Herbs and Spices That Help Prevent Hair Loss

Did you know that herbs and spices can also be used in preventing hair loss? This is why it could be right time for you to hit the kitchen first and try out these simple and natural solutions to avoid excessive hair shedding.

Back in the days when high-end medications are simply but a dream, people use herbs and spices to remedy the problem. For those of you today who may be fed up with modern medicine not working, it might be time to stick our noses to herbal solutions and treatments.

Oregano

Thanks to the thymo and carvacrol content in oregano, this particular herb can be used as a natural remedy to dandruff. It can also help untangle hair preventing breakage as you comb.

You simply prepare this by simmering half a cup of fresh oregano leaves to one cup water. Once it is cooled, pour it into a spray bottle for easier application. Aside from improving the strength of your hair this also encourages better shine.

Oregano may also have a tendency to dry hair out, but you can buffer this by adding vanilla extract.

Rosemary

You can use rosemary to aid in hair growth while slowing down or preventing hair thinning. All you need to do is boil rosemary leaves into a tea using water or apple cider vinegar. This is actually a method used in the Mediterranean region, and it can be used as a good hair wash that can prevent hair graying.

You can also use carrier oils like coconut, olive or jojoba, and infuse rosemary leaves and use it as a leave on hair oil.

Gingko Biloba

This particular herb is popular for improving blood circulation. As the blood flow in the scalp area improves, so does hair growth. This keeps the hair follicle strong as the blood feeds it with the necessary nutrients.

Sage

This herb can prevent baldness because it has properties that help in strengthening the hair. It is advised that you apply your hair with clary sage oil in between your shampoos to give you stronger hair. In addition to that, it might even darken the shade of graying strands.

Thym

Did you know that thyme actually contains the most iron among all the other herbs and spices? Just one tablespoon will already provide your hair with 5 grams of nutrients to keep it strong because of its healthy iron content. Aside from adding it to food thyme also does its anti-hair loss duties when it is massaged directly on the scalp.

Cedar

The essential oil that can be made out of this herb is useful because of its antiseptic action. You can regularly massage cedar oil infused with either almond or laurel oil to the scalp and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing.

Saw Palmetto

This herb prevents hair loss because it found to disrupt the formation of DHT or dihydrotestosterone, the hormone responsible for hair loss. Men who suffer from mild to moderate baldness may benefit from this, however further studies needs to be made for this claim.

The History of Scalp Massage

Scalp massage is an Indian treatment as old as the hills. So ancient is it and so positive its results, that it’s been exalted to the status of a tradition in most households. Still done on a weekly basis, it is part of many sacred rituals and the way in which a festival day is begun almost in every home across the subcontinent.

This massage is proven for its goodness in improving blood circulation and relieving stress in adults, while enabling concentration and enhancing memory power in school-going children. It is also especially recommended for hair re-growth in the case of cancer patients.

In the first text on Ayurveda written over 2,000 years ago, Ayurvedic physician Charaka wrote, “One who applies oil on his head regularly does not suffer from headaches, baldness, graying of hair, nor does his hair fall. Strength of his head and forehead is especially enhanced; his hair becomes black, long and deep-rooted; his sense organs work properly; the skin of his face becomes brightened; applying oil on the head produces sound sleep and happiness.”

Scalp massage has been a part of Indian culture since ancient times. There has been much research as to the history of this treatment. In addition to being a historical part of Indian culture, it has become a staple around the world as well. Not long ago, it was adopted as part of a luxurious hair treatment in hair salons and spas all over the United States, as well as most other countries.

In ancient days, Indian mothers would engage in weekly scalp massage for their children and other members of the family. The belief was that this practice could help improve memory and concentration, which, in turn, could make a more productive child in school and at home. Indian mothers would often strategically perform this treatment every Sunday, hoping that their children would be able to focus better on their studies during the school week to come. Improvement of memory power was one of the most important and obvious reasons for Indian mothers to engage in this weekly routine.

