    A product for every hair-care need

    OTC

    HAIR CARE

    Americans spend billions of dollars on products to address specific hair and scalp concerns each year—whether that be color, condition, or appearance. While some consumers buy these products at salons or at department stores, many prefer the more-affordable options that are as close as the pharmacy.

    While serious conditions should be diagnosed and treated by qualified medical professionals, many aesthetic issues, minor-damage issues, and dandruff/scalp issues can be remedied by OTC products.

    These treatments, some of which are especially designed for children, promise to make a difference in the health of your scalp and the appearance of your hair. They include:

    Hollywood Beauty Tea Tree Oil Skin & Scalp Treatment (Hollywood Beauty Imports) contains seven natural oils and is intended to treat dry, itchy scalps and to fight fungus. Its formula is touted as a natural preventative for dry skin and can be used on skin, scalp, and nails. The oil is to be gently massaged on dry areas. For nail treatments, the oil is mixed with warm water to creating a soaking solution.

    Cantu Shea Butter Grow Strong Hair Strengthening Treatment (Advanced Beauty Systems) promises to strengthen fragile, weak, and brittle hair. It also offers protection against heat and styling damage. The formula contains shea butter and other oils designed to replace the scalp’s natural oils.

    The product can be massaged into hair beginning at the roots and working towards the ends before brushing, styling, and dying. It can also be left on the hair under a cap overnight. The product’s makers suggest applying the treatment three days prior and three days after relaxing or coloring hair.
