As its name suggests, this popular new hair product is the natural oil extracted from the rosemary plant.

Rosemary oil has been found to boost circulation in the scalp (ensuring a healthy blood flow to the hairs may help to stop them falling out prematurely), as well as anti-inflammatory properties, which soothe scalp conditions such as eczema and dandruff.

Both of these benefits contribute to a healthier scalp – and in turn, healthier hair.

This particular rosemary oil is one of the most talked about ones on TikTok and also contains sweet almond and sunflower oils.

As it's pre-diluted it can be applied directly to the scalp, although a few Amazon shoppers seem to prefer to dilute it further with another oil such as olive.

Al'Iver Rosemary Essential Oil

Another popular Amazon pick with hundreds of five-star reviews, this one is 100% pure rosemary oil,

Like all-natural oils, it is naturally very potent, and applying it straight to the hair without being diluted will cause irritation, so it's recommended that you mix a few drops with another carrier oil such as jojoba or coconut.

Does rosemary oil really work?

According to TikTok, opinion appears divided about whether rosemary oil really helps hair to grow longer and thicker, with some users singing its praises and others seeming more sceptical.

One medical study from 2015, however, found it to be just as effective as a hair growth drug at increasing hair count amongst alopecia sufferers after six months.

Shoppers also appear to be convinced about its results, writing rave reviews for certain rosemary oil products.

One review for a popular rosemary oil on Amazon reads: "Even though I never fully think something will work based on what things are viral this stuff omg is the best – I never thought it would work as well as it did."

Another person wrote: "It's really helpful in hair fall. Highly recommended."

If you're seriously concerned about hair loss or other hair and scalp issues, however, speak to a doctor or trichologist.

How do I use rosemary oil on my hair?

How you use your rosemary oil depends on the product, as some come ready to apply while others need to be diluted first – so always read the instructions before applying.

The oil should be applied to the scalp and massaged in, paying particular attention to any thinning areas.

Experts recommend that the oil should be left on for at least 30 minutes (although not overnight, as it can block hair follicles) before washing out, and used 2-3 times a week for optimum results.
