@fify-- I don't know about hair loss, but emu oil makes hair grow faster.
I use emu oil as a hair mask several times a week. I massage it into my scalp and hair and leave it on for at least several hours before I wash it off. I had a difficult time growing my hair before I tried this remedy. My hair just would not grow and I had a lot of damage and split ends. Now, my hair is growing at a normal rate and it is much healthier.
Just as the article said, I think that the fatty acids in emu oil nourish hair from the roots. It really is a wonderful remedy and I'm glad I discovered it.