In more recent times, new advantages of scalp massage have been discovered. In addition to the hopes of improving memory, theories of benefits to general health and wellness have emerged. These medical advantages include reliving migraines, sleeping disorders, stress and stress-related symptoms. While not completely proven to be true for everyone, some cancer patients and medical professional believe that scalp massage helps with hair re-growth after chemotherapy-related hair loss.

Hair stylists, hair care professionals and salons worldwide also believe that scalp massage has its advantages. They believe that by offering theses relaxing and enjoyable massages to clients, their clients’ hair will be more nourished and conditioned. Like some medical professionals, hair care professionals also believe that scalp massages can stimulate hair growth. Most people will admit to a scalp massage being their favorite part of the hair treatment, as they find it to be relaxing, soothing and calming. Regardless of your belief in the ancient theories behind scalp massage, it may still be a good practice to employ, if only to de-stress after a tough day at work!

Itchy Scalp and Thinning Hair? Tips and Advice That May Help

The other day, I received similar emails from both a man and a woman who described having an itchy, tingling scalp with hair loss that seemed accelerated and was accompanied by thinning.  Both wanted to know what they could do about their scalp (which hopefully would also help the hair loss.)  In truth, there are several reasons that these two things occur side by side or simultaneously.  I will discuss these things in the following article.

The Most Common Cause For An Itching Scalp Accompanied By Shedding Or Thinning Hair: By far, the most common cause for this condition is an over reaction to your scalp to the androgens that are on it.  Now, this may be a sudden onset of symptoms because either your hormones are changing, the androgens are increasing, or your sensitivity to the androgens is increasing.  All three of these things generally occur with age.   And, these things tie into genetic or androgenic hair loss, meaning your standard, run of the mill, patterned baldness or thinning.  Sometimes this is patterned (typically with more loss happening at the temples, crown, or top) or it can be more diffuse (especially in women.)

The treatments depend on how aggressive you wan to be and how bad the thinning really is.  Some people will only seek relief for the itching.  Tea tree oil is good for this as are anti inflammatory shampoos.  If you want to address the thinning, you will need to address the sensitivity at the follicles. However with that said, you will want to try things gradually and you should be very careful about any treatment that can affect or change your hormones, as hormonal vulnerability might just be what caused this. I often recommend starting with things that are placed on your scalp rather than going internally and taking things into your body.

Itchy Scalp Accompanied By Telogen Effluvium (TE):  Sometimes, for whatever reason, your follicles will go through a shed or a sort of spring cleaning.  This can occur, again, because of changing hormones, changing medications, illness, stress, and many other things.  Often, you will get shedding that will sort of run its course, and hopefully, end after a few months.  In the meantime though, since so many follicles are being shed out at one time, you can get a tight, itchy, or painful scalp while this is happening.

Now, sometimes, the thinning is caused as a result of the shedding, but sometimes miniaturization takes place. What this means is that your hair is growing back thinner and finer as the result of being affected by the androgens that I discussed above.  If your regrowth looks fine though, you’re typically over the TE hump and can just focus on reducing the inflammation of your scalp.

Other Considerations: Dermatological Conditions Of The Scalp: Sometimes, your scalp itches or looks angry because it’s having some reaction due to injury, allergic reactions, yeast, infections, or products that are injuring it.  This is typically something that your dermatologist can pinpoint with a sun lamp.  Sometimes, you will have reactions on other parts of your body other than the scalp.  You might see sores or bumps on the scalp.  Ask yourself if you have changed products or regimens. Thinning with these conditions is somewhat rare, although I have heard of this happening.

Black Cohosh and Hair Growth – Herbal Treatment For Hair Loss in Women

Black cohosh and hair growth have been in correlation for years, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that the relationship was officially recognized. It has always been used as a herbal remedy for women suffering from menopause as it regulates estrogen hormone levels. Now it has been used in very successful natural hair restoration treatments for women.

