If you’re looking to improve the overall thickness of your red hair and promote hair growth, you might want to consider using rosemary oil. Since rosemary oil improves cellular generation, it’s wonderful for promoting strong, healthy hair.
1. Benefits of rosemary oil for red hair
- Hair growth when used consistently over several months
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Improves blood circulation
- Strengthens hair follicles for healthier hair
- Can help with scalp itch
2. Apply rosemary oil overnight
A wonderful way to use essential oils on your hair is an overnight mask. This allows the oils time to soak in and penetrate the scalp and hair follicles.
When making an overnight oil mask, it’s important to dilute the rosemary oil. Rosemary oil is very concentrated and can cause irritation to the scalp if applied directly. You should use a carrier oil like olive oil, coconut oil, or jojoba oil to dilute your rosemary oil.
Simply add a few drops of rosemary oil to your carrier oil and combine. Massage into the scalp until saturated but not dripping. It’s best to focus your mask on the roots for optimal results. To keep things from getting messy, tie your hair up in a top knot and secure an old t-shirt or shower cap around the head.
3. Use rosemary oil with your shampoo and conditioner
Add rosemary oil to your shampoo or conditioner to get the benefits while washing your hair. Just be sure to thoroughly wash your hair to get the product out well.
4. Use rosemary products
If you aren’t into mixing items at home, you can use products that already include rosemary oil as a main ingredient.
Rock it like a Redhead!
