Herbal hair loss remedies for external use.

by Richard Mitchell

In a separate article in this series we looked at some of the most popular herbal hair loss remedies for ingestion. Here well expand that theme to include some potentially useful herbal remedies for external use.

Aloe vera – some Indian tribes of Mexico attribute their thick, healthy hair to regular use of aloe vera gel which they rub into the scalp and hair each night. Herbalists believe that the herb activates the production of nitric oxide and contains an enzyme known as superoxide dismutane. Some experts feel that these two substances combine to stimulate hair regrowth in those suffering from male pattern type baldness.

Onion (Allium cepa) – this has a high sulfur content that is believed to have hair-healing properties. Some herbalists believe that rubbing the scalp with half an onion before washing hair encourages hair growth.

Red pepper (Capiscum) – a popular folk remedy that involves the application of a red pepper poultice to the scalp to act as a skin irritant. This draws blood and nutrients to the scalp and encourages the release of histimines to stimulate cell division and hair regrowth.

Safflower oil (Carthamus tinctorious) – Eastern health practitioners believe that safflower oil applied to the scalp acts as a vasolidator that dilates blood vessels. This allows more blood to deliver nutrients to the hair follicle thus creating an environment conducive to hair regrowth.

Hair loss solutions guide and how to prevent baldness from happend to you

Hair loss solutions guide and how to prevent baldness from happend to you

by Amy-Jo Strutt

Coming to the realization that you are losing your hair and you are starting to go bald can be devastating. Most people think it only happens to men, when in fact, a large percentage of women lose their hair as well. The good news is there are a number of great hair loss solutions and remedies that can help the fight against thinning hair and baldness. Hair loss in most cases is caused by genetics and it is the hardest to combat. But if your hair loss is not genetically related, it may be a result of poor diet, stress, alopecia or lacking certain vitamins and minerals. If that’s the case, immediate actions can be taken to stop your hair loss.

When you look in the mirror, you will likely notice your hair thinning at the top of your head and possibly at the hairline. Most often, male pattern baldness starts with a receding hairline and it just continues right across the top of the head until there is only a fringe of hair around the head. Unfortunately there is no drug available to cure or stop male pattern baldness. The most popular form of hair loss solution in this case is hair transplant. Most of us remember those awful hair plugs, well things have gotten a whole lot better since then. Technology has made some remarkable advancements and hair transplant surgery has improved dramatically over the past 10 years. It is a hair loss remedy that both men and women are using.

The downside of good hair transplants is that they can be expensive. You can opt for a less expensive alternative which would be a hair piece or toupee. If transplant surgery isn’t for you, speak to your doctor about Rogaine which has been proven to start hair regrowth. You apply Rogaine directly the scalp. You will see new hair growth but it may take up to 6 months before it happens. It is important you speak to your doctor about potential side effects and how long new hair growth lasts once you stop applying the cream. Hair loss can be embarrassing, but today, you have more options than ever before.

Hair Loss Remedies Around the Globe

Hair Loss Remedies Around the Globe

by Raj Pandey

In our culture, hair loss remedies come with hefty price tags, painful surgical procedures, ingestion of tablets, and the application of creams. It seems like a whole lots of work just to keep a person happy with their physical appearance. Doesnt it? But men and women have shed hair since the beginning of time. Being bald isnt a new concept. It makes one wonder what remedies other cultures use to prevent and interrupt the balding process.

Take a glance at some of these historic remedies. They may seem ridiculous to us-just like some of our remedies will seem laughable to someone in the year 2070.

In Victorian America

Can you picture yourself applying cologne, spirit of camphor, and a pigment of cantharides to the roots of your hair each night? This is one concoction that was used to treat hair loss. An additional treatment, was the vigorous brushing of hair. Stiff brushes were used to promote soft and shiny hair, while soft hair brushes were believed to promote the growth of hair.

In Ancient Egypt

Oh, boy! The ancient Egyptians had some remedies for hair loss that may appear pretty wacky to us reader. For instance, the Egyptians believed that the application of chopped lettuce (to the bald area) would promote hair growth. Why lettuce, you may ask. Well, to the Egyptians, lettuce was associated with virility.

Another remedy the Egyptians swore by was the application of castor oil to the scalp. Because the castor oil didnt exactly smell pleasant, they often mixed this with sweet almond oil to create a soothing aroma.

In India

How far would you go to re-grow your hair? Indians once believed that by boiling sage leaves in coconut oil, that the liquids residue (once applied to hair) would cure balding.

In The Amazon

A banana a day keeps the surgeon away? Get this one: In the South American rainforests, the Taiwano Indians believed that hair loss and scalp problems could be treated with the heated extracts of bananas.

Modern Day North America

As you can see, weve come a long way. Or have we? Today our hair loss remedies promise consumers the moon. But are we ever happy with results? If you have a genetic disposition for balding early in life, its your choice to try pills, products, and surgical procedures. But ask yourself: will these treatments make you happy? Can one physical alteration make you feel young and virile?

Men that do not have genetic balding traits; who are experiencing hair loss; should take the following into consideration:

? Tight hats, ponytails, and braids promote receding hairlines and thinning hair. ? Bathe and groom yourself regularly. ? Excessive worrying and stress can cause redundant shedding of hair and balding. ? Healthy diets and a clean lifestyle can reduce the risk of balding.
