Natural Ways of Hair Care

Modern medical science has various effective drugs and surgical methods to take care of hair loss problems. But a natural hair loss treatment option is nevertheless a realistic alternative.
Changing Scenarios
Today, an increasing number of people are choosing to modify their lifestyles. People are choosing alternative means of treatment including natural remedies to cure their ailments.

Lifestyle Changes
People are avoiding intake of, for example, saturated fats as much as possible. Instead, they are opting for a healthy and balanced diet - a diet that is low in saturated fats and high in fiber. Fresh fruits and green vegetables have replaced processed foods.
These changes in dietary habits lead to a number of important benefits. For example, replacing diets rich with saturated fats with balanced and healthy ones can prevent hair loss resulting from aging and genetic factors. Besides, some herbal nutritional supplements and some fruits containing antioxidants may serve as natural medications for hair loss.
Herbal Supplements
The following are some of the sources of hair supplements that could be useful for the treatment of hair loss -

Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) - This palm-like plant is native to North America. Extracts from saw palmetto berries contain fatty acids and sterols. They block 5-Alpha-Reductase and reduce DHT uptake by hair follicles. They also bring down the block binding of DHT to androgen receptors < androgen-receptor-discussion.php>. The liposterolic extract of saw palmetto combined with beta-sitosterol (a phytosterol common to many plants and grains) has produced notable improvements in anti-androgen activity in several research studies.

Boarage oil - Boarage oil contains omega-3 fatty acids. Its inclusion in a diet may help to prevent hair loss. In fact, it may even help promote hair re-growth.

Boarage seeds also contain gamma linoleic acid (GLA), an omega-6 fatty acid. The latter is a good fat, which may help prevent male pattern baldness.

Stinging nettle (Urtica diocia) - It has been in use as a hair tonic for centuries. It is believed to stimulate new hair growth and bring back natural hair color. DHT is the hormone responsible for male pattern baldness. A nettle root extract reportedly prevents testosterone from being converted to DHT.

Green tea extract - Agents from green tea also hamper the conversion of testosterone to DHT. The concentration of catechins in green tea is higher than in black tea. Black tea is allowed to dry and ferment. But, that is not the case with green tea. And that helps preserve catechin integrity.

Grape seeds - Grape seeds contain OPCs (oligomeric proanthocyanidins). They stimulate epithelial cell growth and check the growth-inhibiting effect of a molecule that androgen affected hair follicles produce called TGF-beta2.

Apple skin - Apple skin is another source of natural hair loss treatment. Studies have established procyanidin therapy as a potential treatment for male pattern baldness. Apple procyanidins reportedly have far reaching hair-growth promoting capacity. The skin of immature (baby) green apples is the richest known source of procyanidin.

Black cohosh - Black cohosh possesses the ability to regulate estrogen hormone levels. Thus, it may be helpful in hair loss prevention and restoration. It is a regular component of natural hair loss restoration formulas.

Licorice - This native Europen herb may be known as an excellent expectorant. But it is also an effective hair loss treatment agent. And this quality stems from the same ability that black cohosh is known for. It is the ability to regulate estrogen hormone level.

Ayurvedic antistress tea - Consuming a mixed drink of Nardostachys jatamamsi and Bacopa monnieri each day may prevent hair loss. Besides, it is hepful in relieving stress.

He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum) - This Chinese herb is a common component of various hair loss remedy preparations.

Pygeum (Pygeum africanum) - Apart from treating male pattern baldness, it also treats prostate problems.

Cinnamon and Dragon Bone - It provides a solution for the round spots of alopecia.

Mixture of Bupleurum and Dragon Bone - It is another agent to treat round alopecia spots.

Silver and Platycodon Formula - It is another herbal supplement promoting hair growth.

The ability to regulate estrogen hormone levels has established some other herbs as effective hair loss treatment agents. They are wild yam root, motherwort, chamomile, valerian root and skullcap. They all stimulate estrogen in your system.
