Bold and Bald
By Todd Lange
You've heard the myths and theories regarding hair
loss. You cringed at the fact that only castrated men of ancient societies managed to keep their hair on their heads. Before choosing whether to give up your macho image or having an ever-receding hair line, read up. There are ways to stagger the effects of hair loss.
The key to prevention however, is understanding what is MPB or Male Pattern
Baldness and its causes. To clarify, MPB also happens to women. Surprised? MPB's proper name is androgenic alopecia (androgenic - androgynous, see?) It is also hereditary. It is largely caused by a sensitivity to an enzyme called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This is the end product of testosterone conversion. This is why there are more documented cases of MPB in men since women don't have much testosterone. Partially, this is also a reason why castrated men have reduced hair loss risks.
Despite being hereditary, reversing hair loss isn't a lost cause. Researches have shown different triggers affect the onset of baldness. This only shows that MPB can be reversed or at least, controlled. Diets with high fat content increases DHT production which speeds up baldness. For example, Asian men are found to be in lesser risk compared to American men with their fatty fast food diet. Other than fat, substances to limit or avoid to lessen hair loss include nicotine, alcohol, sugar, salt, and caffeine. Don't feel deprived as seafood are widely recommended as it contains considerable amounts of iodine, a substance that improves hair growth.
As always, a proper, balanced diet is advised to reverse effects of baldness or hair loss. Adequate rest and sleep are also important as these reduces stress and anxiety which can trigger testosterone conversion. In addition, there are also other methods to increase hair growth. Scalp massages stimulate the blood vessels of the scalp, resulting to a more efficient circulation of oxygen and nutrients needed for hair growth. Don't snub aromatherapy as a sissy habit either. Used as massage oil or mixed with shampoo, essential oils such as lavender or bay have been proven effective as a therapy for hair loss. Asian medicine also offers it solution to combat baldness. Water from boiled sage, rosemary, burdock, nettle, and peach leaves is an efficient hair cleanser. Aside from keeping the scalp clean, this solution also thickens hair strands and stimulates hair roots.
Lastly, restoring hair vitality and health is not a speedy process. You shouldn't expect instant results no matter what type of prevention method you used. Be reminded though that excessive and fast hair loss should be consulted to the doctor. As this could be a symptom of a more serious matter, medical attention should be sought immediately.
