The air here has been so dry that my scalp has become the epicenter of sere. Besides the annoyance of static electricity, I can feel the dryness of my skin to a point of alarm. I asked my doctor (Dr. Alejandro Gil) if he knew of a solution. He suggested the oil of the Zapote fruit; Zapotol shampoo, conditioner and oil treatment. I was able to find it at the Liborio Market; the shampoo came with a free bottle of the oil, which should be applied to the scalp, left on for 30 minutes, then massaged in before shampooing out. It smells like marzipan (a personal favorite.) I used it tonight for the first time, and my scalp feels more hydrated already. Allie highly approves of the product as well.
