Signs and Symptoms of Hair Loss

Baldness, also known as alopecia, is when some part of the body (particulary the head) has an absence of hair. The most common form of baldness is a progressive hair thinning condition called androgenic alopecia, which is commonly referred to as 'male pattern baldness'. This form of hair loss commonly occurs in adult males and can begin as early as the teenage years. Hair loss can start in different areas but is usually at the temples or on the crown of the head. Initial thinning of the hair progresses over a number of years and eventually the top of the hairline meets the thinned crown, resulting in a horseshoe pattern of hair around the sides of the head. Complete baldness of the head occurs when the rate of hair loss exceeds the rate of hair regrowth, or when new hair grows back thinner or in patches. Women suffering from hair loss rarely develop the same bald patches that men do. Instead, they experience a more uniform thinning of their hair across the entire head.

Causes of Hair Loss

Common baldness is usually the result of hair follicles that begin to shrink over time, resulting in shorter and finer hair regrowth. While the exact cause of this shrinking is currently unknown, heredity, hormones and age are believed to be major contributing factors. A history of androgenetic alopecia on either side of the family increases the risk of balding. Heredity also affects the age at which you begin to lose hair and the speed, pattern and extent of your baldness. Note that this type of common balding is usually permanent, but some of the remedies below may help to slow down the hair loss process.

Hair loss can also occur as a result of certain diseases or infections, trauma, diet, medications, hormonal changes (such as during pregnancy), or improper hair care. In such instances, hair loss is usually very rapid or is associated with redness, scaling, or pain. In such instances, once the underlying cause is pinpointed and eliminated, the hair has the potential to grow back, so it is best to consult a doctor if you experience these hair loss symptoms.

Home Remedies for the Treatment of Hair Loss

Hair Loss Home Remedy Using Rosemary

Rosemary, which is an herb that is high in iron, calcium, and Vitamin B6, has been known to help combat dandruff. Since dandruff is a source of hair loss, the rosemary herb can also be used to treat it. Here is a simple remedy that you can use to treat hair loss:
  • Put half a cup of rosemary leaves into a pan and add 2 litres of water to it.
  • Simmer the mixture for 10-15 minutes and then let it cool.
  • Strain the mixture into a container and then mix a few drops of wheat germ oil.
  • Wash your hair with a mild shampoo (such as baby shampoo), and then apply the rosemary mixture evenly through your hair.
  • Let it sit for 1 minute, and then wash your hair thoroughly with lukewarm water.
  • Use this mixture daily.
Rosemary can often be found in the produce section of most grocery stores. Seeds can also be purchased if you want to grow this herb at home (use the following link if you wish to purchase some seeds from Amazon):
Buy Rosemary Seeds

Natural Remedy for Hair Loss Using Psoralea

The seeds of psoralea are commonly used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine. A recent study found that regular consumption of psoralea extracts by fourty-five bald men over a six month period resulted in hair that was completed restored in 36 percent of the cases, and a significant restoration in another 30 percent of the cases.

Therefore, a simple remedy for hair loss is to eat 3 to 9 grams of the seeds daily. They can be consumed throughout the day with every meal by using the seeds as toppings on your favourite dishes. Dried psoralea seeds can be found at some Asian markets and herbal shops. Psoralea can also be found in powdered form in order to make herbal teas.

Using Aloe Vera for Treating Hair Loss

Aloe Vera has been known to help balance the pH level of the scalp while also cleansing the pores. As a result, it has been used by many cultures to prevent hair loss and to promote healthy hair. A common remedy is to combine Aloe Vera gel with a small amount of wheat germ oil and coconut milk to create a shampoo that can be used daily to treat hair loss.

Herbal Remedy for Hair Loss Using Jatamansi and Brahmi

Stress is a leading cause of temporary hair loss. Jatamansi is a traditional Ayurvedic herb that has been know to help relieve stress and therefore promote hair growth. Brahmi is another Ayurvedic herb that helps to revitalize the brain cells and promotes memory functions and concentration. If stress is leading to your hair loss, try the following simple remedy that uses these two herbs together:
  • Mix equal amounts of jatamansi and brahmi into a small container.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of this mixture into 1 cup of hot water.
  • Drink the hot water mixture 2 or 3 times a day to relieve stress.
Jatamansi and Brahmi can be found in most Ayurvedic health shops, or you can purchase them online from large retailers such as Amazon using the following links:
Buy Jatamansi (Nardostachys Jatamansi)
Buy Brahmi (Bacopa Monniera, Gotu Kola)

Note: As a safety precaution, avoid using jatamansi and brahmi during pregnancy since there are no clinical studies studying the effect of these herbs on unborn children.

Hair Loss eBook

There is a new eBook that claims to provide a herbal remedy that can stop hair loss, using only plants and roots that are available at your local grocery store. If anyone has any experience with this remedy, please post your comments or review below.

