The best ways to combat a receding hairline
Many men show the first signs of hairloss by the age of 20. The first sign of hairloss is a receding hairline. It’s very distressing to see the hair just creeping backwards in a matter of some months to years. We are most of the time worried about the lost hair and fail to worry about the hair which is there on the scalp. The first step towards any hair treatment is first to save the existing hair on the scalp and making them strong. The next step is working towards getting hair back depending on the type of hairloss. Acceptance of the condition in which you come and the best treatment possible in your case is what every person suffering from hair loss should be ready for. Hair regrowth largely depends on the hair problem you are diagnosed with and how much it has progressed. For example: Male Patterned Baldness in its early stages responds well to treatment. In advance male pattern baldness cure may not be possible but the progress of hair loss can be slowed down It’s best to consult a trichologist for a personalized review for each individual case.
Lower your DHT Levels
Male pattern baldness (MPB) or Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) is one of the principal forms of hair loss. It not just depletes the hair but it can also trigger major emotional and psychosocial problems, especially in young men. There is a decline in hair thickness or density of hair gradually. This is the best time to start appropriate and effective treatment to stall the slide.
Hairloss is primarily a result of excess male hormone (testosterone). Sounds a little technical but put simply, Testosterone + 5 Alpha Reductase (an enzyme) gets converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a major cause of hairloss in men. DHT reduces the growing phase and extends the resting phase of hair. This results in Male Pattern Baldness. Hereditary factors, hormones, stress, chemical treatments, mismanagement of hair, dandruff, smoking, lack of sleep are known triggering for hair loss. Hairloss treatment for men primarily aims at reducing the DHT effect on hair so that it can slow down receding and postpone baldness.
Hairloss treatment for Men:
Most cases of hair loss require long term treatment (often for years). Hair growth cycle is of 3-7years. It is important not to lose patience during treatment because impatience and resulting stress will slow down the process of recovery.
Consider it a lifestyle illness, much like high blood pressure or diabetes where you keep taking pills for all your life to keep them under control. This holds good for progressive hair loss. You have to keep taking medicines for a long time, but then it’s worth your time and effort.
Homeopathy is free from any side-effects. Not only do homoeopathic medicines reduce hairloss but they also protect the body from harmful side-effects (such as decreased libido, ejaculation problems) that are common with conventional drugs.
Homoeopathic remedies such as Thuja Occidentalis or Sabal Serrulata have been used for treating hairloss in homoeopathy since 100 years. International clinical studies have proven that the two homoeopathic remedies cited natural DHT-inhibitor (hormone responsible for causing thinning of hair), i.e. they can control hairloss caused by DHT without side-effects.
Hair lotions available in market to control hair loss are very high in chemicals and can cause a chemical burns on the scalp skin leading to permanent hairloss and scars in the affected areas. Homoeopathy has no such side-effects as the medicines are oral medicines.
