One of the most googled hair ingredients next to shampoo, according to Spate, is Rosemary oil.

What does Rosemary oil do? And does it really make our hair grow faster?
Rosemary oil, a sibling in the mint family, has soothing properties and says to boost circulation in your scalp and promote hair strength and even hair growth (1). It is also said to be good for dry and itchy scalps.
Other benefits of using rosemary oil in your haircare routine is that it might improve your mood and boost concentration! (2)
If you want to use the oil on its own, you can follow these easy steps.
HOW TO USE ROSEMARY OIL FOR HAIR HEALTH
Always do a patch test prior using any essential oil, to make sure you are not allergic! (make sure to check with your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding)
- Mix 2-3 drops of rosemary oil with 1 tbs carrier oil, like jojoba or argan oil
- Apply to scalp and massage it in after shampoo or mix a drop with your shampoo
- Rinse well and apply conditioner ( make sure it does not get into your eyes)

Here are some shampoos and scalp products that contain rosemary oil, that I am curious to try.
This shampoo that sparked the buzz , has been sold out in many stores already.
