Having more time at home lately, I have done some researches on the internet about natural ingredients that you can use at home for the benefit of your hair.
While I was researching I came across Rosemary oil which reduces hair loss and increases new growth. This sounds amazing! Rosemary oil is a very fragrant herb, It’s not floral like rose, but it has the hint of sweetness and a fresh smell.

I figured apple cider vinegar is one of those ingredients most of us have in our cupboard so here are some recipes to try:⠀ ⠀ Conditioning hair rinse: half water and half ACV - I love to first boil the water with some rosemary leaves⠀ ⠀ Facial cleanser & toner: 1 tablespoon of ACV into 1 glass of warm water. Use it to wash your face or apply as a toner with a reusable cotton roundel. ⠀ Deep cleansing face mask (great for dark spots!): mix 1 teaspoon of ACV with 1 teaspoon of warm water and add to your favourite clay. Optional: add half teaspoon of your favourite oil (I love sweet almond or grapeseed). Mix, apply avoiding the eyes area and remove after 5 minutes washing it off with warm water. ⠀ ⠀ How do you use ACV in your zero Waste beauty routine?
Did you know... Rosemary is one the oldest known plants to be used in food, medicine and magic. Sprigs of rosemary were burnt in the shrines to drive away illness as well as evil spirits.
Rosemary oil helps to increases scalp circulation. This is vital because one of the reasons for thinning hair is insufficient blood flow to the scalp due to stress. Rosemary oil can improve blood flow to the scalp, boost your mood and decreases the stress hormone cortisol and this will save your hair - amazing!
You can use the rosemary oil in your hair with a variety of other ingredients.
For example you can mix:
- 10 drops rosemary essential oil, 2 tablespoons Olive oil, 1 teaspoon Castor oil.
- 10 drop Rosemary essential oil, 2 tablespoon Aloe vera gel
-10 drops rosemary essential oil, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon olive oil.
