Male Hair Loss: Natural Hair Loss Treatment

Men have been fighting hair loss since the beginning of time with methods that are at times ridiculous and dangerous. The men today is more fortunate than their forebears in that they have more treatment options, including synthetic substances and chemicals that sadly may pose some health risks. Still there are today alternatives based on conventional methods that are proven to be as effective.

Male pattern baldness is often genetic and/or related to too much dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the follicles of the scalp. This is a unique kind of testosterone that is found only in hair follicles. For years, saw palmetto oil has been used to treat prostate problems, and it has been found to have some beneficial effect in blocking the DHT that causes most male hair loss.

Multivitamins with B5, folic acid, silica and biotin in regulated dosages will contribute to the maintenance of hair health. Excessive daily intake of more than 30 mg of zinc can result in copper deficiency that can contribute to hair loss. However, there should be a corresponding reduction in zinc intake when taking copper supplements as copper can be harmful.

Traditional Asian medicine links hair loss to kidney malfunction and often prescribes a kidney tonic to correct male hair loss. Aromatherapy and essential oil has also been used extensively in olden times. A combination of rosemary, thyme, lavender and cedarwood was studied in Scotland and the results were encouraging. These essential oils plus almond or grape seed as carrier oil are fist warmed and spread into the scalp. After application, a warm head wrap is put in place. The result is positive hair growth for 40% of the participants after several months of use.

Surprisingly to some, proper diet is an effective way of preventing or treating baldness. Increased consumption of food rich in iron and silica is seen to fortify hair and induce new hair growth. Men with history of hair problems should increase their intake of silica rich food like potato and cucumber skins, peppers and sprouts.

People today is over dependent in medicine, yet many are having second thoughts about prescription drugs. You really are not obliged to. Many of the natural hair loss treatments are pleasant and more often than not, have no side effects. The results may surprisingly be to your liking.
