Natural Treatment To Help Hair Loss

baldingIt is normal to shed hair each day but sometimes hair loss may be exacerbated by stress, a poor diet or illness. Hereditary hair loss is known as alopecia, which affects men more often than women. Many men turn to cures that promise amazing results in preventing hair loss, but usually these are nothing more than expensive scams that can damage health over time. There are, however, homeopathic and herbal treatments available that can slow down hair loss and encourage hair to grow naturally.

Causes of Hair Loss and Baldness

Baldness, or alopecia, is total or partial loss of hair. This is often a hereditary condition that occurs more frequently in males than females because it depends on the influence of the male hormone testosterone. Pattern baldness is the most prevalent instance of hair loss in men.

Sudden, temporary hair loss sometimes occurs as a result of stress, flu, pneumonia or typhoid fever. Temporary baldness can also be the result of exposure to nuclear radiation, X-rays, anti-cancer drugs or a severe nutritional deficiency.

Natural Treatments for Hair Loss

Herbal and homeopathic treatments can stimulate and encourage hair growth, as well as support good blood circulation, hormonal balance and correct thyroid functioning.

Homeopathic – A homeopath may prescribe Aurum metallicum for an individual who is losing hair and also suffers from headaches and/or boils on the scalp. Phosphoric acid is generally recommended for hair loss following grief and exhaustion. Selenium is said to help an individual with a painful scalp combined with loss of hair. Visit a qualified homeopath to get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Herbal – An herbalist / Naturopath may suggest a daily intake of rosemary tea or nettle tea. Equisetum arvense (horsetail), Avena sativa (oats) and Echinacea are effective in combating hair loss and nourishing hair follicles.  The herb Saw Palmato is also known to reduce hair loss in men and women. Visit your health food store and ask an expert about some of these formulas.

Aromatherapy – A scalp massage with essential oils such as fenugreek, ginger, cypress, lavender and rosemary are suggested to help with hair loss. Blend 2 drops of essential oil to 15ml (1 tablespoon) of carrier oil, such as jojoba, hemp seed or rosehip.

Vitamins and Minerals – Vitamin B complex, Vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, zinc, choline and inositol should be taken regularly by men whose hair is receding or falling out.

Cutting down on alcohol and sugar and eliminating nutritionally deficient junk food from the diet can slow down hair loss. Stick to a natural, healthy diet that includes good fats, protein, whole grains and plenty of organically grown fruits and vegetables in order to prevent hair loss or thinning hair.

    Dandruff is one of the cause of hair loss. So it's better to keep the hair free from dandruff. Suggestion in the post for increasing intake of diet with rich in vitamins and zinc is really beneficial for healthy hair. From homeremediesfinder, I have got that massaging with lemon juice before 10 minutes of hair wash is very effective for keeping the hair healthy and free from dandruff.
