My friend (guy) goes to a laser therapy clinic for thinning hair.  He insists that it's working.  However - the therapy causes hard little sebum plug-like spots on his head.  He is currently using a scalp cleansing serum (sold by the laser clinic) that looks like it's mostly surfactants that easily removes these little hard nodules.  This serum is expensive (even though the ingredient list looks cheap) and he has asked me to make him something that would just as well.  The ingredients of this serum are:  water, sulfated castor oil, PEG 75, Lanolin, Lecithin, Quarternium-15, Propylene Glycol, Peg 12 Oleate, Polysorbate & fragrance.   Does anyone know of anything that I could make that work just as well.  How about an olive oil formula of some sort?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you -

Interesting. I looked it up in Wikipedia (see below). I will have to read a lot more than that before I can even guess how to replace that serum (shampoo) but it would be nice if he could try our no-nonsense cleanser and see how it copes with the "hard nodules". And, incidentally, our KGF hair serum can only help.

Turkey red oil

Turkey red oil, also called sulphonated (or sulfated) castor oil, is made by adding sulfuric acid to vegetable oils, most notably castor oil.[44] It was the first synthetic detergent after ordinary soap. It is used in formulating lubricants, softeners, and dyeing assistants.

Thanks Hannah.  Yes, I've been pushing the KGF serum.  I'll try the no-nosense cleanser and see how it goes!

Thanks for your speedy reply -

Hannah, one more question: Can Hair Care Serum be used along with Rogaine(Minoxidil). Are they not mutually excluding?

They should complement each other, but if you are using Rogaine with alcohol in the formulation, leave some time between the two so that KGF is not affected by the alcohol.
