How to Stop Male Pattern Baldness

Mar 19, 2008
It appears that, like wrinkles and belly fat, baldness is largely inherited. However, the theory that baldness is inherited from the mother's side may have been debunked.

Newer studies have concluded that male pattern baldness may come from either parent; though the mother's side may be slightly more influential. What this means to the average male is this: look to your family.

If your father, grandfather or uncles have baldness, then you're likely to suffer from a genetic disposition for male hair loss. However, if your family members have normal hair, then you should be relieved, because your hair loss is being caused by non-genetic factors.

The good news is that hair follicles do not die. Instead, they simply become unproductive. The trick to preventing hair loss is figuring out how to keep those hair follicles from becoming dormant. It may even be possible to re-awaken unproductive hair follicles and re-grow hair.

If family history suggests that hair loss is a likely scenario for you, there are some things that decrease your risk.

While you can use chemical drugs to slow down hair loss, you can always go natural. Many people look into natural products nowadays to treat their health problems, not only because of the cheaper costs but the sheer effectiveness of those products. Try using these natural ingredients to stop hair loss:

1. Saw Palmetto: This herb is effective at stopping DHT production, and because of this Saw Palmetto is sometimes used to stop prostate enlargement. An increase in DHT causes both prostate enlargement and hair loss.

2. Nettle root: These natural extracts block other chemicals that contribute to hair loss, and prostate enlargement. You can combine nettle root with saw palmetto to see faster results.

They are the same ones that can cause hair loss. Evidence suggests that nettle root may not only stave off baldness, but may actually regenerate hair growth.

3. Vitamins: Certain vitamins have been shown to be particularly effective at staving baldness. Vitamin A works well to promote sebum production in the hair scalp, and removes toxins from the body, which cause hair loss.

Vitamin E boosts blood circulation to the hair scalp. A well circulated scalp helps hair follicles become active. And the set of B Vitamins increase melanin which maintains hair color and also increases blood circulation.

In addition to these ingredients, which help stop hair loss naturally, massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage.

Don't panic when your next family reunion nets a sea of bald heads. There's hope for you. Since all of these natural remedies also have other health benefits on the body besides stimulating the scalp, there's little reason not to try them.
