Thanx alot for all the great information.It’s alalways nice to know there’s hope to better yourself with cheap home remedies rather than spending money you can’t afford at the stores. So thank-you.:-)
First, I’m going to trace back the current “understanding” of male pattern baldness. What do the masses believe is the cause of hair loss, and why do they believe it? Where did that information come from and who wins from this dogmatic view, while others lose?
can sulfur 8 be helpful when growing your hair? The reason why I ask is because last month, I bought some to help me grow my hair out & How must I do the inversion method? Should I use oil & other things when doing it or no?
The key to a good style starts in the shower. We washed and conditioned with L’Oreal B6 Biotin. We then used Dual Stylers by Techni.art Liss and Pump-up (also by L’Oreal) for volume with a velvety smooth finish. I finished the look with Kevin Murphy Shimmer.Shine and a little hairspray!
I always had a good head of hair until my doctor put me on Lipitor to lower cholestrol. My hair got very thin and I didn’t link the problem right away to Lipitor. I started to wonder what new thing was I doing? I decided to call my pharmacist to ask about some side effects. Sure enough, one of the side effects was baldness in spots (alopicia arearta). I stopped the Lipitor and my hair stopped falling out. My hair never really came back to what it was though. However, my hair absolutely stopped thinning after throwing away the Liitor. I have now since dicovered that Liitor has been taken off the market. Within 3 years after this problem, my doctor put me on Avapro for high B pressure. My hair started to thin once again. It was falling out! I don’t know if the Avapro was the culperate, but I certainly got off that perscribed drug. I’m doing natural remedies to lower my blood pressure with a healthy natural diet. I am going to try the amla powder with the coconut oil and hope for the best. I’ll let you guys know if it works.
Hi there I have purchased the Lee Stafford hair growth treatment and leave in conditioner. I am just wondering what the best way to use the treatment is? It says to use in between shampoo and conditioner? Is this best way to use it or do you advise putting the treatment in and leaving overnight before shampooing etc the next morning? Thanks
“We also get quite a lot of guys who are recently divorced or coming out of a long-term relationship, they are back out there on the scene and they want to make a positive change for themselves, almost in the same way a woman might get a new hairstyle after a break-up. They want a little confidence boost, to feel like they are ready to go out there again.
To help boost the method and give your hair an intensive moisturising treatment, every other day or for a few days during the seven, use a natural oil like Coconut Oil, Olive Oil or Argan Oil whilst massaging. If you can, leave it in overnight in a shower cap. More on these oils later.
You want to open pores to clean your scalp which luke warm water will do, then close the cuticles which will help reduce hair loss and frizz. So ensure you finish washing your hair with a blast of cold water.
Hi Meredith. It sounds to me like the chlorine is definitely damaging your hair. Are you using a water-tight cap when swimming? Additionally, are you having it cut regularly? Chlorine will damage your hair, making it more prone to splitting. Regular haircuts will prevent this. I would recommend using a weekly hair treatment, such as coconut oil or a specific hair mask from LUSH to reinject nutrients back into your hair. I hope this helps. Thanks, Steph

