If you're reading this, it means you've wither heard of Alopecia, suffering from hair loss or thinning hair or you're wondering "what kind of weird title is this?"
Well, if you're here for the second option, then let me help you. Alopecia (pronounced: Aloe-pea-she-ya) is an autoimmune disorder which results in hair loss or balding. Most people say it is caused by stress, the internet says it is caused by a mistake in the body's autoimmune system, as well as diseases or allergies. There are many different causes to Alopecia, but they all result in one thing, hair loss.
Almost every person I know has suffered from or is suffering from Alopecia, some are treating it while others just leave it, the truth is that there is no cure for Alopecia. But there are treatments which can help with hair growth and maybe slow down hair loss or thinning.
One of the most common causes is stress, now I can't tell you to stop stressing or stop putting yourself in stressful situations. But I can tell you that maybe there is something which can help you.
Many people recommend using oils for your hair, but which one is the right oil.
At first every person I met had recommended Coconut oil, however this just made it worse for me, I started losing more hair and it came to a point where I was almost bald. But just because it didn't work for me, it doesn't mean that it won't work for you. The best way to use coconut oil is to warm it up slightly, warm enough to apply to your hair but not so warm that it might burn you, most oils work well when with heat, that is why whatever oils you apply to your body or hair should be warm in order for it work.
You can leave the oil on overnight or for a day or two and then wash it off. now here's the catch, which shampoo is the best to use?
After doing much research I discovered that most sulphate free shampoos are pretty expensive, so I just stick to my usual Tresemme, however I know that most people don't use Tresseme, therefore you can use any other mild shampoo which agrees with you.
So what happens if you're like me and coconut oil just doesn't help?
Well, I've recently been trying a new method and it seems to be doing well, I have had less hair loss, but I think I'll have to wait a few more weeks to notice any hair growth.
Remember: Hair will not grow overnight or in 2-3 days, it takes time.
So what's my method..?
- HR placenta (image below)
- Bay rum
Mix about 100ml Bay rum with half the bergmotessens and add one ampule of HR placenta to the mixture.
Apply the above mixture onto your scalp and leave it overnight, wash it with shampoo and conditioner as it may leave a strong smell. I usually tie a scarf around my head after applying the oil, so it stays warm and the smell doesn't go all over.
You can also add one ampule of HR Placenta to your shampoo. (However I don't do that).
This is one method which I recently discovered while, just like you, I was looking for a new way to grow my hair and stop thinning.
Once again, these are methods which work for others, but might not work for you. But there's no harm in giving it a shot and trying it out.
I have also heard of onion juice, rice water as well as egg yolk helping people achieve hair growth, some medical professionals have also recommended their patients to use minoxidil as well as finpecia. But that is all up to you, whatever works.
Another important note is that, eating healthy foods and exercising may also stimulate hair growth.
