Chemotherapy will in a lot of cases cause hair to fall out. This is because it targets and kills rapidly dividing cells and hair follicles are some of the fastest growing cells in the body. By stimulating blood circulation to the scalp with massage, hair can be encouraged to grow back. The hair itself is not alive - achieving re-growth of healthy hair is about improving the health of the scalp, on which the condition of the hair depends. This hair oil is designed to be used after the full chemotherapy treatment has finished and only on a scalp that is healthy. It can also be used for any hair loss symptoms including alopecia and male pattern baldness. Put several drops onto fingertips or a cotton pad and massage slowly into the scalp for several minutes. Leave on for 20 mins to half and hour then rinse off. Repeat 2 or 3 times per week.
Horsetail is one of the most important herbs for hair growth as it is full of silica which is essential for healthy skin and hair. Burdock works by promoting blood flow to the hair follicles by increasing circulation, nettle has a stimulating effect and has been used traditionally as a hair tonic for generations. Rosemary is an effective pain reliever, it stimulates circulation (and also brain activity and memory - so it is useful also for the condition 'chemo' brain). Ylang ylang pure essential oil has a tonic effect on the scalp and is suitable for both dry and oily skins, is cooling and calming to stress and anxiety and the fragrance is loved by both men and women.
