Natural Hair Serum Recipe with Rosemary and Jojoba

I used to spend a small fortune on a yummy-smelling hair oil that I bought from my stylist. I ran just a small dab of it through my wet hair before drying, and it made my hair silky and smooth. But after a few months of using it my hair was dryer than ever and it seemed like it wouldn’t absorb the oil or even water any longer. A peek at the ingredients in the hair “oil” alerted me to why. I was coating my hair in silicone. This made my hair shiny and smooth at first, but soon each hair was so coated in silicone that it would no longer absorb water. Clearly it was time to make my own hair serum.

Rosemary Jojoba Hair Serum

This hair serum is made with the jojoba oil and argan oil with the addition of rosehip seed oil and essential oils.

  • Jojoba oil is the closest to our skins own sebum and so it is tolerated well by most people and a good carrier oil for hair and scalp treatments.
  • Argan oil is full of vitamins and nutrients that help t make hair softer, shinier, more manageable and less frizzy.
  • Rosehip seed oil is rich with antioxidants that help with the hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.

Herbs like rosemary, lavender and helichrysum are often used in hair care products for their antibacterial and antifungal properties that stimulate the scalp and repair the strands.

  • Rosemary is known as the herb for hair. It’s a circulatory stimulant and can often be used to promote hair growth and follicle health. It’s antibacterial and antifungal which can help with conditions that make the scalp itchy. And it stimulates shine, especially in dark hair.
  • Lavender also has antibacterial and anti fungal properties, but it is also very calming and can reduce inflammation.
  • Helichrysum helps to stimulate hair growth, aids in reducing inflammation, and supports the skin and hair.

  1. I found your dry shampoo article interesting. Wish I’d known of it years ago, when my hair was thick and oily.

    However, now I’m 74. My hair is thinner and much less oily than it used to be. I began using the no-poo method several years ago and it seems to work for the most part; it’s still pretty shiny. However, sometimes I sweat at night and often my hair gets sticky with salt. I can just rinse it, usually ending with a squirt of white vinegar. But it isn’t really dirty (if it has gotten dirty, I just use a dab of shampoo on the roots and a squirt of no-rinse conditioner at the end). My question: Would your dry shampoo work to remove dried salt? Or is there any other method you can think of? Rinsing isn’t a big deal, but sometimes it’s cold and I’d rather not have to wait for my hair to dry.
