Oils for Hair Loss

 Alopecia-hair loss- can be patchy, or it can result in total baldness. It mainly affects men, but some women are also prone, especially after middle age. In men, the condition is generally inherited. Poor nutrition, hormonal upheaval, and stress are also contributing factors. In women, the most common cause of hair loss is the overuse of hair dyes, permanents, and bleaches. Illness, and the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy can cause dramatic hair loss.
Dietary Factors: Cut down on tea, coffee and alcohol and eat foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals. Vitamin B, C and F (essential fatty acids) are especially good for the hair, as is inositol, found in liver, wheat germ, oatmeal, molasses and yeast. Yeast tablets and lecithin supplements are recommended.
 Other measures: Avoid chemical treatments and wash the hair once a week only, using a mild PH-balanced shampoo.More @ http://rainontheland.com/Hair_Drops_For_Hair_Loss.html
