What helps against hair loss?
The most important points in brief
- In most cases, hair loss is caused by genes.
- But stress and the way you eat and drink also play a role.
- Genetically caused hair loss has a realistic chance of being stopped by the active ingredient minoxidil.
- The medicine cabinet, however, only strengthens healthy hair.
- Dietary supplements with certain ingredients can stop hair loss if it is triggered by stress or malnutrition.
Men are mainly affected by hair loss, but age does not always play a role. Younger men also sometimes suffer from lost hair. But women are also affected every now and then. There is no single cause of hair loss, but the risk increases with age. Most of the time, hair loss has genetic causes, in some cases poor nutrition or stress are the triggers - and occasionally also hormonal fluctuations.
What kind of hair loss can be combated effectively?
It is obvious: If the hair is thinning and genetic factors are the reason, then the loss can hardly be stopped. However, hormonal imbalances, stress and diet can - at least to some extent - be compensated for. In the Kanela online shop we have put together some products against hair loss.
But there is also hope for people who suffer from genetic hair loss. Research and science have proven that the active ingredient minoxidil, a derivative of the pyrimidine compound copexil, can stop hereditary hair loss in men up to 50 and in women. The success rate is relatively high for both sexes. Minoxidil, which is contained in appropriate shampoos, promotes blood flow to the hair follicles, which is a hair sheath that surrounds the hair follicle. This in turn ensures that nutrients are reliably transported to the hair roots.
What can the medicine cabinet do against hair loss?
In ancient times, attempts were made to stop the process of hair loss by massaging the scalp. Self-made tinctures should help, for example a brew made from the boiled-down leaves of the nettle, often mixed with a little vinegar.
This definitely strengthens the hair roots, and a homemade shampoo made from honey, brandy vinegar and onion juice can also have this effect. In this way, at least the remaining hair is cared for and protected. However, these remedies cannot stop hair loss - even grandmother's recipes are powerless.
What effect do dietary supplements have on hair loss?
We expose ourselves to increasing stress, both privately and professionally. Often this stress means that we are not eating a balanced diet. It usually has to be quick and we just want to get full. If we take in too few vitamins C, D and those of the B group, the skin functions are quickly disturbed - and hair falling out can also be a consequence. In addition, those who do not consume enough zinc, iron or biotin (vitamin B7 or vitamin H) risk that hair roots lose their stability.
Some of these vitamins and nutrients are actually found in shampoos, tonics, conditioners or serums. In this way, the substances get directly into the hair root. There is also a selection of tablets and capsules that contain the required substances. Through the regular use or ingestion of these products, the hereditary hair loss cannot be avoided or even reversed - however, the hair loss that is based on stress-related malnutrition can be grasped.
