A person can put rosemary into their food or they can create a rosemary rinse that can be applied to the hair by leaving the herb in water for ten minutes. Chamomile is another excellent herb for stimulating hair and making it grow faster. Not only does the herb smell great, but it can heal damaged hair as well.
