Treating Balding Spots With Natural Treatments

"When you see the first balding spots on your head, it can be a bit disheartening. Most men know that they are going to face baldness, since it is genetic and they can see it in their parents. However, the fact that you have a gene to lose hair doesn't mean you just have to sit by and watch it happen. In fact, there are many ways to treat hair loss without resorting to surgery or bizarre concoctions.

The main cause of male pattern baldness is actually a simple hormone. The DHT hormone is something that the body creates on its own, converting testosterone into this hormone. It can stick to the hair follicles. This blocks the flow of blood to the area and the hair will die off and fall out, without new hair to grow in and replace it. This is usually the cause and is what most treatments target.

There are some pretty odd treatments for baldness out there. They treat the underlying cause but can wreak havoc on the body. The majority of these do the same thing as natural treatments, block the DHT hormone from binding to hair follicles and killing them. Since natural options don't have the same unpleasant effects, it's usually best to stick with natural.

You'll find a lot of home remedies that treat baldness, but you may prefer to opt for specific products that contain natural ingredients, instead. There are two ways to go, topical or ingested. Which you use will depend greatly on preference.

Pumpkin seeds, zinc and saw palmetto are all very good for taking internally. All three work to block the production of DHT in the body, much like prescription drugs, but without the side effects. This will also help keep you healthier since all of these ingredients are good for other bodily functions, as well.

Topical applications can contain things like olive oil, aloe vera, almond oil and fenugreek. These should be massaged into the scalp. The stimulation will help blood reach the hair follicles to encourage growth. If you use a combination of external and internal treatments, you'll find that you have faster results.

The oral supplements will prevent DHT from forming and blocking the hair follicles, while massage will stimulate the circulation. The ingredients in the topical paste or oil will help increase the hair growth, too. It's a good idea to use all of these to ensure the best hair regrowth on balding spots."
