Hair loss in men is very common and most of it is generally triggered due to alopecia or male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness is a very common problem faced by most men approaching their early 40’s.
Natural Remedies for Hair Loss in Men
Male pattern baldness is generally considered to be genetic and hereditary. In a few cases however, it could also be caused due to certain medications, vitamin deficiencies, etc. It starts with males losing hair above their temples and then continues to the top of their head causing a bald patch to develop in the middle of their scalp. Take a look at some natural treatments for male pattern baldness in men.
Egg Oil or Coconut Oil: Massage some coconut oil or egg oil to the scalp in circular motions. Do not rub too hard as this could destroy the hair follicles further. Do this at least twice a week.
Onion juice: It is also known to have certain positive effects on bald patches. Application of onion juice on the bald patch at least twice a week can promote hair growth.
Antioxidants: Antioxidants help fight against free radicals and improve your immune system. Start eating fruits and veggies which are packed with antioxidants regularly to help fight against male pattern baldness. Bananas, avocados, oranges and honey can all be applied to the hair directly in the form of pulp and boost hair growth. Nuts and berries are also a great source of antioxidants.
Hypothyroidism: It is another major cause of hair loss in men. If you have a thyroid problem, taking steps and measures to keep that in control will also help reduce hair loss.
