After discussing essential oils on the Facebook page, I realized that there were very good mixtures to prevent lock loss. I have noticed some lock atrophy after every re-tightening and to hedge this excess popping of the shaft due to tension, I've decided to try a treatment.

I like to shampoo before a re-tightening and to avoid shampoos with hard ingredients and preservatives that are starting to be linked with hair loss and even cancer. So I went to Wholefoods and purchased a few supplies:
  • I start with Dr. Bronner's Castile soap with a few drops of peppermint added. Dr. Bronner's liquid soap is an organic fair trade bit of magic. I've cleanses without stripping your hair and skin. 
  • Peppermint oil is an astringent that balances your scalps pH, neutralizes dry scalp and excess oil build up. It also stimulates growth.
  • Afterward I plan on treating my scalp with a spritz of clary sage, jojoba oil, distilled water and bergamot oil.
  • Clary Sage is proven to boost hair growth, soaks excess oil and reverse hair loss problems. It is also used in aromatherapy to soothe anxiety, stress and depression.
  • Bergamot is a potent it is an anti-fungal pH balancing oil that also stimulates growth.
  • Jojoba oil's molecular structure is very similar to natural oils humans produce (sebum) and works with varied hair types. It is also a carrier oils, also known as vegetable oils, base oils or fixed oils, are used to dilute essential oils, CO2s and absolutes before applying to the skin. 
Let's see how it works.
