Just Natural Bald Spot Treatment: What is it?
This is an extremely well-reviewed hair loss treatment specifically for bald spots on your head.
The folks at Just Naturals/Just Nutritive (same company, different names!) make some pretty incredible products from all natural ingredients, with no parabens, sulfates, or artificial colors/fragrances/stabilizers or other chemical crapola.
I’m a huge fan of all of their products that I’ve tried, as you can see from some of my other reviews.
All of the Just Natural/Just Nutritive hair care products are made in the US from quality plant-based ingredients sourced from around the world.
Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside the bald spot cream…

I put comments in italics next to the “chemical”-like ingredients to explain what they do. I don’t see any red flag ingredients, but I do see a plethora of awesome stuff that’s known to help with hair regrowth.
From clary sage, to peppermint, to rosehips, to nettles – this treatment seems to have thrown the kitchen sink at those pesky bald spots.
How does this stuff fix bald spots?
Let’s shine the spotlight on a few…
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, stinging nettle has been used for centuries for various medicinal purposes, including: arthritis and joint pain; muscle strain; tendinitis; anemia; gout; eczema; hay fever; insect bites, and enlarged prostate. The root of the stinging nettle plant is also recommended by some herbalists to prevent hair loss.
It’s also a powerful DHT blocker (DHT is the main culprit of hair loss for most of us – a hormonal byproduct of testosterone that messes with our androgen receptors on our scalp)
Rosehip oil has many revitalizing components such as Vitamins C and A, which stimulate collagen production. Rosehip oil for hair growth can also help prevent the damaging effects of oxidants that affect our scalps and hair.
The essential fatty acids contained in rosehip oil for hair loss aid in the renewal and healing of hair follicles, which are essential for promoting hair growth. The fatty acids found in rosehips not only deeply moisturize the skin under the hair, but also increase the hair’s elasticity and health.
Carrot Seed Oil:
The antioxidants contained in carrot seed oil are vitamin A and vitamin E. A very important chemical compound that can be found in this essential oil is carotol. It has significant antibacterial and antifungal effects.
Carrot oil infiltrates the hair roots, the scalp and the hair follicles, and nourish hair with vitamins and antioxidants.
How to Use Just Naturals Bald Spot Treatment:
Dab a small amount of the cream and massage it directly into the bald spot.
Use it as a leave-in cream. – do not rinse out. To work, this needs prolonged contact with your scalp all day. Apply 2-3 times a day.
The folks at Just Naturals suggest that you pair their Bald Spot Cream with the Vinegar Nutritive Rinse Cleanser along with this product. This vinegar will help remove buildup that may accumulate on the scalp. Once the scalp is cleansed and free of buildup, the product will be able to penetrate the scalp and become more effective.
I’d say try that out if you have any concerns about your hair and scalp becoming greasy or oily while using the bald spot cream 2-3 times a day. I’d also recommend that you consider making your own Rosemary Vinegar if you need to cut corners and save money.
Who Can Use This Bald Spot Cream?
Men and women can both use this product. This is a unisex product with a smell that doesn’t skew too masculine or feminine.
It’s a choice for people with hair loss from all different causes – hormonal, stress, trichotillomania, alopecia, medication side effect, hair loss due to scalp trauma, post-partum hair loss, or hair loss during menopause.
Since I’m focused on women’s hair loss here, and bald spot treatment for women, I’ll be focused on the feedback specifically from female users of this product.
Just Natural Bald Spot Treatment Reviews
What do actual users say?
Generally speaking, people love this stuff.
They say it takes time to work, but that the difference is noticeable to them and others after a few weeks or a month.
For bald spots, you can see right away if hair is growing back in! That’s the beauty of something intended to just treat them – you’ll know if it’s working or not. It’s harder to tell for areas that are merely thinned, or all-over thinned hair loss. A bald spot is unambiguous.
Here’s a representative positive review from someone using this cream:
Overall: Use this Stuff and Fix Your Bald Spot!
I recommend buying this straight from Just Naturals because they usually have coupons you can use for a discount. I’m not a huge fan of paying full price. I also really like their website, because it’s so well organized and easy to navigate.
They do offer a 30-day money back guarantee, so there is time to try this product and see if it’s starting to make an impact on your bald spot.
However, you can also purchase this product on Amazon.com, so it’s totally up to you!
Any experiences using this bald spot cream, or any other? I’d love to hear about it! Leave a comment with your concerns, questions, thoughts, ideas, musings, random streams of consciousness, or just plain say “HI!”.
Yours in future full heads of hair,
