Whilst some the shampoos such as Piroctone Olamine are useful to lower inflammation - in the long term they can be drying to the scalp.

It may be an idea to use an Essential Oil blend alongside the shampoo or topical.

There is an interesting combo of Emu oil/Snail secretions which you might want to look into if you are having problems with dryness. I'll post the adress but I believe it comes from a company called bohemian??

The active group massaged essential oils (thyme, rosemary, lavender, and cedarwood) in a mixture of carrier oils (jojoba and grapeseed) into their scalp daily.

THYME ESSENTIAL OIL- 2 DROPS
CEDARWOOD ESSENTIAL OIL- 2 DROPS
LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL - 3 DROPS
ROSEMARY OIL - 3 DROPS
JOJOBA OIL - 1/2 TEASPOON
GRAPESEED OIL 4 TEASPOONS

Add first 4 ingred. in a small jar, mix well. Add remaining 2, mix thoroughly....Massage into scalp 2 minutes. Leave on overnight and rinse in the morning.

I've bought from them before.  They're legit.

It's more expensive on the front end - because you have to purchase at 6 different oils (and a dropper bottle) (plus emu oil if you're like me).   But once you have all the ingerdients they last a long, long, long time.

So, yes - definitely cheaper.

I came across the http://www.hairgrowthessentials.com/home.html website at the same time I came across the recipe for the home-made scottish study - so I ended up buying the pre-mixed bottle and the individual ingredients.  They're both good.

Essential rosemary oil is dangerous as hell. It's one powerful convulsant and is known to induce seizures even when applied topically. It shouldn't be used for anything other than aromatherapy.

I've never had an issue w/ inflammation - but if that's your problem - go w/ straight emul oil.
