If we could claim to cure baldness, we would be extremely wealthy, but since we can't, we aren't, yet some of these home-made recipes can be of great help, and a very cheap alternative to the very expensive clinically tested pharmaceutical product on the market, or the expensive products promising overnight miracles.

Alopecia, the nice scientific sounding name for hair loss and baldness happens for a variety of reasons, and since some of these reasons, like your genetic programming, cannot be helped by any external lotions or creams, nor any supplements, it would be a waste of time and money to spend a fortune on rubbing a variety of compounds into your scalp, or to fill your body with equally expensive supplements.
Tricologists, people studying tricology - the science of hair growth - have used various ingredients to help hair growth along, but some have also taken note of the effect that certain essential oils can have on regenerating hair follicles to a certain extent.
Age also plays its part in the balding arena and so do fevers, high stress levels, illness, thyroid problems etc.
In some cases, scalp stimulation and supplements can help, and although we do not market supplements, we do offer you some very affordable scalp stimulation lotions that you can make yourself at home.
The one clinically tested lotion that stops hair loss, developed from a drug used for high blood pressure is effective, but it does have side effects, is very expensive and the results are not always all that spectacular.
Since everybody has their own favorite shampoo, we do not have a special shampoo recipe, but do suggest that you add the following essential oils to your regular shampoo. It is however suggested that you use a mild natural shampoo.
The dilution that you should use is as follows, and please do not add more essential oil than specified, as it may cause irritation.
You can use this shampoo as your regular shampoo.
This stimulating lotion can be massaged into the scalp in the morning, after washing and partly drying the hair. Massage with care so as not to stretch or break the hair while massaging.
This mixture should be kept in the fridge and will separate when standing, necessitating you to give it a good shake every morning before applying about 2 teaspoons of the mixture.
For a once-a-week conditioning treatment, you can apply the following oil blend and leave on for at least 30 minutes before washing it off. When washing it off, apply some shampoo to the hair before you wet it, to help remove the oil easily.
This oil blend must be gently (repeat gently) rubbed onto the scalp once a day at night before going to bed. Pay special attention to the bald spots but work through your entire scalp.
Take one drop (1 drop only) per day and massage into the scalp before going to bed. The best way to do it is to dispense one drop onto your finger, then rub all your fingertips together to distribute the oil, and then massage the scalp with your fingertips. This treatment must be applied every day, without a single day being skipped.
This is one of the few times where we will use neat (undiluted) pure essential oil on the skin, and you are advised to be on the lookout for any skin irritation. Should that occur immediately cease with the treatment.
Since essential oils can irritate the mucus membranes you are strongly advised to thoroughly wash your hands after applying this treatment, as to prevent accidental transference of the neat oil into your eyes or other sensitive areas.
