This past week, I became the 1st person on the Internet to test out whether or not using rosemary oil will actually help regrow and/or retain your hair if you are experiencing hair loss; from an unbiased perspective, as I have zero interest in selling essential oils.
On a daily basis from December 25th, 2016 until June 25th, 2017, I faithfully applied rosemary oil onto my scalp. I also included other oils as well, along with pumpkin seed oil in pill format.
1 ounce almond oil (carrier oil)
18 drops rosemary oil
3 drops rose hip seed oil
3 drops sage oil
3 drops lavender oil
-Plus one pumpkin seed capsule daily (but 2 daily for the first month)
The results? Inconclusive.
6 Months Before…
New hair did not grow in. However, there is no obvious evidence that my hair continued to thin either. So I can’t prove it didn’t maintain and keep the hair I still have.
But obviously, no… it did not serve as some magical cure for hair loss that people on the Internet want it to be.
6 Months After…
Believe it or not, I’m now technically more popular as a YouTuber than I am as a daddy blogger. For the past year and a half, I have been making about 3 videos a day about hair loss on my YouTube channel.
My original intention was to create popular videos for children to watch with their parents, like my Jack-Man series…
As well as my Uncle Nick series…
But the free market decided otherwise. What people actually chose to spend their time watching were videos where I casually talk about hair loss.
I hit the 1,000 subscriber mark back in February, and now I’m over 1600. What that means is this: I make supplemental income now, as a YouTube. It’s currently over $50 a month, as YouTubers get a cut of the revenue from the commercials that play right before my videos.
And that number of subscribers is growing daily.
So while you know me as the daddy blogger, there are over 1600 YouTube subscribers who know me as an accidental expert on hair loss. Pretty weird, huh?
But no, using rosemary oil didn’t seem to help my hair loss. I provided pictures though, so you can be the judge.
