At Johairba we feature our 2 step ritual – a serum and a shampoo – for the best all natural healthy hair treatment available today, providing a drug-free remedy for thinning hair. 

Johairba products are a complex blend of organic plant based essential oils including Cedarwood, Rosemary, Jojoba, Bay and Almond, developed to naturally and effectively rejuvinate hair, promote healthy hair growth and strengthen hair. The Johairba treatment targets the hair follicles and roots, where the hair’s strength and healthy growth is developed. The shampoo starts by cleansing and nourishing the pores in your scalp, and the serum then provides hydration deep within the hair follicle. Finally the serum provides the essential nutrients needed to regain normal function of the hair follicle.

Our shampoo also contains the following ingredients:
Aqua, Capryl glucoside, Coco-Betaine, Glycerin, Perfume, Cinchona succirubra, Salvia officinalis, Citrus limonum, Potassium oleate, Lavender, Potassium cocoate, Potassium Palmitate, Potassium Stearate, Sorbic acid, Dehydroacetic acid, Citric acid, Limonene.

This combination has been proven to: 
• Nourish the hair follicles
• Strengthen and encourage the growth of existing hair
• Promote the growth of weaker, less visible hairs
• Make hair look naturally vibrant and feel better 
• Accelerate the circulation of blood, enhancing the volume of the hair follicles and roots.

Studies : What Does the Research Say About Essential Oils?

 A recently documented study judging the effectiveness of essential oils in the treatment of Alopecia areata
Hay IC, Jamieson M, Ormerod AD Department of Dermatology, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, Foresterhill, Scotland.
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the efficacy of aromatherapy in the treatment of patients with alopecia areata.
DESIGN:A randomized, double-blind, controlled trial of 7 months’ duration, with follow-up at 3 and 7 months. SETTING: Dermatology outpatient department.
PARTICIPANTS: Eighty-six patients diagnosed as having alopecia areata.
INTERVENTION: Eighty-six patients were randomized into 2 groups. The active group massaged essential oils (thyme, rosemary, lavender, and cedarwood) in a mixture of carrier oils (jojoba and grapeseed) into their scalp daily. The control group used only carrier oils for their massage, also daily.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Treatment success was evaluated on sequential photographs by 2 dermatologists (I.C.H. and A.D.O.) independently. Similarly, the degree of improvement was measured by 2 methods: a 6-point scale and computerized analysis of traced areas of alopecia. 

RESULTS: Nineteen (44%) of 43 patients in the active group showed improvement compared with 6 (15%) of 41 patients in the control group (P = .008 ). An alopecia scale was applied by blinded observers on sequential photographs and was shown to be reproducible with good interobserver agreement (kappa = 0.84). The degree of improvement on photographic assessment was significant (P = .05). Demographic analysis showed that the 2 groups were well matched for prognostic factors. 

CONCLUSIONS: The results show aromatherapy to be a safe and effective treatment for alopecia areata. Treatment with these essential oils was significantly more effective than treatment with the carrier oil alone (P = .008 for the primary outcome measure). We also successfully applied an evidence-based method to an alternative therapy. 

In research conducted in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Scotland, 43 alopecia patients received daily 2-minute scalp massges with essential oils of thyme, rosemary, lavender, cedarwood, mixed with jojoba and grapeseed oils. Another 43 received scalp massages using just jojoba and grapeseed oils. After seven months, 19 people in the essential-oil group grew hair, compared to 6 people in the control group. The results included one man who regrew a full head of hair from an almost completely bald scalp, says Isabelle C. Hay, MRCP, the medical doctor and specialist in dermatology who spearheaded the study. The above comments were excerpted from Prevention Magazine.

2 easy steps to healthy hair

Our essential oils solution for healthy hair

things to remember:

• Apply one to two times per week.

• Apply only to the scalp.

• Ideally apply the serum at night and shampoo the next morning.

• Leave on for at least 3 hours before washing your hair.

This treatment can be used as a rescue-intensive treatment or as a long-term treatment to restore vitality and shine Intensive treatment: 1 to 2 times a week for at least 6 months (repeat if necessary). As a maintenance treatment : 2 applications per month throughout the year It is normally best to start massaging at the hairline on your neck, working upwards and over the entire scalp until you finish off at your temples. Ensure that the entire scalp is treated. When done correctly your hair will not be oily, and you will be able to go to sleep like this after waiting 30 minutes. Should you however need to wash your hair after the treatment, ensure that the serum has been on your scalp for at least 2 hours. When washing your hair after the treatment, we recommend you use a our Johairba shampoo as it has been specially formulated to complement the treatment.

if you would like to use your own shampoo, we suggest you make sure it is very mild and does not include any of the following ingredients: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Laureth Sulfate Mineral oils Oleyl betaine Propylene Glycol Alcohol These ingredients impair hair growth and can cause inflammation of the scalp.

1. Pour a small amount of oil – about a half a teaspoon – into a saucer and dip the tips of your fingers into the oil. Apply the oil by placing your fingers on your scalp, and massage the oil into the scalp – do not cause to much friction on the scalp, as this may damage the hair and the hair follicles.

2. It is important to complete the minimum 6 months of treatment, or 12 months for thinning that has started more than 6 months ago.

3. It is also recommended to keep using the serum after the treatment’s duration at a smaller dosage to maintain the hygiene of the scalp and to continue nourishment of the hair follicles. To help the oils to be more effectively absorbed, we recommend wrapping a warm towel around the head after applying the oil. It is not a necessity however it does improve the absorption rate around the follicles and pores.
