This is my scalp care formula hair oil. It comes in an amber glass bottle with a treatment pump top for easy dispensing. Each bottle contains 1.8 ounces of product. It also comes with an instruction sheet and ingredients listing separate from the bottle.

The problem with putting oil on a flaky scalp is that MOST vegetable oils contain oleic acid, and that particular fatty acid has been shown to INDUCE dandruff. There are also studies showing the yeast called malessizia, which may be responsible for seborrheic dermatitis, can thrive in the presence of oleic acids. This means that putting olive oil, or just about any other vegetable oil on your head can be doing more harm than good. Even the cocoa butter and Argan oil in my other formulas should be avoided. (Mineral oil has no oleic acid, but here at Ballyhoo Bath I prefer to stay away from petrochemical based ingredients.)

Now enters the magic of Meadowfoam Oil. I fell in love with this stuff the minute I tried it. It is light and non-greasy when you rub it on skin and it instantly gives the skin a healthy glow. It also seems to penetrate hair quickly with no buildup. And best of all, Meadowfoam is unlike any other plant based oil - it has no Oleic acid, but has some fatty acids that were undiscovered until researchers found Meadowfoam in the 1950s. It also demonstrates superior anti-oxidant powers and seems to have anti-inflammatory effects as well. The science is still new for Meadowfoam, but I expect it will become one of the beauty buzzwords in the next few years. Don't wait for the bandwagon - lead the darn parade yourself!

So what's all this got to do with dandruff and scalp issues? Well, nothing really. I'm not going to tell you that meadowfoam will cure dandruff because nobody has done that research yet. But I CAN tell you that using meadowfoam to condition your hair is one of the gentlest methods that should not make a scalp condition worse than it already is and many people will notice an improvement. I have also infused some scalp friendly herbs into this oil and added essential oils of Tea Tree and Lavender for an extra healthy scalp boost.

You can use this as a pre-shampoo treatment 1-3 times per week. Just rub some in, leave a few minutes, then wash it out. Shampoo until it lathers abundantly - this means the excess oil has been removed.

If you're tired of harsh shampoos and dried out hair, give my Scalp Care Shampoo and hair oil a try. All natural ingredients. Each derived from plant sources. Vegan friendly. Sustainable packaging. 'Nuff said?

Pssst!!! Meadowfoam and tea tree also make a nice serum for oily facial skin, so this can double as a moisturizing facial serum that shouldn't induce breakouts.
