Uncle Vic's Fort MIms Inspired Scalp Tonic

ITCHY SCALP - Dandruff - Scabs - 
                             Bloody Pillow Spots -  Cracking Scalp

All problems I have.  I tend to have dry skin anyway.  And washing hair too frequently was a big cause of my dry scalp and flaking.  But Not washing enough left the dandruff and itching to build up too.   Some thirty years ago I began to try blending some easily found over the counter ingredients that could help my scalp.  After all this time, I am now comfortable with the formula I arrived at.  For now, I make it with the commercially available over the counter ingredients that include tea tree oil and mouthwash and witch hazel among other things.

The formula ingredients will be listed on the label.   But the percentages in the blend matter.  The ingredients each have their own purpose and contribute to a healthy - breathable - scalp  and control of  cracked skin and scabbing.

Uncle Vic's Scalp Tonic -
................ Inspired by the events at Fort Mims in 1813

Place 4 - 8 drops of tonic on top of scalp (using the squirt top to apply).  Massage the tonic into the scalp using a mild - blunt tipped - soft plastic brush. This spreads the thin tonic around the scalp. Use key drops on problem areas before the massage.   The alcohol and witch hazel in the formula help to spread out the tea tree oil (onto the scalp) . Tea tree oil is known for its therapeutic value - while the solution provides some extra antiseptic value.  Salicylic acid is included in a low concentration and helps to calm some of the itching. It is an analgesic.  A veterinary surgical scrub and wound dressing with chlorhexidine is in low percentage also . It adds greatly to antiseptic protection and is not affected by the other organic ingredients.   There is a mild medicinal odor to the treatment. This dissipates as the tonic dries out. The medicinal odor is mainly the tea tree oil.

Use 3-4 times a week. More early on if the problem is severe. Use it after  a shower so it has a chance to stay in place for a day.  IF possible wash your hair less often a few days while the initial treatments are taking affect.   My 8 oz bottles have lasted as long as 60 days or as little as a month.
