As a middle aged male suffering from hair loss, I am very familiar with the negative effects that it has on my physicality and mentality. I simply could not wear a baseball cap everywhere I went, so I had to do something and I had to do it quick. I immediately starting trying all kinds of different products and treatments, but I just was not seeing any positive results. After hundreds of dollars later and lots of stress, I immediately hit the Internet, and starting doing research on herbs for hair growth. I was quite surprised at all the things that I learned.
I discovered all kinds of natural herbs for hair growth and being a generous person that I am, I decided to share my personal experience with you.
I already knew that stress was altogether bad for the body, but I was surprised to learn that it can actually cause hair loss. If you work a high stress job like me, then it can be hard to lessen the stress in your life. One great way to try to avoid the stress is by taking a yoga class. You would be surprised at how much getting in touch with your inner self can improve your health. It has been proven that just by decreasing your stress and anxiety levels, you can prevent your hair loss condition from worsening.
Hair Loss Brushes
I must admit that I have tried lots of different hair care products, home remedies, and prescription medications. I even tried hair loss brushes, but failed to see results. I was misled to believe that you can stimulate the scalp with a brush to improve blood circulation, but this is a huge misconception. While there is a variety hair loss brushes on the market that guarantee results in preventing hair loss, there is actually no medical research to backup these statements.
In my desperate search for hair regrowth solutions, I tried wheatgrass, even though I detested the taste. While this herb has not been proven to boost hair growth, it is rich in essential nutrients and can make you more relaxed. Being more relaxed and taking in the essential nutrients that your body needs can greatly improve your hair condition. The disadvantages of this all-natural treatment are the acquired taste, massive consumption, and it takes weeks or possibly months, before new hair growth is noted.
I first came across rosemary, an evergreen-like plant that smells wonderful. Of course, I had already heard of rosemary’s popularity, but I did not know that it could actually aid in preventing hair loss. In fact, I learned that this herb has been used for centuries to treat various forms of alopecia. This herb’s effectiveness is linked to its ability to improve the blood circulation in the scalp. I also learned that you can combine this herb with olive oil for an even more effective result.
A downside to this treatment is that it takes a lot of preparation to ready it for use and before you will start to see results, so I decided to continue searching for herbs for hair growth.
I was shocked to discover that peppermint was actually an herb, but I was even more surprised to learn that it had been used for many decades to treat hair loss. The herb works by boosting new hair follicle growth. The peppermint oil will actually soothe and cool the scalp, upon application. However, I was overwhelmed by the minty scent and as a man, I felt it was inappropriate. I also found the mentholated sensation was a little overwhelming, especially during the winter months.
Aloe Vera was another herb that I was pretty familiar with, but again I did not know that it could boost hair growth. This herb will actually stimulate the blood circulation throughout the body, so that oxygen enriched blood and nutrients can efficiently reach the scalp. It can also open blocked pores, which can prevent the hair follicle from reaching the scalp’s surface. The only thing I did not like about this treatment is that you have to keep applying it on a regular basis. Otherwise you will not be able to maintain the proper pH balance to promote hair growth.
Eventually I came across an herb called saw palmetto. This was one herb that I had never heard of before. However, saw palmetto has been used for years to treat pattern baldness. It has been proven to be more effective, when it is used in conjunction with nettle herb. One downside to this herbal treatment is that it takes a lot of preparation to get the herb ready for use. It is important to seek the advice of your primary care physician, prior to use, especially in women with a history of breast cancer. This herb must be taken with milk or food, because it can also cause abdominal discomfort.
There is an unlimited array of herbs for hair growth, but none can compare to horsetail. This herbal plant is very unique, in that it has two stems. Most people take this herb for strengthening their nails and bones, but it can also aid in preventing hair loss. Horsetail will actually strengthen your hair follicles to prevent breakage. There are many hair conditioners available on the market that contains this herb. You also have the option of purchasing the herb from your local herbal shop and then adding it to your favorite conditioner.
Apple Cider Vinegar
While I was scouring the Internet, I discovered an article about herbs for hair growth, which involved apple cider vinegar. I actually had a full bottle stored away in my cupboard, so I decided to give it a try. I must say that the scent was so overwhelming that I was immediately taken aback, but I refused to give up at this point. The application process for very time consuming, plus I noticed that the vinegar appeared to strip out all of my hair’s natural oil.
Wich Herbs For Hair Growth is the best?
As mentioned above, I have tried various herbs to attempt to grow my hair, with each having its own advantages and disadvantages. I was so destined to have a full head of hair that I continued exploring other alternatives, until I achieved my goal. Of course, none of these came, until after I watched this video!
