There are many ways — mostly traditional ones — for hair loss prevention. Below are some common naturopathic remedies you may try to bring back your mane’s healthy glow:
A simple scalp massage for a few minutes everyday can stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles as well as minimise hair loss in temporary hair loss conditions.
Another traditional Chinese way of rejuvenating the hair growth is Qi Gong. P (pronounced as Chi Kung) it is known to increase circulation to the scalp and face. An aromatherapy blend of six drops each of lavender and bay essential oils in a base of four ounces of either almond, soybean, or sesame oil massaged into the scalp and allowed to sit for 20 minutes has been used by aroma
therapists to stimulate the scalp.
Using herbs such as Saw Palmetto and Nettle have their own specific benefits among hair loss natural remedies. Saw Palmetto is known to target benign prostatic disease by lowering levels of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), which is a known cause of Androgenetic Alopecia . Saw palmetto is also an effective anti-androgen and acts as an effective treatment for hair loss prevention.
On the other hand, Nettle roots are rich in vitamins A and C, several key minerals and lipids that can be beneficial to the hair. Nettle Root Extract has been used successfully in Europe as an inhibitor of 5-alpha reductase in treating Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).
Detoxifying the metabolic system often shows positive results in hair loss prevention. Our body is bombarded every day with many hazards such as chlorine, pesticides, second-hand smoke, exhaust fumes, certain cosmetics and germs in the air infiltrate the body and gravely affect our metabolic system. Thus, abstinence from alcohol, smoking, and recreational drugs alone are not sufficient to protect us from toxins.