Black cohosh is a plant that grows in North America and Canada. Its root is very dark, thick and knotted, and it is this that which is used as a herbal remedy for many different ailments, including menopause. Menopause can cause a reduction in the production of estrogen – the very hormone that makes women women. This female sex hormone has many important roles that give women their female characteristics including preventing the growth of body hair and promoting head hair growth. It acts as a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor, blocking the production of DHT from testosterone, which causes hair follicles to die.

Women going through menopause tend to notice that one of the side effects is hair loss. This is because the level of estrogen produced can drop dramatically, causing the level of DHT to enter the hair follicles, blocking hair growth. Black cohosh, with its ability to regulate estrogen levels so they don’t reduce, is therefore an excellent natural hair loss remedy for women.

Hair loss in women can be prevented with use of black cohosh, if going through menopause. It is believed that with it balancing the level of estrogen produced, DHT levels should remain restricted and controlled enough to stop clogging the hair follicles. Black cohosh and hair growth appear to therefore go hand-in-hand, and as a result has been included as a core ingredient in many hair growth products and natural hair loss treatments.

How To Take Black Cohosh

This plant contains vitamins A and B5, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, lipids and resin. Not only is it found in natural hair loss treatments, but is also available as a supplement in capsule or tincture form.

How to Stop Hair Loss and Grow New Hair

Throughout history, hair has been considered a symbol of beauty (for women) and virility (for men)…

The lifespan of a strand of hair is about 5 years on average yet every day you’re losing between 60 to 100 strands of hair. That might not seem like much but what can you do when the effects are visible with the naked eye?

Hair loss isn’t just a cosmetic issue. It’s one of health and well being. Chinese and Tibetan medicine texts state that you can tell a person’s general state of health by looking at his or her hair, skin and nails.

How do you improve the quality of your hair and your overall health?

Well, it’s important to know that hair grows from follicles within the skin of your head… and over 90% of your hair is basically dead protein and it’s very rich in sulfur.

Sulfur is the fifth to ninth most abundant mineral in the body and it’s widely spread in the atmosphere, especially in rain water… but because we’re eating plants grown in green houses and not wild foods, over the years our bodies have gotten sulfur deficient.

If you want to add some extra sulfur to your diet you should eat more high protein superfoods like hemp seed, been pollen, goji berries and algae like spirulina, chlorella, etc

The best way however is to add a few grams of organic sulfur, also called MSM to your diet everyday. MSM is an almost magical component that also helps build strong bones and teeth, clear your complexion, increase flexibility and mobility, ease joint pain and make your eyes more radiant and glowing. You can get it at the at the SacredEden.com health food store.

Another important mineral for your hair is Silica. This is also found in nails, bones and muscles. The best sources of silica are dark greens leafy vegetables… From medicinal plants like nettle and horsetail to the more conventional kale and spinach, greens will do wonders for your health.

Vitamin C also play an important role… You can get vitamin C almost everywhere nowadays from pharmacies to health food stores. Make sure you supplement with at least half a gram twice a day.

In Chinese medicine hair loss is connected with loss of Jing. Jing translates as “essence” and is one of the 3 treasures… a substance that should be guarded and not wasted.

Loss of Jing essence causes hair loss, lower back pain, joint pain etc… Chinese medicine lists a few plants that can restore Jing essence like schizandra berry, morinda root, noni fruits, etc

Fortunately, we have discovered an even more powerful sacred plant that can restore this Jing essence, increase your energy, cleanse the blood and help gray hair turn back to black. It’s called “Zhi Shou Wu” or “Ho Shou Wu” which translates to “Mr. Ho’s Black Hair”.

The legends say that Zhi Shou Wu turned Mr. Ho’s hair from gray to black at the age of 58, helped him father several children and restored his youthful appearance. He lived to be 130!