My experience using coconut oil is really good, I just love it! It’s just soo mositurizing and conditioning I apply it twice a week and my hair is perfect and very healthy. But only applying oils wont help if we also eat healthy food that will help us alot more! Like foods rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, ex: Flaxseed. Foods also rich in Vitamin B6 and B7 are good for hair and vitamin E and C for strong hair!
Hi Meredith. Sorry to hear you were having trouble with your hair. We often forget just how fragile it can be – it’s really important to look after it! I’m so glad to hear our tips have been helping you out. Here’s to many more years of a happy head of hair!
This look is best described as a warm balayage. It’s definitely one of my favorite styles of balayage because I feel the warmer tones, especially the deep color spectrum of brunettes, give you much more dimension.
Hi there, thank you ever so much for sharing your tips for healthy hair growth. It all sounds very, very good. I’m really interested in hair growth, especially after I too cut my hair into a short pixie cut! Food really is the key to growing healthy hair, almonds and avocados are both delicious and boost your hair growth. You should also try getting some broccoli into your diet if you haven’t already. Please do try the scalp massage, it really can work on some people! Thanks again for sharing.
Hi my name’s Jamee, I’m a 17 year old girl who just graduated from high school. When growing up I was never told of the bad damaging affects of dying my hair so I did it for many years and now for the past 3 years my hair has only grown 2 inches and either breaks off or falls out. My hair has become very very thin and I now wear hair extensions everyday because of the insecurity I feel. I have very oily hair and don’t know what dry shampoo products are good for someone like me so I usually wash my hair everyday. I get my hair cut as regularly as it should but its still no use. I wash my hair in cold water and have used different techniques while washing, none have helped. I’m scared I’ll have to wear a wig when I’m older, and having to buy extensions and take care of them has become such a hassle. I feel like because I dyed my hair so much, it did something to my roots and I don’t know what to do. However, I do not have a very good eating diet and would like tips on that. I plan on using a lot of these natural remedies, if anyone has any input to helping me that would be extremely appreciated. 🙂
Hi Katherine, you don’t have to use coconut oil no. You can use a good hair conditioner or even a touch of olive oil. It makes it easier to massage your scalp, and also provides a good conditioning treatment at the same time.

I recommend this look for anyone with naturally wavy and thick hair that needs some sort of style. It removes weight while adding movement and texture to any hairstyle. It also looks great with it pulled back, keeping a few layered pieces down and around your face. You will always have a cute style even while wearing it up!
I am dealing with hairline close to my forehead the hair just isn’t wanting to grow at all. Several people have said that my hair is damaged and fried an that there is nothing that I can do; I have been eating a ton of fruits and vegetables but I haven’t noticed a difference at all what more can I do for my hair, I am open to any suggestions or ideas that might help because I have been extremely embarrassed about my hair I’ve been walking around wearing a giant black headband.
Hi Ife. Unfortunately, we’ve never tried Indian Hemp, so we can’t advise on this. Let us know how you get on! Hep oil is notoriously rich in nutrients, so I’m confident it will nourish your hair 🙂 Thanks Steph
So I may be the only male in this section but what the heck. My hairstyle is the very bland side parting/quiff which I’ve had for years now and I just want a change! I get regular haircuts which may be every 2-3 weeks but it seems that if I leave my hair longer than this it just stops growing on the sides especially. Any tips would be appreciated as I am hoping to just grow the sides to get an evenly proportioned haircut!!
Mix one tablespoon of Indian gooseberry or amla powder in two tablespoons of coconut oil and heat until boiling. Strain the oil and massage it onto your scalp before going to bed. The next morning, shampoo your hair as usual. Do this on a weekly basis.
Ugh, I just cut off 8 inches and I’m sick over it. Granted I needed a good cut, but it’s too short for me. I am so thankful for this article! Sittin here with coconut oil in my hair and I love the smell!
Thick hair is a hairstylist’s best friend when it comes to event styling. Normally, we’d have to put padding or extensions to make the hair look thicker and do a lot of teasing. With thick hair, all you really have to do is curl and pin things in place!
Hi there, it’s really up to you. I tried all these at the same time and it worked for me, but I have done the inversion method without the other tips at it also worked. I just felt the oils and foods really helped strengthen my hair at the same time.
Too much protein can affect your kidneys. It may also cause your hair to become brittle, although this is rare. It’s best to get protein from your diet and not supplements. You can get protein from vegetables, nuts, yogurt, and other foods.
What it does: The easy-to-ingest powder supplement contains everything hair loves—keratin (the protein that makes up your strands), biotin, and vitamins and minerals—to promote shine, strength, and healthy growth and help reduce shedding.
Alopcia areata is not related to a more serious condition known as cicatricial alopecia, in which the immune system attacks the stem cells in the bulge of the folicle. This results in permanent hair loss.

Why is this pattern of hair loss only in the front and on top? That’s where hormone-sensitive follicles live. The follicles on the sides and back of the head aren’t affected by DHT and usually stay healthy.
