I've been adding rosemary (and lavender) essential oil to my organic conditioner for a good long time now, probably 2-3 years. Mostly I heard it was good for general hair health, and I like how it smells. Hasn't had any effect on greying, from what I can tell- definitely the white hairs keep on coming!
My hair gets really greasy when I apply just oil as conditioner- is this a special treatment you are recommending at night or something? I have not tried the specific blend you are talking about but when I've used things like coconut oil, olive oil, blend of jojoba, apricot, almond oil and essential oils- even just a little bit- my hair is soooo greasy. Works ok as an overnight treatment though it hasn't been anything life-changing. My hair is in general good health, never dyed or permed or anything, so I guess there isn't much change to notice probably in that regard, just the greying. I guess I don't care enough about it though to try henna!
Just use Jojoba oil, its the best for oily scalps. Rosemary essential oil is not efficient! You need to maserate it on Jojoba oil. Also try to find a shampoo that cleanses enough your hair without making it break or dry. Conditioners can block you hair follicles and cause hair loss and thinning. So do not use any other oil that Jojoba, and do not use rosemary essential oil, you need the real stuff, use fresh rosemary to do the maserate. Good Luck!!!!! OH!! I was forgetting, what is your natural hair color?, Because rosemary will turn it as dark as it can get.
