Five Reasons Why Rose Water Benefits Curly Hair

Five Reasons Why Rose Water Benefits Curly Hair



It's easy to forget to care for your scalp when constantly worrying about protecting your curls. But if you care for your scalp regularly, keeping your curls healthy and lustrous will be easier. Various elements can cause damage to your scalp, such as prolonged exposure to UV rays, stress, pollution, or the use of products that include harmful ingredients. Luckily, your scalp can be in a healthier state due to rose water's anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, allowing it to soothe and protect itself, resulting in curlier hair. Now, let's look at five ways in which rose water can improve the health and condition of your natural curls.

1. Reduces Frizz And Flyaways

As curly hair is naturally drier than straight hair, it needs additional hydration on a more consistent basis to reduce frizz. More water molecules are present in the atmosphere when the air is humid. This occurrence can increase the number of hydrogen bonds forming between keratin proteins on a strand of your hair, causing your curls to become frizzier. When used at least once a week, rose water can effectively tame frizz and add shine to your hair.

To moisturise your curls after your wash day, use a small amount of Sofnfree’s Leave-In Conditioner With Manuka Honey & Avocado Oil to reduce dryness, maintain your curl definition, and keep as much moisture as possible within your natural hair. Then, following your wash day routine, use Sofnfree’s Curl Elongating Gel With Flaxseed Oil & Rosewater to keep your curls defined and moisturised for longer. 


2. Controls Excess Oil On Your Scalp

The natural oils (sebum) of your scalp, debris, dead skin cells, and sweat can accumulate to cause scalp build-up. If your scalp remains in this condition for an extended amount of time, it can lead you to experience various scalp issues, including dandruff, an itchy scalp, and even hair loss. If you notice that your scalp produces excessive oil, you could use rose water to maintain the natural pH levels. In addition, rose water helps prevent dandruff from developing on the scalp because it inhibits the creation of excess oil.

Before your wash day, rose water can be massaged into the scalp lightly and gently using a cotton ball or swab to reduce dandruff or itching. Follow with a gentle shampoo and conditioner from Sofnfree, which can cleanse and seal moisture into your scalp and curls. Both products contain manuka honey, so your curly hair will also benefit from more shine, volume, and softness. You can also retain the moisture from this cleansing and conditioning process by using a microfibre towel to dry your curls, which can gently remove excess water.

3. Lifts Your Mood

One of the most important factors that causes hair loss is stress. It has been demonstrated that rose oil in rose water can alleviate nervous tension and anxiety. When you incorporate rose water hair products into your natural hair regimen, you can use the rose water itself to massage your scalp once or twice a week before you wash your hair, which can promote the healthy growth of your hair and allow you to feel relaxed.


4. Contains Natural Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Rose water has been shown to have anti-inflammatory vitamins A, B3, C, and E. These anti-inflammatory effects can help with scalp conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The anti-inflammatory characteristics of rose water help relieve the pain and itching associated with these problems while restoring your scalp to a healthy state.

5. Softens And Hydrates Your Curly Hair

Rose water is an easy solution that can nourish and hydrate hair that needs it.  As one of its ingredients is distilled water, it can give your curly hair an additional moisture boost, particularly during the cooler months.  For instance, consider a protective style like twist-outs to protect your hair, especially your ends, from the harsher elements of the colder weather. Before putting your curly hair into this style, use Sofnfrees Curling Mousse With Flaxseed Oil & Rosewater, which can keep your curls soft and moisturised while in style for several weeks.   

Rose water can be an effective remedy for various conditions associated with curly hair, including concerns with the scalp, frizz, and hair growth. Adding it to your haircare routine is simple, as you can use it as a pre-poo, as part of a gel to enhance curl definition, or as a mousse that maintains your protective style.
