Studies Show That Emu Oil Can Be Used To Help Treat Hair Loss
Total Articles: 2
The use of emu oil to treat hair loss and stimulate hair regrowth is becoming widely popular.
At Boston University, Dr Michael Holick, Professor of Dermatology, has carried out studies (in both mice and humans) to see whether emu oil helps to regrow hair.
Dr Holick's results are very positive and in one test with mice he found over 80% of hair follicles that had become dormant were re-activated with new growth.
In another test on balding people he divided volunteers into one group that applied corn oil into their scalps and to the other he gave emu oil. The group that used emu oil showed clearly evident signs of hair regrowth but the group that used corn oil showed none.
In his own words: “A hair follicle goes through a cycle. It goes from a resting stage into an active growth period, and then it goes back to sleep again. We woke up all the hair follicles by stimulating them, and then we wanted to see if we could further stimulate these hair follicles by topically applying emu oil. We found that there was an enhancement in the growth activity of the hair follicles.” 
Many hair regrowth treatments actually only slow the process of balding and offer no permanent solution.
People who suffer from hair loss have enough to concern them without trying to figure out the final solution.
Pure Emu oil is gently massaged directly onto the affected areas of the scalp at least twice a day. Only the smallest quantity of oil is needed. It is non-greasy and quickly soaks into the skin once applied.
(The oil has the remarkable feature of being non-comedogenic, which means it does not clog the pores of the skin. Thus, using it on the scalp or skin at any time will not cause acne of inflammation. In fact many people use the oil to treat their acne!)
Many users apply more oil to the scalp at night than they do during the day and some even go to bed every night wearing a shower-cap. Either way, the amount used before bed is still only a few drops.
Within weeks, the hair that can first regrow is known as Vellus Hair which is barely noticeable, short, fine and light colored.
Over more time, and with careful regular use of emu oil, hair regrowth can become more pronounced.
It is critical that the oil used for hair regrowth is properly refined.
Some oils that have only been crudely refined may contain sodium hydroxide, trans-fatty acids, and other products that are not found in better refined oils.
The highest grade of emu oil available today is called Ultra Clear which is 100% natural, 100% pure and 100% safe to use.
