Natural Remedies

Believe it or not, a proper diet is one way to stop thinning hair. Including a diet rich in vitamins and minerals is extremely important and folic acid is a must. Drinking a juice made of lettuce and spinach juice is a healthy addition. A hormonal imbalance could be an issue as well. As men and women age, their hormones will be off balance. There are natural supplements that help to get the body back in order once more with positive effects on one’s hair. Another effective alternative is a scalp massage. Rinsing with cold water first, a person rubs the scalp vigourously until the skin feels warm. This stimulates the sebaceous glands. Combining the massage with Alma oil can be even more effective. Mustard oil with henna leaves, coconut milk, onion, coriander, castor oil and fenugreek can all be applied as well.

Hair Transplant

A hair transplant may be the most costly resort if all else fails or a person can’t wait. read more on hair transplant
