Scalp Massage with Essential Oils or other treatments. What have you tried?
I'm intrigued by the regularly referred to double blind study about massaging essential oils into your scalp that appeared to show a good (1/3rd of the participants?) success rate when checked at the three and seven month points. It seems pretty iffy but harmless imo. For details, you can read Isobelle C. Hay's 1998 "Randomized Trial of Aromatherapy: Successful Treatment for Alopecia Areata" study in JAMA Dermatology.
I'm trying it on myself (nightly and washing it out in the morning) because my hair's thinned out to less than 1/4 or 1/3rd of its peak density and I've only recently passed sixty. I'm skipping the jojoba oil carrier oil component, that's just too expensive and as merely one of the "carrier" oils seemed a discretionary component. Is anyone else following this scalp massage method of self-treatment for their hair loss or tried it earlier?
