Rosemary Oil is as effective as Minoxidil for Androgenetic Alopecia

The Traditional Use of Rosemary

Rosemary is a popular herb that has been used in culinary preparations and traditional herbal medicine for centuries. Botanically known as Rosmarinus Officinalis, the essential oil of rosemary is also frequently used in aromatherapy for the treatment of various conditions including improving memory and supporting hair growth.

Rosemary Oil Promotes Hair Growth

A study published in the Phytotherapy Research suggested that Rosemary contains phytochemicals that suppress the action of enzyme 5-alpha-reductase in converting testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. Dihydrotestosterone is the androgen hormone that causes the hair follicles in some men and women to stop growing hair.

The exact mechanism and components of Rosemary extract or essential oil that promote hair growth are still yet to be identified and studied further. Nevertheless, it is one of the very promising ingredients to fight hair loss.

Rosemary Oil vs Minoxidil

A comparison study between the hair-growth-boosting properties of Rosemary Oil and Minoxidil showed that rosemary is equally as effective as Minoxidil in promoting hair growth in people with androgenetic alopecia (Skinmed - Dermatology for the Clinician).

Rosemary in Hair Loss Solution Products

Due to its ability to reduce dihydrotestosterone levels in hair follicles, Rosemary is one of the favourite herbs for the treatment of hair loss. I use Rosemary oil in my hair loss formulas, Hair Growth Serum and Scalp Stimulator. I formulated these products to solve my own hereditary hair loss problems.

My hair especially on the front and crown of the scalp have been affected by androgenetic alopecia. Fortunately, with regular daily use of Hair Growth Serum and Scalp Stimulator, my hair slowly grows back. When you are dealing with hair loss, you need to be patient and discipline in using the treatment products. Hair can only grow up to a quarter of an inch per month, so it takes time to see visible results.

Hair Growth Serum is a water-based hair growth stimulator that contains caffeine, niacinamide, menthol, thyme, cedarwood and rosemary oil to promote hair growth and reduce hair loss. For best results, use it twice a day, morning and evening. It is quickly absorbed, soon after you apply this serum to the affected areas of the scalp; you can style your hair as usual. 

Scalp Stimulator is an oil-based pre-shampoo scalp rejuvenator. I love the instant cooling sensation every time I apply Scalp Stimulator on my scalp. Formulated with vitamin E, menthol, rosemary, lemon, rice bran and cannabis sativa oil; Scalp Stimulator should be gently massaged into the affected areas of the scalp to rejuvenate hair follicles and improve the condition of thinning hair. Leave it for at least 20 minutes before you wash your hair with gentle shampoo. For best results, use it once a day.
