Preventing Baldness

by: Damian Sofsian

Typically, baldness is the result of hair that sheds but is supposed to grow back naturally. If this occurs, a lifestyle check and consultation with a doctor and nutritionist may help isolate the causes and prevent a progression of the problem. Even though it has not been scientifically established that stress and emotional trauma are contributory factors, there seems to be evidence that the elimination of these does arrest excessive hair loss.

Certain shampoos, conditioners, and hair oils may be fundamentally unsuitable for certain users while they benefit others. If continued hair loss is noted with any particular product, it should be discontinued. Many experts recommend that shampoos and conditioners, no matter how effective any single one may be, should be used on an alternating basis. The theory is that the scalp grows used to certain ingredients and fails to respond after a while.

Scalp massages with nourishing oils, especially those containing arnica, hibiscus, and Indian �amla� is definitely a step in the right direction. Besides being a great stress buster (which may be of peripheral benefit by itself) it ensures that the scalp�s essential moisture equilibrium is supplemented and maintained. This prevents dryness and brittleness of the hair that result in hair loss. A massage also ensures adequate blood circulation and proper oxygenation of scalp tissues. Oil massages are a time-honored means of preventing premature hair loss in the Orient.

If scalp psoriasis and fungal, viral, or bacterial infections are present, the medical elimination of these will definitely reverse certain cases of hair loss. In patients where the occurrence of these is on a chronically recurring basis, treatment will almost certainly prevent further hair loss. Finally, a holistically healthy lifestyle will ensure that, barring extraordinary factors, hair loss will not set in before Mother Nature decrees that its time has come.
