Pattern Baldness - Hair Loss Herbs to Get Your Hair Back

Pattern baldness is very common, both the more common male pattern baldness as well as female pattern baldness, which some people refer to female thinning hair. No one wants to lose their hair, and it can make you look older, fatter, less attractive, and ruin your self esteem. Although it's true that many men and some women do look great with shaved heads, that's not true about me and it's not true about you either I bet. Otherwise you probably wouldn't be reading this.

I'd love to say there is a cure, but there is no cure for baldness yet. Most researchers seem to be working on more important issues like cancer and AIDS understandable, as they can both be lethal and that's were the funding is. Besides, no one ever died of baldness - yet. Although there is no "cure" there are several methods that can help you grow or replace your hair. Unfortunately what works for one person may not work for another. You may need to try several techniques before you find one that works, and we suggest starting with simple yet effect natural hair growth techniques and then moving to pharmaceutical methods and finally more invasive procedures if need be. Let's start at the beginning at look at herbal solutions.

Hair Growth Herbs - Various herbs have been used for essentially ever for medical purposes and there are several herbs that may help you immensely. These include Algae Extract which works by healing damages to the scalp/hair. Ginkgo Biloba is a herb commonly prescribed by herbalists for hair regrowth. It's believed that it stimulates scalp hair growth and regrowth by increasing blood flow to the scalp. Rosemary has also been used for a long time, centuries, as a remedy for hair loss, and is applied directly to the scalp. Eating it does not work. It contains rosmarinic acid, an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, and reduces the production of leukotriene B4, which is known to injure hair follicles and contribute to hair loss. Green tea, stinging nettle, saw palmetto, and dong quai are other herbs often used.

There are commercial preparations available that combine these herbs in helpful combinations, or you can visit an herbalist. You also may want to consult your doctor to make sure there is no adverse reaction with any medicines you may be taking.

Herbs are not for everyone and they may or may not work for you, but it makes sense to try natural solutions as they may work and are less invasive than other techniques.
