Rosemary and Nettle Treatment for Your Hair
A lush and well cared for mane is a reflection of beauty and good health. Regardless of the cuts and hairstyles that are in fashion, healthy hair stands out and attracts everyone’s attention. So it’s no wonder that we always have new and improved hair treatments. Have you learned how to use rosemary and nettle for your hair yet?
Losing hair is heartbreaking and it negatively affects your personal self-esteem. So does having weak hair, or having it show a brittle, thin and dull appearance. Usually, emotional imbalances can be one of the causes of this loss: the greater the stress, the more dramatic and severe the ‘falls’ will be.
In addition, hair actually reflects the internal status of the organism. They’re indicators of the quality of your diet, as well as nutritional and hydration levels. Sometimes, the way a person treats their hair lets us know if they’re taking care of themselves.
Some unhealthy hair habits can create brittle hair that’s prone to fall out.
Scalp abuse is almost always caused by everyday actions. Aggressive and constant brushing, excess heat from dryers or uncontrolled exposure to some chemicals are habits that harm our hair.
Similarly, hormonal imbalances can cause weak and brittle hair. Therefore, you must consult a specialist so they can specify a treatment for each particular case.

A great solution: Rosemary and nettle for your hair
The secret of great health and beauty treatments can be found in nature. In addition, strengthening your hair with home remedies is a great option to reduce time and cost.
Rosemary is a medicinal plant that acts as a toner and activates the circulation. It’s excellent for regulating excess oil or sebum. It acts as a moisturizer that has a strong influence on hair strengthening.
For the prevention of alopecia and great hair volume loss, nettle is an excellent option. It acts as a natural repairer as it promotes hair growth in bald areas. It also has antiseptic, analgesic and circulatory system regulating qualities.
Combining rosemary and nettle controls the production of fat, hair regeneration, and other important aspects to strengthen it.
The combination of both herbs – rosemary and nettle – is effective for deep hair repair and hydration. However, when experiencing extreme hair loss, we always recommend asking a medical expert.
Among the home treatments that stand out for their effectiveness in strengthening your hair, we recommend the rosemary and nettle mask. To prepare it, you need one handful of rosemary and another of nettle, as well as water and alcohol.
The procedure consists of two stages. The first one is to place the rosemary sprouts in a glass container with alcohol for 40 days, and leave it to rest in a dark place. When this period is over, you can create an infusion with the nettle. To do this, cut it into pieces and boil them for 10 minutes.
Once these steps have been completed, it’s time to mix both elements in a container, adding each one in equal parts. Then directly apply it to the scalp, gently massaging with the fingertips so that the skin deeply absorbs it. Lastly, let it work for eight hours, preferably overnight.
