Can Rosemary Oil treat hair loss?
The claims that Rosemary oil can help to regrow hair may be due to the list of benefits that the herbs oil has which include:
- Promotes nerve growth
- Increases blood circulation
Like Peppermint Oil, Rosemary Oil is known to increase blood circulation when applied topically to the scalp which will provide oxygen rich blood flow to hair follicles. Further to its stimulating properties, Rosemary oil can be an amazing treatment for irritated or damaged skin on the scalp due to its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to help repair nerves.
Is Rosemary Oil for hair growth backed by science?
Rosemary oil has been suggested as a potential solution for promoting hair growth, and there is some good evidence to support its efficacy.
One study found that applying rosemary oil to the scalp for 6 months led to a significant increase in hair growth, compared to the control group. While more research is needed to fully understand the impact of rosemary oil on hair growth, incorporating it into a hair care routine, along with a balanced diet and proper hair care, may positively contribute to hair growth.
In another trial from 2015 Rosemary Oil was shown to be as effective as Minoxidil (The commercial drug based treatment for hair loss found in products like Nioxin, Rogain and Regain)
The trial was designed to compare Rosemary essential oil and Minoxidil by using them on two separate human groups of subject experiencing androgenic alopecia (male/female pattern hair loss)
The results showed that Rosemary was just as effective as Minoxidil with the added exception that it had an overall better effect on the scalp, helping things such as dryness and irritation.
Minoxidil can however come with some unwanted side effects also being that it is originally a blood pressure drug including skin irritation, itchiness, dryness and even lightheadedness and palpitations.
In another study, Rosemary Leaf Extract (different from the essential oil) was investigated for its ability to help with hair loss as a result of Testosterone being the trigger. The results showed promising signs that Rosemary can promote hair growth in these cases.
There have also been several other studies that showed that using essential oils including Rosemary as part of a hair care routine can help with hair quality, scalp health and even hair regrowth.
In conclusion, if you are seeking a natural way to promote hair growth then Rosemary is the way to go.
How do you use Rosemary Oil for hair growth?
Here is how most people on Tik Tok are using Rosemary oil directly for promoting hair growth:
- Mix a few drops of Rosemary oil with a carrier oil, such as Coconut or Jojoba oil.
- Massage the mixture into your scalp, focusing on the roots of your hair.
- Leave the oil on for 30 minutes to an hour.
- Shampoo your hair as normal to remove the oil.
- Repeat the process once or twice a week.
Will Rosemary Oil make my hair greasy?
Rosemary oil is a relatively lightweight oil, so it may not make your hair greasy for some people. However, the amount of oil your hair can handle before it becomes greasy depends on several factors, such as your hair type, the condition of your scalp, and the amount of oil used.
In order to get the main hair growth benefits of Rosemary you would need to use the essential oil. As with most essential oils it is important to dilute them in a carrier oil such as Coconut or Jojoba oil. The downside of this is that these carrier oils can be great on skin but heavy on hair and you may need to shampoo your hair several times in order to remove the residue.
For this we have the ideal solution:

How long should I leave Rosemary oil on my scalp for hair growth?
The amount of time you should leave rosemary oil on your hair depends on several factors, including the condition of your scalp and hair, the amount of oil used, and the method of application.
Those with very thick, textured hair or those who regularly experience build-up from product use etc can benefit from leaving the oil on longer in order to deeply exfoliate the scalp in order to clear pores and create the ideal base for healthy hair growth. We recommend applying the En-Root oil directly to a dry scalp using the easy to apply nozzle and leave for between 20 minutes - 2 hours depending on how much time you have. The longer you can leave the scalp treatment on, the more time there is for the Rosemary leaf extract and other essential oils to penetrate the scalp, delivering its benefits to the hair follicles.
If you have sensitive skin or are concerned about any adverse effects, you may want to start with a shorter period of time, such as 15 minutes, and gradually increase the duration as your scalp adjusts.
When you are ready to remove the oil simply rinse thoroughly with water then follow with a light shampoo such as our Daily Calma Shampoo.
