Whether you suffer from male pattern baldness, or you have an underlying health condition that is causing you to lose hair, it’s time to make some lifestyle changes. First you have to determine why you are losing hair, and treat any medical conditions that may be causing it. There are no scientifically proven home remedies to cure baldness, although some may slow down the progression of hair loss.

Maintain a Healthy Diet

A healthy head of hair is nourished by a diet full of nutritious foods. You will need plenty of B vitamins in your diet, and you should include both zinc and sulfur too. When you give your body the right nutrition, your overall health will improve, and your stress levels will remain in check. Poor health and high stress levels can both contribute to hair loss in men and women.

Treat Your Hair Right

Harsh treatment of your hair can cause your hair to get damaged and fall out. If you notice areas of thinning, stay away from blow dryers and curling irons as much as possible. Use a minimal amount of styling products. The less you fuss with your hair, the less it will break and get damaged from heat and chemical laden products.

Home remedies for baldness can include scalp massage, which will increase blood flow to your scalp, and a variety of pastes made from herbs, coconut milk, and even castor oil. When your scalp is properly cared for, you will have less hair loss overall. Some people lose hair because their scalp is dry, patchy, or has areas of dermatitis. These are medical issues that should be treated in order to prevent further hair loss.

Many people decide at some point to simply let nature take its course when it comes to hair loss. Carefully treating your hair and scalp will make the hair you have last longer. For professional  services, contact Doctors of Hair today!