Steroid Treatments For Your Hair Loss Problems

Hair loss is a problem that affects both men and women. The causes are varied but the number one reason is genetics. Hair loss, especially male pattern baldness is attributed to hereditary factors. Stress is also a great inducer of hair loss and so is malnutrition.

Medications containing amphetamines and lithium (used to treat bipolar disorder) can also be responsible for hair loss. Constant hairstyling and chemical treatment of your hair can result to brittle hair and eventual hair loss.

Other reasons are diseases such as trichotillomania, which is a psychological disorder compelling the person to nervously pull out his hair. Tinea capititis is a fungal infection that often results to scaling in the scalp and breakage of the hairs even before they grow out of the hair follicle.

Alopecia areata is another reason for hair loss, this is evident by the immediate loss of hair in patches in the scalp as well as the body and it can have a debilitating effect on your scalp. Although the hair follicles are not affected, it can take persons afflicted with this months or years before hair starts to grow.

Doctors recommend a lot of treatments for these diseases and one of the most effective is the use of steroids being injected directly to the scalp. However, they should only be in minimal dosages because there are known harmful side effects from going over the prescribed dose.

More importantly, this treatment is resorted only in cases of severe hair loss, such as in persons who suffer from alopecia areata, or for those who have lost approximately fifty percent of their hair.

Steroid injections are painful and since they can only be injected in small doses, they are required to be injected every four to six weeks. Oral steroids may also be taken, however they may offer a more prominent manifestation of side effects.

Topical steroids which can be massage into the scalp are also available. Steroid injections are also combined with other drugs such as minoxidil and anthralin to help speed up the hair growth process. Some of the side effects would include nausea, vomiting, headaches and scalp irritation.

If you are planning to use steroids to help treat hair loss, please consult your physician first if you qualify for such treatment. The injections would require a physician for administration and should not be experimented or done at home. Steroids are your last resort but you have to be well nourished as well and follow strict personal hygiene for you to have that thick and full hair again.

Types of Hair Salon Services

In decades past, hair salon services were mainly reserved for women, since they are typically more concerned about their appearance than men. Nowadays however, even men have become increasingly conscious about their personal grooming, thus such services also apply to men. There are different types of hair salon services, which are normally offered on the basis of individual preferences. Further, these services have increased over the years, such that most salons have become a one-stop shop for all forms of beauty care. In this article, different types of hair salon services have been discussed in detail.

The main services offered in hair salons are hair styling and coloring. Good hair styles can greatly enhance a persons entire look, thus most salons have hair stylists specifically for this purpose. There is a wide range of hair styles to choose from, which normally depend on various factors such as the shape of one’s face and hair length. It is therefore not just a matter of styling hair, but salon professionals also ensure that such styles are unique to each person. There are various aspects of hair styling such as braiding, relaxing or hair extensions. In the same way, coloring services are offered based on their suitability to specific people.

The other types of services offered in salons are make-up services. Most salons have make-up artists, whose job is to apply make up on their clients. In most cases, salons have make-up artists who are well-versed with the make-up requirements of different cultures. In some salons, it is possible to get accessories that are appropriate for a certain look, whose price is included in the overall price of the make up services. Other types of hair salon services are nail care and spa treatment services. With regard to nail care, people can get manicures and pedicures, in addition to nail polishing. At the same time, most salons have incorporated spa treatment services which include services such as body massage and waxing. Other facilities offered by salon spas are swimming pools and steam rooms, which are all aimed at enhancing one’s salon experience.

Skin care is another type of service offered in salons, whereby the choice of the skin care treatment is based on one’s skin type. Salons offer various skin care services such as facials, which are ideal for different types of skins. Other services provided by salons pertain to skin treatment, which normally involves treating certain skin conditions such as reducing blemishes or acne scars. Unlike skin care services, skin treatment requires specialized care, thus one should ensure that the services are offered by qualified skin care professionals.

