Herbs & Hair
In the 1980s, doctors and patients found out that the drug minoxidil does help grow--and regrow hair. It just didn't work predictably well for many of those who tried it. Ten years and countless trials later, some dermatologists think that a three-drug regimen may be more successful in battling baldness. This less common regimen involves mixing Rogaine (minoxidil), now available over the counter, with Proscar (finasteride), originally a medication for prostate enlargement, and thyroid hormone. The application method is similar to what is suggested on the packages of minoxidil: Rub it into the scalp every day. Of course, this combination treatment will cost more....but early results are promising.
Saw Palmetto Berries
Widely recognized for their potential to diminish an enlarged prostate gland, say studies at major medical institutions such as the University of Chicago. But say palmetto may also help prevent baldness by blocking the body's production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a substance that deadens hair follicles. Male pattern baldness is a form of hormone-related hair loss. But of more concern to many men and women afflicted with hair loss is alopecia areata, a lesser-known disorder that causes hair loss in nearly 4 million Americans. Typically, hair grows in cycles of two to six years, after which hair lies dormant and then falls out. On a normal head, some hair is at the beginning of the cycle while some is further along in the growth cycle. With alopecia areata, some or all of the hair follicles stop growing at the same time, leaving tiny bald spots or complete baldness. Normally, hair will grow back in anywhere from six months to a year. But for those afflicted, the wait can be devastating.
Change is always good...
