Today, at Boldsky, we have brought together a list of wonderful ways to use rose water for hair care. Try these natural ways to make your hair beautiful and strong. Take a peek at these ways here.

Note: It is important to do a scalp test before applying any natural ingredient to your tresses, to ensure that the ingredients suit your hair type.


Rose Water With Aloe Vera Gel

Merge rose water and aloe vera gel together to combat dry and frizzy hair. Slather this mix all over your scalp and towards the ends. Then, cover your head with a shower cap for about an hour. Try applying this mix once a week for long-term results.


Rose Water With Honey

Prepare a mix of rose water and honey for conditioning your tresses from inside out. The quantities of both the ingredients will depend on the length of your hair. Keep the mix on for 40 minutes before rinsing it off with water.


Rose Water With Vitamin E Oil

Extract the oil of 2-3 vitamin E capsules and mix it with 4-5 drops of rose water. Then, gently massage this mix onto your scalp. It keeps the scalp hydrated and prevents itchiness of the scalp or dandruff. Try applying it once a week for a proper hair care routine.


Rose Water With Green Tea

The combination of rose water and green tea is used as a rinse. After washing your hair with a mild shampoo, rinse your hair with this homemade rinse to promote hair growth and strengthen hair follicles.


Rose Water With Salt

Take 1 tablespoon of salt and mix it with 4-5 drops of rose water. Then, apply this mix to your scalp to add volume to your otherwise thin tresses. Try applying this homemade mix twice a week if you are experiencing hair thinning.


Rose Water With Glycerin

Take 1 teaspoon of glycerin and mix it with 4-5 drops of rose water. Then, use this mix to rinse your hair with it. This mix can make your hair turn soft and add shine to it.


Directly Apply Rose Water To Your Tresses

The simplest way to use rose water for hair care is by soaking a cotton pad in it and applying it all over your scalp. It acts as a natural moisturiser and keeps your hair nourished from well under the surface.


Rose Water With Fuller’s Earth

Mix 2 tablespoons of Fuller's earth with 5 drops of rose water and gently apply it to your scalp. It improves blood circulation in your scalp and prevents hair breakage.


Rose Water With Castor Oil

Mix 1 teaspoon of castor oil with 4 drops of rose water and slather it onto your scalp. Leave it on for at least an hour for the ingredients to work their magic. Try repeating this once a week for long and strong hair.
