Rosemary and Vinegar Rinse Concentrate for Hair Re-Growth


Vinegar and Rosemary Rinse Concentrate



Do you remember ‘Popeye the Sailor Man’ – the famous cartoon character? And his secret superfood – spinach?

Whenever Popeye’s on the verge of a fight, he simply squeezes open a can of spinach, pours the green down his throat and instantly grows enormous biceps, he then uses his new-found strength to pummel his arch-enemy Bluto.

If only it was that quick and easy to grow muscles. We know that it takes hours and hours of practice to build muscles.

Same stands true for regrowing lost hair.

It can take months, or maybe even years to regrow lost hair. But what if there’s a concentrate, like popeye’s spinach, that you pour on your hair and it kick-starts the hair growth process.

Of course, it won’t grow hair in seconds, let’s be realistic here. But this concentrate can quicken the recovery of hair follicles, and you can see hair growth sprouting in days. I am excited to tell you that I am using it with great success. Do you want to know more about this potent natural remedy?

It’s called Rosemary and Vinegar Rinse Concentrate for Hair Regrowth.

What’s So Good About Rosemary and Vinegar?

Our hair thrives and flourishes when its pH is slightly acidic (around 5). And as you know, vinegar is acidic. So vinegar does a wonderful job of rebalancing hair pH if it’s gone off. This characteristic help penetration of nutrients within the hair follicles, strengthening it and promoting hair re-growth.

Vinegar is also great at protecting the scalp from microbes and bacteria and keeps it clean and flake-free. Besides, vinegar unclogs and clarifies the hair follicles. So it allows the new hair to grow without any obstruction.

But vinegar alone will not suffice we need some herbal power too.

And what better than the antioxidant-rich rosemary. Rosemary helps get rid of hair damaging free radicals – that are responsible for thinning as well as greying. Moreover, rosemary boosts scalp circulation and encourages strong, healthy hair growth.

Another herb that we will be putting in the potion is chamomile. I like chamomile because of its scalp soothing nature and also because it adds softness and gloss to hair.

So yes, you need vinegar and two herbs to make the hair regrowth concentrate. Now that you know the benefits of all the three ingredients, let’s get making.

How to Make Rosemary and Vinegar Rinse Concentrate

Vinegar and Rosemary Concentrate Making


To make the concentrate you may use plain white vinegar, but I like to use apple cider vinegar for this recipe. Apple cider vinegar (with mother) has live enzymes and beneficial acids that work fantastic for hair.

Also, you can add, subtract herbs to your liking. But rosemary and chamomile is a winner for me. The duo combination with vinegar not only reduces hair fall and promotes growth, but it also adds lovely shine and texture to hair.

Measure out:

Make it:

If you are thinking making the concentrate would be an arduous task, well, it’s not.

All you need to do is collect all the ingredients, including the glass bottle or jar. And put everything together, close the lid and shake well. That’s it.

Some instructions on the ingredients:

  1. Apple cider vinegar: use raw, unfiltered vinegar with ”mother” or ”live enzymes” in it.
  2. Rosemary: I brought fresh rosemary and let it dry on the kitchen counter for 5 to 6 days and put that. But you can use dried rosemary as well.
  3. Chamomile: you can get dried chamomile flowers.

Take a glass jar or bottle put rosemary, chamomile and vinegar and stir it. Close the lid and you are done making.

But since it’s a concentrate, it needs brewing time. So keep it in a cool, dark place for 3 weeks. And give it a shake every couple of days, so the vinegar mixes with the herbs.

After 3 weeks, the vinegar and rosemary rinse concentrate will be ready. Strain and store in a glass bottle in a cool, dry place. Label the bottle, because if you are a DIY person, it’s so easy to forget what’s in what and you may end up using the wrong thing. Yikes!

How to Use Rosemary and Vinegar Rinse Concentrate

Shake the concentrate before use. Yup, there’s a bit of shaking when making and using and it’s good for your arm muscles. But don’t knock-out your rival, make them envious with your thick, beautiful hair.

