Since my face can become very oily face, I'm hoping this water can help.
Rose water can also be used in your hair, aids in moisturizing the scalp and hair follicles. Here I would test driving this on my hair, which is in transition into Locs (10 mnth and going strong), most times my hair becomes dry and needs a little moisture, water really don't do the trick unless I add some essential oil/s.

I got my roses from my neighbors yard (permission was granted) and simply followed the instruction via Youtube.
N.B. When researching you may find it been done Two ways, which ever method is good for you, try it. For me the concentrated method works better.
