If you suffer from hair loss, your hair lacks shine and luster or you have a lot of split ends, then it's about time you're told about the hair benefits of rosemary.
Rosemary grows all year long, especially in hot and dry climates. Its green and grey leaves are needle-shaped with a blue flowering.
This is an ancient herb that has been used in many cultures over thousands of years. Conventional medicine has used it mainly to treat headaches, migraines and digestive problems.
However, it turns out that rosemary is good for at least one more thing - it has the ability to strengthen the hair roots and prevent loss.
The method is extremely simple, and the secret is in the brewing!
First, take a little branch of rosemary, and pick off the leaves.
Second, put the leaves in a pot of water and bring to the boil.
Third, after it boils, you'll need to let the brew cool (with the leaves in it) for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, you can take out the leaves and transfer the brew to a container that you can store in the refrigerator to keep fresh.
When you're taking a shower and washing your hair, wet your scalp and pour the rosemary brew on it. You should massage your scalp to make sure your hair is really soaked in the brew.
Since the brew has been sitting in the fridge, it may be uncomfortable for a few seconds before you get used to it.
There is no need to use the entire batch - just enough to cover all of your hair.
After you massage the rosemary in, do not wash your hair, rather put a towel over it and leave it for about 10 minutes to allow the brew to seep into the weak hair roots.
The towel may turn red, but this will come off in the laundry. Your hair will become shinier and stronger, and will not break as much.
After using the brew, you'll be free to return to your regular shower schedule. You can use it every day, since it is a natural, and not a chemical solution.
For head lice: Brew 50 grams of rosemary in a liter of boiling water for 15 minutes, and then filter. Then allow the mixture to cool. When in the shower, pour on your head after having washed it.
For a head cold, the flu, headache, throat inflammation and digestive diseases: brew 5-7 leaves of rosemary in a glass of hot water, make sweet with honey, soak for 3 minutes and drink.
