  • Hair growth with lavender

    I don’t know a guy who wouldn’t apply something to his bald spot if it worked.  It makes sense to apply something topically rather than take something orally.  So recently researchers applied minoxidil, the primary ingredient in Rogaine, or lavender oil on skin areas of laboratory mice.  New hair follicles, thicker skin, and deeper hair follicle depth were predictably demonstrated with minoxidil.  Surprisingly lavender oil had a hair growth-promoting effect.  Researchers suggest lavender oil could be a practical application to promote hair growth.
