The oil she is obsessed with is rosemary oil, a common essential oil and is well known for its multiple benefits.
Doctor Youn takes the video and asks whether it is FACT or CAP?
“Does Rosemary oil thicken hair?”
According to Youn, it is indeed a fact and some studies have suggested it could be as effective as Rogaine (Minoxidil), a medication used to treat hair loss.
The best part is, you can pick up a bottle of the oil to try for yourself for under a fiver.
In the video the girl uses the oil to massage the roots of her hair and uses any excess to go over the ends.
She lets the oil absorb overnight and then washes with shampoo and conditioner, you can also use a spray bottle and apply the oil that way.
Under the video Yuan cited a study which revealed that applying rosemary topically to the hair was comparable to Rogaine (minoxidil) for hair growth, but with less skin irritation.
Yuan warns that you must use a carrier oil such as jojoba oil or avocado oil to mix with the rosemary oil.
This is because essential oils, like Rosemary, can cause skin irritations if not diluted properly.
Lots of users commented on the video either rushing to buy the oil or singing the oil’s praises.
One user wrote: “Hair was falling out, I used rosemary oil in my shampoo!! Now I can’t live without it.”
Another responded: “Welp everywhere is about to sell out of rosemary oil.”
A third user said: “Been using rosemary oil for almost a year now and it helped me grow back a bald spot on my hairline.”
A further user wrote: “Me running to get some rosemary oil!”
