There is quite an abundance of hair loss treatments on the market nowadays. A handful of them may be effective, but they all contain chemicals which can be harmful.
Herbal treatments for hair loss are a great option to consider. They are less expensive and do not contain any chemicals.
Aloe Vera has been used for centuries to treat hair loss. It has been proven to be highly effective in reversing baldness and promoting the growth of new hair. It has been discovered that Aloe Vera has the capacity to stimulate the formation of Nitric Oxide.
Nitric Oxide has been considered to be a hair growth stimulant particularly in men. Aloe Vera is used by rubbing the gel gently onto the scalp each night before bedtime.
Nettle is another great plant that has been widely used to prevent baldness and stimulate hair growth. The root is the part of the plant that is used as a hair loss remedy. Nettle root extracts are made into either capsules or pills.
The extract from the root of the nettle plant stimulates the follicles of the hair, which results in the growth of new hair. Nettle root extracts also prevent testosterone from being converted into DHT, which is the hormone that causes hair loss and eventually baldness.
Green tea is rich in anti-oxidants called catechins, which put a stop to hair loss and prevent baldness in men. 5-alpha-reductase is an enzyme that converts the hormone testosterone into the baldness-causing hormone DHT. The anti-oxidants found in green tea prevent the conversion of 5-alpha-reductase into DHT. Because of this, baldness and hair loss is prevented.
Coconut oil has been used by many, especially those living in the tropics, as a hot oil treatment to keep the hair shiny and healthy. In addition to this, coconut oil is also great for preventing hair loss. Just massage the coconut oil all over the scalp, making sure the roots of the hair are coated. Leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing.
Make sure to massage the oil into the scalp for a few minutes because it also helps promote a healthy blood circulation in the scalp. Coconut milk can also be used as an effective hair loss treatment.
