Three Easy And Natural Steps For Prompt Results
STEP ONE: Penetrating Lotion
The natural iodine found in sea algae extracts allows the lotion to penetrate follicles and instantly dissolve the harmful plugs. That opens the way for the remaining herbs to flow to the roots, stimulate blood circulation, and nourish them, which is essential to maintaining a healthy scalp.
STEP TWO: Concentrated Shampoo
A highly concentrated herbal shampoo (free from the usual Sodium Laureth Sulfates found in commercial shampoos) that blends ideally with the Penetrating Lotion and removes all scalp impurities without a trace of residues.
STEP THREE: Revitalizing Lotion
The Revitalizing Lotion is designed to maintain actively the esential follicle cleansing, nourishing, and stimulating process on a 24/7 basis. A “tingling” sensation, especially in the early stages of your treatment, is proof of its continuous action. The resulting well-nourished and obstruction-free follicles promote healthier and thicker hair, even in areas where it had been often choked out of sight.
OPTIONAL: Moisturizing Conditioner
Its wealth of herbal nutrients, Keratins, and Vitamin E is a perfect solution to restore body and shine to dry, brittle coloured hair. The lotion’s addition of a natural lemon oil extract assure the ideal pH balance.

Using The Full Margo Treatment (A Three Step Process)
NOTE: The best way to apply the product without wasting it is to place the finger tip on the scalp and, using the bottle spigot, drop one drop and work it in a one inch circle.
STEP 1: Apply 10-20 drops of the Penetrating Lotion (Step 1) to the dry scalp and massage lotion in gently until the scalp is covered. Ideally, the lotion should be left about 10 minutes before shampooing but if your time schedule does not allow that, it can be applied and left overnight.
STEP 2: Before wetting the hair, apply the Natural Herbal Shampoo (Step 2) to the scalp, using the same method as in step 1 above. Wet and massage your scalp in the shower, then rinse. If your hair needs it, add a few more drops of the shampoo, work into a rich lather, then rinse thoroughly.
OPTIONAL STEP: If you have very dry or tangling hair, you should use the optional Moisturizing Conditioner. Once you have rinsed off the shampoo, apply a few drops of the Moisturizing Conditioner to your hair and massage gently concentrating on hair ends rather than the scalp. Leave it in your hair for 1-2 minutes then rinse off with cool water.
STEP 3: After towel drying your hair, apply 20-30 drops of the Revitalizing Lotion (Step 3) to your scalp and massage gently until your scalp is covered. After the lotion is applied, you can set or comb your hair. Do not rinse the hair lotion or it will lose its effect. Ideally, you should allow the lotion to dry by itself without blow drying. If you have to blow dry, do it when the hair is almost dry in order to allow the skin to absorb as much of the hair lotion as possible.
In order to get the full benefit from the MARGO ALIVE hair treatment we recommend the full treatment twice a week combined with a daily application of the Revitalizing Lotion, especially at the beginning. The average person needs to shampoo every second day, rinsing the hair with warm water. Though people with extreme oily scalp conditions or very active lifestyles may shampoo every day, they should still use the Penetrating Lotion only twice a week and the Revitalizing Lotion daily.
The frequency of use for the MARGO ALIVE hair treatment may vary individually because we are not all the same and do not have the same scalp needs, but as a general rule, once the first Combo Kit is finished, a once per week full treatment (Step 1, Step 2, (optional Conditioner), and Step 3) is recommended. The daily use of the Revitalizing Lotion is recommended until the scalp and hair condition is fully normalized.

Hair loss is becoming more and more of an issue as the population continues to age. The advent of chemicals in our foods and polluted environments have been adding to the problem.
Margo Alive has created a 3-Step Treatment Program (4 with the optional conditioner) that helps restore the scalp to its natural healthy state. For steps on how to use the 3-Step Treatment Program, please click HERE.
Recently there has been a lot of talk of hair loss in women. It is more popular in men, but some women now are having similar issues. There are different reasons why women can suffer from hair loss:
- Telogen Effluvium. This is a phenomenon that occurs after pregnancy, due to extreme weight loss or stress, or after major surgery. It can also be a side effect of hormones or certain medications.
