I can tangentially empathize with hair loss, as my dad used to have bald patches on his scalp until he started treating his scalp with.. Was it coconut oil? Bob discusses similar treatments here, from vitamins to evening primrose oil. Very informative, and even if you’re not balding at all, you may be able to enjoy this blog! I know I did. 🙂
Excerpt from Natural Hair Loss Treatment:
One important herb making the rounds in medical cycles is Saw Palmetto. Although most studies of Saw Palmetto have been for the treatment of prostatic disease, more recent studies have been conducted on its effectiveness in treating hair loss. The herb has been found to work in fighting benign prostatic disease by lowering levels of DHT, which is a known cause of androgenic alopecia, the medical term for male or female pattern hair loss. While there are no clinical trials supporting this herb’s usefulness as a natural hair loss treatment, there is some reliable research proving that it can slow down androgen activity within the hair follicle.
