Hair Loss Remedies

Hair loss remedies come into their own when hair fall begins to exceed regrowth. The average human head has roughly 100,000 hair follicles and each follicle can grow about 20 individual hairs during a person's lifetime.

The severity and nature of baldness can vary greatly and natural products such as Profollica are sometime used to treat male pattern alopecia, alopecia areata, which involves the loss of just some of the hair from the head and alopecia totalis which involves the loss of all head hair, to the most extreme form, alopecia universalis, which involves the loss of all hair from the head and the whole body.

Temporary loss of hair can occur in areas where sebaceous cysts on the head are present for one week to several weeks. Poor digestion, parasites and nutrient deficiencies like iron or biotin deficiency shouldn't be overlooked as possible causes. Some drugs or medications can cause hair loss too. This usually improves when you stop taking the offending medicine.

Some of the medications that can cause hair loss include blood thinners, medicines used for gout, chemotherapy drugs used for cancer, too much vitamin A, birth control pills, retinoids used to treat acne and skin problems, blood pressure medications and antidepressants.

One type of baldness is called traction alopecia which is most commonly found in people with ponytails or cornrows who pull on their hair with too much force. In the past it was believed that baldness was inherited from a person's maternal grandfather. While there's some basis for this belief actually both parents contribute to their offspring's likelihood of hair loss.
