I've actually seen that remedy with the rosemary oil, other oils as well. It's been on my list to try. I'm not having hair loss. With age my hair has gotten thinner but I'm not having any loss.

I think this is a local allergy, though that could be incorrect. I'm taking loads of vitamins as usual, including the ones mentioned. I take high quality, mid-expensive ones, not the cheap store brands.

Did not know that about Rogaine. No thanks. Not willing to lose hair to gain more hair down the line.

For external use, I am surprised that no one has mentioned rosemary essential oil...other than the mention of one shampoo that has some form of rosemary in it. Doubtful that was enough to make a lasting difference. Rosemary essential oil is good for seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis and other itchy scalp conditions.

Generally, take a tablespoom or two of cold-pressed coconut oil or pure aloe vera gel, add a drop of rosemary essential oil. Start small with the rosemary; it can be increased gradually if needed. Apply to your scalp and leave in for at least 10 minutes before shampooing with a natural, mild shampoo and rinse very well. Do this about twice a week; adjust as needed.

Don't apply the essential oil directly to scalp without a carrier like coconut oil, aloe vera, etc., and test a small area first.

This should calm things down, along with addressing it internally. Give it time. If you are experiencing hair loss too, rosemary encourages regrowth. A study done a few years ago compared minoxidil with rosemary essential oil. There was little regrowth after 3 months with either one, but both showed significant regrowth after 6 months.

Some people find relief from just rinsing with tea made from rosemary leaves after using a mild cleanser like baby shampoo, pure castile, etc. The concentrated scent of essential oil can be too strong for some so they make tea with rosemary tea bags. But, if you are losing hair too, you may, or may not, see regrowth with this alternative method.
With the Aveeno shampoo, it worked for a while but scalp is starting to itch again, not bad, but am noticing it's returning. So, I'm going to try the coconut and rosmary as you've suggested here...
I was using peppermint and peppermint shampoo, which helped for a time, but walla, back to square one...again. It's really frustrating....and I started being mindful of rinsing very well...

Thanks so much for the suggestions....

Selsun Blue shampoo worked for me when I had a skin condtion called tina versa cola (sp). I used it on my chest. I was told by my doctor, to rub it on, in the shower, and let it sit for about 5 minutes, then wash it off. It did help me.

I used coconut oil and one drop of rosemary essential oil last night and it really tingled but washed it out after 1/2 hour and what a difference....I will continue doing this 2 or 3 times a week
Thank you so very much.
