Alopecia causing hair fall or hair growth problems might be caused by fungus growth, mineral build up, under-active hair follicles combined with other conditions. My hair growth lotion combines ingredients from traditional cultures around the world and homegrown knowledge to encourage hair to stay and grow by making the scalp a healthy, happy place to be.
HAIR GROWTH LOTION FOR HEALTHY SCALP STORY
I think it's really fun to have great hair. Yet it's tough to find ways of making it grow as healthy strong and thick as possible. Sure, genetics plays a big role but I think we can help it out too. Most cultures have herbs and methods to help hair grow and some of these seem to have scientific merit.
I've looked into other cultures suggestions for growing thick healthy hair and preventing hair fall and researched some of the studies on these methods. My Healthy Scalp and Happy Hair Lotion includes some of those that seem most promising. I know it won't work for everyone because the reasons our hair won't grow are certainly varied and complicated. However I do think my lotion is worth a try to see if it helps you.
WHO I MADE MY HAIR GROWTH LOTION FOR HEALTHY SCALP FOR
Hair Growth Lotion is great to try for anyone who wants to make sure nothing is getting in the way of their healthy, strong, thick hair from growing. Also great for those experiencing excessive itchiness and flakiness of their scalp. Dandruff and Seborrheaic dermatitis can cause skin build up and blockage while providing an environment for yeast growth. People who have used antibiotics or treated their scalp with lice treatments such as permethrin or pyrethrins, ivermectin or spinosad may find they have a yeast overgrowth.
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT MY HAIR GROWTH LOTION FOR HEALTHY SCALP
If you are like me, you don't want to wait to try every single suggestion you hear one at a time, sometimes for weeks. You just want results. Ingredients often work synergistically as well, supporting each other and making each more than they would work alone. There's a lot of ingredients included to address a number of issues that might be going on. While some people might be better suited for a single, one at a time approach, this lotion might be perfect for those who don't need or want to go that route. I suggest you track if it is helping or if it is not.

THE PROCESS I USE TO MAKE HAIR GROWTH LOTION FOR HEALTHY SCALP
I purchase my oils in small, usable quantities so they are fresh. I felt that this product should be a lotion that will wash away, so it required a chemical emulsification process which ALWAYS requires a preservation system in my opinion. I use the most organically safe preservation system I can free of formaldehyde and parabens. The preservative I use is correctly listed as Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Sorbic Acid, however some people who make lotions understandably choose to disguise it as Optiphen plus (they do the same thing with Germall plus and Germaban but those have different ingredients.)
Despite our popularity, I still make everything personally by hand in the kitchen we (my husband Kevin and I) have as part of our shop used exclusively to make ZirYab's products in Silver City, NM. I am constantly searching to balance quality and purity of ingredients with cost effectiveness and ease of use. Since we're a small company, I think it is important that I retain the right to change an ingredient to retain freshness, quality and effectiveness or make it better. I always try to update the label and the listing if this is necessary but I ask you to also let me know if you have an allergy when you order.
DIRECTIONS FOR USING HAIR GROWTH LOTION FOR HEALTHY SCALP
This lotion is thick. You can massage a small amount (start with about a nickel size) on to the area of your scalp giving you the most concern. Start with dry hair for convenience (but you could also do it when your hair is wet). If you want the lotion to spread throughout your hair add a little water to help spread it around. Massage your scalp. This is good to do both for spreading the lotion but it's just good for blood circulation and hair growth in your scalp anyway. To get the most out of it, wait 20 minutes. The shampoo out using your regular shampoo. If you are like me and always pressed for time, it is still worth doing if you don't have 20 minutes. When you are in the shower, wet your hair a bit, massage the lotion in, wash the rest of your body and then shampoo the lotion out.
You might find that the lotion conditions your hair enough so you don't need conditioning or only need a light conditioning.
I suggest trying this once or twice a week.
Avoid any eye contact and do not use directly on mucous membranes. Some of the ingredients (especially sulfur, essential oils and preservatives) can irritate open skin lesions and mucous membranes. If any gets in eye, rinse with lukewarm water for at least 15 minutes.
Since there is a lot of ingredients in it, you need to make sure it isn't irritating you. Do a patch test (Apply a small amount of an ingredient to a patch of skin on the inner, lower arm. Rub it in and allow it to dry on the skin. Do not wash that area of the skin for at least 24 hours; watch for signs of a reaction.)
If you experience any unwanted reaction discontinue use.
