Essential Oils after Foam


#1

I am doing a rosemary, lavender and cedarwood blend applied onto hair about an hour after Foam… anyone knows if this is a good idea to mix a drug to a nature treatment??

It is unlikely that the two treatments will interact. The first treatment may have an impact on the penetration of the foam. Keep in mind that just because these treatments are natural it does not mean that they are inert and could not pose side effects just as prescription drugs do.

You may find it easier to apply the Essential oil blend before going to bed and so its left on overnight.

I think it is a bit of a nonsense. Essential oils have the ability to tremendously enhance absorption. They must be applied BEFORE the active antihairloss ingredients, whatever they are.

Rogaine foam doesn’t need any help with absorption. I wouldn’t be putting anything on my scalp while the foam is in the scalp for at least 3 to 4 hrs.
Thats just my opinion.

Foam is controversial. I’m speaking about plain minox-alcohol solutions.
