Let's Discuss Rosewater
Many people in the natural community have been wondering about Rosewater and its benefit on the skin and hair. Rosewater is not only aromatic, but healing, soothing and all natural. Rosewater has a plethora of benefits for the scalp, locs and body and you can actually brew it yourself!
A natural conditioner
Rosewater is great for those who are dealing with harsh water that is drying out their locs. The rosewater will add moisture to the locs while adding more luster and softness to the overall hair shaft. Vitamin A, C, D, E, and B3 are all present in rose water, which naturally nourish the hair and helps add that sheen.
Restores the Scalp
Since rosewater is all natural and gentle on the skin and scalp it can be applied directly to the scalp without causing any damage or irritation. The rose water can actually be used to relieve dry scalp and dandruff while boosting the hair at the roots. Since rosewater is antibacterial it will kill any fungus growing on the scalp and helps heal skin conditions.
Promotes Hair Growth
All you have to do is buy roses, wash the petals and boil in distilled water for a good 20 minutes. When the water has cooled, strain the rose water into a spray bottle. The flavonoids, tannins and antioxidants found in rose water will strengthen the hair cells, follicles and scalp, prevent hair loss and promote new hair growth! So, what are the side effects? Just rose scented hair, sure smells like summer.
