When it comes to hair loss in men, the most common cause is from what is typically known as male pattern baldness. Part of this is due to genetics, while part is due to lifestyle choices. When it comes to natural remedies for hair loss, there is no shortage of oils and potions that are promoted as being the one and only secret cure, but are there any that are real?
The fact is that there are no known products, natural or otherwise that have been shown to substantially regrow hair. If there were, everyone would know about it and it would be known as the cure. It is highly likely that they will find a way to put an end to hair loss, but if that cure comes from the pharmaceutical industry, it is likely anyone taking it would need to do so for life. Much like the well-known products of today.
Some conditions other than those that have been mentioned already that can lead to balding are hormones, chemotherapy, crash dieting, stress and diabetes. This is not a complete list, but it is a number of the most common causes that promote or often lead to hair loss.
While nothing has been found to totally reverse hair loss, there are a number of home remedies that have been found very useful in slowing down the process so that anyone can at least keep what they have. Simple practices such as allowing the hair to air dry instead using a towel and rubbing the hair vigorously to dry it is highly recommended.
Saw Palmetto is an herb that has been found to help decrease the amount of testosterone that is turned into DHT by the body. This naturally produced hormone acts similar to how a weed spray works at killing weeds at the root. Of course most people do not consider their hair to be a weed, but it serves to demonstrate the damage this hormone does to hair growth. If using this herbs decreases how much of this hormone is produced, then it can help slow the process of hair loss.
Other natural remedies for hair loss are yucca, lavender and almond oil. The idea of these remedies is not to regrow hair, but instead to protect against the natural byproducts that cause hair loss to occur.
Very often it is common to not recognize that lifestyle can play a significant role in causing hair loss. If a person is a chronic worrier, or they fail to handle stress well, it can lead to hair loss. At the same time, those who have learned to control their levels of stress have been found to have much less hair loss.
Other conditions such as type 2 diabetes can often be controlled by making the necessary lifestyle changes. Whenever someone starts to do the things necessary to balance their blood sugar levels naturally, they often find that at the same time, their hair loss decreases. Keeping the body healthy and using natural products that often work with the body naturally is a good way to curb hair loss.
