If you notice that your hair is getting thinner, please don’t panic and try every home remedy you’ve ever heard of. Some of them may work, some may not, and some can even be harmful to you in one way or another.
There are many vitamins and supplements that are praised as being the cure for hair loss. A lot of people believe that because they are supposed to be natural, they should be safe. But sadly, the truth is that some of them are only safe in doses too small to actually do any good, and others could be dangerous to your health, but not enough is known about them to really be sure.
Learning the truth is important, so your first step should be to schedule an appointment with your doctor. There are numerous causes of hair loss and it is important to know the cause before you start trying to treat it. Treatment and procedures vary for the various hair loss conditions, and you need a professional to help you figure out which one is right for you.
You may find that your doctor will recommend vitamin supplements for your hair loss. When they do, they should tell you exactly which ones to take and how much of each one. In some cases, like zinc, it is important to have the right balance in your system. For instance, too much zinc can cause a copper deficiency if you aren’t careful, and not enough copper can cause your hair to fall out. The exact opposite of what you wanted.
Saw palmetto is used for an enlarged prostrate because it increases the androgens in the body. Because not enough androgens can be one cause of hair loss, saw palmetto is often sold to men as an “all natural” hair loss cure. But no one knows how it will react with a woman’s hormones, so a female would need to discuss it with her doctor before starting a saw palmetto regime.
It is hard to pin down the health care professionals on the best hair growth vitamins. Some say Vitamin B12, others think iron will do you more good. With so many varying opinions, you really should schedule a visit to you doctor before you begin to use anything to treat your hair loss.
