If you are one of those men who have a foreboding feeling that you would soon be bald (because your father or grandfather was bald), perhaps it would be helpful for you to know that there are ways to prevent possible hair loss. It really pays to do the necessary preventive measures now rather than wait for the baldness to begin.
Here are some of the most natural ways of preventing hair loss:
1. Eat Foods That Are Rich In Sulfur
Sulfur is an element that is mainly found on nails and skin. This beauty mineral is able to promote hair growth because it improves the circulation of blood and it also has the capacity to decrease inflammation. Foods that are rich in sulfur are protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, eggs, nuts, legumes, vegetables (most especially onions). It has also been observed that sulfur creams greatly increase the chances of growing back lost hair.
2. Try The So-Called Indian Head Massage
This treatment dates as far back as 4,000 years ago and Indians are still practicing it. This massage is done to combat poor blood circulation, hypertension, and even some serious illnesses. Men and women from India would regularly have this massage as part of their health and grooming regimen. The massage oil that is used contains either of these vegetable oils - almond, olive, coconut, or sesame. Most local Indian barbers give this type of massage to male clients after a hair cut to promote hair growth and general well-being.
3. Eat Foods That Are Abundant In Vitamins And Minerals
The vitamins that are often associated with hair growth are: Vitamin A (has antioxidants to reduce oil in scalp); Vitamin C (also has antioxidants that keep hair and skin healthy); Vitamin E (enhances blood circulation on the scalp); Inositol (maintains healthy hair follicles); Biotin (helps in producing Keratin which is essential in preventing hair loss); Vitamin B3 (enhances circulation on scalp); Vitamin B5 (necessary in preventing hair loss and graying of hair); Vitamin B6 (aids in the creation of melanin which produces natural hair color and also prevents losing hair); and Vitamin B12 which makes skin and hair healthy.
4. There Is Also A Chinese Beverage That Is Believed To Cure Hair Loss - The Detox Tea
Chinese people believe that when the kidneys are detoxified, having healthy hair would also follow. This may be true as kidneys aid in good blood circulation. It is advisable to drink a cup of this tea for at least 3 times each (for about 7-10 days). After the 10-day period, only a cup is necessary to maintain healthy kidneys (and hair!). The ingredients are the following and they need to be boiled in a non-aluminum aluminum pot:
- 1/2 tbsp. of burdock root
- 1/2 tbsp. dandelion root
- 1/2 tsp. licorice
- 1 1/2 cups purified water
5. Aromatherapy Is Now More Than Just A Form Of Relaxation
It is believed that it can also stimulate well-being and hair growth. A hair oil solution has the following ingredients:
- 3 drops each of the essential oils of lavender, thyme, rosemary and cedarwood
- 1/8 cup of jojoba oil
- 1/8 cup of grapeseed oil
Constant use of this mixture resulted into 44% of hair growth among some individuals that submitted themselves for a certain hair loss study.
The following treatments and practices are all-natural and are found to have no side effects. ‘No need to wait for your hair to start falling - act on it now’.
