Thinning hair affects both men and women alike and is a progressive condition that does not typically leave a person completely bald. It can, however, lead to exposed patches of baldness.
Thinning Hair Causes
A variety of factors can cause hair thinning, including genetics, medications, and stress. Studies have shown that thin hair and genetics are closely connected. You may be more predisposed to thin hair if someone in your family has the same condition. Several medications can lead to thin hair. Birth control, in particular, can affect the texture of your hair. Sensitivity to progesterone and androgens can negatively impact hair. If you are taking a medication and are experiencing thinning issues, speak with your doctor about other birth control options.
Stress can also cause hair loss. Stress from specific physical changes like illness, menopause, and childbirth can be especially problematic. Other potential causes include excess vitamin A levels, low protein levels, over-processed hair treatments, thyroid and autoimmune conditions, pregnancy and weight loss.
Thinning Hair Home Remedies
There are home remedy options that can potentially help with hair loss. While they may not help in filling bald patches, they can add shine and volume, making it easier to conceal those thinning areas on your scalp.
Eggs contain high amounts of protein and protein is good for your hair. Take two eggs from the fridge and break them into a bowl. Use a fork to beat the eggs together. Use a brush to apply the raw egg mixture onto the full length of your hair. Leave the eggs on your hair for about a half hour then rinse it out. You can also add two tablespoons of water and a tablespoon of olive oil to the eggs before beating them together. Massage the mixture into your scalp and leave it for thirty minutes before rinsing it out. Apply the egg treatment once a week for best results.
Castor oil has been used to help with hair loss for generations. You will need to purchase a bottle of liquid castor oil for this treatment. Once you have washed your hair, apply the liquid castor oil. Massage the oil into your scalp and leave it for thirty minutes before washing it out. For best results leave the castor oil in your hair overnight. Just cover your hair with a shower cap before you go to bed.
