The Hair Loss Problem

Though humans certainly face plenty of problems on a day-to-day basis, one would be hard-pressed to find a condition that is more commonly-shared by individuals from all around the world than hair loss. Indeed, many experts believe it to be one of the most prevalent conditions in the world, and so it was only logical for them to start working on solutions to the problem.

It is widely-agreed upon, at least amongst experts, that surgery is the most effective way of fighting back against hair loss. To explain it as simply as possible, it consists of an operation during which stronger hair follicles from the back of your scalp are transplanted into the weaker areas on your head. Though it has the best success rate, it remains a surgical intervention, and as such a very stressful event for the human body. Before going for the home run, it would be advisable that you try at least one or two of the many remedies available for the condition, and what follows is a brief look at the most successful ones.

Playing with Supplements

The first remedy for hair loss that you should always try revolves around your diet. Just like any part of the body, the hair requires a certain amount of nutrients in order to grow strong and healthy. If you are experiencing hair loss, then there is a very good chance that your hair isn’t getting what it needs, and simply changing up what you eat can actually do the trick and help you solve the nefarious problem.

Vitamin C is a very powerful antioxidant and thus promotes blood circulation to your scalp, meaning it can stimulate the growth of your hair by ensuring the follicles remain healthy and active. As a matter of fact, vitamins A and E have also been observed to have a similar effect, so taking them as supplements would definitely help you. Zinc, biotin and iron also ought to be on your list of nutrients to take, particularly considering the first two were linked to strong hair growth, and a lack of the last one linked to hair loss.

Without going into too many details, 5 alpha reductase is a hormone that is known to inhibit hair growth, and there are certain dietary supplements you can take to inhibit it. These include nettle (also known as urtica dioica) and pygeum africanum, which are especially effective when taken in combination with each other.

Home Remedies

For practically every single illness out there you are going to find dozens of home remedies that can potentially solve the problem, and the situation is no different when hair loss is concerned. There are plenty of creams and tonics you can apply to your scalp, such as arnica in the form of an ointment, saw palmetto gel, sage extract, and safflower oil. Try them out one by one, and if they do not work, rest assured there are dozens more (albeit less reputable) options left for you to try.

If you are feeling a bit adventurous or don’t have too much money to spare, then you can try some of the simpler remedies available, including:

• Rubbing the affected parts of your head with onions, and then pouring a bit of honey on them.
• Massaging coconut milk into your entire scalp so that it reaches the roots of your hair, helping to feed and grow them. You can make your own milk by simply grinding coconut shavings and squeezing them.
• An ointment made from mustard oil and henna leaves, effective at stimulating the actual growth of your hair. It is very easy to prepare, as it only requires you to boil about 250ml of the oil, gradually add 60mg of grinded henna leaves until they are burnt away, and then passing the liquid through a filter.
• Drinking about half a liter of spinach juice combined with lettuce will fill your body with dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and 5 alpha reductase inhibitors, effectively slowing down the hair loss process to a crawl.

All About the Relaxation

The connection between the mind and the body has been proven time and time again through a number of scientific experiments, and so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that stress has been identified as one of the leading causes of hair loss. Fortunately, relaxation is one of the things humans do best, and there are plenty of different options to help you cope with the pressures of daily life. Naturally, you cannot expect every single method to be effective for you, so it may take a bit of trial and error before finally figuring out the best way for you to relax.

For starters, there are plenty of classes and programs centered around relaxation techniques, with the most well-known ones being yoga and tai chi. Even if things will seem a bit complicated for you at the beginning, eventually all the movements will become second-nature, not to mention that what you will learn may very well lead you to practice meditation, the most relaxing mental exercise there is.

There are countless alternative relaxation therapy methods for you to try out, including sound therapy, aromatherapy, hypnotherapy, biofeedback, visualization, progressive muscle relaxation, and many more. You should take the time to research what each one of them has to offer and maybe give a few of them a shot before deciding which one you like best. They all allow you to achieve a Zen state of mind in their specific ways, and the one most effective for you will depend on your particular mindset and situation.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy may very well be one of the most significant medical advances in the past few years, for it could potentially serve as the base for curing a number of nefarious diseases that have claimed millions upon millions of lives. It took very little time for people to try and use it as a hair loss remedy, and very soon (by 2014 or 2015 at the latest) scientists expect to be able to defeat hair loss through hair cloning, also known as hair multiplication. Just to reiterate that statement, we are closer than we ever were to finding a cure to hair loss, and chances are it will work for everyone. If all other hair loss remedies have indeed failed you, then try and muster up the patience to wait a bit more before undergoing surgery… the longed-for solution is almost within our grasp.
