What do you make of the video below. It claims excess sebum on the scalp can cause hair loss and that the tincture of herbals and scrubbing (and brushing?) help to allow the hair follicles underneath to grow. Is there any chance that this could work? I am under the impression that shampoo eliminates sebum. Off topic regarding shampoo, should we be shampooing our scalp and our hair or just our hair?
There is hope everywhere (after all, it springs eternal). I would doubt that anything shown here will work for another person as it did for the lady demonstrating the technique in the beginning of the above video from Honolulu’s ABC affiliate. It’s obvious the news anchors have no idea about what they’re talking about when discussing hair loss, and this is quite a puff piece for this herbal maker.
As to your other question — you should shampoo your scalp and hair (the main reason for shampooing is to clean the scalp).
