Maintaining a healthy scalp and haircare routine is as important as following a good skincare routine when it comes to achieving a healthy mane. Hair fall and dandruff are two of the most common hair problems. I wonder if there is anyone who hasn’t suffered from them at least once in their lifetime. And I’m no different. With tons of hair products in the market targeting those concerns starting from shampoos claiming to reduce hair fall to hair growth serums that are infused with new age activating ingredients like Redensyl to bond repairing products that repair the damaged hair shaft, it always left me confused and overwhelmed. Despite this, my safest choice has always been hair oils. Oiling has been a part of my daily routine since I was a kid. So I always go for good quality hair oils. This newly launched Rosemary Oil from Mamaearth caught my eye so I thought why not give it a try – especially since Rosemary Oils have been quite popular to promote hair growth.

Mamaearth Rosemary Oil Review
The product build is similar to most hair oils – coming in a sleek plastic bottle with a flip cap that opens to a small hole dispenser. We get a comb applicator separately in the outer box – which we can attach it by unscrewing the flip cap. This comb applicator helps to apply the oil onto the roots directly to promote faster hair growth.
The packaging is quite sturdy and wouldn’t open on its own, but it’s still best not to travel with it as it contains oil. And if you plan to use the comb applicator, the oils do leak on the outside of the bottle.
What I like the most about the packaging is its appealing lavender-themed branding for this Rosemary Range. It’s definitely aesthetically pleasing to at look it when it rests on my vanity shelf.
Color & Texture:
It’s a clear oil – with no color or other residues inside it. The texture is light and medium to thin. It’s not thick or heavy at all.
It has a mild pleasant fragrance with notes of Rosemary. I have an aversion to strongly scented headache-inducing hair oils – like the Indulekha Bringha Oil and I’m glad this isn’t like that. This oil has a very soothing scent and it’s barely noticeable once the oil is applied on the hair.
I’ve been trying out this hair oil for about two months now. And I’ll be sharing my experience based on that.
About my hair:
I have fine straight hair that is a few inches below my shoulder. I have a hair fall and recurrent dandruff problem that needs to be taken care of regularly. My routine is shampooing once a week with regular shampoo and two weeks once with a Ketoconazole Shampoo for Dandruff. I oil my hair heavily before hair wash day and post washing I use a few drops of Argan Oil on damp hair. I don’t use a conditioner as most of them weigh down my hair. If I have a lot of time, I like to whip up simple hair masks using kitchen ingredients. My favorite is a simple Fenugreek Seeds Hair Mask.
Application and Usage:
I found using the comb applicator to be the easiest and fastest way. It helps to disperse the oil evenly onto the roots, along with promoting blood circulation to induce hair growth. I like that the oil is light – it spreads easily and is not that sticky compared to other oils like coconut oil and castor oils. It’s also fairly easy to wash off the oil with a shampoo. I don’t need to shampoo twice. The oil definitely left my hair moisturized and nourished.
In two months of usage, it did help in reducing my hair fall to a certain extent. Not a major difference, but still noticeable. I also noticed some positive results on my dandruff – thanks to the presence of Methi Dana(Fenugreek). I’m yet to see its effects on new hair growth. I believe it might help with consistent usage. However, I do think that a Rosemary Essential Oil mixed with Coconut Oil would give better results when it comes to stimulating new hair growth.
Soulflower Rosemary Lavender Hair Oil is a popular choice among consumers. It’s made with Cold Pressed Oils, so if you want something that is available in its pure natural form, this is great. And it’s also cheaper and comes in more quantity.
