Did you know that most over-the-counter treatments for hair loss contain a medication called minoxidil.

Minoxidil is quite effective in preventing hair loss but only works during the period of application and has several undesirable side effects including itchiness and dermatosis.

In many cases these products, when they do work, are not any more effective than the essential oils we will be talking about on this page; essential oils that are all natural and have the backing of many scientific studies into preventing hair loss.

Rosemary Essential Oil is one of the best oils to use against hair loss and it can also address issues such as greasy hair and dandruff.
