Many of us may have this spot that doesn’t have much hair and we try to hide it with a bang or so. Mine, though, wasn’t fun! It all started like 12 years ago, assuming the tight hijab I used to wear caused it!
A couple years later, I decided to see a dermatologist rather than just living with it. I chose one of the best dermatologists back then, who recommended a pricy topical solution. I got it, read the how-to and it was interesting that while I had to use it twice a day until the bottle is empty, if I skip one time by mistake it would stop the whole thing effect and I would start all over again. Still, I committed to using it as described. Nothing happened, like really nothing! I lost hope, and decided to just live with it while keeping my hair healthy.
A few years ago I started using essential oils for my daughter. I started with Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils. I would research everything before buying/using. Thats when I came across an article about Rosemary Essential Oil and how it helps regrowing hair. I started researching this more. For me, it was a doable option; like, having the oil anyway is no harm, and trying it is just a natural thing with no side effect.
I used Coconut Oil (fractionated) as a carrier, with a few drops of Rosemary, and started applying this every day to that spot. In one week it started darkening, and the second week hair started growing!!!
Now I don’t see any bald spot!!!
Now why does this happen?
Rosemary essential oil works on a hormone called DHT that’s responsible for the hair loss.
>>Now check the recipe and what I did<<
You will need a dark glass bottle with dropper. If you have a used one already, make sure you wash it with warm/hot water and soap, and wipe it down with rubbing alcohol
Carrier oil (ex. Fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil, & almond oil)
For every 1 tbsp of the carrier oil, use 1 drop of a good quality rosemary oil
Cedar wood works well with this mix. One drop is enough in the bottle (optional)
Mix them all by shaking the bottle vigorously, and voila!
Now, every night take a couple drops, apply them to the bald spot, massage, and leave it in. It doesn’t feel oily so no need to rinse/wash. Just don’t over do it.
Another good way: add a few drops of rosemary essential oil to your shampoo and shake the bottle well. Shampoo and rinse your hair as usual and don’t worry, it won’t leave your hair greasy. It will rather help stimulate your hair follicles to grow healthier.
Try it and let me know if it worked for you. And remember, oils are safe as long as they’re used as recommended. For too much essential oil without a carrier causes allergic reactions.

Essential oil disclaimer: This recipe uses what are generally considered safe essential oils, but please keep in mind that while completely natural, all essential oils are powerful plant compounds that you and your family (including your pets) might have a reaction to. Never use essential oils undiluted or take essential oils internally (diluted or undiluted) without the guidance of a professional, and always read up about the possible side effects of each type of oil before you use it. Avoid the use of essential oils (diluted or undiluted) during the first trimester of pregnancy, on small babies, and on anyone with severe allergies to the plants the oils are derived from. And if you see any reactions in yourself, your family, or your pets, stop use of your essential oil products immediately and contact a medical professional.
When using essential oils, be careful and read the instructions on the label. Misusing essential oils could be harmful.
The topical application of essential oils may prove to be extra beneficial because the transdermal properties of the oil permeate your skin and enter your bloodstream faster. Your olfactory nerve receptors also sense the smell and send signals to your brain.
However, before topical application, you should patch test oils on your skin by rubbing a small drop on the inside of your wrist and letting it sit for 24 hours. If there is no reaction within this time, the essential oil may be safe for you to use. Patch test essential oils every time before using them on children. We do not recommend using essential oils on babies younger than one-year-old.
