What topical treatments do you use to reduce shedding?


Let's grow some hair
I'm using rosemary oil right now but I'd prefer something less greasy.
I'm not consistent enough to use minoxidil daily in order to avoid the massive shed when you stop and restart.

I recently had excessive shedding due to illness and surgery. I was shedding little toy dog size shed balls. I'm not sure how I'm bald. Anyway, I pulled out AlterEgo hot oil treatment with garlic and with one use my shedding came to a screeching halt. I've had this in my stash for years for this very reason...I works. I have heard mention of using black tea rinses but I have no experience with it. I would suggest using the search function for shedding treatments. There are lots of threads from over the years that offer other options. HTH
