Hair growth remedies have been around for a long time, quite possibly hundreds of years. Having long, thick, and lustrous locks of hair is desirable by most people, men and women alike. This makes the problems of thinning hair or hair loss very upsetting for many.
Common causes of hair loss can include nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, stress, use of improper hairstyles, heating tools, chemical-laden hair products, genetics, and various other medical reasons.
If you are visiting Apollo then most likely you have noticed your hair thinning or possibly beginning to have balding to some degree. You hopped online and started researching hair loss, hair loss treatments, hair thinning etc. The amount of information available today is overwhelming. Sorting out all the formulas, medications, surgical procedures and so forth can be a daunting task. Some sound promising, some sound ridiculous and some are incredibly expensive (the average hair transplant can cost anywhere between $4000 and $15,000).
You may have decided to take matters into your own hands for now and began a search for hair growth remedies you can apply yourself. To be honest right from the start, there is no cure for hair loss. You may be able to slow the process, but if the process of hair loss or hair thinning has begun and is noticeable, then you are faced with the inevitable. Apollo can help you sort through some of the topics regarding hair growth remedies, but we highly recommend contacting us to discuss not only any concerns you may have with hair growth remedies, but also any cost effective alternatives that exist for non-surgical hair replacement.
So what can you do at home to help remedy your hair loss? Well there are a few things that you can implement quickly that will help slow the process.
Brushing your hair with a brush that has teeth rather than bristles will pull more hair out when brushing your hair. So make sure you are using a bristle brush (preferably something like a boar bristle brush).
Use a neutral shampoo and conditioner. Look for a pH of 5.5 or as close as you can to this.
Avoid styling products.
Stay out of the direct sun as much as possible.
If you are a smoker, quit smoking. Smoking constricts blood vessels which can then not deliver enough blood and oxygen to your hair follicles.
In addition to general dos and don’ts, you may come across, hair growth remedies that involve rubbing herbs, extracts, oils and teas on your scalp or ingesting them. There is really no scientific proof that any of these hair growth remedies will restore you hair growth or for that matter slow the hair thinning or hair loss process. If you do decide to give these a try we would like to speak with your first to help you avoid any harmful effects that could arise.