- Iron Deficiency. Women that have heavy periods or don’t have enough iron in their diet can suffer from iron deficiency.
- Hereditary. This is the most common cause of hair loss. The gene is inherited from either your Mom or Dad’s side and you’re more likely to have it if both your parents carry the gene.
- Alopecia Areata. This is patches of baldness that come and go. It’s typically found with young adults and teenagers. It’s thought to be caused by a problem with the immune system.
- Hypothyroidism. Millions of people, mostly women, are affected with thyroid problems. The thyroid is responsible for everything from your basic metabolic rate to the growth of your hair and skin. Hypothyroidism is a lack of the thyroid hormone.
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). This is a hormonal imbalance where the ovaries produce too much male hormone.
- Anagen Effluvium. This is widespread hair loss due to taking chemotherapy.
- Alopecia Areata. This is an autoimmune disorder that in which the immune system attacks the hair follicles.
- Excessive Styling. Too much work on your hair can cause hair loss. Usually it’s a combination of treatments like keratin, colouring, and blow-drying that affect the hair.
- Lupus. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disorder in which the body’s own immune system attacks the healthy tissue.
Hair loss or weak and thinning hair may not necessarily only be genetic. Age, drugs, stress, protracted use of harsh hair products, and even lifestyle can be major reasons for this condition. Typically, individuals who lead a stressful life or hat wearers often report a higher rate of scalp problems than others.
Whether genetic, age related, or otherwise, hair problems begin with issues caused by dried up sebum and perspiration layers that over the years accumulate in hair follicles. They form plugs that attack hair from two fronts: first, they choke it by restricting the area from which it grows and second, they often harden the scalp to a shiny surface. That scalp congestion hampers both blood circulation and the flow of nutrients to the hair roots.
When that occurs, men start showing bald patches, especially in the front and back of the scalp. Women may also start losing their hair, but they are a little luckier because in most cases, it re-grows, although much thinner and at a slower rate.
How Does The 3-Step Margo Alive Treatment Work?
But thin or even missing hair may not spell the end. The roots may still be a long way from being doomed and our natural way to stimulate and revive them may keep your hair alive for a long time to come.
TV featured drugs that grow hair by altering gland functions such as testosterone blocking, may show growth of some temporary hair, but they may also cause serious and unpleasant side effects.
Over 25 years ago, a group of Italian medical and hair specialists set off to explore alternative ways to treat thinning hair and hair loss. They researched the century old traditions of hair treatment using stinging nettle and sea algae which is common in Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Atlantic Shores.
That research led to the formation of a drug free, modern day natural herbal treatment which is free from dangerous side effects – MARGO ALIVE.
The unique herbal formula found in MARGO ALIVE Triple Action Hair Restoring System:
- Dissolves noxious perspiration salts and sebum plugs to allow hair to grow freely;
- Simulates blood circulation to the scalp to enhance the root system; and
- Prevents the formation of new follicle plugs to avoid future scalp problems.

Recently we changed the formula for our shampoo and made it much more eco-friendly shampoo. We changed some ingredients and removed others.
Over the next few weeks, we are going to write a post about each of the ingredients. For a list of the ingredients and (eventual) links to all of the blog posts, please click HERE.
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate an eco-friendly shampoo ingredient
We use Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI) because it is a sodium salt derived from coconut oil, not derived from animals like cattle and sheep (like sodium tallowate). Our products are NOT TESTED on animals and we aim to use products that are not part of any animal testing.
SCI is a popular surfactant and is found in many eco-friendly products. A surfactant is a compound that lowers the surface tension between two liquids or between a liquid and a solid. So what SCI helps our shampoo do is to lower the surface tension of water which makes the shampoo easier to spread throughout your hair and it helps water and oil bond. What this in turn does is allows water to cling to the dirt and oil in your hair and wash out easily.
SCI is has a very mild nature and that’s why it is used in toothpastes and baby soaps.
We prefer to not use any animal products in our shampoo so this plant-based mild product that works just as well as any animal-based product was a natural choice to add to our line.
- Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI) is a plant-based sodium salt that replaces animal-based products;
- SCI lowers the surface tension of water so it spreads through your hair easily;
- SCI allows water to cling to dirt and oil in your hair and wash out easily;
- SCI has a very mild nature and that’s why it’s used in toothpastes and baby soaps.
With so many hair loss shampoos using harsh chemicals and other ingredients our eco-friendly shampoo is a great alternative that is gentle on your scalp while stimulating hair growth.
posted in Sebum Shampoo
If you suffer from greasy or oily hair there is a good change that the amount of sebum on your scalp is high. This naturally occurring product in the scalp helps to protect the hair follicles. However it can also create a block or plug for new hair growth. If your hair is already thinning then this tough substance in your scalp can prevent new hair follicles from emerging easily.
Sebum can be produced in greater amount due to stress, hormonal imbalance, pollution, illness and menopause. If your hair is naturally oily then a strong sebum control shampoo will also help to control your oily hair.
An effective sebum control shampoo will help clean out the sebum in the scalp and restore a natural balance to your scalp and hair. Many sebum control shampoos used specific chemicals to try and reduce sebum build up. Margo Hair Alive is an all natural herbal sebum shampoo. Margo’s relies on natural ingredients to control and balance the production of sebum in the scalp. This is a much more gentle and natural method of sebum control.
For an herbal remedy for oil hair and one that provides control over sebum build up try our Herbal hair loss shampoo and conditioner for sixty days. The results will amaze you and you will be happy to know you are not using harsh chemical with this all natural herbal treatment.
There has been a lot of dialogue online about natural hair loss treatments that you can try at home. Many involved home recipes or herbal hair growth treatment you can use to try and combat hair loss. And of course hair loss occurs for a number of reasons which may include vitamin deficiencies, menopause, thyroid problems, skin conditions and stress. Obviously many of these do not have a quick fix but for others there are ingredients that work. Here is a short overview of some of the things to look for in addition to a natural hair growth treatment.
Iron: Often in women the daily requirement for iron is not met. Being Iron deficient can cause hair loss as Anemia, when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin, occurs. As you know Iron is a key element in the hemoglobin molecule. If you become Anemic not enough red blood will flow through the scalp and can cause subsequent hair loss. If you think this may be one of the causes go see a doctor for a blood test and learn more about foods with high levels of iron or learn about iron supplements.
Protein: Getting required levels of protein for some people can be hard if they are not meat lovers. Protein is important for strengthening hair and promoting hair growth. Eating eggs, nuts, seeds, beans and more fish in a diet can help to improve the amount of protein available for healthy hair growth.
Reduce your stress: It is a key factor to health and has many benefits. Often reducing stress involved taking time for yourself and focusing on your needs as an extension of work and family duties. Exercise is of course a key stress buster but also consider soaking in an Epsom salts bath. The magnesium in the Epsom salts helps rejuvenate your stress defense as it is absorbed through the skin. It helps with enzyme activity, reducing inflammation, improving nerve function and the absorption of nutrients and flushing toxins from your system.
Natural oils and herbs can also help stimulate and clean the scalp and improve the conditions present. Some key ingredient in Margo’s Hair Alive include minerals and natural ingredients that do just that. There are few Herbal hair growth treatments on the market that have the blend of rosemary, bladder wrack, capsicum, witches broom and stinging nettle found in Margo’s herbal hair growth treatment. These work together to clean the scalp of sebum, condition the hair and stimulate and nourish the scalp for better hair growth.

Hair Loss Scalp Treatment with Margo Alive
While you may know that hair loss in men and women can be the result of genetics and illness, did you also know that hair loss can be reduced significantly with a proven hair loss scalp treatment.
The scalp is a complex system that has many factors affecting the growth of hair. Some of these are internal conditions like blood flow to the scalp, the amount of natural oils and sebum a scalp produces or hormone imbalances in the body. Others are external factors like dying, mousses, hairsprays and styling gels and of course the type of shampoo you use. Many shampoos these days coat the hair to provide more body and volume. Of course if you are suffering from hair loss making the existing hair feel bigger can be beneficial but at the same time may compound the underlying condition that is causing the hair loss in the first place.
