Rosemary has been used from ancient times to treat hair fall and grey hair, rosemary essential oil extracted from rosemary is great for promoting hair growth and arresting hair fall. We can mix rosemary essential oil with a base oil like coconut oil and use for hair growth or add it to shampoos but I like to make a hair spray with rosemary essential oil and it is very effective in promoting hair growth.

Rosemary improves blood circulation in the scalp which in turn promotes hair growth. Rosemary is an amazing plant to use for treating hair loss at home as it stops hair fall and promotes new hair growth very very effectively. It also treats dandruff, scalp itchiness and dryness very well. It protects our hair from damage and breakage and also strengthens hair if used regularly.

Male pattern baldness is usually caused due to genetics, that is having a family history of baldness. Baldness is caused due to hormone called DHT, some men have it in excess.

Even women can have excess amount of it, even a tiny bit more will result in hair loss for women. We can easily make this baldness hair spray that stops hair loss and promotes new hair growth at home using rosemary essential oil, fresh rosemary and fenugreek seeds.

Fenugreek is an another ingredient that is wonderful to add in this baldness hair spray recipe. Fenugreek is a natural conditioner that helps soften the hair naturally. It also treats dandruff and arrests hair fall very very quickly.

Regular use of this hair spray daily will greatly arrest hair fall and promote new hair growth. To use, take it in a spray bottle and spray on the scalp. Massage gently for a few seconds, wait for it to dry naturally and then leave it on overnight. You will start seeing results only after months of regular usage daily.

    Hi RamyaDo we have to wash our hair after applying the spray? You have mentioned to use the spray daily. Does it mean it is like applying oil and you don't have to wash it?

      Hi Pavithra, You can spray it on the hair, let it dry on the scalp for few minutes, leave it on over night and then have hair wash the next day…

    Hi RamyaThank you so much for your reply. Can I use this for my girls, she is having a really dry scalp and also dandruff? And I also read about your ginger oil. Does it really help in hair growth? I'm facing severe hair fall and as I also have sinusitis I'm very sceptical to do oil massage. Can I safely try ginger oil? Will be really helpful if you can suggest something. Your site is simply mind-blowing. Kudos to you for sharing so many wonderful things.

    I love many of your recipes but this is not safe. Oil and water don’t mix and you have no preservatives.

    Definitely not safe for animals whether inhaled or ingested but it’s perfectly fine for your scalp.
