The most common cause of hair loss is genetic predisposition which is called androgenetic alopecia. Androgen is a hormone and alopecia means hair loss. Male pattern baldness causes hair loss in specific areas, usually starting above the temples and at the crown of the head. Women can also have this type of baldness, although it progresses differently then men, instead of having a pattern of baldness like men, it will become thinner all over the head.
Other potential causes for hair loss:
Hormonal imbalances, excessive weight loss, medications, medical conditions, chemotherapy, radiation, any traumatic injury to the scalp. Stress is a major cause of many aliments. Ways you can avoid or relieve stress are through meditation, exercise, aromatherapy or acupuncture. I recommend trying several options until you find what works best for you.
Natural Hair Loss Remedies:
Massage your scalp for five to ten minutes daily. Stimulating the scalp will increase the blood flow and keep your hair healthy and promote new growth.
Aromatherapy has been proven to be an effective treatment for hair loss. Aromatherapy is a safe and effective treatment and the side effect are minimal. This is also a lower cost option. This is a natural approach, so this will not be a quick fix. Result may take up to 3 month before you see any benefit from this natural remedy.
Lavender essential oil has been used to treat many different conditions of hair loss. It also has a very relaxing and calming effect to relieve stress.
Other natural essential oils that help stimulate hair growth.
Rosemary oil, chamomile oil, bay oil, cedarwood oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, thyme oil, arnica oil, grapefruit oil, lemon oil and calamus oil
To make a blend of essential oils, you can mix any variety of the above oils. Use a bottle with dropper (they usually have them where the essential oils are) if not ask someone.
Essential oils are concentrated so you should mix it with a carrier oil (sesame, soybean or almond oil). Mix 6 drops of lavender oil, or a combination of other essential oils with 4 drops of carrier oil. Massage into your scalp for a few minutes, then leave it in for 20 minutes, then shampoo.
Precaution: It is always best to check with your physician before applying any type of oils to your scalp or skin. You want to be sure you do not have any type of allergic reaction to any oils.
