Hair Loss – Herbal Cures
Looking for some herbal cures for your hair loss? Well let’s examine some and see which ones you would like. There are quite a few out that you can choose from.
The first thing you need to determine is what is causing your hair loss. This will help you determine the proper treatment. In most cases, correcting the condition that is causing your hair loss will do the trick. For example, you could be losing your hair because of stress. Removing what is causing the stress will stop your hair loss and you will then re-grow the lost hair.
But if your hair loss is because of male pattern baldness (MPB) or female pattern baldness (FPB), which is a genetic condition, then we need to find a remedy that will stop the hair loss and re-grow the hair you have lost.
The main thing we want to look for is a remedy that will stop DHT (dihydrotestosterone) or the hormones, testosterone and 5 alpha reductase, which develop DHT. This is because DHT attaches itself to the hair follicle, causing the hair to fall out and the follicle to die.
One thing I have found in my research is that if the herb will help men with an enlarged prostrate, and then it will help men and women with MPB or FPB.
Here are some home remedies I found:
Nettles –Studies done by German scientists has shown that nettles can reduce prostrate enlargement by reducing DHT. Reduction in DHT will help with stopping hair loss.
Saw Palmetto –Is one of the most popular herbal supplements used to help men with an enlarged prostrate and with MPB. It works in two ways. It blocks the 5 alpha reductase and it blocks the receptor sites that are needed to absorb DHT.
Pumpkin Seed Oil – This also blocks the 5 alpha reductase and prevents the formation of DHT.
These are a few of the herbs that have been shown to help men and women with MPB or FPB.
If you use one of these herbal remedies, you will have better results if you also use one of the Federal Drug Administration approve drugs. These drugs are Minoxidil and Propecia.
Minoxidil is a solution you rub on your scalp twice a day and is approved for both men and women. Meanwhile Propecia is a pill you take orally. It is not recommended for use by women, since it has been known to cause birth defects in babies.