The services offered by salons are not restricted to their individual clients. Salons also offer some of their services such as hair styling and make-up services during events such as weddings. Most salons have wedding packages, whereby make up services, hair styling and coloring is undertaken by one salon, in accordance with the overall theme of the wedding. With all the types of hair salon services available, it should not be too difficult to adopt and maintain a look that brings out the best in a person.

A lot of individuals wish to make their hair straight. However, there are numerous issues that restrict them from having their dream hair. These include the lack of time and tools to fix the hair. Because of these, a lot of women may experience lower self-esteem, anxiety, and stress.

One of the most popular hair tools used by individuals is a straightening brush.

When using hair straightening brush, there are numerous benefits women can obtain. However, there are also some down side to it. To know more about them, below are some of the pros and cons of using a hair brush straightener.

Advantages of using hair straightening brush

Temperature selection

One of the best benefits of making use of a straightening brush is you have different temperature selections. For soft and fine hair, you need to select between 170-190 degrees. For normal hair, select between 190-210 degrees. And, for thick hair, select between 210-230 degrees. With these options, you can easily make your hair straight.

No more “Chase Method”

Another benefit of using hair straightening brush is you do not need to use the “Chase Method.” It is the process by which you run a fine or moderate tooth comb through your hair simultaneously along with a flat iron.

Apart from that, making use of brush straighteners allow you to cover the entire head more rapidly than a flat iron.

Disadvantages of using hair straightening brush

Melting hair

When talking about the disadvantages of brush straighteners, you may also find some issues that may scare you. One of the most common disadvantage of using straightening brushes is it can melt hair. As mentioned above, hair brush straighteners have temperature selection. Choosing the wrong temperature may melt your hair.

Mechanical damage

Another disadvantage of using brush straighteners is mechanical damage. This issue rarely happens. However, in case this occurs, it can easily damage your hair since the tips of the bristles can snag on to the ends of the hair strands which may result in split ends. The best solution is to trim it.

By knowing all these, women are more aware on how to properly use hair brush straighteners. Click here for more.

Comparison in Using A Laser Hair Regrowth Machine and TRIOXINATOR in Hair Loss Treatment

Laser Hair Regrowth machine

It is operated on the known principle that a laser beam can stimulate the skin in order to enhance the appearance of hair. For this to happen, the wavelength of the beam needs to be chosen correctly for optimum performance.

The laser beam penetrates below the surface of the skin and causes a slight elevation of temperature. A laser beam is a very narrow light beam of very high intensity. In order to achieve the required stimulation over a big area, the unit must be moved very slowly over the skin.

Laser Hair Regrowth machine usually comes like a comb to make it possible for some of the laser beams to reach the skin when treating relatively thick existing hair.

TRIOXINATOR

Through a non-invasive cosmetic application of Enhanced TriOxi+, the TRIOXINATOR provides a non-medical self-help treatment for men and women who wish to reduce the signs of hair loss.

The TRIOXINATOR uses high voltage; high frequency pulses combined with controlled low frequency amplitude variations and are applied to 7 gas discharge tubes touching the skin. This causes a strong electrical field at the surface of the skin. The resulting electrical currents in the skin are well below the threshold of muscle stimulation and can therefore be safely classified as a gentle local stimulation and when combined with the proprietary Subtle Amplitude Modulation (SAM), the TRIOXINATOR creates the effect of a very gentle massage.

The electrostatic field and the frequencies involved have been specifically tailored for follicle stimulation. The short amplitude modulated high frequency pulses stimulate the skin in a way that increases the blood flow and the supply of nutrients to the follicles in which contributing greatly to reduce the appearance of hair loss. The process takes place inside the skin. Because of the high repetition rate of the pulses the unit can be moved over the surface of the skin at random.

TRIOXINATOR produces very small amount of ozone which neutralizes toxins and other substances on the surface of the skin. At the same time, it produces a gentle massaging effect. It is known that even normal head massage stimulates the follicles.

What does it feel like?

