Natural Healing For Hair Loss
Healthy hair is the body's most beautiful ornament but hair loss and related problems could quickly and easily ruin it. Hair is a non-living tissue, made up mainly of a fibrous proteins called keratin - the same material found in your fingernails and toenails. The living part of the hair is below the surface of the scalp, called follicle, which supplies these dead cells to keep our mane flowing. At the base of the follicle is a cluster of living cells called the papilla, which eventually forms hair. Next to the follicle is the sebaceous gland that actually keeps the hair shiny and looking vibrant. Excessive sebum activity can make hair unduly oily while lack of sebum activity can make it dry and lifeless. The health of your hair requires a plentiful supply of nutrient-rich blood to nourish the hair follicles in the scalp, from which new hair sprouts. On average, hair grows about half an inch a month.
Hair loss can be triggered off by various reasons, internal diseases, reaction to drugs, dietary deficiencies, scalp diseases, menopause, childbirth, are common causes, which lead to a loss of essential nutrients and minerals from the scalp. Another cause of hair loss that is usually overlooked is hair damage. Excessive stretching and tugging with hard combs and styling appliances, exposure to extreme heat, regular use of rollers and blow drying, perming and colouring lead to this problem.
How female-pattern hair loss is different from male-pattern hair loss
Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss or baldness in an area of the body where hair is normally present. Usually, it refers to loss of scalp hair. Two patterns of hair loss are female-pattern baldness (general thinning with moderate loss at the hair line and crown) and male-pattern baldness (receding hair line with moderate to extensive loss at the crown).
In males, hair loss occurs in a typical pattern with thinning and then bald spots from the forehead area and on top of the head. This type of balding usually starts at the temples and then will gradually recede to form an "M" shape on the head. The hair on the top of the head will start to thin out. Over time, the male is left with a horseshoe-shaped pattern of hair around his head. The hair that remains in the balding areas starts out as long, thick, and pigmented and changes into fine, unpigmented sprouts that grow at a slower rate. If a man begins losing his hair during his mid-teen years, there is a good chance he will become completely bald on top of his head.
In female pattern
hair loss, when the affected hair is shed, the root grows one in its place that is
shorter. Eventually it becomes an invisible "peach fuzz". Genetically, hair loss
can come from either parent's side of the family. Female pattern hair loss may begin as
early as puberty. In these cases if there are signs of hormone imbalance, such as excess
facial or body hair, a hormone evaluation should be done. Hormonal changes are a common
cause of female hair loss.
Hair Loss Types
Medically, hair loss falls into several categories, including:
In men, hair loss may follow the typical "male" pattern. This is the most common type of hair loss, and it can begin at any time in a man's life, even during his teen years. Quite similarly, most women will develop at least mild female pattern alopecia. It is caused by heredity, hormones, and age. The process of hair loss can begin, for some individuals, as soon as in their teens, while others begin to notice thinning hair in their 20s or 30s, or even later in life.
Alopecia areata results in the appearance of roughly circular bald patches on the scalp. The skin in the affected area is smooth and soft and has no hair at all. Hair loss is sudden, sometimes even overnight. Alopecia areata may be no more than a few bald patches that appear and then regrow hair. If the patches are small, the chances of regrowth are very good.
Diffuse alopecia areata leads to sudden thinning without the bald patches. This condition is far less common than the bald patches described above.
This is a generalized, diffuse hair loss that happens 2 to 3 months after a major body stress, such as a prolonged high fever, major surgery, or serious infection. It may also happen after a sudden change in hormone levels, especially in women after childbirth.
Drug Side Effects
Certain medications have hair loss as annoying side effect, especially medications such as: lithium; beta blockers; the "blood-thinners", warfarin and heparin; amphetamines; levodopa, and other drugs. Daunorubicin, and other medicines used in cancer chemotherapy, can also cause sudden generalized hair loss.
Symptom of a Medical Illness
Hair loss can be one of the symptoms of a medical illness, such as: lupus erythematosus; syphilis; a thyroid disorder ; sex hormone imbalance; sarcoidosis; or a serious nutritional problem, especially a deficiency of protein, iron, zinc, or biotin. These deficiencies are not uncommon in women on weight loss diets or those who have very heavy menstrual flow.
Fungal infection of the scalp. This form of patchy hair loss happens when the scalp is infected by the fungus Trichophyton tonsurans. This causes the hair to break off right at the scalp surface and the causes the scalp to flake or become scaly.
This man-made form of hair loss is caused by hairdressing techniques that do one of the following : pull the hair (tight braiding or corn-rowing); expose hair to extreme heat and twisting (curling iron or hot rollers); or damage the hair with strong chemicals (bleaching, hair coloring, permanent waves).
Taking good care of your hair will reap its own rewards, remember, hair is like your fingernails and it must be treated gently if you want it to stick around. The herbs used in this formulation are chosen as they have a history of promoting healthy hair growth, preventing the shedding of hair, restoring hair on balding areas and possessing a nervine quality. These herbs then promote healthy nerve life.

My hair had always been so important to me and when it started becoming thinner and finer, I felt thoroughly depressed. After 5 months of applying the hair recovery cream I am please with the results. There is a thickening of hair in the thinning areas. There is just no way to adequately explain how much better I feel.

I am in my early 30s. My hair started shedding quite drastically 2 months ago. I came across your website and saw this hair recovery cream. I can really see the difference it makes to my hair after six months of use of the hair treatment product. I can see fine strands sprouting out from where my hair was thin before. And I see less hair coming off when I comb or wash my hair. I have since continued using this product as a preventive measure. Many thanks!
