At all times and at all peoples smart head of hearwas considered a sign of beauty and health. Of course, in the first place it concerned the fair sex. At our distant ancestors, long, thick hair from a woman was the guarantee of the survival of the offspring. In cold weather, the mother could cover the cub with her curls. Therefore, since ancient times people have been looking for a universal remedy for hair loss. So, for example, the treatment of alopecia in Ancient Egypt included the use of leaves of lettuce, goose fat and even snake venom. And in ancient Rome, an effective remedy for hair loss was the bone marrow of a bull, which was rubbed into the scalp. But to find a universal remedy for hair loss is still not possible, because this problem is associated with absolutely different factors, such as:
- genetic predisposition;
- bacterial and fungal infections, autoimmune diseases;
- hormonal disorders;
- stress (both physical and emotional)
- unbalanced diet;
- taking certain medications (antidepressants, pressure medications, anticoagulants, arthritis remedies).
- external adverse effects.
But no matter what the reason, it's not worth it.despair! There are many ways to improve the situation. To help in the treatment you will receive both various folk remedies for hair loss, as well as high-tech procedures, salon procedures and SPA programs, as well as various biologically active supplements and vitamin complexes. If the problem is particularly acute, and we are already talking about the fight against baldness, then it makes sense to consult a doctor-trichologist.
The most effective folk remedies for hair loss
Mask kefir-mustard. Take one egg yolk, a little kefir and 1 tbsp. spoon mustard, whisk until smooth. Apply on the head, cover with polyethylene and a warm kerchief. Wash off after 30 minutes with warm water. Tincture of red capsicum. This remedy is one of the best for growth and strengthening of hair thanks to the stimulating effect on hair follicles. For its preparation, 1/4 chopped red pepper pod, pour 1/4 cup of alcohol, after 1 week filter. For use, dilute one teaspoon of tincture with 10 teaspoons of boiled water and carefully rub into the scalp. Be careful not to let the mixture get into the eyes. Repeat the procedure 3 times a week. Hair will please you with rapid growth and healthy shine. Bread mask. It is not for nothing that bread is considered a head. Due to the high content of B vitamins in rye bread, masks based on it are among the most effective against hair loss. Here is one of the recipes: 150 g of pulp of rye bread kneaded in boiled water, add 1 teaspoon of sea salt, stir, let the mixture infuse for 1-2 hours. Then rub the resulting mass into the scalp, create a "greenhouse effect" and hold for 25 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. Such once exotic plants, like ginger and avocado, also take up not the last places in the struggle for the beauty and strength of hair. Prepare from them a mask is not difficult. Ginger rub on a fine grater and mix with sesame or olive oil in a 1: 1 ratio. Then put it on your head for 20-25 minutes. Avocados are rightly called a vegetable of beauty. It contains a large amount of valuable fats, irreplaceable for dry scalp. It is enough just to stretch the avocado to a homogeneous consistency and apply to the scalp. Rinse thoroughly after 30 minutes. Mask with cocoa. Thanks to this mask, you will not only help your hair, but also enjoy the delicious smell of chocolate. So, we dissolve 2 tbsp. spoon of cocoa powder in 100 ml of warm milk, then separately grind 1 yolk with 1 tbsp. a spoonful of good cognac and combine it with a mixture of cocoa and milk. We apply only to the roots of the hair, warm it with a film and wash it off after 30 minutes. Recipes of traditional medicine against baldness necessarily include such remedies for hair loss as herbs. Here is one way to apply the gifts of nature: Mix the flowers of tansy, the leaves of the nettle, the young leaves (along with the kidneys) of birch, the fruits of sea buckthorn, the husk of onion and thyme in the proportion 3: 2: 2: 2: 2: 1. Then 3 tbsp. Spoons of this mixture brew 0.5 liters of boiling water, we insist 2-3 hours and filter. I massaged the roots of the hair several times a day and, if possible, do not wipe the head after the procedure. To enhance the health effect, drink 1 tbsp. spoon of infusion of nettle leaves daily before lunch for 1 month. I would like to note that massage is one of the components in the treatment of hair loss. And in combination with various masks