Each session feels like a gentle, finger-like touch that provides a relaxing and stimulating scalp massage while bathing the area in Enhanced TriOxi+. This experience is caused by the occurrence of minute electrical discharges between the surface of the glass and the skin. As soon as the glass tubes touch the skin the inside the tube is fully ignited and very short but very bright pulses of light are generated. The light consists of a mix of many colors mainly in the lower frequency spectrum. It is not laser light.

Below are the comparisons between the above 2 devices.

Target group

Both devices work for men and women

Side Effects

Both do not have side effects but people who use the TRIOXINATOR have been receiving positive responses including improvement of the skin, headaches, and sleep.

Effectiveness

TRIOXINATOR: 96% for stop hair fall out and 90% on reverse the sign of hair loss. Remarkable results can be expected with people who just start losing hair. Clients have noticed the signs of hair loss start to reverse within 2-3 weeks.

Laser Comb: In general, there are 3 categories of user experience: 45% of users will see positive results after 8 weeks of treatment. Another 45% will see benefits from weeks 10-16. The last 10% of users will begin to see subtle improvements after 16 weeks.

Safety

TRIOXINATOR: Meets regulatory safety standards. Even if children play with the unit it is very difficult to get harmed.

Laser Comb: There is potential risk to users (and children) who may inadvertently look into the laser beam, thereby potentially causing damage to the eyes.

Age Limit

TRIOXINATOR: NONE

Laser Comb: 18 and over (because of potentially damage to the eyes by looking into the laser beam)

Handle/Materials

TRIOXINATOR: Medical grade heavy duty plastic and silicone rubber.

Laser Comb: Standard manufacturing-used plastic

The 7 glass probes of TRIOXINATOR are arranged in a circle for maximum contact with the skin of the scalp to give fast and effective treatment. The probes can reach deep down and touch the skin surface totally without blocked by the existing hair. Together with its high repetition pulses, you can move the unit on your scalp at random but still give you a full performance. In contrast to the Laser Hair Regrowth machine, it generally only allows two electrodes to touch the skin of the scalp thus making stimulation rather tedious. Besides, the laser beam is a very narrow light beam; in order to achieve the required performance over a big area on your scalp, the unit must be moved very slowly over the skin.

To my point of view, this is one of the reasons why TRIOXINATOR would give a more steady and predictable result than the Laser Hair Regrowth machine. If the user is not following closely to the instruction, which is moving the machine slowly over the skin and make sure that every single inch of the scalp is touched by the electrodes of the comb, while using the Laser comb, the stimulation varies and result deviate.

There is also a safety issue that we need to pay attention to. Laser Hair Regrowth machine has potential risk to users in damaging the eyes if users inadvertently look into the laser beam. TRIOXINATOR meets regulatory safety standards. It meets all the legal requirements on emission of interference and safety as set out by the governments of the USA, Canada and the EU (Approval by CE, UL, CSA, FCC and RoHS). Even if children play with the unit, it is very difficult to get harmed.

TRIOXINATOR is a Canadian designed and made machine. It is moderately more expensive than the Laser device in the market. But the price difference is based on the additional costs TRIOXINATOR has been invested on the machine with medical grade plastic and silicone rubber. Hair loss is an issue that needs continuous attention. Therefore, the machine needs to be built to last for many years. Moreover, TRIOXINATOR runs by the software driven silicon chip. Because of its complexity it is relatively expensive.

Additional features like, ozone and massaging effect, also add up costs in building the machine. TRIOXINATOR is specifically designed for follicle stimulation. It is not an ozone producing device. However, it does produce some ozone which is known to sanitize skin. Dirt and excess oil in follicles restrain the growth of hair and vice versa, cleansed skin encourages hair grow. Furthermore, the gentle messaging effect in TRIOXINATOR is known to promote stimulation in follicles.

In conclusion, the science together with the quality of TRIOXINATOR gives more remarkable results for both men and women in discontinuing hair fall out and also reverse the sign of hair loss than the Laser Hair Regrowth machine.

