I apply the oil to the roots of my hair in its pure form. I keep it there as long as time permits. Sometimes this comes to six hours. I don’t know whether the oil has helped, or whether my hair has stopped falling out after my hormonal balance was restored (I know that after childbirth, hair falls out for many persons, but this problem passes with time), BUT my hair stopped falling out! This makes me terribly happy! Now there is three times less hair in my comb. Some new hair has appeared on my forehead. I will keep using the oil!
