To me the hypothesis that makes most sense regarding hair loss is calcification. This would explain why some people with high DHT/androgen levels don't have any hair loss, and why some with low levels have tons of hair loss. The reason DHT and androgens cause hair loss isn't inherent to androgens themselves killing the hair follicle. What it is is androgens cause more calcium uptake in all tissues, thus why testosterone is needed for bone health. But the problem is with too much soft tissue calcification, you calcify your blood vessels, then can get a heart attack. So to some extent, the calcium fortified foods/etc can be quite bad, as it's excess calcium to calcify the tissues after a certain point. The other thing seems to be the magnesium, vitamin K2, etc, ratios, to again, prevent calcification. I think the bigger thing too and why we see hair loss so prevalently in USA is actually fluoride, again, causing calcification issues, also that fluoride causes hypothyroidism, and hypothyroidism causes hair loss as well.
That said, I take nettle root to boost free testosterone, and it seems to help for that, but I do notice a bit less hair shedding. Not that I've gone bald or anything, but I've finally at 25 developed a widow's peak, haha. So nettle root I think is a real option as well for something to take that likely won't mess you up like finasteride/etc. The PFS stories make it sound scary as hell.
Honestly, the Vick's Vapor rub of even something like capsaicin cream seems like a good idea, in that it would in fact get blood flow to the area. I will try to remember that a few years down the line.
That's quite possible as I've hear some theories (papers in medical journals) that dermal fungus can be a cause of hair loss. The essential oils in Vics (thyme, eucalyptus, cedar, and nutmeg last time I checked) are decent anti-fungals. Using Nizoral shampoo or something might have the same effect.
options in the US: maybe have a shot at a angry bluehaired landwhale and then, prison
options abroad: limitless
In recent years hair thinning is increased to many folds both in men and women. When we saw our parents they are having good hair even up to the age of 40 -45 but now hair thinning and hair loss is the problem associated with the young age also and in both sex. What may be the cause?
Modern lifestyle and stress associated with it cause hormonal imbalance which damages hair. This also leads to various other health-related problems. Nutritional deficiency also plays its role in hair thinning.
Effective step to reduce thinning hair
a) Reduce Stress
b) Healthy Diet
c) Take Supplements
d) Use Ph balanced Shampoo
e) Avoid Gels and Styling Tools
f) Gentle Massage Increase Blood Flow
g) Correction of Hormonal Imbalance
h) FDA Approved Treatment
I agree with you. Castor oil after months of usage made my hair look thicker, so now I'm looking less bald Though after reading articles like this I'm thinking about shampoos with castor oil already in it. Tired of diluting the pure oil and rubbing it in my head. Any bits of advice on that?
