ISSUE: Oily Scalp + Thin, Dry Hair

December 7, 2010 at 9:10 am | Damaged Hair, Dry Hair, How to Use, Thin Hair, Troubled Scalp | No comment

Dear Philip,

I am a 27-year-old man and have long brown hair to my shoulders. I’ve had a problem with hair loss since age 17, and my hair is thin, dry and straight. I also have an oily scalp, and a little dandruff in my eyebrows. A week ago I started to wash my hair with Anti-Flake shampoo, and I use the Peppermint & Avocado Shampoo on alternate days. After each wash I apply a normal conditioner on the ends of my hair; otherwise it becomes very difficult to comb.

As I’ve read on your website my treatment should be:

  1. Rejuvenating Oil applied with a hair dryer
  2. Peppermint & Avocado Shampoo
  3. Anti-Flake Shampoo

Should all of this be applied daily? Is it necessary to use the hair dryer? Is it necessary to use some conditioner or some other product?

Here’s what I recommend for you:

Once a week: A Rejuvenating Oil treatment.

  1. Apply the oil to dry hair and massage it in with your fingertips. And yes, it’s important to use a hair dryer to warm up the oil – heat helps the oil sink into your hair and loosens dead cells and debris from your scalp.
  2. After letting the oil sit on your hair for 20 minutes, work a dollop of the Peppermint & Avocado shampoo into your hair and then get in the shower and add a bit of water.
  3. Lather it up for 3-5 minutes – that will leave your scalp feeling cool and fresh. Rinse. Your hair should feel balanced all over.

Every day: If you wash your hair everyday, use the Peppermint & Avocado Shampoo or our Scent of Santa Fe Shampoo, which is nice and balancing and will make your hair feel softer. Finish with the Light-Weight Deep Conditioning Crème on the ends only and Rinse.

Every three days: Use the Peppermint Shampoo (leave on for 2-3 minutes) followed by Anti- Flake (also leave on for 2-3 minutes before you rinse).

Together, that regimen should get your scalp and hair in great shape.
