The VERY surprising ‘miracle’ staple leaving limp, dry hair impossibly glossy – and you’ve probably never heard of it

  • Rosemary oil has been thrust into the spotlight on TikTok as a beauty staple
  • The oil is said to help people achieve impossibly healthy and shiny hair
  • Beauty concierge, Nicole Vitulli, says she was ‘ahead of the curve’ used for years

Women have plunged the humble rosemary oil into the spotlight on TikTok, where it has been labelled a ‘miracle growth serum’ for tired hair.

And unlike many online beauty hacks, this one actually has the thumbs up from experts who agree it will help make your locks ‘silkier and thicker than ever’.

While most people who have stumbled across the trend have opted to give it a go Nicole Vitulli has been using it for years.

 

Rosemary oil is the latest TikTok craze – but some people including Nicole Vitulli have been using it for years

The beauty concierge has been using a shampoo infused with the oil for five years and love the idea of being ‘ahead of the curve’.

‘When rosemary oil is the new thing for hair growth and health but you have been using shampoo infused with it for years,’ she wrote on an Instagram reel.

In the video the 31-year-old woman from The Bronx, NY, flicked her hair around to show off its healthy shine.

And her followers were impressed – saying her locks ‘look like a hair advertisement’.

‘We will always be a step ahead of the game when it comes to the most innovative ingredients and science. Catch us if you can,’ she said.

Speaking to FEMAIL Nicole said while she doesn’t use rosemary oil on its own, as the TikTok trend prescribes it is the main ingredient in her shampoo.

‘I use the Monat intense repair shampoo. So the two other main ingredients are rejuviniqe oil and capixyl. The three ingredients work really well together for promoting growth and healthy hair.

‘The rosemary has anti inflammatory and can improve circulation which can help with growth,’ she said.

The ‘rosemary trick’ can work quickly but some people might need to use it for some time before seeing a huge change.

‘If you are really looking to change you hair it will take a little time, patience and consistency,’ she said, sharing before and after pictures showing the improvement in her own hair.

Most of the TikTok hacks involve mixing rosemary oil with a carrier oil, like argon oil and applying directly to you scalp.

Tips include massaging the oil into your scalp, putting it on at least 20 minutes before taking a shower and even leaving it in overnight.

The rosemary oil ‘targets’ the hair follicle rather than the strand which means it is suitable for all hair types, including coloured hair. 

And while it is a new hack on TikTok, the use of rosemary oil on hair has been tried and tested over 100s of years.
