Unfortunately, we are living in a world where at least some level of hair loss is experienced by the vast majority of the population.
Many people have a genetic predisposition to androgenetic alopecia, or pattern baldness, which causes thinning hair in specific places on the scalp. Some even suffer from alopecia areata or telogen effluvium, which is an interruption in the hair growth cycle caused by stress. While some experience hair loss due to poor lifestyle, improper diet, and bad hair care habits.
If you’re experiencing hair loss for any reason, it’s likely a major source of stress that you’d like to find a way to reverse it. In fact, for many people, their hair is a primary aspect of their self-image and sense of confidence.
Here Are Some Ways To Combat Hair Loss:
- Laser caps
- Finasteride (medication)
- Laser hair regrowth surgery
- Hair transplantation surgery
- Derma roller
Many people that suffer from hair loss have seen some improvement with these treatments.
However, most people aren’t comfortable with the concept of taking a pill or applying a treatment full of chemicals to their scalp. Plus, surgical options can be overwhelming as well as expensive.

Most types of hair loss, particularly genetic hair loss is caused by the hormone DHT. A byproduct of testosterone. DHT is found in both women and men. It typically causes thinning in specific locations on the scalp.
If you have a genetic predisposition to pattern baldness, your body likely produces more DHT than the average person, causing your hair life cycle’s growth phase to become shortened.
You can effectively block the production of new DHT and prevent existing DHT from affecting your hair health with DHT-blocking vitamins. These vitamins are made from all-natural ingredients and even include essential nutrients like Vitamin B6, folic acid, and biotin to support your overall health while improving the strength and appearance of your hair.
How Do They Work?
These vitamins include two vital ingredients: Nettle and saw palmetto.
- Nettle has historically been used to treat hair loss caused by genetics in people of all ages, as it has been found to slow the body’s rate of DHT production.
- Saw palmetto has been closely studied for its effects on those experiencing hair loss and has been found to lower DHT levels in both genders.
In fact, many of the nutrients included in the vitamins will increase your energy levels and support general health.
Coconut Oil And Aloe Vera
Though you may have heard of the internal health benefits offered by coconut oil and aloe vera, together they can also improve hair health and reduce hair loss considerably. The fatty acids present in coconut oil penetrate the hair shaft and revitalize the hair’s proteins, strengthening each strand of hair, one by one, and preventing brittle or dry hair.
How To Use Coconut and Aloe Vera To Reduce Hair Loss?
Apply coconut oil mixed with aloe vera directly to your hair to see its full effects. If you have oily hair, you may want to apply it before washing. If your hair is on the dryer side, you can apply coconut oil after washing to improve your hair’s shine, softness, and strength.

Regular Scalp Massage
Often, the root cause of hair loss is hair follicle damage caused by reduced blood flow and oxygen supply to the scalp. Scalp massage can help to stimulate blood flow to the region, effectively rejuvenating the hair follicles and supporting healthy hair growth.
How To Do It The Right Way?
Take a few minutes each day to thoroughly massage your scalp. If you’d like to combine massage with another treatment, you can massage a small amount of coconut oil into your hair to improve its strength and shine while simultaneously increasing blood flow to the scalp.
Balayam Or Nail Rubbing Exercise
