Save your roses! Rose water is a great detangler.

One of my sorority sisters posted herself making rose water last year and I knew it was something I wanted to try. I had never heard of it or its benefits. After using it I will never throw roses in the trash without making rose water.

Rose water smells so sweet. It can be used a body fragrance. Other uses are as a facial toner, setting spray, makeup remover, eye treatment, linen freshener and many uses for hair. Since this is a hair blog we will set our focus here. For your hair It can be used as a detangler and as a rinse. It has anti-dandruff effects, adds shine and reduces frizz. It helps maintain the ph level of hair, triggers growth, rejuvenates hair follicles and treats smelly hair and scalp.

I used the rose water as a rinse and my hair felt very soft and detangling was so easy. I also used the rose water in my bath water. It has a soothing effect anti-anxiety and antidepressant properties.

I used the simmer method to make it.

What you will need:

  • Rose petals
  • Water
  • Pot with lit
  • Strainer
  • Container with lid

How to make it:

  • Remove the petals from the stems and wash them.
  • Put the rose petals into the pan
  • Add water, cover and bring to a boil
  • Reduce the temperature, let simmer and cool
  • Store in the refrigerator

To use it run it through your hair AFTER shampooing.

If I could do it all over again I would have better containers. I ended up having to search my cabinets to find bottles to put the rose water in. I do suggest filling up a spray bottle. I twisted my hair after the wash day I used the rose water and used the spray bottle through the week to add moisture to my hair. My hair was so curly and fluffy. I actually had someone come up to be and touch my hair and say “yass fluff” which for me was a compliment because I love big hair.

Let me know if you try this!
