Alternative Treatment for Hair Loss
February 19, 2016 admin 0 Comments
Sometimes people may reach a point when they have had it with a specific hair loss treatment that brings no result even after more than a year of use. Experts have advised that when one is under treatment for alopecia, another term for hair loss decease, he should give at least a year to see if a specific treatment is working or not. This is why alopecia is such a very serious problem. Even if discovery is at the early onset of the hair lessening, its treatment is always a long process because rehabilitating dead follicles can take time. But early detection is still the best, as always so that majority of the original hair can be preserved.
Due to the time length of treatments, some people may just want to give up unless they have the resources to opt for an expensive, but fast hair transplant process. For those who cannot afford the high amount of treatments, hope is not lost. Hair shampoo brands that contain nettle extracts have recently reached popularity in treating this decease. Nettle is a common plant also called as “stinging nettle which is long considered for its medicinal benefits. It is found to have anti-oxidation capacity for being a good source of vitamins A, C and E. In many cases, people who have used nettle shampoos were able to see positive reactions in their hair and scalp, not after a year, but it took only 6 months or even less.
It is best to know the myths about hair loss so it can be treated as early as possible. Most common, and probably a danger posing myth, is the belief that to lose 100 strands of hair in a day is normal. It is not. At most we should be losing only from 20 to 50 strands per day. If it is noticeably more than that then a check-up should already be considered for this may already be an early stage of alopecia. Another wrong belief is that work related stress and excessive wearing of hats can cause hair loss. There had been no found relation between work related stress and losing hair. In the same way, men who constantly wear hats will not lose hair because of it, it is always something hereditary or hormone related.
Transitioning from a drug related treatment to a natural alternative is not a hard decision to make. Natural ingredients are safe and will not cause any side effects. Even if nettle may cause an allergic reaction in its raw form, laboratory processed extracts have been removed of its allergens. So if you are ready to change to a new hair loss treatment that promises not just safety but quick results, then switching to using a nettle shampoo is your best choice.
You also need to get the right nutrients into your body in order to avoid baldness. Magnesium, zinc, biotin, vitamin B, and even vitamin E are all proven nutrients that stimulate hair growth.
Last but no least we talked about the hormone DHT being one of the leading causes of hair loss. An alternative treatment for fighting this off without risking your health is to make saw palmetto a part of your diet.
Saw palmetto is an herb that works to block the production of DHT in your body by way of an enzyme called 5 alpha-reductase. Taking this herb everyday just like you would any vitamin is an excellent alternative treatment for hair loss.