I am a licensed Esthetician and I recently experienced alopecia due to an auto-immune condition. I've never experienced hair loss and prefer natural and Ayurvedic methods of treatment oppose to chemicals. I have developed a remedy that works for me. No detergent (sulfide, sulfate, SLS) shampoos. I used a herbal powder mixture of Amla, Brahmi, Shikakai,Tulsi (Holy Basil Leaf), Methi (Fenugreek), and Neem on my healthy hair and a hair pack with powdered Amla, Tulsi, Methi, Soapnut and Neem. I mix a tablespoon of each with, one tablespoon of hair oil (mixture of Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, and Rice Bran Oil infused with Stinging Nettle, Rosemary, Horsetail, Burdock Root, Lavender Essential Oil, and Tea Tree Oil) and warm water to make a paste. I do this weekly and the hair pack on the affected area twice a week. I also use the oil as a conditioner and apply one drop twice a day to the area and massage it in to increase circulation to that spot. I take a hair, nail, and skin vitamin in addition to my multi vitamin. The alopecia occurred at the end of March leaving me with a huge bald spot. I have significant hair growth and the area is filling in rapidly. The regimen above has worked for me! However, I know the cause of my hair loss, it is important to know the cause in order to treat it. It could be caused by allergies, disease, medication, hormones, environmental/ free radicals, etc. As a licensed esthetician, I advice to Consult a physician to determine the cause, but if possible treat natural and not chemically (prescription meds).

If the scalp is unhealthy the hair will eventually fall out. As with growing most things, fix the root. In my case, for itchy scalp, I rely upon a number of things aloe vera, apple vinegar diluted and used as a rinse. I find that fungal problems are stubborn but I have had luck in using the meds over the counter for vaginal infections, antifungal creams. finally, coconut oil and grape seed oil. the massage is very inportant. Move the scalp in a circular manner. the laser comb couple times a week, but expensive (0 and up) What I have not found is a cure.

i have heard that roughly 2 tblspns of hemp seed oil can in a bottle of shampoo can aid in thickening hair and possibly regenerating cell growth as well. also i have heard that if you wash your hair in hot water then alternate after rinsing soaking your head between cold and hot (roughly 6 times) water while rubbing the scalp stimulates blood flow to the area which can also help stimulate cell growth. and neither can hurt to try

Try virgin coconut oil. It promotes cell regeneration. Rub on scalp at night . And if needed lightly in the morning.

ATTENTION MY FRIENDS!! PLEASE READ!! A lot of what you people are suggesting as remedies for hair los does help! (The natural ones that is) BUT!! What you all do not understand is that you are TREATING a problem! That is it! You are not attacking the root cause for hair loss or any thing else that affects us negatively for that matter! Whatever it may be... to things as serious as cancer or as simple as body odor! It is all reversible and preventable! We need to wake up and realize that the cure is NUTRITION! For a truly healthy person does NOT get sick, feel awful, have disease...the list goes on! It is IMPOSSIBLE! These remedies DO HELP don't get me wrong but you must dig, find, and research the cause of the issue at hand! I am 22 years old and am suffering from the same hair loss issue, but after i learn more and more about how my health is the key to everything, the more i starve for the truth and the answers. READ people! The knowledge is out there and there is ALWAYS hope! But YOU MUST decide how badly you want to be educated. Only you can do it! Now THAT is not impossible! It is not easy to be consistent but it is easy to take a step forward in the right direction! I cannot tell you what to do other than to help youself and more importantly YOUR FAMILY. The cure is in the FOOD! The vitamins and minerals allow everything that is alive in this world to thrive! I am telling all who happen to come across this post this information because thats how it should be! Once you find the answers and the truth you MUST spread the knowledge aswell! Watch a few documentaries like "FOOD MATTER" "FOOD INC." "THE GERSON MIRACLE" for starters! That should point you in the right direction and plant some seeds that i sure hope will lead you to all you want to find! Thank you for your time and God Bless EVERYONE!!

Hello everyone, I have a dry scalp, some hair loss and thinning hair. Since I have gotten clean and sober the aging process has accelerated a bit which seems quite silly.

Ladies baldness.... Have your FERRITIN level checked. Hormone changes after babies, OR NO BABIES at all... decreases your ferritin(IRON) levels.. you need to ask DOC anything under a 50 is too low REGARDLESS IF HE/SHE says they're fine if that number isn't 50 or higher you need to be on the strongest iron supplements that means behind counter at pharmacies not over the counter as that strength isn't going to help. SERIOUSLY. I have thyroid problems and now this. If it wasn't for a dermatologist picking up on it.... my docs just brushed me off!!!

@ Queen Kalio- Indian hemp hair conditioning cream is pretty good too. Some of the herbs mentioned here should be available at Indian stores or online. You can try coconut oil or grape seed oil too if you can find them easily. Good luck! I use organic cold pressed coconut oil and it is helping me a lot!

Posted by queen kalio on Dec 02 2010 07:15:04
