Rosemary’s Mane Potential

Rosemary’s Mane Potential

You may see rosemary and be thinking about your roast potatoes, but, rosemary is so much more than just seasoning on a Sunday!

Rosemary’s use dates back to ancient civilisations like the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. They valued it for everything from boosting memory and aiding digestion to easing muscle and joint pain. Although rosemary's medicinal use has declined with the take over of modern medicine, there's still a sprinkle of research supporting some of rosemary's traditional uses.

Now, science may not have all the answers when it comes to rosemary, but sometimes, anecdotes speak volumes. After all, who better to trust than the people who've been using it for centuries? What science does confirm, though, is its potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.

Rosemary for Hair:

Enter the era of rosemary hair treatments! Over the past few years, rosemary has been known as the go-to herb in hair care. There could be many ways rosemary works wonders for hair, but with our top inquiries being related to hair growth, we thought we would focus our attention there. We've done a little anecdotal research, and the feedback has been pretty amazing. So, it’s no wonder that many of our hair products already contain a dose of rosemary.

Rosemary oil, in particular, is believed to stimulate hair follicles. It's known to kickstart hair growth by stimulating those sleepy follicles and enhancing scalp circulation. Could regular scalp massages with a concoction of diluted rosemary oil and castor oil, be the ticket to thicker, fuller locks? Maybe so!

Additionally, rosemary oil has been shown to inhibit the production of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a hormone associated with hair loss. Therefore, the application of rosemary could help for those who are losing hair due to imbalanced hormones.

And let's not forget rosemary’s many other benefits, with its antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Rosemary works to create the perfect environment for your scalp to flourish, whilst guarding it from dryness, itching, and dandruff, offering daily protection for our sensitive scalps.

What You Need to Grow with Rosemary:

We are asked all the time in the shop, about rosemary for hair growth. So, to address this demand, we have put together the best products to use as part of a rosemary oil treatment and to enhance the benefits from within. Below, you'll find everything you need to grow with rosemary:

Rosemary Oil: A few studies have shown that rosemary oil can indeed stimulate hair growth by enhancing blood circulation to the scalp and encouraging the growth of hair follicle cells. Rosemary also proves to be a game changer as a promising support for androgenic alopecia, a common form of hair loss (involving the hormone DHT we mentioned earlier). One particular study found that over a period of six months, people experienced a significant increase in hair count after incorporating rosemary oil into their hair care routine!

Castor Oil: Considered the ultimate companion to rosemary oil, castor oil brings its own set of remarkable benefits to the table, especially for hair health (and we've even heard of its magic on eyelashes!). Rich in ricinoleic acid, castor oil has been known to kickstart hair growth by boosting scalp circulation and nourishing hair follicles from root to tip. When paired with rosemary oil, both ingredients work synergistically to enhance circulation and stimulate hair follicles, effectively promoting healthier and stronger hair growth.

Dr Hauschka Shampoo & Conditioner: A beautiful shampoo and conditioner that fits perfectly in our Rosemary for Hair Box. This gorgeous duo offers complete bliss from all natural ingredients. The silicone-free shampoo includes apricot kernel oil, medicinal plants, and a protein-rich chickpea extract, plus rosemary, neem, and quince for nourished locks from root to tip.
Paired with the conditioner, which contains neem, coconut oil, and apple cider vinegar, this duo leaves hair shiny, soft, and manageable, without weighing it down. It's the perfect starting point for your quest to healthy, luscious locks.

YourGut Glow: While we can talk about topical things for hair growth, there's also helpful things we can do from within! This wonderful Skin, Hair and Nails formula is packed with everything else you'd want for radiant hair, skin, and nails. Features high levels of biotin, one of the most well researched nutrients for optimising hair growth, combined with strengthening MSM, probiotics, collagen supportive vitamin C and packed with natural antioxidants. We believe in complementing the wonders of rosemary with a wonderful supplement to help support healthy hair from the inside out. And YourGut Glow is our go-to recommendation for those seeking comprehensive support for their hair, skin, and nails. With its unique formulation designed to nurture your inner glow, this supplement has shown to works wonders.
