For centuries herbs have been a constant aid in our lives. We have used them for ailments and nourishment, and while more synthetic means have taken over, many of our needs are still met by herbs. They are very popular now and for good reason. As more people realize the benefits of natural and organic ingredients, more cosmetic products are being formulated with herbs. Many women are trying to live healthier and use more natural ingredients and products, and this is trickling into the curly hair movement. We are seeing a reintroduction to herbs that most of us have only seen in our spice cabinet. Rosemary is one of the most beneficial herbs with its ability to be consumed and externally applied.
Rosemary is related to the mint family of herbs like lavender, sage, and peppermint. It’s green with needle-like leaves and has many benefits for hair. It can stimulate hair growth, increase shine, and has antibacterial properties great for cleansing your hair and scalp. It relieves dandruff and other scalp ailments and can be used as a hair tea rinse. You simply boil water, add rosemary, and allow it to steep for 15 to 30 minutes. Do not rinse out and enjoy the healthy benefits. If the DIY path is not for you, check out these 10 shampoos with rosemary to help your strands.
