In one’s lifetime it’s common to lose about 100 hairs each day, but under ordinary conditions these hairs grow back. When you begin to experience more loss than that, then thinning of the hair starts and doesn’t stop unless you do something about it.
Hair loss for women and men can come about for several diverse reasons. It can be a hereditary condition called Androgenic Alopecia. Basically this means that testosterone levels are too high. (note* bald men are generally more sexually active due to high testosterone levels) Many households with a parent that’s partly or fully bald may or may not inherit this condition.
Other causes of hair loss can come about because of poor diet, excessive perms or dying the hair or long use of inferior quality shampoos and rinse which can clog the pores. Hormonal imbalances, aging, radiation, illness and toxicity may also be contributing factors.
There are various treatment options that a physician can prescribe or you could go to your neighborhood drug store and get over the counter drugs, and for some, baldness might be the best way to go.
But if you’re like the expanding amount of people who want a secure, workable alternative to drugs, then this homemade salve might be just the thing for you.
Components for the salve
- 1 tablespoon warmed olive or coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Several drops of liquid herbal saw blossom, rosemary and (rosemary if you have dark hair) (lemon for light hair)
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Warm the mix like a hot oil treatment, and massage into scalp where hair is thinning (double batch for entire scalp). Leave on for 15 minutes. For best results, use a shower cap to keep the scalp warm and to prevent drips. Saran wrap also works nicely.
Rinse and then use a gentle shampoo to get all of the mixture from your hair. You should notice right away how soft your hair is, like you have just done a professional hot oil treatment.
About The Components
Olive oil taken on a daily basis has been shown to create silky hair and soft skin. According to Adele Davis, a recognized nutritionist, people on low or no fat diets, like versions, need the good fat such as olive oil to transform dry skin and hair into being soft and lovely. This is because olive oil is quite high in monounsaturated fat and has no cholesterol and trans fats. Additionally, it contains vitamins A, D and E. It may be used to make homemade topical lotions that help out with softening skin and are useful in healing wounds. Taken orally or topically, olive oil is beneficial.
Honey is one of nature’s pure presents. Not only is it a natural sweetener but contains beneficial nutrients like B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, iron, sodium but additionally, it contains enzymes and amino acids. Honey doesn’t go bad. In a recent archeological dig, a 2000 year old clay jar was discovered with honey in it which was just as fresh as the day it was put in. It was also found that viruses, germs, bacteria generally, don’t survive in honey and it’s therefore a fantastic anti-microbial. Honey converts to a food grade hydrogen peroxide and if applied to the skin, in combination with any body fluids along with the other components, will oxygenate the skin.
Saw Palmetto, Sage and Rosemary are herbs which also help in preventing hair loss and potential regrowth. As a matter of fact, Saw Palmetto is a natural ingredient that’s found in many prescription or over the counter hair growth products. Saw Palmetto is also an herb that’s widely utilized to aid the prostate and circulatory health.
Internal ingestion is every bit as important and probably more than topical treatments alone. A diet high in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, grains like fish, eggs and poultry and great oils will have an overall better health advantage for you. Regular exercise and a once or twice per week and organic hot oil treatments should work great things for your hair and scalp.