and infusions gives tremendous results. For massage it is enough daily for 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening to comb your hair with a quality massage brush. First we brush, lightly pressing on the growth of the hair, and then against the growth of the hair. After that, easily iron the scalp with your fingers from the line of hair growth to the crown. We finish massage in the same directions by pressing circular motions. A special place in the activities against hair loss is such a miraculous substance as sea salt. Originated for many millions of years on our planet, the salt contains a storehouse of useful trace elements. Salt has the ability to penetrate deeply into tissues and saturate them with oxygen. However, if you do this, remember the following rules:
- It is impossible to resort to hydrochloric treatment for damage to the skin;
- with dry scalp, the procedure should be done once a week, with oily scalp - 2 times a week;
- Salt is applied only to pre-moisturized hair and scalp;
- after 6-8 procedures a break for 2-3 months is done;
Salt peeling is carried out with the help of the samemovements, as with massage. In the treatment of hair loss in salt, you can add 3-5 drops of essential oils of mint, ylang-ylang or rosemary. Supporters of Oriental medicine can try to combat hair loss based on the principles of Chinese medicine, according to the theory of which, all diseases come from the imbalance of male and female energy. The main provisions of Chinese medicine are based on the fact that with an excess of male energy, yang, this energy begins to leave the body through the head, damaging the hair follicles. For the preservation and restoration of hair should not allow the formation of excess energy in the body and retain excess energy in other energy centers of the body. In traditional Chinese medicine, treatment is performed by methods aimed at improving blood circulation and improving its circulation in the skin of the head. To do this, activation of biologically active points using acupuncture is used. But sometimes the situation develops so that hair loss takes a large scale, and then we are talking about alopecia. Alopecia is a loss of hair in an amount that leads to complete or partial baldness in certain areas of the head. Distinguish the following types of alopecia: androgenetic, focal, diffuse.
This kind of alopecia, which is considered geneticallycaused by the process, occurs most often. In this case, hair loss occurs due to increased sensitivity of hair follicles to androgen. However, in men with androgenetic alopecia, the content of this hormone in the blood may not differ from the norm. Women have another picture: an increased level of testosterone is found in most women suffering from this disease. Treatment of androgenetic alopecia requires a fairly long time. As a rule, combines the intake of drugs that suppress the production of male hormones, laser treatment, phototherapy, cryomassage procedures, treatment with Darsonval currents, mesotherapy.
Mention this disease for the first timeoccurs in Hippocrates and throughout the ages has many different names and hypotheses about the causes of occurrence. And only in the mid-20th century. the right assumption was made that alopecia areata as a result of autoimmune diseases. In Europe, a method has been developed on the basis of which treatment is carried out by provoking an allergic reaction to the scalp by means of special chemicals, which reduces the attack on the hair follicle by cells of the immune system. In our country, corticosteroids and specific immunosuppressors, such as cyclosporin A, are used to treat focal alopecia. However, when drugs are withdrawn, relapses occur. There are also alternative therapies for focal alopecia: laser therapy, ozone therapy, application of Mival-K, an organic silicon compound (1-chloromethylsilatran) synthesized in 1972 by Professor VM Dyakov and academician Voronkov MG
Diffuse alopecia is characterized by a strongstable hair loss throughout the skin of the scalp. As a rule, after eliminating the causes of diffuse alopecia, the hairline is completely restored, since in the case of this type of disease the hair follicles do not die. With proper treatment, the grown hair can be stronger than before. Hair is an indicator of the state of our body. If you have a problem with hair loss, the sooner a cause is found and the proper treatment is started, the greater the chance that you will be able to maintain both the quality and quantity of your hair. Be healthy and beautiful!
