If you are having the hair loss problem you may be seeking a solution that will help you stop the loss without the expense and risk of a medical solution.
Many of the modern chemicals like Rogaine and Propecia which are now available had been shown to be effective, but many hair loss sufferers are reluctant to take the risk of the possible side effects of an ongoing prescription treatment.
Surgery is always an option, transplanting hair follicles from one part of your body to your head in hopes that they will augment the hair that you have left. These have also been effective, but are expensive, painful, and take a long time to take hold, during which you’re appearance is impacted yet again. And since the hairs on your head have a different texture and color than hairs located in other areas, the end result is often not as lustrous as one could have hoped.
For many, the risks, expense, discomfort and outcome of these options make them more of a last resort. Many are looking for a more natural, less invasive solution to the problem of hair loss. Perhaps you are one of those people.
The natural way:
While we support and often recommend many of the medical treatments for hair loss that are commercially available, we also understand that there are other ways to address the problem and one person’s solution may not suit everybody facing the same decisions.
There are many ways that you can employ to help reduce and, in some cases, reverse your hair loss without medical intervention.
Why are you losing your hair?
To determine which method of hair loss treatment is right for you, you need to examine the underlying causes of the problem. Some of the key elements include:
- Genetics: For some people, hair loss and pattern baldness are written in their chromosomes. These people are perhaps the best candidates for medical intervention, although some natural solutions may slow the process and improve the quality and appearance of the hair that you do naturally retain.
- Illness: Many diseases and conditions, including imbalance in the thyroid, can cause or promote baldness. Treating the underlying medial issue can help in many cases, but sometimes the damage is permanent and hair replacement may be the only option.
- General Health and Nutrition: Many people are not aware of this, but a bad diet and lack of exercise can negatively affect your hair and can cause or contribute to pattern baldness.
- Stress: Stress had been linked to cancer, heart disease, several mental disorders and yes, to baldness.
Many of the conditions above can be addressed by natural cures, including:
- Supplements: By changing your diet and including supplements that have been shown to promote hair growth and health, many people can improve their appearance without drugs or surgical procedures. Exercise, stress relieving techniques and other health promoting activities will also aid your existing hair to grow as thick and lustrous as possible.
- Topical Remedies: There are a number of lotions, creams and astringents that can help to promote hair growth. Everyone had blockages of the pores and follicles that prevent hair growth, but most people have enough healthy hair growth that this is not noticeable. For those with hair loss, making the way clear for every follicle is to your advantage.
