But with the use of the following products 7 L.O.C.S. – Love of Crown Strength I pray to see growth and thickness of my hair strands of hair with the use of essential oils.
My hair is my CROWN glory.7 L.O.C.S.– Love Of Crown Strength, Usage of the following products helps control unbalanced hormones caused by changes to the hair follicles of the scalp. My hair gives warnings of problems occurring inside my body leading to dry scalp, stunted hair growth, hair thinning, and hair loss.
Healthy hair thinning resulting from follicular miniaturization is the hormone-driven natural process in which strands shrink in size over time, ultimately leaving a bald scalp in the area of the temple, frontal hairline, and crown of the scalp, identified as “pattern alopecia,” a result of aging.
The extent of hair loss depends on hereditary and hormonal circumstances. In women, this occurs after menopause. In men, it seldom occurs as early as the mid-20s. There is no cure for this condition, but topically applied minoxidil Rogaine® is the only topical medication for hair regrowth approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that has shown benefits.
There are several potential side effects of using the drug
- Skin and eye irritation
- Hives or rashes
- Shortness of breath
- Swelling of the mouth (tongue, lips)
- Tightening of the chest
- Weight gain
A natural alternative for minoxidil Rogaine® is Rosemary Oil which helps stimulate hair growth. Many people also claim that it can prevent baldness, slows graying, and can be used to treat dandruff and dry scalp. The growing hair strands used with rosemary oil were similar to the growing hair strands for the minoxidil.
Dry scalp, hair loss, and menopause aren’t pleasant but are manageable with diet and essential oils that promote hair growth. But sometimes, merely leaving the chemicals alone isn’t enough. It leaves you wondering what to do next. You have done deep conditioning, co-washing, shampooing less and even wearing protective hairstyles, but nothing seems to stop the hair loss and extreme dryness.
NOTE: Oil is a sealant. If your hair is dry and you use oil, you will seal in the dryness. To hydrate, use cool water and water-based products such as a leave-in conditioner. Then use natural oil on top to seal in the moisture.
