How often should you use rosemary water on your hair? Can you use it everyday?

home remedies for oily hair

  • You should use rosemary water two or three times a week according to your goals. I don’t recommend using rosemary water every day, and I’ll explain why later.
  • If you plan to use rosemary water to control hair loss and repair dryness, I recommend it twice a week. It could even be three depending on how your hair responds.
  • If you plan to use rosemary water to cover gray hair and stimulate hair growth, I recommend it once a week. Eventually, you could use it twice but checking your hair in the meantime.

If you’ve made it this far, it’s because you’ve heard about the benefits of rosemary water on your hair.


You’ve probably heard that you should use rosemary water every day.

Maybe your cousin Juanita, a hopeless lover of natural products, applies rosemary water to her hair almost every day to give it more shine.

Or, most likely, you’ve come across an Instagram post about the wonders of rosemary water on an influencer’s hair after she applied it every day.


Don’t pay much attention to the chit-chat.

  When it comes to applying any product to your hair, you need to be cautious.

Caution and common sense.

So, before applying rosemary water to your hair every day, think about it.

  • Does your hair need more moisture?
  • Do you notice that your hair is brittle or falling?
  • Would you like your hair to be shinier?


  Actually, the frequency of use of rosemary water will depend on the benefit you want to get.  


If you know what you want from rosemary water, you’ll be able to evaluate if it’s giving you results.

Based on that, you can adjust the frequency or stop using it altogether.

But beyond what you want to use it for, I want to clarify something.

Rosemary water shouldn’t be used on your hair every day

The same goes for other hair products.

  • A moisturizing mask is applied to the hair once a week.
  • Coconut oil is applied to the hair up to three times a week.


The frequency of use also depends on your hair type and hair health.

  • A moisturizing mask could be applied up to twice a week on severely damaged hair.
  • Coconut oil is applied once a week on oily hair.

Do you see the differences?


  Hair products should be used with a certain frequency according to what you want to achieve. Rosemary water is no exception.  


Rosemary water contains vitamins A, B2, B6, and C. They stimulate scalp circulation and promote growth.

It also contains minerals such as iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, and calcium.

So far so wonderful. It even makes you want to apply it every day.


But stop!

Advantages could turn into disadvantages.

Do you know what would happen if you used rosemary water every day?

  • The minerals and vitamins could   clog the pores of your scalp. 
  • If the pores get clogged,   you would feel scalp irritation.  
  • Also, if you use rosemary water every day,   its astringent properties will dry out your hair.  


Do you know what I tell my clients, especially those clients who love to try hair products every day?

I remind them of something I learned in hairdressing school: “overexposing hair to nourishing products could also damage it.”


It means that you should always   respect the frequency and exposure time of nourishing or moisturizing treatments on your hair.  


If you leave them on longer than indicated, you risk damaging your hair.

So, let’s see how often you can use rosemary water according to your hair’s needs.

The oil produced by the scalp is a natural moisturizer for the hair.


However, reasons such as hormonal issues or stress may cause the scalp to produce too much oil.

  When that happens, itching and irritation of the scalp starts and, eventually, dandruff appears. 


  If you apply rosemary water on your hair, its astringent, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties will help keep your scalp healthy.  


Of course, you can’t use rosemary water every day.

  You should use it twice a week for a month to be able to evaluate the results.  


  • Apply rosemary water to the scalp and massage gently for two to five minutes.
  • Leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse with shampoo.

Actually, in this case, you should use rosemary water every time you wash your hair.

  • Rinse your hair with lukewarm water and remove the remains of the rosemary water with your usual shampoo.