Losing Your Hair? Check Out the Major Causes of Hair Loss and Available Treatments

Why is my hair falling out? This was the question I kept asking myself when I noticed more and more hair in my brush and on the bathroom floor every day. I knew it was normal for everyone to shed some hair on a regular basis, but as time went by, I could no longer ignore my disappearing tresses. Even my hairdresser started commenting on how thin my hair was getting and how hard it was to style now.

Teasing only made things worse and soon, I had to resort to wearing a hair piece to cover the bare scalp areas that were now clearly visible. When my eyelashes and eyebrow hair fell out as well, I knew this was serious business…and I was only 68 years old. I decided to do some research and see if I could find some answers to the hair loss I was experiencing.

First, as so many of us do these days, I went to the Internet and looked up hair loss. I found that there could be several common medical explanations for this problem:

  • Hormonal problems such as an imbalance of androgens and estrogens
  • Hormonal changes due to pregnancy, childbirth, discontinuation of birth control pills, the onset of menopause
  • Some medications, including blood thinners and antidepressants
  • Diet deficiencies and poor nutrition
  • Physiological stress such as a high fever or prolonged illness, sudden or excessive weight loss, surgery, or metabolic disturbances
  • Male pattern baldness in men

None of these conditions applied to me and did not explain the continued thinning of what was once, my thick head of hair. However, in researching further, I read with alarm that hair loss (alopecia) may occur as part of a serious underlying disease such as diabetes, lupus or hypothyroidism. I decided that the sensible thing to do was to seek professional medical attention. I consulted several physicians including a dermatologist, a neurologist and an endocrinologist, who ordered many tests to make sure I did not have any of these diseases. Although I was quite delighted that all these tests were negative, I was still left with the same question, why is my hair still falling out?

I became sick and tired of having a hair piece pinned into my hairdo every time I went to the hair salon. The pins gave me a head-ache and what’s worse, my social life suffered for I couldn’t take the chance that my hair would be touched.

Losing my hair had caused me a nightmare of embarrassment, loss of self-esteem, fear of intimacy and exposure and great expense. If I could not find a way to reverse my hair loss, I would soon need a full wig. I could not face a future like this. In desperation, I even tried the colored powder that’s sprinkled on the scalp to fill in the bare spots. This was messy, temporary, and didn’t fool anyone.

While I felt somewhat better that I had ruled out all the serious causes of hair loss, I decided that I had to find some way to stop my hair from falling out and I was determined to re-grow the full, healthy head of hair I had always been so proud of.

I decided to look into the other hair loss solutions on the market and started with the “grow hair” lotions, shampoos, hair vitamin pills, selenium supplements, etc., products they advertised in mail order catalogues. These were a total waste of time and money.

I knew there was available the more drastic option of hair transplant surgery but I decided that this was not a possible solution for me. I dismissed it for I didn’t want to suffer through the numerous, painful surgical sessions that were necessary and besides, I couldn’t afford the extravagant cost involved.

I moved on to the medicinal products. You’re probably aware of the expensive brand name products that are advertised so much. These included dandruff shampoos, scalp treatments and the most famous products whose ingredients are fairly similar, with one half of the liquid consisting of propylene glycol, one third was alcohol (both inactive ingredients), and the same 5% minoxidil. These topical solution products were not for me because you have to apply them to the scalp twice a day, and can’t miss a treatment. Some you roll on and some you rub in but no matter how you apply them, they spoil your hairdo and make your hair feel nasty. Some even come with their own disgusting smell.

I’m glad that I did my research and followed the sensible course of action. If you are suffering from hair loss, make sure you check the list of common medical causes with your doctor and have all the serious diseases that may be responsible, ruled out.

To this day, I do not have a definitive answer to the question of why my hair was falling out. However, after months of searching and trials of all kinds of hair growing products, I finally found my hair loss solution and a way to re-grow my hair with effective and affordable Legitime Scalp Air Tonic!