Here’s how to do??

Add 1-2 tablespoons in a mug/squeeze bottle. Add 2 cups warm water and mix well. Wet your hair, and pour through wet hair. Massage into your hair and scalp and let it sit for 5 minutes or so and rinse out with water.

Since this is also conditioning and hair softening, you can use it after shampooing in place of your regular conditioner.

How often to use: once or twice a week

Buying the Ingredients:

  1. Apple cider vinegar: You can get raw, unfiltered vinegar ‘with mother’ in it at health food stores, supermarkets or buy online.
  2. Rosemary: You can get dried rosemary easily in supermarkets. And if not, Amazon is a great place to buy rosemary. Or use fresh rosemary and dry it yourself as I did.
  3. Chamomile: You can buy chamomile flowers online or use chamomile tea bags, but make sure it’s just chamomile and nothing else.
  4. Glass jar: Buy here

Let me know if you have any questions and how the vinegar and rosemary rinse concentrate works for you.

Enjoy Creating! Stay happy and healthy!

Until next time…

Jake Cartledge says

Hi, I’m a 17 year old boy suffering with hair loss and this is causing depression. I feel my scalp needs cleansing and I am wondering if I should use this during or after my gym sessions I do every other day. Any help/instructions of what and when to use would be much appreciated

    Minaz says

    Hi Jake, you can use it after the gym session, leave on for 2-3 minutes then wash it out.

Rekha says

Hi, if I use chamomile tea bags, how many do I use? Do I add it together into the jar without steeping? Thanks

    Minaz says

    You can empty the content of chamomile tea bag, measure and use.

Jane says

Made the rosemary and apple cider vinegar which is great but wonder if I can leave it in Instead of rinsing out after five minutes? Thanks for all the wonderful ideas.

    Minaz says

    I prefer rinsing out, but you can leave it in. See what your hair likes better. My hair gets a little dry if I leave it in.

Linda says

I have been using the onion juice for hair loss seems to be working would it be ok to also use the “Rosemary & Vinegar Rinse”? I already use the vinegar as my conditioner but is there such a thing as overkill? Also is this a lifetime job once the hair does grow back in?

Milu says

Hi Minaz,
How long can you use this concentrate after you make it? Weeks or Months?

    Minaz says

    Hi Milu, it will stay good for months.

Gail says

I loved your rinse, but can’t figure out how to measure grams or ounces. Would you please tell me how these break down to teasp?

Thanks. I can’t wait to try it.

    Minaz says

    I was telling a reader on my facebook page that you can’t simply convert grams to teaspoons. Because if what you are weighing something light like dried leaves and flowers, it would not measure the same as oil or honey. So 10 grams of rosemary without/with stalks can measure between 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup. My suggestion is to get a weighing machine.

G.R. Diwe says

Hey! I wanted to know if you can use this rinse in addition to the regular herbal hair shampoo (shikekai reetha) or this is to be used as an only rinse. Thank you for all your efforts!!

    Minaz says

    I don’t think you need an additional rinse with ree-shi shampoo. But it’s never black and white, so give it a try and do share how it goes for you.

lorraine cartledge says

Can you use a few drops of essential oil instead of fresh or dried rosemary?

    Minaz says

    You can use essential oil, it will be beneficial. But since the properties of oil and whole herb are different, it won’t be the same.

Karen says

Am going to try rosemary and vinegar but didn’t have camomile so put in a bit of dried nettle, is that ok? Love your site so helpful for those of us struggling with our hair! Thank you xx

    Minaz says

    Yes please do.
    I will also add any one of the conditioning herbs: lavender, sage or basil

Kiyara says

Mix, Shake, Done…. wohoooo!

Easy as it can be, when I started my natural hair care journey I was intimidated by all the things I thought I will have to do.

Then I found hairbuddha simple, scientific, tried and tested natural hair care and I thought to myself why did I wait so long the results are very good ….. well better late than never.

Thanks for sharing
