Is long, thick and bouncy hair your current #hairgoal? If your hair is falling short (literally) in the length department, fret not. Don’t even worry about the fact that hair only grows at a rate of 1.25cm a month cos with these two ingredients in your beauty arsenal, you’ll be well on your way to restoring your falling locks while adding length, pronto! Bonus: you’ll instantly look younger in the process!

  • Rosemary oil

It’s more than a herb that goes well with baked potatoes and roast lamb. Packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties while functioning as a hair stimulant, this oil helps fight free radical damage that contributes to hair loss and slower hair growth. It also boosts blood circulation at the scalp to allow more blood flow at the hair roots, which accelerates growth.


  • Castor oil

This oil is an effective beauty treatment as it has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties that are rich in vitamin E, minerals, proteins and Omega 6. Castor oil helps prevent hair loss while fighting folliculitis (inflammation of the hair follicles) and dandruff. It balances out the scalp’s natural oils and repairs damage caused by harsh chemical processes. The antioxidants it contains strengthen the keratin in hair, making your strands stronger, smoother and less frizzy.


Winning combo

Wonder what the magical concoction is? Here’s the (really simple) recipe:

Fill a dropper bottle with:

  • 2 tablespoons castor oil
  • 15 drops rosemary oil


In one week, you’ll notice longer, lusher hair. Beauty guru, Alexandra Beth, shows us how it’s done (and her results).
