Hair Loss: Can it be Solved Naturally
We all know that beauty comes at a price. The price should never be your health. However, the beauty industry is incredibly overwhelming, and with so many eye-catching hair, make-up, and skincare options that come with enticing promises, it’s hard to know where to even start.
Selecting hair products that include heavy metals and other chemicals is a bad decision for your health. Hair supplement products that are clean, non-toxic, and gentle will be most beneficial for your hair, and your overall health will benefit in ways that surprise you. Hair loss, especially, is best solved with the most natural of ingredients.
What hair products are best for you and your hair growth?
You may begin your hair growth adventure with the best of intentions but then become overwhelmed when faced with all the products on the shelf and even more online. It’s incredibly confusing trying to decipher the ingredients of hair products and supplements. They all boast the most amazing benefits on the front, and reading the ingredient label feels like you have entered a science lab. So, what does your hair actually need?
- Vegan Ashwagandha
- Fo-ti Root
- Black Cumin
- Saw Palmetto
Little-known Vitamins to Support Hair Growth
Studies have shown that this natural herb promotes hair growth by stimulating the follicles and increasing blood circulation to the scalp.
Saw Palmetto Berry
Saw Palmetto is an extract derived from the berries of the saw palmetto tree. It has long been used as a traditional remedy for a variety of ailments, including hair loss. Recent studies have shown that saw palmetto can help block the production of DHT, a hormone that shrinks hair follicles, thus leading to hair loss.
Polygonum multiflorum, more commonly called Fo-Ti root, is one of the oldest and most popular herbs in China. The root improves hair health by stimulating growth, increasing strength, and preventing hair loss.
There are thousands of hair products on the market with ‘fake’ ingredients and synthetic vitamins, with special claims for hair loss, beauty, and health. However, natural supplements have been shown to have many benefits over synthetic supplements. Synthetic vitamins are not as usable or absorbable as the naturally occurring compounds in the vitamins our body needs. Synthetic vitamins were created to have a long shelf-life and be taken in high doses. With that said, it is nearly impossible right now to access natural vitamins for hair loss prevention and hair growth in a bottle.
‘Unscented’ – a clean hair growth promise or the aroma of lies?
‘Unscented’ sounds like a healthy, clean option but in fact, ‘unscented’ is a scent of its own. These products can be just as bad for you. This is because other chemicals have been added to the formula to mask any odors.
The word ‘fragrance’ doesn’t just refer to a smell. Rather, it could be a mixture of dozens of different chemicals and ingredients. Many manufacturers claim these concoctions are trade secrets and aren’t keen on sharing the exact formulations. Or, to put it another way, you never know what’s in them.
One thing we do know is that phthalates, a class of chemicals typically found in fragrances, can disrupt healthy hormones. When exposed to high levels of phthalates, we may be at risk for negative health effects. Studies have linked higher doses with hormone disruption, such as early puberty in girls or reduced testosterone production in boys. Phthalates have been associated with fertility problems, including reduced sperm count.
Parabens are another common culprit in fragrances. These synthetic preservatives can disrupt hormone production and even prevent the release of hormones. Even if the fragrance doesn’t come in contact with your skin, it can enter your body and bloodstream through your nose and mouth and wreak havoc on the endocrine system.
For an authentic no-fragrance experience, look for products that say ‘fragrance-free’. ‘Unscented’ and ‘fragrance-free’ sound the same but mean something different.
Hair loss and hair growth – best achieved naturally
What a relief to discover that we don’t need to buy expensive hair formulas and serums in extravagant bottles to achieve the most desirable hair growth. In fact, simple vitamins consumed the old-fashioned way will have the best results. And your body will thank you in ways you weren’t expecting.
