Has anyone tried rosemary oil?

In all honesty the only thing that I have found rosemary all to benefit is a roast lamb. No sarcasm intended. It's just that I have looked at all these things over the past 36 years and personally the best results come from meds if one is able to tolerate them. All the best!

Helping with the dandruff makes sense. After all, flakes are typically a result of using a shampoo with alcohol, (which dries the scalp). Not sure about the stimulating part.  As Gatsby states, the only benefit from oil is roasting.  Do not go near the stove.....

Just typed "Rosemary" into the the search bar to see if this had been covered.

There's some evidence for the efficacy of Rosemary Oil when compared to Minoxidil in helping with hair loss. I've requested the full paper from the authors as there's details missing from the abstract (such as frequency & quantities of application):

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25842469/

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22517595/

I'll hopefully be able to update with the full details if I get the full paper from the authors, but Rosemary Oil may be effective long term indeed, and is probably worth a go given the comparative costs with Minoxidil. Just a FYI for anyone passing by! :)

I've been using it for 2 months, I apply and massage the oil to my head and leave it on over night. Before rosemary, when i brush through my hair with my hands, 4-5 hairs fall out, after rosemary it's 0-2. I've been doing the test for a long while. Skeptical still but I'm going to give it a full 6 months to see if there's any potential growth. Also, one time after washing my hair I then went for 3 days without touching anything, just to see if it would go back to the old 4-5-6 hairs falling off, it was still 0-2, it might really be effective, it's just too early to tell, but if it really does stop DHT from binding to the hair follicles, that would be amazing.
