It was previously mentioned that some drugs do contribute to hair loss. However, the nature of some drugs has been used to promote hair growth by certain researchers. One diuretic that is commonly used for high blood pressure—spironolactone—has been proven to block androgen and in some cases, has been used to treat hair loss caused by androgenic activity. Contrary to popular opinion, hair loss and hair thinning is very common in women.
Many women experience a type of hair loss called female pattern baldness. This manifests by a gradual thinning predominately in the crown area. However, it may include noticeable thinning on the sides of the head. It begins in the early twenties but progresses more after menopause. Under normal conditions, the hair sheds at approximately 80 to 100 strands per day. These hairs are replaced during the normal hair growth cycle but with abnormal hair shedding, these hairs are not replaced.
It is important at his point that we identify hair that is shedding against hair that is breaking. Only by careful examination of the hair shaft can this type of hair loss be determined. At this stage, the scalp may become excessively oily. The patient may complain of tenderness in the area. There is also a burning sensation for some, along with excessive itching and tingling. Women with this condition rarely go bald. However, if this condition progresses to baldness, it is almost a certainty that another underlying condition exists.
Androgenic alopecia is a genetic condition for which there is no known remedy as of the present time. However, topical application of Minoxidil has proven to stimulate a measure of growth in some patients. But, if discontinued, the hair falls off. I have created an internal remedy for troubled hair and scalp with my B-Natural Hair Vitamins (take two a day). These vitamins are designed to provide growth. The ingredients consist of B6, B5 and B3 which promote the health and growth of hair. B12 increases the energy at the roots. Vitamin C improves circulation. Vitamin E improves oxygen. Zinc fights bacteria. Iron maintains strength and folic acid helps prevent hair loss. These vitamins are the ultimate in hair restoration. Also, feel the power and tingle by massaging my root therapy scalp simulator drops on your scalp. It’s a leave-in conditioner that draws the nutrients to the root area, expediting growth.
