How to Treat Alopecia
Alopecia is a condition where the cycle of hair production is interrupted. This condition causes hair loss that is typically seen on the scalp, however, it can also be seen anywhere else on the body as well. You will typically see hair receding at the hairline or through missing patches around your scalp. If you didn’t know, there are a few different types of alopecia. Androgenetic alopecia is one of the most common types that affect millions of people around the world. Unfortunately, there is no cure for alopecia, however, most variations can be managed through different types of avenues. Continue reading for our solution on treating alopecia.
THE SCALP TREATMENT
It’s said that hair loss occurs due to a result of starved blood flow to the hair follicles. Therefore, using stimulative oils prove to be extremely beneficial in encouraging new hair growth. Our Scalp Treatment contains a boatload of scalp-loving and growth-promoting properties that would be beneficial for anyone with alopecia. It contains a whole bunch of other growth-promoting ingredients so you don’t have to make your own at-home concoction. The hard work here is done for you! Three of the top growth-promoting oils in the Scalp Treatment include:
- Rosemary Oil – This oil actually used for treating alopecia. This incredible oil works to stimulate new hair growth and prevent further hair fall. Rosemary Oil is typically compared to Rogaine (a medication used to treat hair loss) as they both produced a significant amount of hair growth in a six-month period. In this study, Rosemary Oil was shown to cause less itching, a common side effect from using Rogaine. Rosemary Oil can be used on its own, however, we suggest mixing it with a carrier oil as it can be quite overpowering on the scalp alone.
- Peppermint Oil – This is another stimulative oil that improves circulation and blood flow directly to the scalp. With this oil, you can actually feel it working through the refreshing and tingling sensation it provides. You can thank menthol for that tingly fresh feeling. Menthol is the main component in peppermint oil, which has been shown to increase blood flow to the area where it is applied.
- Castor Oil – An oil almost everybody knows about! This is another growth-promoting oil that is high in Vitamin E, Omega 6 & 9, and ricinoleic acid. Ricinoleic acid helps balance the scalp’s pH level which provides the perfect conditions for hair growth. It’s also high in antioxidants that support keratin (hair protein) and increase the overall thickness of the hair.
