Gradual baldness is normal for many men. Some of them deal with it and they believe that they do not need hair at all and their lack does not capture their masculinity. Another group of men, in turn, think that hair loss is the first sign of aging so they try to reverse the process at all costs. It is hard for them to come to terms with the fact that they are no longer teenagers but slowly becoming adults.
Scientists from around the world are trying to find a way to stop baldness. They managed to develop an unusually large number of methods for hair loss, some of them are more effective than others. In the article below I would like help men who want to save their hair and to present a number of methods which can be used at home. At the beginning, however, I will discuss the general causes of hair loss. The more you know about this ailment, the easier it will be for you to understand how to fight it.

Causes of hair loss
Generally speaking, each hair falls out at some point since they have a certain lifetime. In most people, new hair grows in place of old hair, and it is worse when they do not keep growing. It is believed that an average person loses one hundred hair a day. If this norm is exceeded, hair gradually becomes to disappear. The causes range from illness, excessive stress to a period of weakness. However, the most common culprit is alopecia. If you can handle these causes and the hair continues to fall out, it means that this is a hereditary problem. In this case, other measures should be taken. (1)
Black radish root has regenerating properties. The juice from the plant should be rubbed into the scalp for several minutes. This method is also used for excessive dandruff and seborrhea. In addition to regenerating properties, black radish also greatly improves blood circulation in the skin. If you do not have a juice extractor, you can grind the root of the plant on a grater and rub the resulting pulp into slightly damp hair.
Olive oil has been used for hundreds of years as one of the most effective cosmetics. It contains a lot of nutrients, including vitamins C, E, those from group B, as well as a large dose of phosphorus and iron. Rubbing olive oil into the scalp nourishes and protects dry hair.
It has been known for many years that ordinary yeast used for baking has a good effect on the condition of our skin. If you suffer from alopecia, I recommend drinking a yeast mixture (remember to boil it beforehand, live yeast can cause damage to your digestive system). You can also apply a yeast mask directly on your hair. Yeast contains a complex of B vitamins and proteins useful in rebuilding hair structure. (2)
Nettle leaves are rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamins C and K, calcium, silicon, phosphorus, sulfur and magnesium. Nettle leaf infusion has a strengthening effect and also prevents dandruff. Many people are convinced of the healing properties of nettle in the case of hair loss, but so far no scientific studies have been carried out confirming this thesis.

If you do not have the time or desire to do infusions on hair loss, maybe you are tempted by one of the many resources available on the cosmetics market? Many of the products contain only natural ingredients, so they are completely safe and will not affect your libido.
