Old Fashioned Remedies For Hair Loss Still Work

There are so many different home remedies and concoctions for seemingly everything. I can still remember that certain remedy that my mother used to apply to my cuts and scrapes as a child.

You can also rest assure that there are old fashioned remedies for hair loss too that will take care of the problem. We humans just seem to forget how valuable mother nature can be to us. Guess we can blame it on the media and all of the advertisements that blast us in the face on television and in magazines.

Well let me take a minute and share with you some of the natural cures that exist for all baldness sufferers. You won’t be disappointed, heck you may not even try all or any of these, but just know that there are alternatives to hair loss treatments.

That’s right. No need to go and spend a ton on the latest new fad that claims to work in regrowing hair. Chances are it’s just a fad, and at the same time a scam just to make the maker of it a quick dollar. So first let’s provide a little basis as to what causes hair loss to occur.

Many believe and are told that it’s caused by heredity. That’s only partly true. You see for most men in particular, we start to see thinning hair and a receding hairline due to a hormone that’s present in your body right now.

It’s called dihydrotestosterone or DHT for short. It’s not toxic but it will kill your hair follicle cells and ruin your chances of growing hair if not controlled.

To prevent this from happening to you, you need to take 1,500 mg of saw palmetto extract per day. This has been researched time and time again to be the most effective dose of this herb to take to really block DHT from doing its damage to you.

If you’re wanting to know where you can find this hair loss fighting herb, you can locate it in any nutrition center and even some pharmacies carry it.

Another thing you can do to jump start hair growth is to apply a teaspoonful of olive oil to all thinning areas of the scalp. Rub it in with your fingertips, leave in overnight, and rinse in the morning. Doing this for just one week will lift trapped oil and dirt that your regular shampoo may have caused for so many years.
