5 reasons why rosewater is good for hair

Rosewater has been used for centuries in medicine, gastronomy, and cosmetics, and is found in creams, but also as a preparation that can be used separately. It is popular because of its pleasant scent and antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, and here are 5 reasons why we could include rose water in hair care:

Soothes the scalp

Rosewater has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that soothe irritated, inflamed skin and itching. If you feel discomfort on your scalp, rose water could help alleviate these ailments.

Fight dandruff

Due to its moisturizing properties, rose water is an excellent ingredient for removing dandruff. In addition to the aesthetic impression, dandruff can also cause irritation and itching. Since rose water has ingredients that soothe irritated scalp, it further encourages its regeneration. When your scalp barrier is restored, you will also notice a reduction in dandruff.

Stimulates hair growth

Rosewater is rich in vitamins A, C, D, E, and B3. These nutrients are essential for maintaining the health of the skin, hair, and our entire body. When rose water is sprayed directly on the scalp, they penetrate the skin and hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.

It acts as a conditioner

Rosewater is extremely hydrating, so it is always recommended for people with dry skin. It is good to have it on hand outside when your hair starts to look rough and worn. Keep it in a spray bottle and spray it on your hair. The same goes for dry tops that will hydrate and soften again.

Strengthens hair

Thanks to vitamins, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties, rose water strengthens every strand of your hair. Not only does it stimulate hair growth, but it also reduces hair loss and breakage which makes hair healthier.

How to use it?

It can be applied directly to the hair and scalp, 2-3 times a week. Excessive use could affect the pH imbalance of the scalp and thus be counterproductive.

After shampooing: Rinse your hair with rose water after shampooing or after using shampoo and conditioner. You can rinse it off after a couple of hours or leave it in your hair.

Add it to shampoo or conditioner: you can add it yourself or get preparations that already contain rose water.

Spray on hair and scalp: to soothe 'frizzy' hair and great scent.

Apply to the scalp: Using a cotton ball, gently massage into the scalp before washing your hair.
