The purpose of this study is to discover the effect of scalp manual technic using aroma oil on the scalp and hair, and to contribute to the prevention of hair loss and the improvement of scalp health. The study was conducted on 21 women who reside in the Busan and Gyeongnam areas. Seven women were in the AM-Group (Aroma Manual Technic Group)who received manual technic using aroma oil, seven in the M-Group (Manual Technic Group) who received manual technic only, and seven were in the CG (Control Group) with no action taken. The subjects were measured at the top,front, and back using a scalp diagnosis machine (HMD scalp diagnosis system, Borntech, Korea) before the experiment,four and eight weeks after the experiment. The hair density measurement showed that the M-Group had an average of 8%more density after the experiment compared to before the experiment, while the AM-Group showed a statistically significant average increase of 12% compared to before the experiment (p⁄.01). The hair thickness measurement showed that the M-Group had an average increase of 9% compared to before the experiment (p⁄.01). The AM-Group showed a 30% increase compared to before the experiment (p⁄.001). In the scalp condition, the M-Group showed a 38.1%improvement compared to before the experiment while the AM-Group showed a 52.4% improvement, showing a clearer scalp tone. Therefore, the treatment of scalp manual technic using aroma oil has potential effect to improve scalp conditions and prevent or manage hair loss in young people.
