How to apply – Hair Loss Natural Remedy
Rub the essential oil blend between your palms to increase its absorbality. Bend over, hang your head lower than your heart to increase blood flow to your scalp, and massage your scalp for 2 minutes. Do this 3-4 nights a week for a few months to allow several hair-growth cycles to take place.
Other essential oils for hair loss natural remedy
In India, a hair tonic made from rosemary and lemon grass in sesame oil has been used to fight hair loss.
Other essential oils such as bay, birch, chamomile, clary sage, cypress, juniper, lavandin, lemon, niaouli, patchouli, rose, and ylang-ylang can help relax the scalp and muscles, improve circulation and tone, and protect the skin and hair.
Add 80 drops of your favorite combination to 8 oz. of shampoo and conditioner. Always use non-toxic hair products (low-detergent, low phosphate, unscented, and alkalizing), minimize the use of chemicals like hair color, wear a swim cap in chlorinated pools, and exercise regularly to reduce chronic stress, an underlying cause of hair loss.
