Gentlemen - hair loss is not a foregone conclusion.
Cosmetic procedures are expensive and wigs are never a good idea - so what other options have you got?
Look to nature. We've found 4 of the best natural hair loss solutions you can try if your hair is thinning.
Natural Hair Thinning Solution 1: Aloe Vera Leaf Juice
Aloe Vera has been used for cosmetic and medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Its leaves contain a translucent juice which is renowned for its healing properties.
Aloe Vera Leaf Juice contains proteolytic enzymes which repair dead skin cells on your scalp and create the ideal environment for hair growth.
It's also rich in nutrients and Vitamins A and E.
Vitamin A helps your scalp produce sebum - the oily substance which nourishes your hair and helps prevent breakage).
Vitamin E repairs damaged hair follicles while acting as a moisturizer to help prevent broken, brittle hair.
How to apply Aloe Vera Leaf Juice:
- Cut a leaf from a live Aloe Vera plant
- Use a spoon to collect the juice inside and massage the mixture directly into your scalp
- Let it sit for 1 hour then use a shampoo to wash out
- Repeat this process 2-3 times a week
Natural Hair Thinning Solution 2: Sage Extract
Sage - known as the "Miracle Herb" - contains natural oils like camphor, linalool, bornyl acetate and borneo - which stimulate hair growth and strengthen hair roots.
Sage also contains Vitamin K which increases blood circulation on your scalp and improves oxygen delivery to your hair follicles, thus promoting hair growth and rejuvenating dry or thinning hair.
It's high in beta-sitosterol which has been shown to be effective in the treatment of male pattern baldness and is a powerful antioxidant (containing rosmarinic acid, camphor, and carnosol).
On top of this, Sage is also an anti-inflammatory and is great for treating dermatitis and dry scalp.
How to apply Sage Extract:
To get Sage Extract, you need to make Sage Tea.
- Take a handful of Sage leaves and wash with water
- Place the leaves in a pot with 2 cups of water
- Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes
- Allow to the tea to cool for 2-3 hours, strain the spent herbs and apply the liquid to freshly washed hair - ensuring you work it in from roots to ends.
- Do not rinse.
- Squeeze out the excess liquid and towel dry your hair
- Do this 2-3 times a week.
Natural Hair Thinning Solution 3: Coconut Oil
- Medulla (innermost layer)
- Cortex (contains protein and provides strength, moisture and color)
- Cuticle (outermost layer which protects the Cortex)
Washing, styling or combing your hair can damage the Cuticle, exposing the Cortex and resulting in protein loss which leaves your hair thin and prone to breakage - meaning it can fall out.
A 2003 study in the Journal of Cosmetic Science found Coconut Oil reduced protein loss in hair remarkably.
To understand how, think of your hair as a hollow tube.
When you apply Coconut oil, it completely penetrates this "tube", filling up the hair shaft, restoring moisture and preventing further protein loss.
It also has the added benefit of giving each strand of hair more body - making your hair look fuller and denser.
Coconut Oil is also high in Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Zinc and Iron and essential fatty acids which improve scalp health by unclogging hair follicles, helping your hair grow thicker and faster.
How to apply Coconut Oil:
- Start with a small amount (no more than a teaspoon)
- Massage the oil through dry hair, starting at the roots and continuing to the ends.
- Leave in your hair for 30 minutes before washing out with a gentle shampoo.
- Use 2 -3 times a week.
Natural Hair Thinning Solution 4: Kakadu Plum
This "super fruit" is found in Australia and contains 3000mg of Vitamin C per 100g of fruit, giving it the highest amount of Vitamin C found in any food.
Vitamin C is used by your body to produce collagen - an important part of hair structure and it helps your body absorb iron (the lack of which can cause hair loss and stop hair growing past a certain length).
Vitamin C deficiency can cause dry, brittle hair and hair loss because it can lead to Anemia - a condition in which you lack enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your body's tissues.
Your body can't produce Vitamin C on its own, nor can it store it. This means you need to absorb Vitamin C daily - so you can see why Kakadu Plum is regarded so highly.
This is the best way to eat Kakadu plums is fresh, fully ripe and fallen from the tree.
So there we have it: 4 natural ingredients you can use to help prevent thinning hair and promote hair growth.
Now you could spend your evenings and weekends touring every health shop and Kakadu tree in the area or you could save yourself the headache and grab a bottle of VITAMAN's Hair Food - a potent tonic which increases scalp circulation and helps stimulate hair growth.
Just massage into your scalp 2-3 times a week after shampooing, leave for 15 minutes then rinse and condition your hair.
You'll start to see a difference in 3 weeks.
