Can Rosemary oil be used with extensions?
While rosemary oil can provide numerous benefits for natural hair, it is essential to exercise caution when using it with hair extensions. The primary concern is the potential for the oil to loosen the bonds or adhesive used to attach the extensions.
If the extensions are bonded with glue or tape, the oil may weaken the adhesive, causing the extensions to come loose.
However, if you have clip-in hair extensions or other temporary methods that do not involve adhesive, you can safely use rosemary oil on your natural hair and scalp. Just remember to avoid applying the oil directly to the bonds or attachment points of the extensions.
Tips for using Rosemary Oil In-between Treatments
Choose a pre-diluted oil
Rosemary oil is highly concentrated and can be too strong for direct application. The best brand to go for is Nature Spells, as it’s already diluted therefore is the safest to use!
Massage the oil mixture into your scalp using gentle circular motions to promote blood circulation and absorption of the oil.
Rosemary oil is potent, so a little goes a long way. Start with a small amount and adjust as needed.
Perform a patch test
Before applying rosemary oil to your scalp, perform a patch test on a small area of skin to check for any allergic reactions or sensitivity.
Rosemary oil can be a beneficial addition to your hair care routine, but it is important to be cautious when using it with hair extensions.
If you have temporary extensions that do not involve adhesive, you can safely use rosemary oil on your natural hair and scalp.
However, if your extensions are bonded with glue or tape, it is best to avoid applying the oil directly to the attachment points.
With proper care and attention, you can enjoy the potential benefits of rosemary oil while maintaining the integrity of your hair extensions.
