Three Natural Remedies To Treat Balding

Alopecia, or balding, is an illness which causes excessive hair loss. It affects areas of the skin where hair is found, like the head, eyebrows, genitals and armpits. Do you want to know the tricks to treat balding?

Hair loss can arise due to stress, poor blood circulation, hereditary reasons, skin diseases or poor diet. The different kinds of hair loss include androgenic alopecia, alopecia areata, traumatic alopecia and diffused alopecia.

Androgenic alopecia

Androgenic alopecia is the main cause in 90% of cases of baldness. It tends to arise due to hereditary patterns which damage the production of testosterone and affect genetic composition.

As a result, the hair follicles are affected and their usual activity is stunted, leading to a gradual reduction in the volume of hair until it disappears.

There is a range of treatments for this scalp condition. Some of these include:

  • FUE method: this is a hair micro-implant technique, which consists of extracting follicles from parts of the head where the genetic composition is not affected (the sides of the head and back of the neck). Once extracted, they are implanted into the clear part of the head.
  • Strip method: this is another hair micro-implant technique, which consists of extracting a very small strip from the back of the neck. The length of the strip depends on the quantity of follicles to be implanted. While the surgeon makes the perforations, a team extracts the hair follicles from the strip removed from the back of the neck.
  • Minoxidil: this is a vasodilator that is administered topically to the scalp to prevent the production of dihydrotestosterone and thus enable the hair follicle to grow normally.
  • Finasteride: this is a drug that suppresses hormonal action, and thus prevents the biological effects of the sex hormones (testosterone).
