With over a hundred million women and men suffering from some form of hair issues, remedies are in big demand. There are traditional methods of curing hair loss and then there are alternative medicines used for correcting hair problems. Some of these alternative methods are questionable and others are proven methods for controlling hair troubles.
Here are some of the best alternative medicines and their effectiveness.
He Shou Wu - This herb comes to us from China. It is believed that this herb can turn hair from gray to black, improve your sex drive, and prevent loss of hair. It comes from the plant root called he-shou-wu that can be found in China, Japan, and Taiwan.
White Iodine - It is believed that there is a connection between an iodine shortage and hair loss. The iodine should be applied directly to the bald spot. In all my researching on hair issues, I have never read about having a deficiency of iodine will cause loss of hair.
Olive Oil - Buy some extra virgin olive oil. With your hair dampened, apply about three tablespoons of it to your hair. Rub it through your hair and let it set in your hair or about three hours. It is best to rap a towel or a plastic bag around your hair. After three hours, shampoo your hair. Repeat this process three times a week
Coconut Milk - Massage some of this coconut milk through the hair down to its roots. Let set for about one hour and then rinse out.
Saw Palmetto - This is the one I use with effective results. This herb comes from the berries found on the saw palmetto palm tree (Saw palmetto tree is on the state flag of South Carolina). This has been used by the Native Indians for hundreds of years to fix urinary problems. It has been prescribed to men with an enlarged prostate to control the effects of it and to reduce the prostate. While using this, they found it re-grew hair. It is now used not only for helping men with an enlarged prostrate but also as an herbal supplement for controlling hair loss and re-growing hair.
These are some of the alternative medicines that people use to stop the loss and re-grow their hair. Some I would question, like the white iodine. But others haven been proven to stop loss and re-grow hair, such as saw palmetto.
Jimmy Chase started losing his hair when he turned 50. He has done lots of studies on loss of hair, in both men and women, to determine what works and what doesn't. He has successfully stopped his hair loss and has even re-grown some of his hair. He wants to help other people learn what he has learned, on stopping hair loss and re-growing hair.
