DoTerra Essential Oil Support For:
Hair loss can start with a few extra hairs in the sink or in your comb. Later, it can progress to a bare scalp.
Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp and can be the result of heredity, certain medications or an underlying medical condition. Anyone — men, women and children — can experience hair loss.
Permanent hair loss
- Male-pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). For men, pattern baldness can begin early, even in the teens or early 20s. It’s typically characterized by a receding hairline at the temples and balding at the top of the head. The end result may be partial or complete baldness.
- Female-pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). Women with permanent hair loss usually have hair loss limited to thinning at the front, sides or crown. Women usually maintain their front hairline and rarely experience complete baldness.
- Cicatricial (scarring) alopecia. This rare condition occurs when inflammation damages and scars hair follicles, causing permanent hair loss. Sometimes the patchy hair loss is associated with itching or pain.
Temporary hair loss
- Alopecia areata. Hair loss usually occurs in small, round, smooth patches about the size of a quarter. Usually the disease doesn’t extend beyond a few bare patches on the scalp, but it can cause patchy hair loss on any area that has hair, including eyebrows, eyelashes and beard. In rare cases, it can progress to cause hair loss over the entire body. If the hair loss includes your entire scalp, the condition is called alopecia totalis. If it involves your whole body, it’s called alopecia universalis. Soreness and itching may precede the hair loss, but symptoms are often minimal.
- Telogen effluvium. This type of temporary hair loss occurs suddenly, most often after a significant illness or major life stress. Handfuls of hair may come out when combing or washing your hair or may fall out after gentle tugging. This type of hair loss usually causes overall hair thinning and not bald patches.
- Traction alopecia. Bald patches can occur if you regularly wear certain hairstyles, such as pigtails, braids or cornrows, or if you use tight rollers. Hair loss typically occurs between the rows or at the part where hair is pulled tightly.
- Anagen effluvium. In this type of hair loss, actively growing hairs in the anagen state are affected most often by chemotherapeutic drugs given to fight cancer or lymphoma. Hair loss starts soon after beginning therapy and is more extensive than in the telogen effluvium state. In the weeks after the therapy has been completed, the hair cycles re-establish themselves, although the hair may not return as thickly as before chemotherapy.

Take 2-3 drops of Frankincense Oil, Rosemary Oil and Melalueca Oil in a capsule daily.

Take Life Long Vitality Vitamins daily
My hair is quite thin and especially on the top so I started the rosemary regiment by adding it to my shampoo in the shower and then after rinsing the shampoo I added a few drops to the thin areas and left it on. I have been doing this for about 2 months and am just starting to notice some new hair growth.
Hair loss and thinning is caused by hormonal imbalance (such as increased testosterone), or inflammatory conditions, and genetics. Essential Oils are excellent for cleansing, nourishing, and strengthening hair follicle and shaft. Rosemary, above all encourages hair growth.
Single oils: lavender, rosemary, sandalwood, ylang ylang, and clary sage
Blend for thicker hair
· 3 drops of rosemary
· 5 drops of lavender

I have personally noticed a significant increase in the amount of hair on my head, the rate of hair and nail growth, as well as improvement in the condition of both hair and nails, after using the LLW trio (Life Long Vitality Vitamins) for approximately six months. It seems that the supplements have really helped to rebalance my body’s systems, and now are also able to help the outer bits look healthier also!
And yes, besides the LLW, rosemary is AWESOME – does indeed take time, but it does help!
I second the advice for LLW for hair. I had a baby last April and by July, most of my hair had fallen out. This has happened with previous 5 babies and it never grew back, so by #6, my hair was so thin, you could see my scalp. It was horrifying. I didn’t even want to leave the house. I researched everything I could about what I could do, and came up empty. I discovered DoTerra about the same time, so I started putting peppermint on my scalp every night and then in August, I started on LLW (Life Long Vitality Vitamins). Within a month, I began to see re-growth all over my head, and now it’s about an inch long. I feel like my 3 year old, with all of her new growth, but I’m not complaining! I 100% attribute it to LLW. I also now add rosemary, when I remember, to my scalp per advice I read here, but I think the LLW was the main thing for me!
