimulating experience. Then rinse out the product for strong, beautiful, healthy hair!


Rosemary Protects Skin Cells

Because of its antiseptic properties, rosemary is safe for the skin. Its antioxidant properties also protects your skin from environmental agents like free radicals. So when you use rosemary oil on your scalp and your hair, you can rest assured that your skin and scalp will stay happy, free of irritation. Use Mielle’s Rosemary Mint Strengthening Edge Gel for delicate edges and sensitive skin.


Rosemary Lengthens and Strengthens Hair

While rosemary oil may not help you produce more hair, it will help you grow and strengthen the hair you do have. In another study, researchers assigned rosemary oil to one group of people and minoxidil (medication used to treat hair loss) to another group. At the end of the six-month study, both groups saw significant increases in hair growth, but the group who received rosemary oil reported less scalp itching!

For longer, great-smelling hair, we recommend using our Rosemary Mint Strengthening Shampoo before applying our Rosemary Mint Strengthening Oil. This shampoo is designed to gently cleanse your hair of product build-up, while bringing brittle hair back to life!


How to Use Rosemary Oil for Hair 

There are many ways you can use rosemary oil for your hair, which is why we created an entire collection of natural hair products with rosemary oil in them. You can either: 

  • Use rosemary oil directly on your scalp

How Long Does it Take for Rosemary Oil to Work on Hair

As with many things, it takes time to incorporate rosemary oil into your routine and start noticing a difference. The important thing is to make sure you are taking care of your hair and rosemary oil for hair is a great way to start a healthy hair routine.
