The Benefits of Rose Water in Hair Regrowth Stimulation
Submitted by Rebecca Edwards on March 21, 2012 –
With the ancient civilizations, rose flowers have been highly treasured for their medicinal and nutritional properties. In fact, Phoenicians, Ancient Romans, and Greeks placed as much importance on large rose gardens as they did on fruit orchards.
In the 8th and 9th centuries, rose water was recognized as an essential commercial item by the Byzantine and the Empire of China. This floral water was used as perfume for its fragrant aroma, a hair regrowth tonic, and an excellent antiseptic.
What Is Rose Water?
Rose water is a by-product of rose oil through distillation of pure fresh rose petals which was first developed in Persia and Bulgaria. Rose water is very rich in flavonoids and vitamins A, C, D, E, and B3. It lowers the risks of heart diseases and bladder infections, eases eye irritation, and relieves digestive problems and nervous tension.
Regular application of rose water helps take good care of the scalp and hair. It reduces scalp inflammation, increases blood supply in the hair follicles, and promotes hair regrowth.
Hair Care Benefits of Rose Water
1. Moisturizes and Conditions the Hair Follicles
Adding rose water into your regular shampoo can help moisturize and condition the hair. Using rose water will also make your hair shinier, softer, and healthier. It has been found that rose water helps reduce or lessen dandruff caused by fungal infections.
The porosity of the hair will also stabilize with the application of rose water. The pH balance of rose water is closer to that of the hair in its optimal state; hence, it works to repair the hair’s porosity. This allows the hair to retain the proper amount of moisture in, and it also smoothens the cuticle.
2. Promotes Hair Growth
Rose water promotes healthier hair regrowth. Using rose water as the last rinse after shampooing your hair can help prevent hair loss and improve blood circulation in the scalp.
Proper circulation delivers blood and nutrient supply to the hair roots, thereby nourishing and strengthening the hair follicles, promoting healthier hair. In addition, rose water helps treat inflammation on the scalp as it has therapeutic properties.
3. Boosts Hair Strength and Quality
Rose water helps improve the quality of the hair. Mixing equal amounts of rose water and glycerin and then applying this mixture on to the scalp helps provide nourishment, moisture, and strength to the hair follicles.
