There are thousands of TikToks where people claim rosemary water allowed them to achieve longer, stronger, shinier strands. But is it true? Is this water the secret ingredient to better hair? Dr. Batra does confirm that this water is actually very beneficial for the hair, it’s not just some TikTok gimmick. What makes it so potent for your tresses is the oil. “Rosemary oil is a natural remedy with data to support its role in decreasing hair loss and in promoting hair and scalp health,” Dr. Batra notes. Not only can it boost hair growth, but it also keeps your scalp healthy. And as we always say (maybe a little too much), healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp.
When it comes to getting the most out of rosemary water for your hair, Dr. Batra points out that consistency is key. You likely won’t see results overnight, so don’t get discouraged. It will take quite a bit of time for the elixir to work its powers on your strands. “In a clinical trial, it took six months of use to see a significant benefit,” Dr. Batra shares. Her favorite way to reap the rewards of rosemary? She suggests “applying rosemary oil solution to the scalp overnight and washing it out in the morning.” It’s as simple as that.
The most well-known way to use rosemary water is in the form of a hair rinse. Dr. Batra was kind enough to share her go-to rosemary hair rinse, which is relatively easy to make. We’ll break down the steps now:
*Boil one quart of distilled water.
*Add a handful of dried rosemary leaves.
*Allow to steep for five hours.
*Once cooled, the mixture can be diluted either in water to form a rinse or in shampoo. In either case, create a 4-to-1 ratio.
*Use the rosemary water hair rinse in your hair after you’ve shampooed your hair. Then, rinse out.
For a rosemary oil scalp treatment, one drop of rosemary oil can be mixed with six drops of coconut oil, then massaged into the scalp and left on overnight.

Whether you are a chronic lightener or curling wand addict, there are certain types of hair that are more prone to damage than others. Curly, wavy and fine hair are generally considered to be on the more delicate side. The “big chop” is actually a term popularized by the naturally curly community in reference to dramatic, short haircuts gotten to encourage new, healthier hair growth. Those of us who often chemically treat or use heat to style our haircut experience a LOT of damage. While a consistent care routine can help to lessen the effects, sometimes the impact is just too much for our hair to handle. The only answer at that point is to start completely fresh. If your hair is limp, dull, extremely dry or you are experiencing breakage and you have tried both at-home and in-salon treatments with little to no improvement, it may be time to consider the Big Chop.
