Scrub Hair Loss with Homemade Shampoos
Between flat ironing and coloring, hair loss, thinning or damage can easily occur, especially if you’re over-styling.
Salon owner and stylist Tamika Fletcher uses a scalp scope at her Natural Resouces Salon to take photos of the scalp and identify and address individual hair loss and growth problems, according to ABC 13 in Houston.
Fletcher recommends cosmetic company Lush’s stimulating and reviving shampoo bar as a natural way to help thinning hair if your hair loss is not very severe. The bar is targeted toward women who want to regrow hair or simply revitalize existing hair.
“What’s great [is] that it has essential oils in it that are awesome for stimulating your follicles, especially if you are struggling with hair growth,” Fletcher explained to ABC 13 in Houston.
The Lush product costs nearly 12 dollars per bar, but you can make your own for much less with just a few ingredients.
“I have made about six bars for less than $10, so there is really a great savings there,” Fletcher told ABC 13 in Houston.
You need sodium coco sulfate to create your own.
“This is very gentle, it’s a pellet made from a coconut oil that is actually a detergent, a soap detergent.”
In addition to 16 ounces of sodium coco sulfate, you need distilled water, jojoba oil, rosemary extract and cinnamon oil.
“The cinnamon oil is the most important part of the process,” Fletcher explained to ABC 13 in Houston. “The general idea is that you want essential oils that cause stimulation and if it makes your skin tingle, then you know you have stimulated blood flow and that’s what is going to get your hair to grow.”
Combine the wet ingredients together to create molds using a muffin pan. Let the mixture sit overnight and it will harden into a shampoo bar. Lather with water and apply the product to your scalp.
If the hair loss progresses after using a DIY shampoo, Fletcher suggests trying the product line The Keranique Collection. You can find this hair growth collection online with products ranging from 20 to 39 dollars.
“The hair re-growth treatment is the most important part of the system because this is the actual ingredient that is going to help your hair grow,” Fletcher told ABC 13 in Houston. “It has 2 percent Minoxidil. It’s the only ingredient that is FDA approved to help regrow hair for women.”
