My hair thinned out & I nearly had bald patches, I fixed it with 2 oils & a wand (2024)

EVERY shower resulted in handfuls of hair loss for one woman before she tried a DIY remedy.

The 27-year-old said she had been lucky to have thick tresses before stress and a lack of proper haircare triggered her extreme shedding.


She revealed how she restored her locks in a post on Reddit’s Haircare forum.

She shared a photo of her thinning tresses in October, a snap of how much hair was falling out each time it was washed, and a recent photo showing the regrowth.

“I always had pretty thick hair and was generally quite lucky with it,” she said.

“This luck ran out last year when I realized that my hair had become so thin. I had a fraction of the hair I used to have.

“Additionally, I was losing a crazy amount of hair in the shower. Like a full thick palm every time I washed it.

“My hair was shedding like mad outside of washes too. My hair was EVERYWHERE, all over my house & clothes.

“I also noticed that my hairline at both sides was seriously receding and that the rest of my hair was just covering up these almost-bald patches.

“Safe to say I was panicking.”

The woman said she saw TikTok users raving about how rosemary oil had helped their hair loss.

She began to mix a few drops of rosemary oil with castor oil and applied it to her hairline using a mascara wand.

She would leave the mixture on her hair for at least half a day before washing it to promote growth and thickness.

“I started around December but only consistently in Feb,” she said.

“The results from this short time have been crazy, to the point where I forgot how bad it was in the first place.

“I hardly lose any hair in the shower now.

“My hairline is growing, the bald patch baby hairs are now THICK and my hair generally is so much thicker!!

“People have commented on this too. I’m honestly shook.”

A stream of responses to the post thanked the woman for sharing her results and shared their experiences using rosemary oil for hair growth.

“I’ve been doing this forever for my thinning hair and it works!!” one person said.

“I also do castor oil in with my rosemary and it’s made SUCH a difference!! Also, my hair has never been this thick EVER.”

“This is amazing, so happy for you!” another commented.

“Thanks for sharing!” a third added.

“I’ve had progress with a rosemary oil spray (witch hazel, tea tree oil, lavender, and rosemary), spray on a morning close to the roots, and wash that night.

“I have tons of baby hairs now! I’ve read so much good about castor oil, I might introduce it too! Way to go! These things are hard work.”

A duo of natural rosemary oil and Jamaican black castor oil is priced at $20 at Nature Spell.

Customers have given it a 4-star rating out of 5.

One shopper said their hair has become visibly “thicker, shiny, and so soft,” while another gushed about how it helped to promote growth.

A pack of disposable mascara wands costs $2.11 at Walmart.

Science and personal testimonials both “strongly suggest” that rosemary essential oil can be used for hair growth, according to Healthline.

However, there are no scientific studies that back up the use of castor oil for longer locks.
