Alopecia Hair Scrub with Essential Oils

essential oils for alopecia hair growth

Let’s talk alopecia hair care (or lack-there-of!) With this Alopecia Hair Scrub with Essential Oils!

So yesterday, I told you all about how I came out to my entire community about my alopecia. (You can read that post here)

It was both a terrifying and freeing experience. One that I would recommend to anybody who has struggled in their life – Hair related or otherwise!

Today I am going to talk to you about a little scrub that I made this morning.

Essential Oils and Hair Loss

I have never used essential oils for my alopecia before, I always intended to but it never happened.
Now I want to try that again – so I made a hair scrub for alopecia!

The three oils I have chosen for this are:

  • Rosemary – For improved cellular regeneration and help support the immune system
  • Cedarwood – Thought to balance oil-producing glands on your scalp
  • Lavender – Known for speeding hair growth and reducing stress

All three oils I love and have been used throughout my general oily journey. But now we are stepping it up a notch!

The oil:

Carrier oils carry amazing benefits of their own. For this, I have chosen Jojoba.
Jojoba oil has been known to help treat skin conditions, such as eczema and acne – So that is why I chose jojoba!

Why a scrub and not oil?

The reason I chose to do a scrub is simply that I wanted to increase blood flow to my scalp.
Scrubs are known for being an excellent way to exfoliate and assist with healthy blood flow.

How I made it

Recipe time!

Supplies and ingredients:

  • 1 cup of brown sugar
    (I used a tiny bit less because I wasn’t sure if it would fit in the jar)
  • 30ml Jojoba oil
  • 7 drops each of Rosemary, Lavender and Cedarwood
  • Mixing bowl
  • Jar/container

  2. Stir well, until everything is properly mixed
  3. Store in your chosen container/jar
  4. Allow sitting for a few hours

To use: Apply to your scalp and allow to sit for an hour or two.
Rinse off with warm water and/or in the shower

Caution: Do not get this in or near your eyes!
This mix contains Rosemary, therefore is not recommended for children under 10!

Did it work?

I haven’t tried it out yet!
I am not holding my breath, because Alopecia is an incredibly fickle and cruel disease.
Even if your hair does grow back, there are zero guarantees that it will stay. (I know from past experience!)

However, I have every faith that if anything is going to work – it is going to be oils!

I will keep you all updated with how it goes!
